“Great entertainment & atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Hubby & I visited bar for happy hour. Enjoyed entertainment as it was very relaxing. Ordered crab cake appetizer & lobster crepes appetizer which were excellent. Had lava cake for dessert & went back again following night for lava cake again. Bartender was very good and attentive.

“Beware - Very Inconsistent!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our 2nd visit within the month was a huge disappointment! Although we didn't care for the fact that they add 20% gratuity to your bill for only 4 people, we had such great service and food on our first visit that we didn't mind. Last night, however, it was horrible. We had reservations and requested a booth. There were two empty and we were told they were taken - when we left after 1 1/2 hours, they were still empty! My husband ordered the Veal Francaise, which he ordered the first time off the regular menu and again last night. This time, it was coated in seasoned flour and there was no sauce. When he asked our waiter about it, he said only the Veal Piccata came with sauce - which is not what the description on their menu said. According to the menu, it should have been cooked and topped with a lemon, sherry and butter sauce. When my husband complained it was dry, he did go to the kitchen and ask for a sauce. We should have asked to speak to the manager, who by the way, was not in sight. My dinner was dry and unimaginative oven roasted Mahi Mahi. I expected higher quality or a larger portion for $25.00!! They had a 3 for $20. special going on the whole month, as with our first visit, we had to request the menus. Our service was terrible and not worth 10 % let alone 20% last night. Due to having guests, we were reluctant to make a scene. However, for the prices they charge for their skimpy portions, it is so not worth it! It is a roll of the dice, go if you like to gamble.

“Good place to go for special occasions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

I found Martinis a place where I would go for special occasions or if my friends wanted a place to meet at the piano bar.
The food is good and the staff is efficient

“great steak house on the north end of Myrtle Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Very nice upscale restaurant. The "Rack of Lamb " was very tasty and cooked perfectly/ The mint jelly could have more body but was still good. The Chateaubriand was served with broccoli or asparagus and very good mashed potatoes. The drinks were well poured and the list of martinis is great. Service was excellent. Prices are what you would expect .We did not have reservations so a short wait in the bar was spent talking to the bartender about some of the martinis . I think you will like Martinis . I know I'll be going back

“Disappointed!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Several couples made reservations to eat at Martini's New Year's Eve 2012. We arrived a few minutes early but our table wasn't ready. Went to the lounge to have a drink while waiting...unfortunately, the bar charge could not be added to our dinner tab, so we settled up and were seated within 10 minutes. My friends were happy with their entrees, prime rib or rib eye but the Grouper Newberg was not very good. It was mostly puff pastry and a very salty sauce...a small piece of grouper, a couple of scallops and shrimp covered in the salty sauce :( service was ok; however, we were asked to vacate our table for the third seating!! So disappointing; this is a restaurant my friends like a lot...maybe it deserves another try on a non-holiday evening...
