Google Business Listing Not showing on Google Maps for primary listing

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have "restaurants" listed a my primary business category and "southern restaurant" as one of my secondary.  We have a 4.4 rating.  When you do a search in Myrtle Beach in maps however after looking through the first 60 listings we can not be found, despite being more highly rated AND with a lot more activity than othe listings.  What can I do to remedy this?

 

This is my listing: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Tupelo+Honey+Cafe/@33.6713353,-78.9743336,13z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1s...

 

Thank you and really appreciate any help!

FWIW
I get you on page 14 (fourten) of all search results for "Restaurant near Myrtle beach".

And study this great article provided by MOZ

Hi @Cloud U

 

I'm sorry but I can't duplicate your results. Searching from Australia for "southern restaurant myrtle beach" I get your restaurant as #3

And if I set my location to Myrtle Beach, and do the same search I still get you at #3.

 

If you're not seeing something similar, could you provide a screenshot of what you are seeing please?

Sorry...I should clarify. I see us for Southern Restaurants but not for just Restaurants.

Thank you! Do you know why we would show up so low though? We are very highly rated with lots of visits...the logic does not make any sense to me.
