We optioned for standard fare. I had the New York strip with house mashed potatoes and a house salid. My wife had crab cakes with the same sides. Everything was prepared well. Service was good. Things just seemed to be overpriced. I would be wary of bringing a family here. At these prices I would call this restaurant average leaning... More

A group of 7 of us went for dinner, Chuck was our server and we had a great time! The food was yummy and the service was excellent. The bacon wrapped scallops were delightful. Everyone of us has worked as a server so we are very particular about our service and chuck exceeded every expectation of what a server should... More

Cozy and reminiscent of an old restaurant you would find in horse country. This restaurant is huge and doesn't meet the expectations that it pretends to deliver. We were surprised on a Saturday night in July that it would literally be empty at 7:30 at night. A single thought crossed my mind when they took us literally to the far... More

I have not been to this restaurant in 15 years. I loved it the first time bit it is even better today. First, the service is the best in NC.

We are from Charlotte, NC and were vacationing in Myrtle Beach, and found this restaurant online. It was wonderful!! Great ambience, very impressive wine list (we had a bottle of pinot noir they had on special and it was reasonably priced and remarkable). We had the bacon-wrapped scallops for an appetizer, ribeye and filet and shrimp special for entree, and... More

jenmarie24, Thank you for writing such an uplifting review of our restaurant. In today's day and age, it seems like everyone is a food critic. More often than not, the negative aspects of a restaurant are brought to light, while the positives side of things are left unsaid. I truly appreciate the kind and informative review.

We've eaten here several times over the past few years, and it's always excellent. Service is really top notch and the steaks are INCREDIBLE. Impressive wine, beer, and mixed drink options and a romantic atmosphere are all here as well. This place stands out in a very crowded Myrtle Beach food market and is not to be missed.
