Review №1

Living here at the beach for 30 years, knowing about Aspen Grille, I dont know why it took me so long to try. I am a huge fan of their sister restaurant, Bistro 90, which is one of the best restaurants in the area, hands down!!! The owner Roland and his crew do such a fantastic job making you feel welcomed from the moment you walk in. The atmosphere is very nice, cozy quiet but beautiful restaurant. I cant ask for better service and I cannot find the words to describe the food. Both locations have wonderful cheifs that just spoil me every visit. It actually ruins it for me when I go other places. Aspen Grille comes highly recommended!!!

We were visiting Myrtle Beach for our anniversary. It had been many years since we were in the area so we didn't no where to go for our anniversary night dinner. We happened upon Aspen Grille in an online search and we really lucked out! We arrived a little early but our table was already set up and there was even an anniversary card on the table from the staff! The food was great! The server, Alan, was the perfect balance of attentive and engaging without being overbearing. He heard that we were from out of town and looking for other great places to eat, wrote down a list and spoke to us about them. They were great too!

Amazing experience from start to finish! Compliments to Chef Jon and the amazing staff!!

Review №4

This place is all around an absolute 10/10! From the hostess Sophia, to our awesome bartender Rocco, and the head chef Fin who came out to talk with us, everyone treated us with such kindness. Not to mention the food was AMAZING. I wish I took more pictures but it was just too good. Started out with the pork belly & shrimp appetizer as well as the cashew chicken lettuce wraps, both to die for! For dinner we had the stuffed flounder with mushroom truffle risotto, and for dessert a homemade coconut cake. I cannot rave enough about this meal!! You'd truly be doing yourself a disservice by not going.

Review №5

It had been a couple of years since our last visit and we were disappointed then. It has since changed owners and it was so much better. I had a 6oz filet with a 8 oz lobster tail. Both were excellent. Wife had the flounder stuffed with crab meat. Also was excellent. I would reccomend that you try this place out.

Review №6

I ordered their French Onion soup to go. It is the worst soup I have ever eaten. There is so much oil in it. The bread is hard to bite through and almost stale. I had to cut it with a knife. The cheese was so chewy. No salt. No real flavor at all honestly. And the onions were complete mush. Would not recommend.

Review №7

Best food I have had in a long time! The service was also amazing. I will always come back to eat at Aspen Grille.

Review №8

Absolutely amazing. I was impressed from the moment I walked through the door. The environment is extremely classy and romantic with a candle lit at each table and beautiful lighting, tables, chairs, and very professional and friendly staff that are efficient at getting you what you need.The food was incredible. Some of the most delicious and beautifully decorated dishes with the most exquisite menu that you won't find anywhere else in Myrtle Beach.By far the best restaurant around if you're looking for fine dining.

Review №9

The atmosphere was relaxed and somewhat romantic. A nice fine dining experience. I really enjoyed the tempura lobster bites! Food and desserts were all fresh and cooked well. Money well spent!

Review №10

I've been lucky enough to have eaten at this superb restaurant several times since my first visit to Myrtle Beach in 2008. Every single time the meal and service has been some of the best I have had anywhere. Cannot fault it in any way. Well priced considering the amazing quality.Cannot wait time come back again. The bartenders are the best in MB.

Review №11

Very well decorated place. Promising with excellent service from Mark. Warm bread with butter and 4 types of salt. The hickory smoked one was great. The fresh oysters were rather small but the sauce was excellent. Finished the remaining sauce with bread. The fried green tomatoes were excellent. Topped with scallop meat. My scallops with mushroom risotto was very tasty even though the scallops were medium size - not jumbo. Lots of risotto. My son ordered the chicken breast and enjoyed it thoroughly. My wife was torn between the grouper and flounder with shrimp. Unfortunately, the flounder was stale but the sauce and shrimp was very good. Then my son ordered the 10 layer chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Quite good from my tasting. All in all a pretty good dinner but given the prices, small size of scallops and stale flounder (which we should have sent back), 3 stars it is. The live tenor sax and local artist paintings on the wall helped the ambiance. Falls short of fine dining competition.

