These 5 Top Myrtle Beach Steakhouses Definitely Make the Cut

For true carnivores, there are times when nothing short of a steakhouse meal will satisfy. And often, these times tend to arise on vacations — when treating yourself to culinary splurges is, for many of us, a big part of the getaway’s allure.

Fortunately for both meat lovers and vacation lovers visiting the Myrtle Beach area, there’s a long list of places that can grill your ribeye, T-bone, New York strip, filet mignon or other cut of choice to perfection. But even with so many exceptional steakhouse offerings in the area, only a handful can be considered the best.

Ready to treat yourself to the perfect cut of meat during your Grand Strand getaway? Head for one of these five top steakhouses in the Myrtle Beach area (listed in no particular order):

New York Prime

Found on 28th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach — and located about 3.3 miles south of Monterey Bay Suites — New York Prime has been winning “best steak” and diners’ choice awards on the Grand Strand for over two decades. And while the fresh seafood such as Oysters Rockefeller and Live Maine Lobster served here are delicious, the USDA Prime-only steaks — aged for 28 days and served “Pittsburgh style” with a slight exterior char — claim the spotlight. Whether you choose the Delmonico Steak, the Center Cut Filet of Ribeye, the Porterhouse for Two or another choice cut, you won’t be disappointed with your steak’s flavor.

Ruth’s Chris

Located on Marina Parkway in Myrtle Beach about 2.6 miles inland from Monterey Bay Suites, the local Ruth’s Chris Steak House is part of a nationwide (and even international) chain known for its succulent and scrumptious high-quality steaks. Appetizers, soups, salad and seafood are all delicious options here, but the steaks and chops are of course the main attraction. Can’t-go-wrong choices in this area include the Ribeye, the Filet, the Porterhouse for Two, and specialty cuts like the Tomahawk Ribeye and the Bone-In Filet.


Found on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach about 3.6 miles north on Monterey Bay Suites, Thoroughbreds Chophouse has been serving high-quality cuisine in a fine-dining atmosphere for nearly 30 years on the Grand Strand. Delivering on the establishment’s promise to “overwhelm your palette,” the steakhouse’s wide-ranging menu includes a long list of appetizers, soups, salads and sides to choose from, along with a tasty selection of seafood, venison, poultry and pork entrees. But the “Belmont Steaks” are what draw most diners into the establishment, and the delicious options here include the Prime New York Strip, the Prime Filet Mignon, the Prime Chophouse Ribeye and the Prime Rib.

21 Main

Found on the property at Monterey Bay Suites’ sister resort North Beach Resort & Villas, 21 Main Prime Steakhouse is reached via a scenic 7-mile drive north from Monterey Bay. Offering world-class dining in an elegant setting, the award-winning restaurant’s menu offerings include appetizers, soups, salads, a selection of raw bar like Jumbo Lump Crab and House Oysters on the Half Shell, and even a sizable sushi menu. Pork, poultry, seafood and veal are also tasty options that won’t disappoint. But steak seekers will likely be focused on the prime and specialty cuts menu, which includes favorites like Prime Bone-In Ribeye, Prime New York Strip, Prime Tomahawk Ribeye and 1855 Black Angus Center Cut Filet Mignon.


Serving up “the Greatest Steaks in the Universe,” Angelo’s Steak & Pasta is located on South King’s Highway in Myrtle Beach about 7.5 miles south of Monterey Bay Suites. The steaks served here are cut on-premise, then seasoned and served up hot on a sizzling platter. The cut selections on offer include the Ribeye, New York Strip, Porterhouse and Filet Mignon. And for those in the mood for a different type of dinner, Angelo’s also offers an all-you-can-eat Italian buffet featuring favorites like lasagna, spaghetti, meatballs, ravioli, stuffed shells and pizza.
