Thoroughbreds at Myrtle Beach

Thoroughbreds is considered a five star restaurant at Myrtle Beach.  This is definitely for the well employed or for special occasions!  Daryl and I had a pre-Valentine's Day dinner while visiting the beach in February. We were seated in a gorgeous room right in front of a fireplace. It was quiet and romantic (until the loud couple arrived). We both ordered appetizers. Shrimp and Grits and the Pecan Encrusted Duck. I thought the duck was a little overcooked, but still had great flavor! Daryl dogged down the shrimp and grits, so it must've been good!  We both ordered the 6 oz filet mignon, which came with mashed potatoes and a house salad. I recommend trying their house dressing, which is a poppy honey mustard. It was delicious! The filet mignon was perfectly cooked! We finished off the evening with cheesecake and the Kentucky derby pie. The cheesecake was really rich and I think it needed a bit more sugar. The Kentucky derby pie was like a chocolate chess pie. It was very good! The service was excellent! In the middle of our dinner, another party was seated next to us and they were quite loud, otherwise, I would've said that it's very romantic and cozy.  We were stuffed to the gills when we left.  :)
