Not only can you get a juicy roast prime rib at The Parson"s Table, but you can eat it inside a church, too. The location remains very much the same structure that it was in 1885, when Little River Methodist Church was built.

We went to dinner last night at The Parson's Table with the extended family, here on vacation for our annual beach trip. What a wonderful meal!

I had heard of The Parson's Table for years, but for whatever reason dined at restaurants around Little River and NMB, many on the same level. It was worth the wait. I will dispense with detailing the atmosphere, except to say that it was very comfortable. Noise level was low, and the rooms were small without feeling too broken up.... More

We returned to Parson's Table in August 2015 for dinner as our first experience in August 2014 was amazing. Our waiter was very attentive and we were interested to learn that he was actually a landscaper. Our dinner, and the service was great and we will definitely be back next April when we return to Myrtle Beach.

Just because you are at the beach doesn't mean you can't find fine dining as evidenced in a recent trip to The Parson's Table in Little River, SC. We made reservations via "open-table" requesting a quiet, non-smoking table. Our reservations were spot-on and we were seated immediately. White table cloths and fresh flowers graced every table and set the stage... More

We had varied dishes from the she crab soup to the lamb (1/2 rack) the filet in bacon w/ red wine demi glace, the prime rib was excellent and my husband had the duck which was not medium but well done, so a little rubbery we told our waitress, she was very accommodating . The server was knowledgeable and friendly.... More

Since 1971 we have vacationed in North Myrtle Beach, We thought that we had found every great restaurant the area had to offer, Boy were we wrong. We knew the Parson's Table existed but we were told it was a German food restaurant. Bad information again. This restaurant ranks in the top 5 restaurants we have patronized in North America....

We ate here on our first trip to Sunset Beach and it was delicious. The prices were not bad either. But don't try to get in there on a summer weekend unless you call way in advance for a reservation. The building is an old church, hence the name. Interesting story.

We visited as a group of 4 during out trip to Myrtle Beach. Reservations are highly recommended. Luckily we had done that but still waited about 8 min for our table. The menu has a good mix of entree's and maybe a little expensive but about what you would expect for fine dining. Our server was very attentive and professional.... More

Met another couple for Dinner during the weekday. Service was excellent. Appetizers were amazing. We ordered the tuna and mussels. Everyone enjoyed their dinners from the grouper special to the broiled seafood platter. The inside is very classy. The stained glass windows is like looking at art work. We will be back!

Brought my wife here for her birthday. Beautiful old converted church. The staff were excellent, the surroundings peaceful and the food top class. Slightly more expensive than other local restaurants but we'll worth it for that special occasion.
