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 started our trip at Park Grove Resort in Asheville and then travelled to Pinehurst - neither of those world class resorts has the level of service that you will... More

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

I had compliments from everyone ranging from best meal they've ever had to best prime rib in 20 years. Our server Lisa who we requested was top notch so much so that we went back the next day and...

My wife and I come to myrtle beach often and have dined in many good establishments, but none compare to this one. To Bobby, thanks for an amazing evening. To the rest, keep up the great... More

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.
