“Very good food”
Reviewed May 11, 2008

This is not your typical Myrtle Beach restaurant. It is located in a small strip mall on Business 17. It was recommended to us from some golfers that we met at another restaurant. The food was excellent, service was great and wine selections were good. Not an extensive menu but good and varied selections for anyone. The Chef out did himself the night we were there.

“Overrated!”
Reviewed July 2, 2007

My wife and I returned to Collectors after 5 years and were happy to see that it remained under the same ownership and the ambience had not changed.

The service however was poor - by both our server, management, and the chef. First, our entrees were served while were still enjoying our salads. Worst of all, when I found a inspection sticker affixed to one of the bell peppers in my entree, the chef did not apologize and the server offered no compensation other than to say "oops!" I expected the manager to come to the table or the chef to come out and apologize for the oversight. The restaurant was not busy because we were dining late, but nothing was said or done.

The food overall was average and much too expensive for what was offered.

We will not be going back.

“Amidst the malls and fast food...”
Reviewed August 19, 2006

We went to Collector's Cafe on two consecutive nights in August 2006. The seating is a bit crowded, but acceptable. With our reservations, we were seated promptly, even when we added a person at the last minute on a full Saturday night. The wine list is good, the prices quite fair, although they could use a few more good whites given the seafood emphasis. The food is superb. Our group had 3 different appetizers and 5 entrees - all were excellent -creative and well made. A scallop and shrimp ceviche was particularly good. Desserts were also excellent - one of the best creme brulees I've had, and the blueberry-peach cobbler was also very good. Highly recommended, esp. in comparison to the all-you-can-eat places that predominate in M.B. The only negative was a waiter the first night who rushed us, despite an 8:00 reservation, as if he was desperate to turn the table. The waiter the second night was much better, despite an earlier seating. We were never rushed despite a full house, and enjoyed a leisurely meal with good company. Highly recommended.

“Way too expensive”
Reviewed July 21, 2006

We went in because of the reviews and I'm sure the food is great. The atomosphere is great. However, we weren't willng to spend over $30 an entree.
