We came here for the first time some 13 to 15 years ago. My husband had been there with my brother. It was awesome then, and we had some trepidation as to how it would be today. Chef Chad loves the place, and his passion is evident in the food, wine and service! Wow, such panache and style in the... More

Nice atmosphere, good brewed beer, very generous portions on the meals.... Both my adult boys could not finish- that should say something. Great quality food and beer for the price!

My husband and I spent one night in MB and I searched the best restaurants...The Library seemed like a find. Old restaurant, positive reviews and French food in a fast food mecca.

I travel to Myrtle Beach frequently on business and The Library is my go to dining spot. The food and service are both consistently good. I have had fish, steak and pasta as main courses and have never been disappointed. I am not aware of a better dining experience in the Myrtle Beach area (andI have tried most of them).

We love this restaurant. The service is top notch. The manager is more than accommodating . The waiters, who have been ther for years, know their craft well. Most food is prepared table side, which is a delightful throw back to the 80s. Caesar salad is perfection, as is their filet mignon. Do not leave without getting a dessert! Be... More
