We had guests coming to town with us and we wanted them to experience the great flaming desserts with us. We only came for dessert but the owner and waiter treated us with respect and made us feel very welcomed. It is a great place to eat with a wonderful ambiance. I have eaten dinner here before and it is... More

Some would argue that dessert is the best part of the dining experience here, so we are glad to hear you all made it in with your guests to experience it! We can't thank you enough for bringing in your out of town guests to introduce them to The Library Restaurant. It is because our loyal customers like you that... More

Went for desert, the whole experience was absolutely wonderful. The service was second to none and so was the food. Thank you to the chef and our wait or for making our visit most relaxing and enjoyable.

Wanted something special for a birthday celebration. SO glad we picked the Library! Attentive wait staff, the owner helped narrow down the wine selection and our food was delicious! Oysters Rockefeller, table side prepped Caesar salad, RICH Boula Boula and the Sea Bass entree - best dinner experience of 2014!

This is a great, cozy spot; you almost expect a fireplace. It's pricey, and we don't eat chicken or meat, just seafood, so sometimes it's not worth it for us to spend a lot. But the entrees here were really fantastic. And of course our server was wonderful... Chuck made the experience so enjoyable. I had the shrimp scampi and... More

So we have tried several times to get in here and we always are told there are no reservations available. We finally called ahead and were able to secure a table last evening. Everyone was very welcoming upon arrival. We were seated promptly and approached by Chris our waiter. Bottled water was offered but I had to ask for tap-... More

This was our third time there and we were again happy we came! There is no better place for service! The owner is hands on. It's a small place, feels like home. They do table side preparations, a little retro, but fun. Don't miss the french onion soup, Caesar salad and any of their desserts! They also make their own... More

My husband and I like to explore new and exciting restaurants. Both being food lovers as well as love to cook we are very critical about our dining experiences. We only live 1 1/2 hours from Myrtle Beach and are frequent visitors. Need less to say we have not been impressed with hardly any of our restaurant choices. Our first... More

On arrival you are met at the door by the maitre'd who escorts your party to your table then goes through the wine list and gives his opinion on the best options for you. I would say the quality of the food is excellent and service likewise, everything about this restaurant is class from arrival to departure, like everything else... More

This Library has become our 'go-to' place for special occasions. The food is awesome and service impeccable. Shad, the owner, and our waiter Shane remember us by name and we get our favorite table in a quiet corner for a night of fine dining and romance.

My wife and I had our 25th wedding anniversary meal at The Library. Being off season and a Tuesday night, there were only three couples there. We sat by the fireplace and the atmosphere was fantastic. It really feels relaxing and cozy. The food was excellent. We started with Caesar salads prepared table side. I'm not much on Caesar but...
