We tried this place so you don’t have to. We were so excited to try this place after seeing the reviews and photos. While it was clean and the staff was friendly, the food was disappointing. Nothing was truly exotic on the experience for two....We were not impressed with the French fries and burger patty’s on a $77 platter. Food was bland. The 18% gratuity was unnecessary as we usually leave 20% or more. Would not recommendMore

When you enter the restaurant, you feel transported to another region of the world. The food was delicious. We really enjoyed our visit. We visited when pandemic restrictions were in place, and all restaurants were short-staffed. Things seemed slow during our visit because the restaurant...was understaffed. When the dancer is at the restaurant, I recommend a reservation.More

We came here on a weekday at lunchtime and really enjoyed this restaurant. Our server was Rich and she was sweet and MORE than patient with our multitude of questions. My friend and I got the white meat chicken skewers and my husband got the...lamb shank- we all ordered with rice and beans. We also got an order of hummus for the table. All was delicious and nothing disappointed. My friend and I deployed together to the Middle East a few years ago and while the hummus was not quite as delicious as what we had there, it was still very good. The entrees did not disappoint and were pretty close to the meals we had eaten over there... maybe just slightly fewer spices, but this place still holds its own. We also loved the interior; it brought back a lot of memories for us. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back here and when we do, we’ll ask for Rich!More

We arrived in Myrtle Beach in the late afternoon, and we were starving. One of the challenges we have with beach restaurants is that my wife is vegetarian (and won't each fish) and I need animal protein. We end up eating a lot of Italian....Jerusalem Mediterranean was a great find for us. We started off with the Mediterranean Sampler, which was a tasty trio of hummus, tahini and Bubba Ganoush. My favorite was the Bubba Ganoush, which had a complex flavor. The Tandoori pita bread was warm and soft and a perfect compliment to dip into the trio. For dinner I had the lamb shank, which simply fell of the bone. It was served in a bowl, with a delicious sauce, slightly sweet, with onions and carrots. The carrots were so sweet, I swear they were sweet potatoes. (Hmmm....maybe they were!). My wife ordered hummus, falafel, and couscous. Both dinners were outstanding, flavorful and filling. It was great to find a beach restaurant where both of us could get outstanding, flavorful dinners. We will certainly return, and highly recommend.More

We ate here on a Sunday, March 28, 2021. We arrived right at noon which is when they open. We were greeted and sat immediately. The inside is beautifully decorated and very clean. Gorgeous actually. The service was impeccable. There were four of us and...we ordered the Jerusalem sampler platter and a Greek salad. The sampler platter was AMAZING! The Greek salad although fresh and good was just the eh part of the meal. Next time we all said we would order more chicken every bit of the shawarma and baby chicken was phenomenal. If you have not been here, go. It is well worth it. Thank you Jerusalem for the perfect meal and service!More

Restaurant charged an 18% service charge for two people without my prior knowledge or consent to the bill in addition to the sales tax. Waitress said this is because she provided a service and needs money. She reported that some customers didn’t tip. Maybe I’m...old fashioned, but I thought tips were a reward for good service in the amount decided by the customer. Place is expensive before the forced tip. Be preparedMore

We stopped in here for our wedding anniversary lunch date and it is a beautiful restaurant; however, we never received our food. The waiter came back twice to our table saying there was some sort of “mixup” in the kitchen meanwhile two other groups came...in; ordered and received their food. Thank goodness we only ordered waters because after 45 minutes of waiting we decided to leave the restaurant and go somewhere else to celebrate our special day. Sadly, our experience here was an epic fail!More

Excellent service, called to confirm they had the correct order. Portions were a little smaller than expected, which probably means they're an appropriate size. The Mediterranean platter was lovely, especially the fresh bread, hummus and baba ghanoush.
