  • "We visited Myrtle Beach April 17 - 20. The weather did not cooperate. Dinner at Aspen Grille was the highlight of our trip. We had a 7 p.m. reservation and requested earlier that day to move it to 8 p.m., no problem. We were greeted and taken to our table right away -- the restaurant was very busy, but not chaotic. Our server, Will, was friendly, professional and helpful. All of the food was cooked to perfection and the chef visited tables later in the evening to confirm everyone enjoyed their meals. I finished my meal with a 40 year tawny, a rare find in so many so-called fine dining establishments. We loved Aspen Grille and will make the trip back to Myrtle Beach just to eat there again."

  • "My partner and I searched long and hard for a good gourmet meal in Myrtle Beach. The Aspen Grille was the only place that delivered. I had a delicious seared tuna appetizer and braised short ribs that were so tender they melted in my mouth. Everything was cooked and seasoned to perfection and the cocktails we ordered were equally as delectable. The service was exceptional. "

  • "This was our 2nd time dining here and I was just as happy as the first time. Food was excellent, service was great! I love that they offer smaller portions on some of their meals and "skinny" cocktails for those of us watching our weight! "

  • "Best restaurant in Myrtle Beach? I don't think so. Short staffed on waiters, as we were told. Took 20 minutes just to place a drink order. Kind of ruined it from the start. The drinks were very good, but it kind of ended there. Calamari tasted like it came out of a frozen box. Goat cheese salad was blah. Steak frites was okay, nothing special. French fries were limp. Flounder Oscar was bland. Crab meat seemed to be puréed on top of it. We won't be back."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "So, let me start by pointing out the good things.We started with the BEST oysters Rockefeller we'd ever had. The escargot was perfect, the mushroom cap adding something delectable I'd never tried elsewhere.We also tried the bruschetta, PHENOMENAL.The tomatoes and herb mixture was incredibly fresh and the goat chees was superb.We were all so happy with our apps we couldn't wait to dig into the steaks. So, now the 'low' point of the evening. My filet was very bland, as was my friends, literally NO flavor. The lobster accompaniment was also bland, and little tough.The mashed potatoes added to the disappointment with little to no flavor. Sad the one thing they are known for was bad. Our friend who ordered the shrimp and grits WAS pleased."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Warm, relaxing atmosphere. Fabulous, friendly service. Fresh, flavorful food. The blueberry bread pudding with salt and caramel ice cream was to die for. Highlight of our trip through Myrtle Beach."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "My husband and I love Myrtle Beach for the golfing but hate going to these food chains or roadhouses that try and out do each other as far as the quantity of food they give you. Eating a 20 oz steak with a mound of fries is not our idea of a great meal. The food at Aspen Grille was wonderful and our waitress Brin did a great job recommending a wine based on the food we ordered. As an appetizer we ordered the Raw Oysters that came with homemade cocktail sauce. I was disappointed that they put a small teaspoon of sauce on each oyster. My suggestion would be to place the sauce on the side since I prefer to enjoy the taste of the Oyster and not mask it with the sauce. Otherwise the food was wonderful and we will absolutely be back."

  • "We are so glad we found Aspen Grille through Open Table because had we been deriving around Myrtle Beach we would have never found this restaurant, or quite honestly probably wouldn't have stopped here because it is in a strip mall away form the hustle and bustle of the strip. With that being said, the moment you walk in the door, you are greeted by friendly hostesses and a warm. romantic welcoming atmosphere. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. The Warm Goat Cheese salad stood up to it's reputation and was excellent as were the crab cakes and the Flounder Oscar. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to have a culinary treat at the beach."

  • "From the shrimp risotto appetizer to the melt-in-your-mouth crab cake, the food was inventive, expertly prepared, and delectable. My waiter was prompt and courteous, and the hosts had my table waiting. The experience was wonderful!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Not sure why this is not rated higher. We had the escargot as a starter, which was perfectly delicious. The tripper fish special was perfectly cooked. My sons had the scallops and the short ribs- also perfect and delicious. Would definitely return to this restaurant."

