Never judge a book by its cover

At first I thought to myself that judging from the location of the restaurant it wouldn't meet up with my expectations of a "good restaurant". It's located on the main drag in Myrtle Beach so I figured it was just another "get'em it and get'em out" places that you find in beach towns. Well to my... read more

Located in the downtown area by the boardwalk, the building is on North Kings Hwy, main street in Myrtle Beach. Does not look like much from the outside, but open the door and enter an elegant restaurant. Service is supreme, and the menu is fantastic. The chef and owner personally checks on your meal and makes sure it is how... More

We went back to The Library in Myrtle Beach to celebrate their anniversary with our daughter and her husband. This is a place we go to for special occasions, and it has not disappointed. Bobby, our waiter, has to be one of the best in the business. The food matched. We had Steak Diane that was prepared in a classical... More

The Library is a real find in Myrtle Beach. Don't be put off by the empty block where it's located or the nondescript outside. It doesn't look like an elegant restaurant! But it is... Attentive staff are always there when you need them; the food is scrumptious. AND the prices are very reasonable. Corkage is $15, so we brought our... More

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.

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!