Review №12

We are in the business of recommending restaurants to our high end clientele and will always highly recommend Aspen Grill and any restaurant Roland is a part of. Last night we had the pleasure of being served by Rosanne and her staff. From the start of our entry this restaurant was doing everything it should be in these crazy times; Social Distancing Tables, Staff wearing Masks, Restaurant was immaculately clean. The food was on point; entrees, sides, and desserts and the service made us feel like we were in a high end Restaurant in a Big City. Good Job Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for taking care of our party. We will be back!

Review №13

The food is top notch, love the light atmosphere. Plenty of spacing between tables for quiet chats.Beyond amazing

Review №14

We had a pleasant experience at Aspen Grille overall. It featured good food, elevated pricing, and a quiet atmosphere. My wife had the shrimp and grits while I had the Scallops. Both dishes were good but not the most amazing we had ever eaten. The location accepts reservations and while we were told that they were packed and couldn't accommodate an earlier reservation, we arrived to a relatively calm crowd with apparently little wait.Conclusion: Aspen offers a solid meal at a price.

Review №15

Our waiter Aaron was absolutely amazing!!!!! They were very accommodating for a last minute reservation. We were celebrating a birthday and they made sure we had a great experience! Thanks again Aaron!

Review №16

While I don't typically write reviews I felt inclined to share my experience this time. I'm am accustom to fine ding and spending $100 per person for an excellent meal and experience. My complaint about this restaurant is it's food. The food was sub par for the money charged. The filet was nothing better than what I could have prepared in a skillet at my home and the lobster was over cooked . The 3 people in my party felt the same way about their meals. Bottom line is the food is nothing special at all. Save your money and try somewhere else

Review №17

Let me start off by saying that the waiters are the best. Great conversation and customer service. I started with the Seared Tuna (Asian slaw, wasabi cream, soy sauce) and I devoured it. I finished with the Steak Tip Risotto and the level of savory was off the charts. Came in wearing beach wear but they encouraged us to have a seat and enjoy. If I am ever back in myrtle beach I will be here.

Review №18

I went before COVID and had the best bartender. His name was Allen. Returned a couple of days ago and it was a totally different staff. I did ask if Allen was there. They told me no. I also asked if there was a happy hour. Was told there wasn't and the person rolled their eyes. AWFUL SERVICE! I asked to speak to a manager and was told they were too busy.

Review №19

Mark was an excellent server. All food and bev was top notch. Treat yo self.

Review №20

Great place for a nice dinner. Great selection on the menu and very well done with the right sides and sauces. Atmosphere is cozy and the staff are super knowledgeable and friendly. Prices are high but to be expected for the service and quality of food and presentation. The desert options are top notch.

Review №21

Nice ambiance and customer service!! Food was great also.

Review №22

Incredible restaurant. Fresh ingredients and top notch service at the bar with Skully and KimBo.. One of my favorite local establishment. Owner Roland is truly concerned about your dining experience....Treat yourself to an unforgettable experience...You won't regret it

Review №23

Absolutely a must visit! Classier restaurant then most in Myrtle Beach, with outstanding food. Great Chef selections, and full bar. Our waiter was Will. He was extremely polite, and very knowledgeable of the menu. Four in our party, and every meal on point. We will be back here on our next trip down.

Review №24

Stuffed pork chop was fantastic and my girls scallop risotto was perfect. Definitely going back.

Review №25

Excellent food and wonderful service! We came to celebrate our anniversary, and we were surprised to find an anniversary card at our table. We also received complementary champagne. We highly recommend!

Review №26

This was our first time dining here, but next time in the area, we will definitely be back! Mark is a fantastic server -- we never felt pressure to order or moved along. Scully is a top-notch bartender. Wine menu is well executed. Definitely recommend the pork belly and shrimp appetizer. So much we wanted to try on the menu, but I selected the filet with lobster tail, and wasn't disappointed. Silky cut of meat, cooked perfectly (rare!) My wife got the ribeye with the garlic shrimp, and she loved it.

