It sounds as though you may have dined at Liberty Steakhouse at Broadway at the Beach. We appreciate your visit to the Grand Strand and hope that perhaps on your next visit you will dine with us at The Library! Kindest Regards, Jennifer Manager The Library Restaurant More

I went to this restaurant with a friend as a special celebration and could not have been more disappointed in the lackluster food considering the very expensive prices. The mushroom appetizer was delicious but beyond that---mediocre if not poor. The Caesar salad is prepared with lots of pomp but the taste was average. The shrimp scampi was awful. Not like... More

My husband and I went to the Library Restaurant for our wedding anniversary celebration. We had heard and read good things. We haven't enjoyed a Caesar salad prepared table side in a long time. This salad was good, but not as wonderful as the one we enjoyed at another restaurant. My husband ordered the salmon special, and he enjoyed it.... More

Very good place for a fine dining evening, the wine list was good and our waiter listened to our wine preferences and suggested a super bottle of red. Top notch entrees done right, great presentation and good staff added up to very enjoyable evening. Worth your time and money.
