OMG!!! We had the beef tips and shrimp appetizer. We enjoyed the Prohibition Manhattan and the martini with the blue cheese stuffed olives. Followed by the rack of lamb and the duck cerise. The bourbon cherry sauce is exquisite! Finished up with their champagne peach cheesecake, which was seasonal, but should definitely be kept on the menu. Spent a couple of hundred easy, but it was well worth it. A beautiful and intimate dinner with an attentive server. Brian M. made our meal memorable. Highly recommended. Step over to 88 Keys door and enjoy live music and beautiful ambiance

Looking for a high end romantic experience? Not here, unless you don't mind sitting next to a screaming 18 month old. Dinner went from a 4 to a 1 in a matter of minutes. Ironically, my husband and I live minutes away, enjoy fine wine and dining out regularly and frequently. Our tab? $300+ won't be back.

Review №3

We came here for our anniversary, and everything was perfect. The cocktails were delicious, and the food was incredible. The best part of the experience was Bryan, who we enjoyed talking to him every time he came over to the table and honestly could have chatted with him all night. He made the evening.

Review №4

Fabulous food. Fabulous drinks. Fabulous service. Our waiter Bobby was fabulous. Not only was he informative and patient, he had wonderful points about the area. Highly recommend!

Review №5

Beautiful place, fantastic people, amazing food as always. Personalized touches from Shad and Chris always make for a special evening!Shad, Thank You for continuing to make your place a special place for Myrtle Beach food lovers. The 88 Keys piano bar addition is an escape in and of itself! Great addition!Cheers

Review №6

Very pricey! Wine list is extremely overpriced to the point of being insulting. Hess chardonnay $60 when its $12.00 at Publix? Come on. The food was good but again overpriced for the quality. The 10 oz fillet mignon was overcooked on the outside but undercooked in the center. The service was a little uneven as we had different servers coming to the table. The original waiter dropped the check before we were finished and kept coming by to pick it up which made us feel rushed.To add insult to injury they seated a couple with a noisy 2 year old child next to us. Needless to say at $300.00 including tip for one entrée, one appetizer,one dessert, and a bottle of wine, we won't be rushing back. NYC prices with Myrtle Beach service and quality.

If I could give this place 100 stars I would. People....PEOPLE....This place is a hidden gem that will blow your mind. From the moment you make the reservation to the time you finish your meal, you will have exceptional service, the most mouth watering food you would ever have in your life. I can not believe I didn't know about this place before. My husband and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary and I simply could not had found a better place. When you are done with your meal, please...please go next door to 88 keys piano bar. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Review №8

The decor and theme are interesting and pretty. Our sever was phenomenal. She made the experience so much better. However, we were very disappointed with the quality of the food. We spent $250. The food was poorly seasoned, and low-quality.

Review №9

Food was outstanding..and our waiter Robert made the whole experience worth while. Definitely will be visiting here again

Review №10

Truly amazing atmosphere, but forget all that the food is rediculous. Expect to spend a couple bills but it's absolutely worth every penny. If I had known this place was so good I would have listed it as my top pic in Myrtle Beach. Nothing on the strand compares truly. One of the best anniversary dinners ever.

Review №11

We arrived 45 minutes earlier than our reservation time. Only to find that I had made the reservation for the wrong date. Thankfully they accommodated us with a table in the dinning room.Other than the food being extremely delicious, our Sever Josh was the highlight of our night!!!He was extremely professional and very engaging with my best friend and her eight year old daughter.We not only found him as a terrific server but as a friend when we left.We enjoyed the house mushrooms and couldn't believe how tasty the sauce was.We also indulged in escargot, French onion soup, table side caesar salad, halibut, salmon, and lamb chops.We were so full we unfortunately had no room for desert.Josh and the whole staff atThe Library did a fantastic job ensuring our experience was top notch!Also very clean restaurant with plenty of social distancing in place!Bravo!!!

Review №12

Awesome experience! We order a steak they cook in front of you which was super awesome! Service was wonderful and so was the food!

Review №13

Bryan was fantastic and helped me figure out the best choices on the menu. Food was absolutely superb and everything was cooked to perfection.

Review №14

Last Friday my husband and I ate here for a belated Anniversary dinner during our mini get away weekend. Our server was Bobby but I think his real name is Robert. Christina at the bar served us a drink while we waited for our table and she was so very pleasant. The ambience and vibe was so romantic and relaxed just what we needed for our quick getaway from Charleston SC. The food was incredible. I had the Caesar salad made fresh table side and the Shrimp linguini which is the largest dish in the house but soooo tasteful. My husband had the French onion soup which was to die for and a filet special they had that night with blue cheese topped and some sort of sauce that was incredible. The filet you could cut with a butter knife that is how tender it was. The staff and food were all amazing. Bobby who was so sweet and personable personally thanked us as he walked us out holding the door for us and all. Top notch hidden gem. We will definitely be back! Thank you Bobby for a wonderful experience.

