Our story begins back in 1989 when Carrie (a native) and Bob (a Charlottesville Boy) meet in Richmond, VA after graduating from JMU. We married in 1991 and moved to Raleigh, NC in 1994 to start Ross Construction, Inc, a residential home builder company.
We raised our family and became empty nesters. After 20+ years we decided to retire to Myrtle Beach, which had been our second home for many years.
It was always on Bob’s bucket list to own a bar. After finding the perfect spot, the concept of Spanky’s Pub House was born. The bar is named after our beloved Boston Terrier that you see throughout our logo and establishment.
If you have been to our place, you’ve seen the Chicago Cubs paraphernalia. As a kid, Bob lived in Mount Prospect, a suburb of Chicago, going to Wrigley Field to watch the Cubs play. Bob & Carrie are avid Cub fans, traveling to several games a year and are Myrtle Beach Pelican (Cubs Single A affiliate) season ticket holders.
Our concept is to offer fresh made to order food in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Now becoming known for our unique eggrolls and pudding shots. Our staff is our backbone, many of whom have been here for years. Now going into our 7th year of business, we thrive on our slogan “Just a Cool Little Place.”
