When it comes to cuisine, the Grand Strand is best known for its many restaurants featuring fresh-caught seafood — and for good reason. But, while seafood may be the Myrtle Beach area’s specialty, this strip of the Carolina coast is also a hot spot for a spectrum of other culinary offerings. (And, with more than 1,700 restaurants found on the Grand Strand, this should come as no big surprise.)
To balance out the area’s much-deserved reputation for superior “surf,” let’s take a look at some of the Grand Strand’s best “turf” offerings. During your next visit to the Myrtle Beach area and The Breakers Resort, check out some of these top spots for great steaks:
