Andrew Fortner is an award-winning chef who runs the kitchen at Croissants Bistro & Bakery where he has been the executive chef since 2014.
He came to the Grand Strand from Richmond, Virginia, in 1992 as a student at Coastal Carolina University in the marine science program. To earn money while studying, Fortner got a job at a local restaurant. The part-time job turned passion led him to earn a degree through the culinary program at Horry Georgetown Technical College.
Fortner held jobs at other local restaurants and was previously executive chef at the Sea Captain’s House in Myrtle Beach where his dishes were called “Best Seafood Restaurant” by Southern Living Magazine four years in a row. At Croissants Bistro & Bakery, you’ll find Fortner dishing up scrumptious classic Southern and French cuisine.
