12/2/06..Our fourth trip to Carolina Roadhouse

FABULOUS again! :nanner:
This time around we had two friends from PA with us and they were absolutely "wowed" by the atmosphere, the quality/quantity of the food, and the incredible service. They loved it so much, it is now on their list of "must do restaurants in MB!"

A few things to note:
1. The "loaded" baked potato is a meal in itself.
2. The garlic mashed potatoes are to die for!
3. The hushpuppies are excellent - a tie w/ Drunken Jacks for #1
4. The leftovers were just as tasty the next morning at 10am! :shock:

From our Dec. 2006 trip:


Dinner was at the Carolina Roadhouse. We have found our new favorite restaurant in MB. This place was simply amazing. The house salad was even better than all the raving we had heard, and the croissants were to die for (we used the coupon on last trip's Burro Loco receipt). Dakota's kids meal was the biggest I have ever seen and included baby carrots and "Grandma's Cookies" along with his generous portion of chicken tenders and fries. Marsha and I both got the Filet Mignon and huge baked potato. It was more food than one person should ever eat and well worth the money. The service was near top notch. We will be back and may have found our new "first night" meal.

Well, I had the Prime Rib at Carolina Roadhouse and it was excellent. It was cooked perfectly and was thick and juicy. It was tender enough to cut with a butter knife. The salad was very good and I enjoyed the house dressing, a honey mustard and hot bacon combo. I really loved the garlic mashed potatoes. I would recommend you try them as your side instead of a baked potato. This could possibly be the best restaurant we have eaten at in Myrtle Beach. We have so many places we love to go, but I would have to put Carolina Roadhouse at the top of the list for now. I really enjoyed trying alot of new places this time and if it weren't for the message board we might have never went to Carolina Roadhouse or any of the other places we went.

Sat. 5/5

We left the house around 8:30 & arrived in MB sometime after 9pm. I wanted to compare Carolina Roadhouse against Baron's. It had been a couple years since we dined at Carolina Roadhouse & judging from the trip reports, food/service had not changed.

We ordered (2) NY Strips, (1) coke & (1) tea

Average. Steaks were ordered medium well & served raw. Sent back & still not right. Had to ask for the dressing we ordered w/ salads.


Our waitress was above & beyond professional.
She had dealt w/ a drunk for over an hour.
This guy hadn't a clue where he was & the lady with him was pleading with him to stop drinking. Not sure about local law, but if it had been my restaurant, the 1st time he grabbed a patron or waitress, I would have escorted him off the premises. I vision liability issues, civil suits from women who were touched ....

10pm on a Saturday night is not a good time to dine anywhere.
We will try Carolina Roadhouse again, before dark.

Absolutely the perfect place for a first dinner in Myrtle Beach!!!

Before leaving the resort I phoned and requested call ahead seating for a party of 4 (myself, hubby Frank, daughter's Janine 18 and Jen 16) for approximately a half hour later which would have been around 7:55 PM. Was pleasantly surprised to be told they would hold the place on the list for up to 50 minutes.

First thought upon spotting the restaurant? What a lovely place! Lots of windows with a nice warm lighted glow coming from them. Very welcoming. First thought upon walking inside? Well that was a tie. How beautiful competed with whoa there are a lot of people waiting to eat. Best thing? That one tiny phone call walked us right past the line and we were seated within 2 minutes.

The restaurant was very clean and just beautiful to look around with lots of wood features/tropical feeling decor and a bar in the center.

Our service was fantastic and our waiter even took the time at the end of the meal to check our directions to Wal-Mart Supercenter for us to make sure they were correct despite the place being busy. He never made us feel rushed either.

The food? I'd give it an above average and will share this was my oldest daughter's favorite restaurant of our stay (they all tied for me :clown: ). We started with the creamed spinach nachos and an appetizer sized portion of hush puppies recommended by traderboynh from this board as not to be missed. He was right. They may have been the best I've ever eaten and with 10 only costing $.95 they may have been the best bargain of the trip too!

I ordered the tenderloin medallions, hubby the combo platter with fried
blue crab claws and large shrimp, Janine the club sandwich and Jen the loaded chicken Albuquerque. I opted for the salad with the house dressing a honey mustard and hot bacon combo and garlic mashed potatoes (mmm, my tummy is rumbling remembering), hubby too had a salad with fries, Janine garlic mashed potatoes surprising with a sandwich and Jen also had the garlic mashed. We all agreed everything was delicious! I had a margarita as the ice cream machine was broken so no pina colada, hubby had 2 N/A beers and I think the girls had pop, but I'm not totally sure on that. I snuck a fried crab claw (hadn't had one before) and it was great!

Only complaint heard was "boy am I too full" and that there was no room for dessert.