Review №27

Amazing from start to finish! Roland is a pro at nurturing his restaurants and his staff to perfection! My ribeye was cooked to the perfect temp and tasted great! Our waiter, mark was very knowledgeable, and funny! Dessert was awesome as well. Definetly will be returning!

Review №28

Excelente place, nice decoration, food looks and taste good. Saturdays They have life music. Good prices, not too expensive

Review №29

Seven years of coming to the Aspen Grille and it's always excellent. The service cannot be beat; absolutely impeccable.

Review №30

Great food great service to Bart was an excellent waiter

Review №31

This is a very nice place to go out on a date night. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the drinks and the atmosphere. I would recommend coming here if you are looking for an upscale restaurant. It is a very cozy place and a local recommendation.

Review №32

Great restaurant good cocktails and wine list. The food menu is outstanding but not a cheap restaurant.

Review №33

High end dining, fantastic service, great food and drinks. The restaurant is a hidden gem.

Review №34

Great food great service wonderful ambiance! This is a wonderful place to feel good about yourself and your surroundings. It's not inexpensive, but it's a great place to indulge once in a while.

Review №35

Fab good and drinks menu..the bar man was very friendly and the waiting staff were top class

Review №36

At the beach with family and having eaten there in the past, we went again. The old bartender was not there that night and apparently we found out that he was the backbone of this place cause the service sucks now. And they don't even have a happy hour. Never going back!

Review №37

The filet mignon was so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. Mark my server was very precise and elegant when serving me. Food is worth the cost.

Review №38

Loved this place very good food and service

Review №39

Absolutely delicious! Scallops for the appetizer were amazing. I ordered clam chowder & the field green salad topped with steak tips. The chowder was one of the best I've had. The steak tips would melt in your mouth. Creme brulee for dessert & it was superb! Excellent service as well.

Review №40

We left after the bartender blew his nose 3 times without washing his hands. We wanted to eat dinner there so it was very disappointing.

Review №41

Top notch! If you are in Myrtle Beach you must try this restaurant!

Review №42

Awesome Steakhouse! Perfection lives in Myrtle Beach when it comes to a well prepared USDA prime steak. Excellent service and a decent drink menu, good for a special occasion or to fill that special craving.

Review №43

Great place great experience

Review №44

Service was excellent. Food (steak s) was delicious. The greenbeans/onions/bacon along with fries would be highly recommended. Has the feeling and taste of Bistro 90 which Roland has brought into it's sister restaurant.

Review №45

Aron was simply amazing and food was perfect.

Review №46

The Aspen Grille is a restaurant which has aspirations of being a classy eatery. The food was of very good quality, but wasn't anything to write home about. The shrimp cocktail was something I could do for about three bucks and they charge sixteen dollars for it. The peach stuffed chicken was very dry which meant ,to me, that it had been cooked earlier in the day and put in a warmer where it continued to cook and dry out. This wasn't my idea of fine dining.

Review №47

OMG! What a surprize. Thank you I will be back soon

Review №48

Excellent FOOD and very good service. Mark did an awesome job helping us and being great with our kids. They also had my fav wine.

Review №49

Staff and food are very good

Review №50

Excellent Food & Service with a great atmosphere. One of our favorite restaurants. Highly Recommend!

Review №51

The specials were out of this world. Great service, honestly one of the best meals I've ever had. Get the yellowfin for an app and the blueberry bread pudding for desert.