Review №15

Great service. Great atmosphere. Food was ok......beef carpaccio......don't order it

Review №16

Sit at the bar. Liz is awesome. Laid back, incredible food, fun experience. I'll absolutely be back.

Review №17

The Library did not disappoint. The cuisine, the atmosphere was exactly what we needed to celebrate our 19 years together. Our server Emmons was amazing and even rocked his first Banana Foster.

Review №18

Simply the best fine dining experience in Myrtle Beach... a must when topping off a great visit and a great regular stop for locals!

Review №19

Upscale restaurant with romantic ambience , food is fantastic, very fine choices of wines .The dessert is delicious !!! The services superb . My husband and I celebrated our 32 Anniversary here .Thank you Brian for take care of us !!

Review №20

I cannot give this place a high enough review, the food is out of this world, and the service is stellar. 20 out of 5 stars, if I had the money to I would drive the 3 hours to eat there every day. Worth the wait and $$$

Review №21

Our dinners were excellent. The servers were attentive. The cocktails were great. Bananas flambe was superb.

Review №22

Been years since we were there. We live in Manhattan an eat at the best NYC s got. The Library is still one of our favorite places and memories. We are going back to Myrtle beach mostly to eat there again.

Review №23

Food was excellent waiter was wonderful very friendly.will come back again highley recommend

Review №24

Just came from the Library for my brother's birthday and it was amazing as always! I love the "speakeasy vibe" in the new location and the piano bar is a must!

Review №25

Warning, this will be long. I decided to take my girlfriend here for our first date, even though we've been dating for 8 months. I was told that they were pricey, but wonderful service and exquisite. Service was ok. After receiving our waters and placing our drinks, we waited for 10 minutes before we got them. Then we ordered appetizers, The Library Mushrooms. They were good, cook was good. Then we received our complimentary bread. We were told to order our everything at once. I ordered the duck aux cheris and my girlfriend ordered the duck a lorange. The food come out after about 30 minutes and. They were good, not great. But just good. The duck was a bit overcooked and the sides, which were carrots and a potato. The potato was seasoned with toasted parmesan, but it was dry. I cut into it, expecting savory and buttery texture. It was far from it. Both mine and my girlfriends were the same. We had decided to try dessert. We ordered the same thing. The chocolate bunt cake garnished with white and milk chocolate, chocolate ganache with whipped cream. It was mediocre at best. The cake was very dry as in didn't use cake flour or maybe the butter wasn't real butter. Either way, we were not impressed. I spent quite a lot of money and expected more quality. The courses came out very slow. We had a 6:30pm reservation. By the time we left, it was just before 8:00pm. We were the 1 of 3 parties in the main dinning area. Try at your own risk, but we won't be back.

Review №26

Make sure to get the steak diane or bananas foster made in front of you at the table

Review №27

Worst and cocky people. Very unfriendly. Would not recommend to enemy

Review №28

Their steak makes all other steak look like shoe leather! Great service, better food!

Review №29

This place never disappoints and I always leave unbelievably full but so grateful for excellent atmosphere, superb service and perfection in my meal. I usually always get the steak diane tableside and its just perfect. We tried a 3 seafood sample which wasn't my was good but I would've preferred the she-crab soup that i've had before because its also a favorite. We also added the lobster tail to dinner and it was the best I have had since being in Maine years ago. For dessert the chocolate molten bundt cake was phenomenal. Bananas fosters table side is also excellent. I wasn't a huge fan of the cherry jubilee. Overall every experience is fantastic and I get to fine tune the menu items that I love.

Review №30

Enjoyed dressing up to celebrate our wedding anniversary at a fine dining restaurant and The Library is the best choice for ambiance in Myrtle Beach. The wait staff Justin and Jason were fantastic, classy but really fun too. The food was out of this world and worth the higher prices!!!

Review №31

Place was perfection. Valentines Day prefixed menu was a surprise as it was not advertised but made complete sense. Food and portions were outstanding and our waiter Danny was top of the line. Worth every penny!

Review №32

Food was great, as were the martinis, our waiter was very unconfident and awkward.

