Bistro 90 serves only the best USDA prime steaks, seafood, wine, and more

Wine & Dine: Bistro 90 is perfection personified in prime steaks, seafood, and wine.

Bistro 90 may be off the beaten path of the culinary offerings along the main drag on the beach, but it’s been a locals’ mainstay standing on its own on Highway 90 in Longs since 2008.

Well known for serving some of the best steaks, seafood, and bar creations in the area, the rural restaurant is worth the short drive off the coast. Step foot through the archway above the front doors under a stacked stone tower and enter a spacious dining room wrapped in walls painted in a shade of chardonnay brightened with artwork, carpet floors in a rich color of cabernet, and tables dressed in crisp white linens.

That’s just the start of Bistro 90’s delicious dinner experience. Led by executive chef Shane Ratliff and sous chef Pedro Martinez, the back of the house prides itself on serving high-quality, hand-cut USDA Prime dry-aged steaks and chops, known for their exceptional marbling, tenderness, and rich flavor. Bistro 90 is actually one of only several restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area to offer these steaks. Choose from a center-, barrel-cut filet mignon, rib eye, New York strip, a variety of bone-in steaks, Australian rack of lamb, veal chops, and a Japanese Kurobuta cowboy pork chop. And you can top them off with any of their house-made sauces. 

Starter options include Golden Osetra or Royal White Sturgeon Caviar Service, a board of Fresh Fruit, Olives, and Imported Cheeses, Rotating Oyster Selections (on the half-shell or Rockefeller-style), Scallops and Pork Belly finished with fresh lemon, local honey, white wine, and caramelized ginger, and Hudson Valley “A” Grade Foie Gras.

Fresh seafood favorites delivered daily from certified waters include the center-cut Chilean sea bass, center-cut Faroe Island salmon fillet, crab cake and shrimp, U-10 New Bedford scallops, and the evening’s fresh catch. Pasta, chicken, and duck dishes round out the entrees, complete with your choice of tempting salads and sides. Expect all ingredients to be locally and organically sourced farm-to-table from local growers in the Carolinas. 

To make it a true celebration, order a round from the bar that boasts an impressive list of libations: more than 140 bourbons, 40 single malt scotches, and 425 wine selections, as well as hand-crafted cocktails and craft beer. Bistro 90 has been awarded Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence consecutively since 2013, and one of four restaurants within 150 miles to receive the coveted Two Glass Award over the last couple of years.
Bistro 90 is 100 percent a sure bet for impeccable food creations, high-quality wine and drink blends, and service to make the restaurant in Longs a dining destination that will become your next tradition.
