I expected better from this place. For steak house averaging over $100 a person I had high expectations. The service was good, but food could certainly be better.

My second visit and probably will not return. The food and service was good but not the value I expected for the price. Dining room we were led to seemed musty, tired and dark. Only one or two other tables occupied. Coffee terrible for $3+ per cup.

We had one of the best meals in all of Myrtle Beach. The food was great, the atmosphere was perfect and our waiter Josh was the best ! The timing of the food from drinks, appetizer, and meal was perfect. We also had a coupon which they glady accepted. It was a perfect night. Thanks Josh !

This place has the London West end Club feel. A drink at the well-stocked bar, esp. if you like Scotch and bourbon. Steak are the speciality, complemented by well cooked garlic mash and vegetables. The asparagus is particularly good. The service is pretty faultless too.

Great atmosphere however the steak (filet) was only average. It was 9:00 on Friday and the bartender was closing down so maybe this is an aberration.

After many years' absence, my husband and I decided to give Thoroughbred's another visit. Before going in to dinner, we enjoyed a glass of wine in the bar (with Happy Hour prices!) along with an order of spring rolls. The rolls were crisp and not at all oily, with a spicy dipping sauce, but the veggie filling needed to be... More
