Local favorite Chuck’s Steak House is back to serve their award-winning steaks
There is an old saying, “You can’t keep a good man (or woman) down,” and the same can be said for a great steak house.
After a brief scare of closing for good, Chuck’s Steak House reopened its doors in June with Dennis Lamberjack still at the helm of operations. “We have been able to retain about 95 percent of our staff and the menu will remain basically unchanged. Why change a good thing?” says Lamberjack.
He looks forward to seeing the familiar faces of both locals and tourists again. Many of his customers are now second and third generation patrons who come back year after year to admire the “rustic elegance” of the post and beam building, filled with museum-quality wildlife artwork, that was built as part of the original “Restaurant Row.”
The warm, lodge-like interior creates a relaxed and informal atmosphere whether you are sitting in the enclosed upper deck overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway or in front of one of the three cozy fireplaces. Attention to detail is met and exceeded at every step of your visit, which is just a part of the Chuck’s dining experience.
In addition to winning just about every award possible for its steaks, Chuck’s is also credited with introducing the salad bar concept to the Grand Strand. One trip to the salad bar and you’ll silence that growl created by a hard day on the golf course or beach. That is, if you haven’t already gotten a head start with the tender, colossal shrimp cocktail and hot, homemade rolls. Happy hour (from 4 to 7 p.m. in the bar and lounge areas) is a favorite time to visit and features specials on select beer, wine and cocktails and some reasonably-priced delicious bites.
It’s hard for folks to pick a favorite entree at Chuck’s. All of their steaks are Certified Angus Beef and cut daily on premise. One of the favorites on the all-star menu is the 14-ounce Sirloin CAB Prime with a signature teriyaki sauce for $26.95. The melt-in-your mouth, tender beef is served to your table cooked to your exact specifications, which is how Chuck’s has earned its reputation as a local favorite.
If you passed on an appetizer, you may want to team up your steak with the Shrimp Scampi, which is gently sautéed in garlic, butter and white wine to perfect tenderness and flavor.
With Chuck’s, you can’t go wrong no matter what your taste buds are craving. Dinner service starts at 4 p.m. and children’s, senior and early bird menus are also available.
