Top 2: Private Chef Myrtle Beach

Pictured: Wander Surfside Beach which is available to rent directly on the beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (8 bedrooms, 16 beds).

Whether hosting a corporate retreat or a family gathering, there is nowhere quite like a beautiful beach mansion to hang out in! Wander Surfside Beach is your option!

With views better than most restaurants in the area (you are right on the beach), many opt for private chefs for their evening!

Here are some tips when arranging private chefs:

  • The farther in advance you book the better since they have to shop at markets for fresh food and prep for your evening

  • You can expect to pay $250-$300 a person as a common price range with most chefs having a minimum of $1,000 to $1,500. 

If a private chef experience sounds perfect, here are some local options for you!

#1: A Difference in Dining

Whether you prefer a sit-down multi-course dinner or a buffet, A Difference in Dining's catering team can get the job done. You don't have to worry about food prep, dinner set-ups, and cleaning because they can take care of it for you!

While they're mostly known for their seafood menu, feel free to let them know if you have some preferences. They'll gladly whip up a special menu just for your group.


“Randi made a private dinner for my family while we vacationed at a VRBO in South Carolina. Our group included 9 adults and four kids aged 7 & under. The food was absolutely incredible! Randi's offerings are extensive and we had a hard time designing a menu because everything looked amazing. The dinner was scrumptious and both adults and kids were raving. Our group included a decent amount of home chefs from two coasts so we can be a tough crowd sometimes too . Randi is a consummate professional and very sweet as well. Prices were more than reasonable.” - Lela M.

#2: My Mike Cooks

Mike is another private chef you can consider for your next event in Wander Surfside Beach. He can accommodate parties from 2 to 40 people and you can choose among plated, family-style, and buffet options.

And although he operates as a one-man show, he'll take care of everything from food prep to kitchen clean up. Contact him to plan your customized menu!


“Mike has cooked for my wedding rehearsal of about 25 people, a romantic birthday dinner with my husband and we already have him booked 2 months ahead of time for our next event. Mike is the real deal! He is very professional and personable. No matter how big or small your needs are he takes his time, will not rush you and you can see he really enjoys what he does. Besides the food always being amazing, I love that Mike enjoys talking while he cooks and showing anyone (even kids) what he is doing and turn the experience into a relaxing one. If you are looking for a dinner for two, a wedding rehearsal, family vacation gathering, family dinner (breakfast or lunch) ect. Mike is your guy. He does it all! He cooks everything fresh right in front of you. Handles the set up and cleans up so well that you wouldn't even know he was there. Any left over food he will put into containers for you and store them away properly.” - Alison C.
