Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and love is in the air! Here are a few of the most romantic restaurants on the Grand Strand to get you in the mood — for food, of course! After all, they say the way to the heart is through the stomach. These locally owned and operated fine dining establishments are truly one of a kind, just like your sweetheart. Reservations are strongly recommended.

The Library

If you’re passionate about good food and good books, this award-winning Myrtle Beach restaurant will make your heart flutter. Considered one of the finest restaurants on the Grand Strand since 1974, The Library has tuxedoed waiters and a dining room lined with bookshelves. The chef prepares fresh gourmet cuisine daily, with specialties such as Steak Diane with creamy mushroom demi and Duck L’Orange. Enjoy a glass of wine from an ever-changing wine list, and a tradition of table-side service. Then finish your meal with one of their famous Flambe desserts!

Thoroughbreds Chophouse and Seafood Grille

Offering some of the best steaks on the Grand Strand, Thoroughbreds Chophouse and Seafood Grille has been adored by locals and visitors alike for nearly 30 years. The table-side service is top-notch, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The six dining rooms are adorned with oil paintings and photographs of famous equestrian champions. There are two fully stocked bars as well, and three fireplaces to keep things cozy. The menu is prepared with locally sourced ingredients. Options include a wide selection of steaks including filet, prime rib, and Chateaubriand for two, as well as seafood, chicken, pork tenderloin, and rack of lamb.

The Brentwood

This upscale restaurant is located in Little River, close to North Myrtle Beach, in a lovely and historic Victorian house. Also a top Grand Strand wedding venue, The Brentwood Restaurant and Wine Bistro specializes in Low Country French cuisine. Award-winning favorites include Southern Bouillabaisse in a saffron lobster broth and Shrimp and Scallops Chardonnay over angel hair pasta. The dessert is equally delicious and includes Belgium Chocolate Mousse, Crème Brulèe and profiteroles — cream puffs with vanilla ice cream, warm ganache and toasted almonds.

Benny Rappa’s Trattoria

Benny Rappa’s Trattoria is North Myrtle Beach’s best kept secret. Perfect for an intimate table for two, this quaint little ‘Ristorante’ offers freshly prepared, authentic Italian cuisine, with a LED-lit chalkboard menu that changes daily. Past specialties have included Chicken Carbonara, Lobster Ravioli Alla Vodka, and Clams and Mussels with White Wine Sauce, but you will have to wait and see what the chef will be cooking up for Valentine’s Day! After a delicious meal, why not share some Tiramisu or Gelato with your amore?