  • "THIS is FINE DINING. This was a flash back to MAD MEN. A singer who's VERY GOOD. Waitstaff that glide around the tables serving wonderful food. It's the experience that you do not find very often. The food was very very good. From fried oysters to fresh fish prepared perfectly One half of the restaurant is classy and the other half bar scene. We very much enjoyed it."

  • "Aspen Grille was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in Myrtle Beach. The ambiance was perfect, wait staff was outstanding. Menu had a great selection of seafood mixed with more traditional American cuisine, which suited our needs perfectly as my husband has shellfish allergy (making seafood restaurants suspect for us.) Located in the residential area of North Ocean Blvd, Aspen Grille is the perfect place to get away from the hulla-balloo that is Myrtle Beach. We typically vacation about 50 miles north in Oak Island, NC, but would readily make the drive (through Calabash) to dine at Aspen Grille."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Aspen Grille is a favorite of ours. We are never disappointed in the food or service. Always greeted by friendly, smiling staff. We started with the crab bisque. Yummy! Husband had the filet and I had the flounder special. Both were perfectly prepared. We shared the brownie sundae desert served warm and also excellent. Highly recommended!"

  • "Great food, service and ambience. Unusual and delicious selections. Highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. Note: the GPS indicates the wrong side of the road so watch for the small strip mall to find the restaurant."

  • "I had reservations for 8pm, due to traveling we ran late but was able to get reservations redone on a busy Friday night with no problems. once we arrived the greeting was wonderful and so was the service. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a intimate setting and wonderful food and service."

  • "We were a bit disappointed in the abundance of mediocre restaurants in Myrtle Beach, though admittedly did not have much time to research the area. We chose Aspen Grille because the wine list was very nice. Though not ocean side or grand in appearance, the inside was lovely, and there was excellent live music (piano/horn/vocalist). We were seated in a corner, where conversation was easily heard. Service was excellent, all around. I had the medium plate of grilled scallops, warm goat cheese salad, and oysters (for starters). All perfect. My husband had lobster tail and a pork dish with sweet potato ... flavors and preparation couldn't have been better, and portion sizes just right. A memorable highlight of the trip!"

  • "It was our first time and we really enjoyed our meal. The ambience was also perfect, there was a jazz guitarist. We would recommend it to all off the people from Québec, Canada."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The food was fresh and seasoned to perfection. Fantastic service. Our waiter, Herman was very helpful and thoroughly familiar with the menu. He was also attentive without being obtrusive. Dined early (6pm), so that might account for the quietness as there were not many diners present. It was also a Tuesday evening."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "From the first moment we walked into the door, our experience was perfect. The only negative was, having read a review that mentioned the portions were small, we ordered appetizer, salad and full entrees. By the time the entrees arrived, we were all ready pretty much full. The salad special of the day was an arugula with fried oysters. The oysters were large and perfectly cooked. One more oyster and it could be an entrée. My husband had the filet and loved it. I had the Braised Beef, also very good. We would definitely return the next visit to Myrtle Beach."

  • "Our table for two was quickly and happily upgraded to a group of 10+ with children on very short notice. The banquet room accommodated our small group perfectly. Service was excellent. The owner even stepped in to make sure our experience was everything we were looking for. Actually it far exceeded our expectations. The ambiance was exactly what we were looking for. Elegant and romantic. And thankfully our children were welcomed."

  • "Had a great time at Aspen Grille. Had the Caesar Salad, Filet Mignon (this was one of the best I've ever eaten), house cut fries, and their 10 layer cake for dessert. Every part of the meal was fantastic. The atmosphere felt very positive. The entire staff was very attentive - even the singer was going table to table, and she had a beautiful voice. If you are in town, I would highly recommend."
