Rossi's, 9639 North Kings Higway (North Myrtle Beach): November 2017   1 comment

Posted at 12:02 am in closing









Back in March, I found myself driving to the beach on the North route, and much earlier than usual so that it was still daylight when I hit Florence. Just East of Aynor the road conditions sign was declaring heavy traffic ahead on US-501. I doubted that was really the case so early in the year, but decided to take the way-North route of SC-22 and finally get a chance to hit Rossi's Italian for dinner, something I had been meaning to do for many years, but, generally being on the South Strand, had never gotten around to.

Well, it seems I should have gotten around to it earlier as I found the place gone.

A media search found two stories on the closing, one from WFMB and one from The Sun News.

Apparently Rossi's closed in November of 2017 due to issues with the management of the Galleria plaza, where the restaurant had been located since its opening in 1983. The plan was to reopen at 7753 N. Kings Highway in April of 2018, but for some reason that never happened. I did find one Facebook reference to them pledging to "Try again", but nothing seems to have yet come to pass.

I guess if I have learned anything writing this blog, it's that when you think I ought to get around to that someday, you're asking for trouble if you don't.

Update 22 June 2023: Adding map icon and updating tags.

  1. Oh wow, that's a shame, I didn't realize Rossi's had closed either. Most of the classic Restaurant Row places are now gone, many due to rising rents. My wife and I met at Cagney's in high school, which is down the street just south of Rossi's. They closed too several years ago.
