Our experience at The Library was second to none during our stay in Myrtle Beach. The restaurant is chef-owned, something I always seek out when travelling. Our waiter, Danny, was extremely professional, friendly and natural. Just the nicest server you could ask for. The interior has a romantic ambience and you are not rushed in and out of the restaurant.... More

Danny the waiter (39 years there) provided 5 star service and was fantastic! Chad the owner seated us and made us feel very welcome. The table side Cesar Salad is worth a visit by itself, but we couldn't resist the menu, so I enjoyed a filet and lobster tail while my wife had a great salmon dish, one of the... More

Thank you kindly for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed everything. The tableside caesar salad is one of our signature items here and it's hard to go back to dressing in a bottle after watching the servers prepare it with such care right there at your table! We look forward to your next visit, thanks again... More

Enjoyed dinner here the week of July 4th. I will say that in many years of dining experiences the service here was some of the best I have had. Every detail from the table settings to the delivery of a chilled fork to enjoy the ceasar salad ( made table side ) was perfect. We enjoyed blueberry martinis to begin... More

We celebrated my mother's birthday here and were impressed by the service, ambiance and food. We both had the filet and lobster and everything was flavorful and cooked to perfection.

Fantastic service and excellent food. We had filet, salmon, veal, lobster, she crab soup, potato soup(a must) and salads. All of the food was cooked to perfection! The filet mignon melted in your mouth! The carrots, green beans, and potatoes were fabulous. The salads were cold crisp with delicious dressings served with a chilled fork.

This is the best-kept secret in Myrtle Beach! Shad the owner /chef has created a beautiful menu along with nightly features.