Review №52

My Friend and I were there last Evening for Dinner. As soon as we sat down we were questioned whether we wanted anything. My thought was, hell let us get at chance to look at the Menu (Food and Drinks) first. Our waiter has NO Personality, no outside conversation at all, as some Waitresses/Waiters sometimes do, especially since Myrtle Beach is A Tourist City. I will say that the food was good. There were Political Conversations talked about where I felt wasn't the time or place and loud enough for all to hear especially us “Yes..We Are African Americans” The Hostess saw us leaving and didn't bother to Acknowledge or Thank Us for Dining there or if everything was Ok. I didn't like the treatment nor will I ever go or recommend Aspen Grille I felt a little unwelcome. Hire people who will make ALL your Customers feel welcome And what's with the Black and White Napkins? Is it for whatever Race is seated we were left with Black Napkins unless it's a custom I'm not familiar with.

Review №53

Very disappointed with the steak we ordered. Tastes as if it had been frozen. The scallops were fantastic though.We had a better experience on our first visit but since it seems quality, not price,has gone down I doubt we will return.

Review №54

Excellent food and top notch service. $$$+ but well worth it. Escargot, pan fried flounder and bone in ribeye. Yum!

Review №55

Had a nice evening the first night in town at this establishment. For starters they served some excellent soft shell crab and lightly fried oysters. Would definitely recommend the soft shell crab if it is available; it is a special currently so get it while you can! For entree we had the chef special mahi mahi and the catch of the day (grouper) substituting the rice for the mushroom risotto. The mahi mahi was fairly underwhelming but the grouper was an excellent selection. For dessert we shared the carrot cake cheesecake but there were so many more options that we may have to come back just for dessert before we leave! Unfortunately the food looked so good I started eating and forgot to take pictures first!

Review №56

Good food, atmosphere and service. Prices way too steep since new ownership. Portions not the greatest.

Review №57

This place is very good. From the extensive wine menus, to steaks and seafood. The lobster Aspen is a must try!

Review №58

Food was delicious! Went during happy hour and sat at the bar...prices are great, attention to details is spot on & service is excellent!

Review №59

The food here is quality. If you want a $20 sirloin don't come to this restaurant. If you want a perfectly cooked and flavoured $35-50 steak... What are you waiting on? Go tonight.

Review №60

Our hotel provided a list of restaurants in the area and we are so glad we chose the Aspen Grill. We were warmly greeted by the hostess and our server, Mark. He made several menu suggestions and was attentive. Our meals (shrimp and grits, goat cheese salad, oyster appetizer), were prepared perfectly. We topped it off with an in-house made key lime pie. Wonderful atmosphere!

Review №61

Food was good but service was slow. Tired of waiting. It took away from an otherwise enjoyable evening.

Review №62

Although in a strip center, once you walk in the doors, the setting is warm and intimate. Friendly service and high quality food at a fair price point. Whether at a table or dining at the bar, you are well accommodated. Quality steak house with diverse selection of fish, chicken and other. Good wine options and great bar.

Review №63

This was a birthday celebration. I chose this restaurant based on the reviews. Big mistake. This is cafeteria food at best. If something reads sauteed you can assume this is coming out of a steam table. Food is unappealing and is only missing a tray with separate compartments.I ordered the Pork Belly and shrimp appetizer. Shrimp was not deveined. Pork belly was overcooked and crunchy. My girlfriend ordered the caesar salad. This was nothing more than chopped romaine, jarred dressing and boxed croutons. I was so concerned about my initial order of "Braised Short Ribs" that I changed it to a filet with a side of "U10 Seared Scallops". The waiter happily obliged. The Steak was cooked well, but was not prime. U10 means 10 scallops per pound. These were at best U25/30. The saute green beans came out of a steam pan, and mashed potatoes were a flat, overcooked blob on the plate. My girlfriend ordered the chicken cordon bleu. A flat dismal piece of chicken with a horrendous white wine sauce. Took two bites and was done. Asked for side of saute mushrooms which also obviously came for the same steam pan, or perhaps directly from the can? We have visited the sister restaurant Bistro 90 and were extremely impressed. This is not the same quality at all. Ended up leaving before finishing our meals and went to Pine Lakes Tavern and had far superior food. Not sure if the owner is looking for a tax write off, but this is certainly not on par with Bistro 90.I will say the service was very good, no shame with regards.

