Description: Review: Wayne (owner) was great. Felt right at home. Food was of "home made" quality. Portion size was a bit small (if you are going to charge a $6 split plate fee... ya better "put it on" to make a customer feel they are getting their moneys worth). Band was nice... a Jazz trio that played the whole time we were there... with most appropriate dB level that allowed for conversation. Lots of repeat customers and staff was awesome and very accommodating. Outside entrance is deceptive, but once you are inside you will feel as if transported to Little Italy, NY.

“Great choice for Mothers birthday dinnner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Went to celebrate my Mothers birthday. We got to choose the table we were most comfortable at in the small but serene atmosphere just past the South Carolina state line. Don't judge this Italian cuisine by the outside once you taste the food and see the portions you will be in awe. Our server Brennan attended to our every need and gave us just the right amount of attention. Overall a great experience will certainly come back, and soon!

“Your sure get your money's worth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Not fancy but still nice. Went on a Tuesday night and had the place to ourselves. This will not be the case when the summer mobs start arriving. Prices were reasonable and the portions were very large. Menu was very nice. We really could have split our entre and filled ourselves. We had enough left for dinner the next night. Friendly owner and staff. Will go back again. PS owners from Jersey so you know they will treat you well.

“Best kept secret!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

What a meal! From appetizer to meals to dessert...WOW!! I wish the Chicago area had as good!! AND priced right!!! If you are in the North Myrtle Beach area and don't eat here, you are missing out!! I am bringing my golf trip groups here, first choice!! We will plan the other dinners down the road.

A bit hard to locate, in a strip mall, but if anyone know great Italian...that is where you go! Exceptional food, exceptional libations, exceptional everything!!

Portions are huge!

“New Owner But Still Nice Serving Comfort Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

My wife and I have been going to Cozy-O's for years and even though there has been a recent change in ownership (another local restauranteur) the menu, food quality, and most of the staff have not changed. Portion size, contrary to what one "shared plate" reviewer indicated is not a problem-----usually to much to eat at one sitting. We have tried a lot of items on the menu and our favorites are eggplant parmigiana and grouper francaise. We have never been disappointed with either. Additionally, pricing is reasonable for the food and for the good quality house wines.The dining room is indeed cozy and reminiscent to small neighborhood restaurants in New York.

“Won't be back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

We've made it a point to visit Cozy O's every winter visit. But this year there is a new owner and, although the decor is somewhat updated and Brendon, our server, was wonderfully attentive,one of us was disappointed in the meal while the other thought it ok. Used to love the lobster ravioli here but it has been switched and was disappointing. And the price went up to $20. Go to Brentwood or Parsons Table if you want to spend that kind of money! Or, for a great meal at a reasonable price, try Pizzelle's.
