Find The Beach’s Best Chops at Thoroughbred’s
Those seeking the absolute best chops in town should look no farther than Thoroughbreds Chophouse & Seafood Grille. This upscale eatery has been serving the best steaks at the beach since 1988 and it’s not hard to see why. Their secret isn’t really a secret at all – quality ingredients prepared with the upmost care and attention to detail. In addition to superior steaks, Thoroughbreds also offers an array of succulent local seafood dishes that are sure to please even the most selective palette.
Start your meal off right with one of the tantalizing appetizers. The escargot is prepared in a traditional fashion, marinated in a garlic herb butter, topped with brie and bread crumbs then baked to perfection while the caprese salad offers a fresh beginning. Enjoy the “Angels on Horseback”, bacon wrapped seared scallops, for something decadent or indulge in the lowcountry crab cake, made with fresh lump crab, for a true beach experience. Some guests even order a few small plates and enjoy a tapas style meal!
Where Thoroughbreds really shines is with their signature Belmont Steaks. These chops are hand selected by the chef and aged to perfection with just the precise amount of marbling for optimal flavoring. Options include tender cuts like the filet mignon and more succulent selections like the ribeye and a New York strip for those who wish to enjoy the best of both worlds. Thoroughbred’s also offers a slow roasted prime rib which sells out just about every evening so be sure to get there early if this is your chop of choice. Finally, they are one of the only area restaurants to offer a chateaubriand bouqetiere, a premium cut of beef that is seasoned and roasted in house and then served tableside. All steaks are served with a house salad and sides, ensuring that you won’t leave with an empty stomach.
Are you looking for something a little lighter or in the mood for something nautical and fresh? Not to worry, though steaks are Thoroughbred’s specialty, the chef is also quite skilled at creating flavorful seafood dishes. Spice things up with the Seafood Fra Diavola, loaded with shrimp and scallops, roasted tomatoes, onions, and spinach and tossed in a spicy garlic sauce, served over linguine or enjoy cuisine with an Asian flare with the Waimea Ahi Tuna, pan seared and served over an Asian slaw and finished with a wasabi-ginger vinaigrette. Of course, there are more traditional features, like the Salmon Provencal and the Lowcountry Crabcakes.
Still not convinced? Thoroughbreds also offers other main entrees that are sure to catch your interest, like the Veal Francaise, Chicken Dijon, New Zealand Rack of Lamb, Roasted Duck, and even Eggplant Parmesan for the vegetarians (or devout eggplant lovers) in the group.
A meal wouldn’t be complete without dessert, of course. The dessert menu at Thoroughbreds is decadent enough for one to make SURE they save room after your entrée. Those seeking the richest of rich will want to indulge in The Tripple Crown, layers of chocolate mousse between dark chocolate sauce and a white chocolate mousse, or the almost sinful New York Style Cheesecake. Fans of the traditional will appreciate the artfully crafted Apple Spice Cake or the tart Key Lime Pie while those who want the full experience can order the Bananas Foster which is flamed tableside. If you just “don’t have room for anything” you can try and squeeze in an order of the Grand Marnier Crème Brulee, a lighter alternative. From uber decadent to light and airy, the dessert menu is an absolute must during a trip to Thoroughbreds.
Family, friends, and great food are all things that you can expect to experience during your visit to Thoroughbreds Chophouse & Seafood Grill. The hand selected chops are among the best on the East Coast and the professional staff will ensure that your evening goes off without a hitch. After one trip, this Myrtle Beach staple will quickly become an annual adventure during your beach vacation. Call (843) 497-2636 for more information and reservations.
