Thoroughbreds, a horse racing themed quality restaurant offers a diverse menu that features seafood and traditional items. Caesar salads are prepared tableside, as is the Chataubriand for two. The atmosphere is romantic, and the décor is elegant. Make sure you try the Kentucky Derby pie for dessert. It's melt in your mouth good. Thoroughbreds is fine dining at its best.

We were in Myrtle Beach for our anniversery and decided to dine here.

During Thanksgiving weekend, we ventured out to find a well-established local eatery and discovered Thoroughbreds. The exterior looked like a smaller venue restaurant but once you stepped inside it had an ambience of Victorian elegance frozen in time for this beach comber area. The staff 's attire was smartly suited in black and white and the dining area had a... More
