Diner Reviews
  • "We introduced friends of ours to The Brentwood and they had a lovely time and enjoyed fabulous food. Service by James and Joe was superb. They are very attentive and ensure your dining experience is a good one. What can I say about the food. Awesome. The Brentwood is the only restaurant of its type in the area. This is the place to go when you can't face more fried sea food or another Italian restaurant. You will definitely return."

  • "I have eaten here several times. The Wine Club dinner is great, menu unexpected and preparation and presentation very pleasing. The owner is attentive to every detail. He visits every table and makes you feel like you are a guest. The Brentwood is the first on my list of places to take guests. I can expect well prepared food, friendly attentive service and prices that don't break the bank. They have a reasonably priced children's menu with several selections. Try it for yourself you will be pleased."

  • "We read the reviews on this place and decided to try it. We were more than happy with the whole experience. Varied menu selections all well prepared. Escargot, vicyshisoi (sp), osso buco, steak and lobster tail, home breads all superb. The prices were moderate, The wine list more than adequate with good selections at various prices. The owners visited most in the dining room. A good find we will return."

  • "We wanted to treat some friends to a special evening and searched for just the right spot - thank goodness we found Brentwood! We made the pleasant 25 minute drive from Ocean Isle and had the best meal of the vacation. It was everything we hoped for and then some. Every dish we had was wonderful, the ambiance of the mansion is lovely, and our server (James?Joe?) really made the evening one to remember. Our friends were very impressed, and we will all be back!!"

  • "Testing the waters of southern N Carolina, we were intriguided by the idea of French dining. The escargot was delicious; I require gf so I was apprehensive. The first out had bread crumbs-opps. But the server went back to the kitchen and the garlic cream sauce on my gf dish was great. The hollandaise on my grouper was perfect taste of lemon. Panna cotta with a rum sauce for dessert finished the evening."

  • "One of our go to restaurants when my wife did not have time to shop at the market and prepare her usually fantastic gourmet meal. This trip met our standards for exquisite food. Great chef, wonderful traditional French dishes using locally sourced produce,quiet setting. Absolutely a good little gem of a find in the Myrtle Beach area. Worth the drive to Little River."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Brentwood. We enjoyed every moment....from the friendly greeting, attentive waiter, through the decadent dessert. We didn't even realize this gem was in our back yard. We'll be back more often........not just for a special occasion."

  • "Love the old home the restaurant is in. The food and service are always great. They added a seared tuna with seaweed to the menu...delicious. Glad I ordered it. good happy hour too well worth the visit...Keeps us coming back again and again"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The salad was gritty. I asked for no pepper and he still put pepper on it. The she crab soup and green tomatoes were very good appetizers. My husband got the ahi tuna and his was very good. I got the shrimp and scallops, the asparagus on it was good and the sauce with noodles was very good. The shrimp was chewy and the scallops were not cooked properly. I let my husband have some and he spit it out. I left all my shrimp and scallops on my plate and the h girl picking up dishes didn't even bother to ask why or if i wanted a to go box. Like she already knew it was nasty. It was my husband's birthday so I'm glad his was good, but no we will not be going back."

  • "We tried the Paris 4-course menu with wines selected by the chef, starting with the cod croquette which was excellent and vicysoise. Next was a salad with a light miso dressing (the dressing was definitely on the light side for our taste, but otherwise, an ideal palate cleanser). The main courses were duck confit and beef. Both were excellent, with the duck tender and flavorful and the beef cooked to perfection. Finally, we both had a superb creme brulee. The wines picked to accompany each dish, were excellent choices. We have been meaning to go to Brentwood for several years since we live on the Grand Strand. We are delighted that we finally went. We intend returning since there were several other things on the menu we would like to try."

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We tend to be a bit picked about food....at the Brentwood, we had a hard time choosing between the mouthwatering choices. I especially appreciated the "small" versions of many of the choices. I don't use many spices in my cooking, so we're often wary...but the flavor was so fresh and not overwhelming. The service was excellent and all staff was friendly and prompt. They encouraged us to walk around the restaurant which we did. It's quite lovely. We definitely have to go back to try some other dishes"

  • "Nice location and expected a great experience for my wife's birthday. Instead we got a very unpleasant server. She ignored the kids. She did not review any of the specials. She gave my attitude about her lobster tail order, when my wife asked to see the menu again she replied "Oh wow" as if my wife was putting her out. The kids meal was a stuffed chicken breast, spinach and mushrooms. We spent 5 min removing the good stuff from inside so the kids would eat. Scallops and shrimp portion size small for $27. Disappointed at the service, find it ironic the place has a Best of Service Award, obviously this server was not part of that team. She made for a terrible experience. See the full review on Yelp."

