Summer time’s calling me
Golf, Grouper, and Gracious Hosts – Some things should never change.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit Myrtle Beach. Although the purpose of my trip was golf, my dining experience became the focus of my sojourn. The group of men that invited me and organized the three day tournament is in my opinion highly unique. Unique, because this group has been converging on Myrtle Beach for over 50 years. They gather twice a year for the same thing, it never changes, they won’t let it, it does not need to change, it is perfect as is. Golf is the excuse, laughter and needling are nonstop and the food is wonderful in a restaurant that is also largely unchanged.
Much like the group, this particular restaurant has been the mainstay for locals and tourists for a quarter of a century. It has proudly refused to succumb to the trendy fashions that plague so many of today’s restaurants. Like the three generation of friends who meet there, it has no reason to change; nothing’s broke, it is perfect as is.
Not often have I witnessed a restaurant that the more it stays the same the better it tastes. Don’t get me wrong, I love the newest version of Asian fusion and I’ll be first in line to try the latest wok cooked pasta or whatever is claiming to be the cutting edge at the moment, however, the tried and true is definitely worth giving a shout out to.
If you love Italian, if you love seafood, if you love anything blackened, if you love classic Frank to dine by; you WILL love Rossi’s tried and true it is “the good stuff”.
By the way, did I mention that they also have a wonderful Piano Bar aptly named Eighty Eights……a perfect ending to your evening.
Thanks for stopping by,
