Myrtle Beach’s 5 Best Steakhouses

Myrtle Beach is home to more than a 1,000 restaurants serving every type of food imaginable, but if we are being honest, a great steak is at the top of the wish list for most golfers

Whether you prefer New York strip, filet, ribeye, porterhouse or flank, steak tends to be a winner, especially after a day on the course with the boys. If you want to eat at Outback or Logan’s on your next Myrtle Beach golf trip, one isn’t hard to find.

If you want to step things up a notch (or three), here are Myrtle Beach’s top 5 steakhouses.

New York Prime is THE Myrtle Beach steakhouse if it fits into the budget. It doesn’t matter what you order, it’s going to be outstanding, but you can consider this a vote for the barrel cut filet. The meal and the experience deliver on every level, but you pay for it. If an appetizer and a drink or two are part of the evening, count on spending $100+ per man.

Ruth’s Chris is a nationally-renowned chain, and the Marina Inn location will deliver a memorable post-golf meal. Part of the appeal of Ruth’s Chris is the quality that transfers from franchise to franchise and that’s certainly the case here. If steak doesn’t fit in the budget, go to happy hour and enjoy the filet sliders.

— North Beach Plantation is arguably the area’s finest accommodations property and the onsite steakhouse, 21 Main, (pictured above)delivers a premium meal. The USDA Prime Delmonico ribeye is hard to beat.

— There is a reason Thoroughbreds Chophouse has been regarded as one of the area’s best for nearly 30 years. With six dining rooms, three fireplaces and original art adorning the walls, the ambiance at Thoroughbreds is as enjoyable as the meal, a winning combination.

— A steakhouse named for one of golf’s greats has to make the cut, right? Regardless of the name on the sign, Greg Norman’s Australian Grille is on this list based on merit. The 28 day-aged prime rib tastes as good as an 18th hole birdie feels, and the waterfront location at Barefoot Landing is the perfect complement to the menu.
