Thoroughbreds is the spot for fine romantic dining in Myrtle Beach. They've been around since 1988 and are a favorite among locals.
5. Ombra Cucina Rustica - 1000 William Hilton Pkwy #G-2, The Village at Wexford, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928
Contemporary Italian cuisine with regional flair in a rustic upscale setting make this the most romantic spot in Hilton Head. Well, that and the beautiful atmosphere!
6. Rick Erwin's Westend Grille - 648 S Main St, Greenville, SC 29601
Rick Erwin's on the Westend is a quiet place to relax in a wonderful, romantic atmosphere and make a memory with your significant other. Who knows where a bottle of wine, delicious food and Rick Erwin's might lead!
7. Casa Bella - 120 Chesterfield St S, Aiken, SC 29801
The romantic charm of Casa Bella is in both the food (amazing...) and the atmosphere of this old Victorian house in Aiken.
8. Gerhard's Cafe - 1200 E Main St, Spartanburg, SC 29307
Gerhard's is a big place. If you haven't discovered their "Elizabeth's Room" fine dining space yet then you're in for a delightful surprise. It's romantic to the core.
9. Pascal's Cafe & Grill - 307 W Cambridge Ave, Greenwood, SC 29646
French-American with a twinge of Southern flair. That's what makes Pascal's so special, along with low lighting and some great romantic music and, of course, amazing food!
10. Sam Kendall's - 1043 Broad St, Camden, SC 29020
Maybe it's the historic 1875 building with exposed brick walls or the (probably original) pressed tin ceiling...or it could be the delicious food, but Sam Kendall's is top notch if you're looking for romance.
