I should probably first start by saying that while fine dining is something I enjoy, this restaurant is special. This restaurant is ULTRA-FINE dining. Fellas, it's pricier than most. So is a Bentley. My wife and I ate here on a rare "mommy-daddy" trip to Myrtle Beach. I will tell you more of our experience in a minute. Do's and... More

We were vacationing down in Mrytle Beach and a group of 5 of us decided to give this restaurant a try. What a disappoinment? The minute you walk in to the restaurant, you get this feeling that the restaurant wants to be more than what its capable of. Does that make sense? In any event the waiter was trying to... More

Our server Shane, was excellent! He knew the menu and the house specials. He was so enthusiatic about the menu items that he loved the most.

If you are looking for a real upscale restaurant in myrtle Beach look no further. Don't be fooled by it's modest exterior. Inside you will find a world class dining experience. You have got yo order the Cesar salad, it is prepared at table side! They have a full bar and a great collection of little know beers. The wait... More

My husband and I got a rare night out without the kids and decided to try something a bit different and this was AMAZING! Freshly prepared table side ceasar salad reminds you what ceasar salad is supposed to taste like! Duck L'Orange was cooked perfectly and tender and moist as well as the steak! And the Bananas Foster was AMAZING... More

Do not know what the few people who panned this place are talking about. (The bad reviews come from the obnoxious NY crowd and I don't really trust their opinion anyway) This is absolutely the finest food in Myrtle Beach. It is not cheap and parking is a little problem, but it is definitely a culinary delight. Everything prepared fresh... More

I don't get the #3 rating for this place. Service was very good, but then again, the place was fairly empty, with only 3 tables and 2 waiters. The food was okay. It is a beach area restaurant trying to be upscale and it struggles to pull it off. The prices were high relative to the average food quality. Perhaps... More

I don't always take the time to review a restaurant but when one stands a head above what you would expect then it deserves the time for the review. Our party of six was treated like royalty.

Our experience at The Library was second to none during our stay in Myrtle Beach. The restaurant is chef-owned, something I always seek out when travelling. Our waiter, Danny, was extremely professional, friendly and natural. Just the nicest server you could ask for.
