Wachesaw Plantation East Expands Dining Facilities and Menu with a Cuban Flair

Opened this spring, the new restaurant at Wachesaw Plantation East Golf Club in Murrells Inlet has struck a chord with golfers, resort guests and local residents alike. With a new inside bar and lively “Coastal Cuban” cuisine, East Grill & Pub has become quite the social scene on the west side of Hwy 17.East Grill & Pub features a relaxed, upscale Cuban theme in its décor and menu, along with a well-provisioned bar and popular beers on tap, including Guinness and Sam Adams Seasonal. East Grill & Pub’s appetizers include Havana hot crab dip and an assortment of wings, including Cuban seasoned and Chipotle Orange.

The pub’s signature sandwich is a classic Cuban made of house braised pork shoulder, ham, Swiss cheese and dill pickles served pressed on authentic, crusty Cuban bread brought in directly from a Cuban bakery in Ybor City in Tampa, Florida. The very popular Cuban sandwiches are available as a half-sandwich or whole sandwich, which could easily feed two people. Those who enjoy cigars can order the “Cuban and a Cigar” special, which is half a Cuban sandwich and a premium cigar for $16. All served with crispy fries and East’s signature Mojo sauce for dipping.

Salads include a Cuban Cobb topped with slow-roasted pork, hearts of palm and crumbled queso fresco, Double Grilled Chicken Salad with grilled hearts of romaine, and the Malecon, a Cuban version of a classic chef’s salad. Other menu items continue the Coastal Cuban theme, including Burgers, fish tacos, a “Cuban Reuben” and The Hemingway, roast beef sandwich with Cheddar, fried onions and horseradish sauce.

The restaurant includes an outside bar and large patio with pergolas and a fountain where guests can enjoy drinks and cigars as they overlook Hole #10 and one of the largest driving ranges in the area.

Wachesaw East’s PGA Director of Golf, Rob Mosser said, “East Grill & Pub is not simply a refresh of our former restaurant. It is a completely new food concept and part of our recently completed half-million dollar clubhouse renovation. Our golfers love the new bar and food, but we are also seeing new guests coming from the community and surrounding offices who are enjoying East Grill & Pub.”

East Grill & Pub is open daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and also offers specialty coffee drinks and free Wi-Fi, making it a convenient location for an afternoon break.

Steve Mays, Vice President of Marketing for National Golf Management Company adds, “We are continually looking for ways to enhance the experience of our golfing guests by re-investing in our products and services. Wachesaw Plantation East has definitely made a big move to assure their guests leave satisfied with the golf, food and overall experience.”