  • "Our waiter was extremely attentive and glided us from our original table adjacent to a large party to a quiet table without drawing attention. Meals were excellent as were the wines. A very cozy and comfortable regular place to dine."

  • "We have dined at the Brentwood on several occasions. Each time we have been impressed with the quality and preparation of outstanding meals. Wait staff is attentive, polite and accommodating. It's not cheap, but it's well worth it."

  • "We could not have made a better choice for a quiet celebration of our 53rd wedding anniversary. When we had to change our reservation time, we received a positive, good humored response. From the friendly greeting at the door, through courteous, but not intrusive, attention during dinner, to the final pleasure of talking with owner/ chef Erique, our evening was relaxed and enjoyable. The european atmosphere in the old house setting was a rare experience in a town where noisy, seafood restaurants abound. The menu was varied enough to accommodate all tastes, and each item had the French flair that makes food memorable. We will certainly return, not just for a special occasion, but whenever in town."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "What could be better than having your French style food prepared by a true Frenchman with classic French cooking techniques! Fantastic sauces on locally sourced fresh ingredients. Plating was visually appealing matching the complexity of the flavours found in each dish. Timing was spot on despite it being a busy night for the restaurant. Overall great find in a quaint "converted old Victorian home" setting. Definitely recommend if you know and appreciate good food."

  • "Would just like to thank you for my self and my wife for the intimate, and romantic setting you provided for our 49th wedding anniversary dinner celebration. The food was excellent as usual as was the service. Thanks again, Al & Pattie Mitchell"

  • "I have been to Brentwood on special occasions before and been pleased. This experience was not as good. We had a party of 4 and bolt one of the four meals was pleasing. Not having option to substitute soup for salad was a disappointment for one of our guests and charging extra for blue cheese and pears added to small salad was ridulous. I was very dissappointed overall and will not be returning any time in the foreseeable future"

  • "Excellent once again and chef Eric even took the time to prepare steak tartare for me. It is worth the trip and I look forward to my next dining experience."

  • "We started going to the Brentwood a few years ago for their happy hours. This is not your usual loud music, fried foods, pick up joint. The happy hour menu is gourmet, the drinks are strong (not watered down like many places) the food is to die for and the service is impeccable. We love to go here for a casual dinner as well as a special occasion dinner. "

  • "Everyone at the Brentwood went above and beyond to make our anniversary dinner not just a dinner but the most wonderful evening we have ever had! We were seated upstairs in the beautiful bar area where our table was decorated and a special message left noting our special occassion. Our server Joe could not have been more attentive, helpful and most of all FUN!! The food was wonderful and the wines served with each course were perfect. This was the epitome of the phrase "dining experience" ! We will be back more often and will always recommend it to friends."

  • "We find The Brentwood to have an aura of romance in both the setting and the taste of France. We enjoyed the menu with all of its choices as well as the wine list. In fact we took two bottles of a hard to get wine back home to enjoy at a later time. It was a pleasure just being there."

  • "We dined at the Brentwood for my birthday when vacationing in the area in May. The food was quite good, but we waited a long time for each course. The waitress reported "problems in the kitchen." This was forgivable, and the waitress was nice and very apologetic. What bothered us most was that the restaurant simply is not attractive. Hanging on the walls were cheap prints as well as a completely hideous board with various wine opening devices attached, a very poor excuse for "art." It would probably not cost a lot of money to improve the décor in the Brentwood, and it would enhance the dining experience."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Initially we were skeptical about a "French Restaurant" in typically kitsch North Myrtle Beach (actually, Little River, just up the road). Brentwood, however, is a diamond-in-the-rough. Food was excellent (our party of 4 had escargot, petit fillet, scallops, shrimp), perfectly prepared; great wine list; outstanding (and inexpensive!) speciality martinis. Will definitely return next time we're on the coast."

  • "The Brentwood is a rarity in this part of SC where most resturants cater to the tourist trade and rush you out the door. The food is excellent and the service is what you would expect in a a fine resturant. What more is there to say."
