“Slow, but good”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

I saw an ad for this place on our hotel website where the chef was making an awesome surf and turf with risotto. Well they didnt have it on the menu or would the make it. We ordered something else and waited a good 45 min to an hour for it to come. The place was not that busy and had a lot of empty tables at the time we were there. Our waiter didn't refill our glasses nor did he bring us more hushpuppies until we requested it later. When the food did arrive, it was terrific! Uncomparable! wonderful. I cannot say enough about the taste. It was done to perfection. However the wait put a damper on the evening. The restraunt is nothing fancy, but looks like a house with additions and porches to become a restraunt. I will go back when on vacation next year and see if the service is better.

“A Little Lacking”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

The food for us was just ok. We should have heeded the warning that we overheard a serving giving another table when she said the crab cakes that they are famous for we're not good. Not to mention that the hostess stand lacs personality and customer service. Our waiter was the bright spot of our visit he was awesome I think his name was Michael. Trust me when I say there are other places in Myrtle Beach that you can find great steak and great seafood. Not to mention with a more welcoming staff.

“Great place for lunch, must go back for dinner”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

My wife, her friend and myself stopped here for lunch recently and it was a very pleasant surprise. First off it has a great view of the ocean from the lower eating level. The specials selection was great. I had a crab meat quiche that was very good. My wife and her friend had salads that they raved about. We also enjoyed a couple glasses of wine that were good, but not great. I would recommend this place as a fairly priced restaurant to have a pleasant meal at.

“Great ambience!”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful view of ocean- the food quality varies - but it is plentiful. The salads served with entrees are quite large and delicious. Really enjoyed a beef appetizer special. The mojitos - a specialty of the house - are wonderful.

The food and service were great. We enjoyed the view of the beach from our table. Our boys got a kick out of the giant chess set in the lobby.
