My wife and I finally decided to go to The Library for our 49th wedding anniversary on a recommendation from a friend who told my wife that this is her favorite restaurant. Having lived in the area for over 10 years, I am embarrassed that it took us so long to get here. Everything was superb from our server, Chris... More

I would come back to Myrtle Beach because of this restaurant. Chef/Owner Shad Velasco is passionate about many things and fortunately for us one of those things is food in his restaurant. Chef Shad's recipes for Caesar Salad dressing and Chicken Chardonnay rival those I have tasted in Europe. Chef Shad is an impressive gentleman who takes the time to... More

I was looking for a place to take my wife for our anniversary while on vacation in Myrtle Beach. Of course there is always the confusion of many positive and a few amazingly negative ratings. After consideration, I settled on The Library, a french restaurant on a less attractive strip block on the main highway drag in Myrtle Beach. As... More

Perfect service and excellent food but don't be put off by the formality to wait for a special occasion. You can go just for a well prepared meal and not be too stuffy. Enjoy!

At first I thought to myself that judging from the location of the restaurant it wouldn't meet up with my expectations of a "good restaurant". It's located on the main drag in Myrtle Beach so I figured it was just another "get'em it and get'em out" places that you find in beach towns. Well to my surprise, I walked in... More

Located in the downtown area by the boardwalk, the building is on North Kings Hwy, main street in Myrtle Beach. Does not look like much from the outside, but open the door and enter an elegant restaurant. Service is supreme, and the menu is fantastic.