Total cost for 2 appetizers, 1 alcoholic drink, 2 N/A beers, 2 pops, and 4 entrees was $124 and change. I'll leave what to tip up to you, but we tipped around 18% as the atmosphere, food and service were very good.

Marla, you should be a restaurant reviewer in your free time. Great report!

I think it's safe to say that Carolina Roadhouse is the most consistently positively reviewed restaurant on this board. However, my first exposure to it was less than impressive.

For two years I had been reading about how great the place was but had never tried it myself. Then while here on vacation we decided to try it for a late lunch. For some reason I ordered the "Killer Dog", which is a regular hot dog on a plate that they lay out on the ground out in the parking lot and then have a front-loader pour about 3 cubic yards of chili on it. Well, I like chili as much as the next guy but I was really in the mood for the hot dog that day. To make a long story short, I had to use crampons, two pic axes, and a miners helmet to find any sign of a hot dog. I was so consumed and frustrated by the search that I didn't notice how great everything else was (salads, appetizers, and desserts). So for almost two years we didn't go back and I continued to scratch my head about what other people saw in it.

Then I decided to give it another try, this time assiduously avoiding the Killer Dog. The rest, as they say, is history.

So, is California Dreaming and Carolina Roadhouse about the same in menu and quality?

Sue,
IDENTICAL in quality...very similiar in menu (give or take a few entrees) - this is based on Carolina Roadhouse vs California Dreaming (Surfside).

We haven't tried the CD in NMB yet but we can only assume it's all good...have heard the same great reviews of that location!

We ate at the CD in NMB in 2007 and it was good but not as good as CR, IMHO. Maybe it was an off night, but to me, still none better than CR.

Both Carolina Roadhouse and California Dreaming are wheelchair accessible. CR has ramps inside for getting to different levels. They are not too steep. If crowded (and usually is) it can be a little tight manuvering a wheelchair to the table.

California Dreaming in NMB is a newer building and is wheelchair accessible. It was a little dark as I recall inside but nice. Seems like they had several handicapped parking spaces near the front door.

I was at CD in NMB in May on a golf trip. Yes. it was a little dark in there. The food, however, was exceptional. Everyone in our group raved about their dinners, and my NY Strip was exceptional. Great flavor, and cooked perfectly to my liking. I would highly recommend.

This place was great. It has a very open air feeling though it's dark. Does that make sense? The ceilings seemed very high, tons of windows along one side, but the table was black as night. Have no clue how they manage that. We were against the right hand wall as you enter. Needed a flaslight to read the menu.

The food and service were above par. I had prime rib, Paul had a NY strip, and Sy the filet. All were cooked perfectly. The loaded baked potato was gigantic and Sy said his mashed taters were so delicious. I also had a strawberry frozen margarita...WHOA!!! It was so yummy!! Paul had a Blue Moon with an orange slice. Sy had about 6 glasses of tea :bounce: .

All in all a very pleasant meal with very large portions. I believe the bill came to around $100 for the 3 of us.

I have been to both CD and CR now and prefer Carolina Roadhouse. Don't ask me why both are dark but CD seemed darker. I only went to CD last year because I wanted to try their She Crab soup. It was very good along with the House Salad and Croissants which is what me and my both ordered. When we went to CR a year before we had a fried seafood platter which was good and we wanted to try crab claws but I was not impressed with them, maybe if the crab claws were not fried thus enabling us to use a fork to extract the meat I did not like the big piece of cartilage in between but we had the salad for the first time and told my self all I needed next time soup and salad is all I needed. I would return to CR again this year but I really want their She Crab which is only served at CD. Is the CD in Myrtle Beach any nicer than the one in Garden City?

Sunday evening we visited one of our family favorites Carolina Roadhouse. I literally have been waiting on this meal for months. We arrived at Carolina Roadhouse around 5 with call ahead seating. There was beginning to be a line outside but all 7 of us we were seated immediately. Can't beat that!

Of course the salad was excellent along with those hot buttery croissants. We were just all in heaven at this point. Yummy....

Ryan had the New York Strip and the bite I had was tasty. Ryan looked liked he inhaled his meal to me but said it was not his best steak at the Roadhouse.

Doug and I shared the Prime Rib. He got a loaded potato while I got garlic mashed potato's

Doug and I both agree this was probably our least favorite meal that we have ever had here. The steak was just not that good and my garlic mashed potato's were terrible :cry: . Our services was not good and I totally believe it was because we had a party of 7 and our waitress knew she already had her tip. Some of you know I am very big on quality service. We are hoping this was just an off night and I am sure we will return next with our fingers crossed.

Carolina Roadhouse only gets *** from our family this year.