Review №64

In town from Chicago and we didn't have a reservation, but sat down right away in the bar and ordered from the full dinner menu.Food was absolutely fantastic. High end seafood and the blueberry bread pudding dessert was to die for! Several levels above anything else in Myrtle Beach - nice to know that not everything is Calabash!

Review №65

This was the best restaurant I had ever been. I ordered the French Onion soup and Filet Mignon with Cheese Grits. The soup was amazing, meat was cooked to perfection and had the best taste. I am very picky when it comes to grits but these ones were a creamy consistency and not gritty at all. The waiter was very friendly and the service overall was 10/10. I highly recommend to come and eat here.

Review №66

Great service. Just had dessert and a drink. The dessert was delicious. Looking forward to going for dinner soon.

Review №67

The atmosphere was great .as were the staff the food however was disappointing at best especially for the price.

Review №68

I'm from Michigan and moved to Myrtle Beach 2016. I went there and my 2nd visit was memorable because I personally met Scully and Allen. They are great bartenders. All of my Michigan guests I take to Aspen Grille. Being from Detroit we love our music and Wayne fills that void what an artist. My Michigan guest loved him and the food and the guys.

Review №69

FantasticAny occasion i'm sure would have been just as perfect but i took my girlfriend here for her birthday and my expectation was woefully exceeded! The food, excellent to say the least. not the best ive ever personally had but definitely something to write home about! 9/10The service, the best part! Our waiter not only did a fine job recommending wine to dinner, extremely kind man that deserved every bit of his tip! Hand written birthday card from the staff almost made my girlfriend cry. 10/10Atmosphere is wonderful. felt relaxed, nice music, friendly guests. A real gem of a restaurant 10/10Conclusion highly recommend!

Review №70

In most places when you see a restaurant in a strip mall you'd maybe think twice, not here. The food and service at the Aspen Grill were both on point. The meal pictured is NY strip with the Aspen topping, highly recommended. Pair that with some of the craft cocktails or a glass of wine from the wine list and you won't go away disappointed.

Review №71

All around great experience.Good music, food, and service.10 out of 10 recommend for a date night or just a quiet dinner with friends!

Review №72

Absolutely delicious meal. Mark was a fantastic server, couldn't have asked for a better night!!

Review №73

Very nice. Went for a birthday party. Our server, i apologize but can not recall his name , was excellent.

Review №74

Rack of Lamb, was ordered to be cooked to medium. Rack came out raw and I eat most meat medium rare and this was absurd.Sent it back and blew my mind, they microwaved it. Yes microwaved the most expensive entree on the menu.I'm not paying 50 dollars for something to be microwaved. What a shame.FYI the Mahi Mahi, ordered by 4 people at our table tasted nothing like Mahi. It was tilapia guarenteed.

Review №75

A rare high-end eatery for a beach town, with live jazz sometimes. The steaks and seafood we had, along with the lamb, were well prepared and tasty. It's in a strip mall, but that's okay......its Myrtle Beach! Plan on spending $80 to $100 pp if you do wine.

Review №76

Being a foodie, I never let go of good food serving places. How could I let this one go? This is an amazing place that lets you enjoy the best food along with the highest comfort level.

Review №77

OMFG. You HAVE to eat here. The service is A+ (thanks David). The food is A+. The drinks are A+. The value is fantastic. Plus! The artwork is also for sale! I can strongly recommend the lamb, mushroom risotto, fried lobster bites, and scratch made creamy tomato basil.

Review №78

Excellent food and people. We had a reservation for 12 and turned into 6. They were happy to see even though they had a 50% reduction in the opportunity.Great place

Review №79

A little pricey but always great food and atmosphere.

Review №80

Awesome food. Great Filet!! The blueberry bread pudding is incredible. Best place we found to eat in a week at Myrtle Beach.

