We had dinner last night along with a group of friends at Thoroughbreds Restaurant, Myrtle Beach, SC. Our dinner was excellent.We chose the prime rib and Chicken Dijon. Others in our group of 8 were very pleased with their choices. Our waiter...Michael Molner...provided excellent service. He was very friendly and very attentive. We will definitely go back.