Review №33

Wonderful, wonderful!FYI there is a dress code so that caught us a little off guard but they were understanding.Our server, Bryan was absolutely amazing, extremely polite, and funny. You couldn't say a bad thing about him. Would recommend asking for him by name when making reservations.Seafood Trio appetizer was amazingFrench Onion soup was delicious and what you'd want it to be.Ceaser salad was excellent as well.I had the orange duck (I forget the actual name of it) and my father had the hallibet which were both amazing. Would recommend.I had the mango cocktail, which was mango but not too much sugar.Banannas Foster for desert, was amazing and a great show!

Review №34

We were served by Josh on a fairly quiet night. Everything from the starters, through salad and main course to dessert was superb. The service was both personable and consummately professional, the atmosphere is very quaint. Your wallet may not thank you, but better fine dining cannot be had in Myrtle Beach. Stands with the finest dining you can find in Charleston

Review №35

Love the dessert cocktails, We already ate dinner but stopped in for a dessert cocktail. A wonderful experience . We will be going back for dinner. We heard the Cesar salad and salmon was delicious, cant wait to try.

Review №36

The atmosphere was amazing and the food was as well I'd go again

Review №37

First time visit with my wife and had a fantastic experience, reserved a table online and asked for a table discrete from traffic and to our surprise we got our own private room behind a book shelf. The food was also amazing the Lamb was some of the best i have ever had. Cant wait to go back again.

Review №38

If I lived close enough to visit Library Restaurant more often, I would be so, so poor! Everything about the night was just fantastic. Our server Josh was super friendly and helpful. He even stopped what he was doing to open the door for us on the way out! And don't even get me started on the food. Even the dessert was great. I've been visiting Myrtle Beach for years and I wish I had known about Library Restaurant sooner. It was the best restaurant I've ever been to (so far).

Review №39

Outstanding fine dining, classic dishes like escargot, table side ceaser salad, or Steak Diane are all awesome. A welcome change to casual flip flop dining. Great date night place.

Review №40

The food was amazing but expensive. Not social distancing as I expected ! That was disappointing!

Review №41

We made reservations on Open Table for 8:45 we were called 6:00 telling us we had no reservation. After we had made reservations elsewhere they called at 7:15 and said they could get us a table. No way to run a classy restaurant. They ruined our Anniversary dinner! Stay clear of this place!

Review №42

A memorable night with my wife that was complemented by amazing food, classic ambience and an amazing service by Josh. The professionalism at this restaurant begins at the door with a welcoming smile, follows with a good selection of wine(hard to find Gavi bottles nowadays) Service of five star restaurant, fresh seafood, and ends at the door again with a bigger bye smile. Highly recommended. We were welcomed in without reservation but the establishment does prefer one if possible

Review №43

Don't make a late reservation, they rush you out the door, even after paying $300 for dinner & tip.

Review №44

Exceptional food, atmosphere, and service. For that 'really special' date, book the secret room

Review №45

Everything seemed perfect until we got at hotel and started feeling sick! My husband is now at the hospital and was diagnosed with food poisoning! We spent US$500 to feel this way!! It's a no no no! Don't recommend at all! And we could taste the fishy taste on the shrimp!We called and the owner refused to fix this huge problem!

Review №46

Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Dana was our waitress and did an amazing job. Overall great experience and will definitely be back.

Review №47

Very good service and exquisite food. $$$ costs wise but worth every penny. Small warm atmosphere with very attentive staff.

Review №48

Awesome food, ambiance and service!!!

Review №49

Great service, nice atmosphere, awesome food. Expensive if ordering the specials.

Review №50

I was very disappointed. The Library tries to be an upscale restaurant, but it is not. The decor falls short, especially the TV screen with the fire place picture.The duck and steak where over cooked. The crab was rubbery. There was to much dressing on the salads.If you ant a nice place with great food in the Myrtle Beach area, go to Fire and Smoke.

Review №51

Drinks were amazing, food was excellent. Bartender was a pro at dealing with the cads at the bar.

Review №52

Steak Diane prepared tableside.

Review №53

Fantastic French cuisine. Every detail from the moment you arrive until you finish your three or four course meal is perfectly presented and the staff incredibly attentive and friendly.Of particular noteworthiness is the tableside prepared Caesar salad and the special of the day Colorado lamb chops absolutely fantastic. If you are looking for a very special night out and enjoy impeccable food and service this is the place for you I recommended very highly.

Review №54

Very good food at this fine dining establishment. It is not a family dining venue. $$$$$

Review №55

Delicious food & great waiter. Cute cozy atmosphere surrounded by books on shelves, hence Library Restaurant. Overall good experience.