Review №81

New owners. Wine on the list is not accurate, waiter tried to BS me. Ha! He told us the fish of the day was Mahi. The waiter at the next table said it was Grouper. ? When I asked our waiter, he said, they HAD to sell out of the Mahi first and was not allowed to offer Grouper. Seriously! The rice served with Mahi was terrible, bland, overcooked, with frozen vegetables in it for ,$36.00.New owners are not doing a good job. We have been going to Aspen Grill for 6 years, dont think we will be going back. For $229 for 2 people, they better do something to improve the food. Service was great, food sucked.

Review №82

Outstanding experience and service. A food cuisine that's delivers a great taste and A+ personality

Review №83

Great happy hour on wine down Wednesday. Excellent service from Allen and Skully. Half price glasses of wine and appetizers. The beef sliders and the calamari are top notch

Review №84

Very nice.

Review №85

Three of us had exquisite food this evening! We started with fried green tomatoes topped with crab as our appetizer. Delicate but homey. My grown so had lamb chops, husband had chicken but mine was the best. Scallops with mushroom risotto and fried spinach. Dessert was bread pudding with raspberry. Amazing!

Review №86

Was not what I was expecting in my meal. No flavor to my fish.

Review №87

Great food and service both.

Review №88

Great food, great music, great service. Had and amazing raspberry vodka martini and appetizers. We had the fried oysters, goat cheese crostini and fried lobster bites. The salads with the appetizers were a great compliment to each dish. The 3 appetizers were more than enough food. Of course, when we heard about the desserts,blueberry bread pudding and a 10 layer chocolate cake , we decided to take one slice of each home. We did have the Aspen coffee made with Grand Marnier, Bailey's and Frangelico. A sweet ending to am amazing meal. This is a must place to eat.

Review №89

The service was ok but the food was terrible. My lamb chops were drenched in bbq sauce. It seemed like I was eating ribs. The only reason we came here was because of the photo of the lamb chops on their Google listing. I asked for well done, and the first cut into the lamb chops was seeping blood. The side of potato lasagna was not cooked, only the first third of the layer. The waiter was apologetic, but it honestly ruined our night. We did not accept for them to "take it off our tab". Apparently they had a new "chef". Aspen Grill is definitely not even a 3 star restaurant.

Review №90

Awesome dinning experience. Kudos to the chef. Great atmosphere great dinner music. Looks from outside in strip mall is more casual. My husband was more casually dressed than myself but they welcomed us in and it was fabulous. I would dress business casual not gym shorts but it was a delicious meal would love to go back!

Review №91

Best crab cake I ever tried, andAppetizer Fried green tomato was something very differentDessert I recommendCreme brulee..even coffee was good too :)Please try.

Review №92

Exceptional service and food, the food was well cooked and tasteful. From beginning to end, down to the waiter. If and when we come back to Myrtal a Beach we are most definitely coming back! Thank you.

Review №93

My fiance and I celebrated our engagement here. The food was obsolete, very flavorful and unique. The service was outstanding and we had an amazing experience for our first time, they even gave us a card congratulating us on our happy engagement! Very empressed and will be visiting more frequently. Must go!

Review №94

This restaurant is higher in price, but the food and the service was fantastic. The accommodate food allergies with ease and had live music which made for a great atmosphere.

Review №95

Beautifully presented food and wonderful taste.

Review №96

When taking our drink order, at a 2 top near the bar. The bartender inappropriately touched my female dinner companion. She didn't alert me to this until we were some miles away, headed home. Not cool at all.

Review №97

This is an amazing place to go to. They have live music and amazing food.

Review №98

Food, service and atmosphere was very good but bring your big wallet. The music was a little loud.

Review №99

The staff was very friendly and helpful, there was even a happy anniversary card for me and my boyfriend. The food was just ok.

Review №100

Our server, Will was an excellent server and professional. He did an excellent job. My wife and I were from out of town and we had a great time away from the Myrtle Beach strip. Very appealing setting for someone in our age group - 60.Calm professional and appealing. If you want to get away from the teeny boppers this is the place to go. Excellent food, nice prices and setting. Good people.
