Our food was great, the wine price was fair, but there seemed to be add-ons and our waiter did not tell us in advance there would be an extra charge.

Had the pleasure of dining at the library this past week and what an immense pleasure it was. It was a special occasion so very important to select the right restaurant, I needn't have worried about the library as it surpassed my expectations by a country mile. This is not a cheap dining experience in fact it is expensive so... More

Small restaurant with unexceptional exterior/interior. We dined on a Friday night (off season and rainy), the place was almost empty but they still emailed and called me to check if we were going to honor our reservation. We passed on the expensive wine list but ordered two of the featured martinis which were excellent. The table side Caesar salad was... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant! It saddens me to read another review that got the impression that we are constantly trying to increase a table’s final tab throughout the experience here. We are a fine dining restaurant focused on providing guests with a relaxed, non-rushed evening of a fully coursed out meal. Although we are... More

We were very disappointed by this restaurant that claims longevity and many outstanding reviews. We have traveled the world for many years dining at endless 5-Star restaurants. Either people don't know what a great restaurant is or they simply are impressed by the restaurant's so-called efforts to be such an establishment. Location is central Myrtle Beach right on Main Street... More

My wife and I had the opportunity to eat at The Library during a recent visit to MB. The Library is a small establishment that doesn't look like much from the outside. Once inside it is a service focused establishment with some of the best food either of us have eaten in recent memory. They still do Caesar Salad table... More

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