Review №56

The best restrant food waite staff and experience u will have if u want romantic be shure to dress nice

Review №57

Overall great experience, the food prepared very well and the staff take care of everything from putting the napkin in your lap to double checking ingredients in dishes and altering the dishes if needed for those with allergies.The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. If you are celebrating a special occasion like an anniversary or engagement, this is the spot to go.It's a tad expensive, but everything is available online so you can get a feel for the the cost.All in all, it is a bit price, but it is worth it for the atmosphere, service, and food quality.

Review №58

Not impressed when it was supposed to be a French restaurant. Food was delicious but the sever was horrible and didn't know much about French cuisine and they didn't serve quite a few common French dishes. The server said he had been working there for many years but still treated me and my fiance like we were young stupid kids. The steak was delicious but for the money I spent it wasn't a good experience. My fiance and I had been wanting to go there for years and we finally had a night out away from our children which was the first we had in over a year and to get treated the way we did there it will never happen again. I will not return to this restaurant because of the service.

Review №59

Portions are small but delicious

Review №60

We went for our 39th anniversary dinner.We just got home from having another excellent meal at The Library for our 40th anniversary. I think we have created a new tradition.

Review №61

Excellent service and outstanding food.

Review №62

Love the new piano bar

Review №63

One of the best restaurants in Myrtle Beach... amazing food and great service. The She crab soup is a must have, best in the world!!!

Review №64

This was only our 2nd time here, but both times have been excellent! Food, ambiance, service, all of it was excellent. First time we were there we had the tableside Caesar salad and I had the steak tartar, also made tableside. Outstanding! This time it was a seafood trio appetizer, rack of lamb, and the Alaskan halibut...again outstanding! We will be back and we highly, highly recommend the Library Restaurant! You can't go wrong here.

Review №65

Absolutely phenomenal. Fantastic food with amazing service. Zero complaints and 100% recommend to anyone looking for fine dining. Wish there was one in St. Louis!!! LGB!

Review №66

I've been blessed to travel around this vast planet Earth and to experience many wonderful dishes. Tonight's dinner was EXCEPTIONAL in flavors and service. I could not recommend more highly. Dress your best as you still be enjoying the best meal of your life. Joshua David , thank you!

Review №67

In my opinion this is the best upscale restaurant in Myrtle Beach. Meaning the quality of the food, the quality of preparation of the food, and the best servers.

Review №68

Amazing place! I love the decor in the new location and the food is the best in Myrtle Beach.

Review №69

Really wonderful restaurant. The waiter Joshua was a professional who did a great job familiarizing us with a delectable menu. The cocktails were well crafted by a lovely young lady - who knew her stuff! The food was divine. Went with a seafood theme - though they looked like they had an excellent steak selection as well. The meal was great. The only fault was ours - we ordered two desserts after a huge and tasty meal. We couldn't quite finish. The Caesar Salad and Desserts were prepared table-side and the show was fun to watch. The Chef came out at the end of the meal and we could not thank him enough. Well done Library!!! You guys served a great time and meal! Cheers!!

Review №70

My boyfriend and I decided to have a night out by ourselves on our family vacation to Myrtle Beach and The Library did not disappoint. We work in the service industry and both the food and service exceeded our expectations. We came early and sat in the bar area for half off wine (score!) before our reservations and both the bartender and server we had that night were absolutely great! One of the best dining experiences we've ever had, hands down. The food was fantastic from start to finish, but the French onion soup was TO DIE FOR!!! We hope to be back one day soon!

Review №71

Atmosphere is wonderful and the food is superb! Everything is always so fresh and the flavors are excellent!

Review №72

Above average dining experience. The steaks are so tender you don't need a steak knife. Very fresh and delicious seafood. Wait staff above par. Bananas Foster to die for. Recommend highly for special occasion or fancy dinner.

Review №73

Excellent Food & Atmosphere! Ecspecially for a Date Night

Review №74

Service from Josh was excellent. Filet and lobster delicious and cooked perfectly. Carrots grand marnier with brown carrots I've ever had. Everything was amazing!

Review №75

We made reservations in September for the "private room" after spending 600.00 on our valentines dinner. We felt we should have received better personalized service at no point did anyone ask how we our meal was, out of the four, one was an over cooked grouper. We also put in a 4 course appetizer that was never put in. And was only asked by the manager on the way out how everything was. We've actually received better customer service at carrabba's even after spending 2 1/2 hours and 600 dollars later it was very disappointing.

Review №76

It was great. From the time we walked in till we left the service and food was excellent. We especially had a great waiter. We had Joshua Edwards, he was right on with menu, very outgoing, friendly and professional. Suggest you call for reservation and ask for Joshua. He will take care of you.

Review №77

Excellent food, outstanding service! Greeted at door, escorted to table. Treated like royalties. Excellent cuisine. Waiter Trey, friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. Will be back.

