Myrtle Beach: It's Known for Seafood, but Great Places for Steak Abound

It isn't always easy to find great steaks in a seafood town, but Myrtle Beach comes through with many great options for those looking for food that comes by land and not by sea. While most seafood spots also offer an alternative menu that includes steaks, it's always a risk when ordering something on the menu that's not the restaurant's top seller. That's why a trip to a real steakhouse, one that does steaks above all else, are a much safer bet, and there are many to choose from. If you're looking for a fine-dining experience rivaled only by the famed steakhouses of Lower Manhattan, New York Prime in the downtown area and Divine Prime at Market Common seem like they were plucked from the Big Apple and relocated to the beach. For a less casual experience, like the hunting-lodge inspired Chuck's Steakhouse or the Brazilian-themed Rioz, offer top-notch grilled meats in a unique setting. But some of the best steaks in town come from some unlikely sources, such as Angelo's Italian Restaurant. Although the name says Italian, the sign says "Greatest Steaks in the Universe," and there are many repeat customers who agree. If you're torn between steak and seafood, go for the surf and turf.
