Question: What popular dinner food comes in over 16 different cuts and can be flavored and cooked in (maybe) hundreds of different ways?

Hungry yet? Get your fill at one of these 10 best steakhouses in South Carolina:
You’ve probably never had a steak like one from Burwell’s. They understand that creating a perfect steak is a process that doesn’t just happen overnight (literally). They start with a fresh cut of angus, prime or wagyu, then age it in their custom cooler, apply only flavor-enhancing seasonings at just the right time (yes, there’s a “right” time to season), and cook it to perfection over a wood-fire. Your taste buds will recognize the difference.
This authentic New York-style steakhouse channels the eatery style of the 1940s with an upscale vibe. Here you can find some of the best prime aged beef, lobster, baked shrimp and a private wine room.
The most glorious flavors from around the world meld together at Rioz. From savory tender steaks to pork, lamb, and poultry served tableside by Gauchos to their variety of sushi and salad options to their more acclimated flavors like polenta and fried bananas—you won’t walk away hungry!
Folks might come here for the eclectic variety of meats from land and sea, but a beef steak here is anything from typical. Alongside an offering of elk, alligator, ostrich, buffalo and other not-so-common options, their “tame game” selections pack huge flavor and deliciousness.
What’s better than fresh steaks and meats carved tableside? How about ones that are all-you-can-eat? This Brazilian-style steakhouse has three locations in South Carolina (the other two are in Columbia and Charleston), and offer an extensive salad bar, sides, traditional Brazilian dishes, and a conga line of 16 different types of meat making their rounds to your table served by Gauchos.
This high-end steakhouse features some of the highest quality steaks you will ever taste, along with an impressive wine list to match. But something you won’t find in traditional steakhouse settings is their prize lobster of the night catching a ride in a red Radio Flyer wagon around the restaurant for guests to “ogle and order,” as they say. Fine dining has officially become fun dining.
This little historic town is hiding one of the South Carolina restaurant scene’s best kept secrets—a full menu of fine dining you’d only expect in a much larger metro. Their certified angus prime and choice steaks are aged for 40 days, then grilled on ultra-high heat until they’re nothing short of delectable. You can also dive into other choice dishes, like lamb, salmon, and crab cakes.
Serving up only Prime USDA steaks, you can expect high quality seared into every meal. They also feature savory treats like mushroom ravioli, ossobucco, and pan fried chevre for refined palates.
Once you sink your teeth into one of their 28-day dry-aged meats, you’ll never want to experience a steakhouse any other way. Their award-winning fare comes second to none on the Grand Strand, along with an upscale atmosphere and total dining experience to complete your meal.
Nothing ends a good day of golfing like the perfect meal. Once you put away your clubs, make your way to Kiawah Island Golf Resort and settle down for a steak at this AAA 4 Diamond steakhouse and sushi club. They source their meat from local farmers, offering a variety of wet- or dry-aged steaks that won’t leave you disappointed.
