Very good place for a fine dining evening, the wine list was good and our waiter listened to our wine preferences and suggested a super bottle of red. Top notch entrees done right, great presentation and good staff added up to very enjoyable evening. Worth your time and money.

We visit The Library every year to celebrate my husband's birthday. Exceptional, fine dining with many dishes prepared table side. Truly a dining experience in old world style. Daniel is an exceptional waiter. The owner, Shad, takes great pride in his restaurant as is evidenced with his attentiveness to every table. Small, romantic restaurant worth every penny ! Thanks Shad... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Thanks to your reviews, we gave it a try. It was so good that we purchased a gift card and invited my parents to come the next night. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The owner/chef greeted us when we sat down. The server knew the menu well and we... More

This was a lovely fine dining experience. From making the reservations to exiting the restaurant after the meal, it was first class. The staff was exceptional and very professional. The atmosphere was calming and elegant. The food was delectable. For business or intimate dining this venue is perfect.

My wife and I finally decided to go to The Library for our 49th wedding anniversary on a recommendation from a friend who told my wife that this is her favorite restaurant. Having lived in the area for over 10 years, I am embarrassed that it took us so long to get here. Everything was superb from our server, Chris... More

I would come back to Myrtle Beach because of this restaurant. Chef/Owner Shad Velasco is passionate about many things and fortunately for us one of those things is food in his restaurant. Chef Shad's recipes for Caesar Salad dressing and Chicken Chardonnay rival those I have tasted in Europe. Chef Shad is an impressive gentleman who takes the time to... More
