Special night out!

We had a marvelous time and meal! My wife started out with a martini that featured cranberry juice, while I started a very nice bottle of cab sav, recommended by Chris, our server.

You will find The Library right in the unassuming heart of Myrtle Beach. This was our first experience at The Library thanks to a very generous gift certificate from our kids. We were not expecting such a fine dining experience. The staff are professionals and the service was impeccable--very attentive and accommodating. The hostess took time with us discussing the...

We have eaten at the Library restaurant several times and the service is impeccable and the food delicious. We always enjoy the table side Caesar salad and their take on she-crab soup was great. Just a nice romantic place to sit back and enjoy your company...

The service was unusually inattentive but the server seemed very inexperienced. The oysters Rockefeller were awesome. We had specials which were very good, but the extra charge for the vegetables weren't worth it. If you like al dente beans and carrots it is fine. The owner, Shadrack, was outstanding in helping us with the wine list and when we left,... More

Good food, Good service, Good atmosphere. A bit pricey for everyday dining, but a good place for special occasions when the price doesn't matter.

Went to the Library after dinner for a glass of wine with my boyfriend. He had no idea that I was holding an engagement ring in my pocket and was freaking out thinking about the proposal. Jennifer was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the wine library, offering her opinions when I was debating between bottles. The wine was delicious, the... More
