I have passed this restaurant for years visiting down here, and now as I have moved here, I decided to set up a reservation for our 47th wedding anniversary on November 18,2014. Upon arriving with our friends, we were sat at table #1, directly in front of the fireplace. Wow ! Nice and cozy on a cold evening. We all... More

Harley KN, Thank you for writing a review of our restaurant. I find it hard to believe that a customer could find a better meal at an IHOP, than here at Thoroughbreds Chophouse.

Went here as it was billed as an up market steak restaurant. What we got was a dark table and mediocre food. My wife's filet mignon was acceptable but my rib eye was poor quality and way past the medium I ordered. Definitely not recommended

yogbear, Thank you for writing your only review on this website about Thoroughbreds. I apologize that you had an inadequate experience. However, I hope that in the future, similar issues can be addressed while at the establishment, rather then posted to an extremely popular website. Our management team will go to any length to fix a problem that a guest... More

I went there for first time last night. I was torn between the filet and the prime rib. After much consideration I went with the prime rib. I was not disappointed. Ordered it medium rare, it was very tender, could cut with a fork! The sides were amazing too and I thought the service was exceptional seeing as how we... More

Another of our "must go" establishments when in Myrtle Beach. It is also become a tradition to order the Chateaubriand for two. This year was no different and once again we left satisfied.

Dined with friends for late dinner on a Sunday night. Steaks were OK, cooked to temperature, but a bit tough. Sides were pitiful. Shrimp cocktail lived up to its name, "shrimp". Wine prices were reasonable, but choices were thin. Service was good, but expected more from this grand old restaurant on the Grand Strand. We were the only couple in... More

I was part of a group of 42 who ate in a private dining room. Usually, one has come to expect less than satisfactory service and food quality in such a setting. However, each person praised both the food quality and the service. Both the tenderloin beef and salmon entrees were outstanding.
