Great service, great atmosphere, and great food! A wonderful place to celebrate special occasions or to just enjoy a nice evening. They focus on making you feel very special without doting on you. Appetizers, salad, entrees, and dessert were outstanding. Filets are served without a steak knife as they are so tender that you can cut them with a butter... More

the best filet I ever had in Myrtle beach (surf and turf) - my wife's veal and shrimp was great - the cherry's jubilee was a great finish - one thing I did not like, when the entrée was served they bought out extra vegetables (They were great) but they were an add on charge on the bill for them...

My girlfriend and I arrive there around 8pm and there's only one table of two eating. The hostess said to us give a few minutes while we get you A table.

I will start by saying...you MUST eat here. Small background; we have been going to Myrtle Beach for over 40 years. When I was a little girl, my parents would always go to The Library without me. Over the years as Myrtle Beach grew, they tried different restaurants and simply forgot about this fabulous place. Shame on them. We always... More

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.

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

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.

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!

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
