New Myrtle Beach steakhouse’s happy hour is like “Night at the Museum”

THE LOCALE | Angus Steakhouse & Seafood

THE LOWDOWN | Calling all cowboys and steak fans... There's a new joint in town you may want to check out. It's Angus Steakhouse & Seafood, and that's where we went for happy hour this week.

You will find Angus Steakhouse & Seafood on South Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach in Angelo's Steakhouse's prior location.

Angus Steakhouse & Seafood has an upscale western feel. It's laid back and you'll find a mix of locals, tourists and golfers. There's a small bar as you

walk in, seating a half-dozen people in wooden bar seats with animals hand carved in the backs of the seats.

Off to the right there is a section with more hand-carved wooden chairs pulled up to a wooden table. What will grab your attention, though, is the wildlife

surrounding that table. From a buffalo head to a full-size standing stuffed bear, stuffed creatures inhabit the locale. Other eye grabbing elements of the

decor include a bright yellow plane, a child-sized blue tractor and an armadillo holding a beer.

The bar manager says bartenders do a 2-oz. pour instead of the typical 1-and-a-half-oz. pour so you get more bang for your buck. The drink menu offers a variety of signature drinks such as the Southern Sunset with Southern Comfort and Peach Schnapps. There's also a decent wine list.

Happy hour runs from 4 to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. All drinks are discounted by $1, making domestic drafts and bottles $2.50, house liquors $3 and house wines five bucks. Potato skins are half-price during happy hour along with another select appetizer.

TIPS | Angus Steakhouse & Seafood offers occasional live music. There are three dining areas, including one for private parties.