Review №78

Certainly one of the classiest restaurants on the beach. Superb food and menu served with impeccable service. A return visit is a must.

Review №79

What a great place! I'd like to start by saying thank you for getting us in. I made my reservation on OpenTable and some how my reservation was canceled through text. I should have asked what phone number I gave them because I'm pretty sure I wrote down the wrong one and whoever it was canceled. It was my fault 100% percent. But the General Manager, Chris, let us know that he had a table available in their wine cellar. This little room was hidden by a bookshelf that you push open. Normally you have to reserve the room but he made an exception. He served us all night while taking care of his normal duties. Great guy! The food is the best that I've had in Myrtle Beach. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides were wonderful. The blueberry ice cream was out of this world. Thanks for making what could have been a costly mistake on my end into a great night!

Review №80

If you are in the edge about going to this place or not, don't be. Just go. I've been many places and eaten at places that claim to have the best food, well I'm telling you, this place is hands down the best place to eat. Period. The she crab soup is better here than it is anywhere in Charlestown, or anywhere else. Absolutely stunning. I went about a month ago and cannot get this place out of my head. Shad is an excellent manager and ensured our meal was prepared to the fullest extent. Our waiter was well informed and very polite. Thank you Shad, and all of the staff for making it a truly unforgettable experience.

Review №81

Food was very good. Serve excellent. The place is very pricy. Counting appetizer. Salad n beef . Average price 80

Review №82

Absolutely the place to go too for that special occasion. Great food, service, not cheap but here you get what you pay for.

Review №83

My husbands golf trips always include a dinner here.He is a big guy and says the portions are great.Best steaks in town!

Review №84

Great dinner. Great service - Jeff did a great job. Ceasar salad wonderful. Wine was a great value. Wonderful place to spend a rainy evening. Look forward to next dinner there.

Review №85

Nice place for a romantic dinner. I can't say it is the best food for the price, but they try to create a nice ambiance.

Review №86

Excellent food and excellent service! And the ambiance was amazing. Our server was super attentive and pleasant, and the chef created stellar dishes. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits Myrtle Beach!

Review №87

Our server Danny did not seem to be very well informed. The steak plus shrimp and Lobster tail was ordered and no steak knife was placed with the meal had to ask for a knife. Steak which was filet was tough and the s hrimp that was placed inside the shell of the lobster were the very tiny shrimp one would buy frozen at the grocery store . Would have been better to have 3 nice sized shrimp with flavor instead of those frozen shrimp. I had the grouper with shrimp on top however again tiny shrimp no flavor at all. The appetizer were excellent though. But overall not a great experience. Was looking forward to dinner there but was sorely disappointed. For the price paid Sea Blue is so much better.

Review №88

Food great service great

Review №89

I had the Mary Pickford to drink with a Caesar salad salmon and shrimp it's was phenomenal

Review №90

Food, service, atmosphere are all fantastic

Review №91

An excellent meal with excellent service. Would definitely recomend this place. A pleasant surprise

Review №92

Great food. Excellent service

Review №93

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary here and it was a wonderful experience. Josh was very attentive and his recommendations were excellent. My only regret was that I didn't save room for dessert.

Review №94

The Library is truly a divine culinary experience. The food is fantastic and the service is professional and truly unmatched in this area. The '"She Crab Soup" is not your typical She Crab but is a must try. There is not a weak dish on the menu. I promise that you won't be disappointed.

Review №95

The whole experience SUCKED. It was my birthday. My wife took me there. I felt as if I was being judge because I didn't have on a suit and tie to eat dinner. Absolutely hated it.

Review №96

We had a lovely evening there. Our waiter Trey was very knowledgeable about all the dishes. The food was amazing. It's like a really awesome version of Ruth Kris. The seafood was really good. We loved the bananas foster that was prepared table side. Great entertainment. The ambience was very nice. The food is a little on the expensive side but totally worth it. If you are looking for a special seafood or steak meal that isn't a tourist trap, this is the right place to go. You will not be dissappointed. Also, on the way out there are these wonderful dinner mints that taste like key lime pie. Very nice place to spend a 17th wedding anniversary.

Review №97

The food was great (best lobster tail in the area) and Brian, our server, was very good at his job and really made our visit a wonderful one. We will be back.

Review №98

Always a special place for a special evening. Great menu, wine list and professional service.

Review №99

Pricy but worth it. Great service

Review №100

Delicious food and excellent service. We've dined at The Library since the early 80s and it is one if our favorites from Little River to Murrells Inlet. Don't let the change of venue concern you. Everything is still great - just at a new spot.
