  • Brentwood Means Excellent Food, Great Service

    We recently had a lovely meal with friends for my wife's birthday at the Brentwood Restaurant in Little River, SC. The selection of the Brentwood couldn't have been better. The Brentwood Restaurant is located just off Rt. 17, in an old home. The decorations and several rooms for dining makes it a quiet, romantic place to eat a meal. And the food is absolutely delicious. The chef is French, so the menu has a nice French flair. There are plenty of menu choices for all courses of the meal, including a Chef's pairing, which looked very interesting. All four of us had different appetizers and entrees, including filets and fresh seafood, and no one was disappointed. The food was cooked exactly as expected and was wonderfully seasoned. And although the food was incredible, our waiter was even better. He did a great job of explaining the various specials and menu choices and was very knowledgeable of each dish, how they were prepared, and what type of wines that each dish would pair with. He was very attentive and helpful. For fine dining, a quiet, romantic evening with your loved one, or a nice dinner with friends, the Brentwood is not only the top choice in Little River, but it is one of the better places in the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand area. Go, enjoy, and Bon Apetit!

    We have dined at Brentwood many times and always enjoy the food and ambience. This time my husband ordered the pork osso bucco and Ihad the rare tuna. Both were outstanding! We had great service from Dorothy and very pleasant wine by the glass. We will return to Brentwood when we are looking for an upscale dinner out.

    We chose this restaurant because three of the four diners had not been here before. What a great choice. The atmosphere, ambiance, and the superb service and food are not to be duplicated. Four high school friends met 45 yeas later to celebrate their friendships, and this place was unmatched. It's off the "beaten" path, and has ghosts to add to the intrigue. From the cocktails with infused vodka to the apps and entrees, it was a dining experience of the first degree. This is a spot not to be missed when in North Myrtle Beach, and those who choose to stay in the southern reaches of Myrtle Beach, should really venture "up North" to check out this gem.

    We took out of town guests for dinner and were disappointed in the food, service, and noise level. The fish was dry and had very little taste although it was supposed to be a Creole dish. The service was very slow and the noise level made it difficult to carry on a conversation. On a positive note, the seafood crepes were delicious.

    No question, this is a special place in the Outer Banks. While it is not a shrimp only restaurant, it is an upscale French style restaurant, It is not the place to go for a quick dinner with your guests but if you want to have a special evening during your vacation, I can recommend The Brentwood Restaurant without reservation.

    We have been to brentwood a number of times. Several for special occasions of which they ALWAYS make the most. I usually get what is the special and have never been disappointed. More important, the misses, who knows much more about the specials and the preparation side of what they explain, is happy !! Some of what they explain is at or over my knowledge level, but I trust the suggestions and it has ALWAYS been great even if I couldn't pronounce all of the menu. Go to dine and try something new. At worst, in my experience, it will be only G R E A T ..

    This funky Victorian serves great French inspired meals, reason enough to come here. It's a respite from fried seafood typical of restaurants in the area. A bonus is the interesting history of the place, stories of ghosts and other para normal activity with a friendly staff. Those in my party highly recommend the crab bisque, truffle vichyssoise, seafood crepe and tuna.

    We enjoyed the food experience at Brentwood, but our seating could have been better. We were seated at a table for two between 2 tables for 4 in the bar area. So much for a romantic dinner, or private conversation. We'll go back for the food (which truly was good), but not when it's just the 2 of us.

    My friend and I enjoy a girls night out every week. This past Friday we chose to go to the Brentwood and we were quite pleased. Our reservation was available when we arrived but we asked if they would hold the table while we went to get a drink at the bar. They did, graciously. The bar however was another story. We had to wait more than 10 minutes just to get waited on (and this is a very small bar) When our drinks arrived, mine was good but my friends was not even drinkable. That matter was resolved and we went to our table where our waiter was well informed, friendly and loaded with personality. Our meal choices were wonderful and we will definately go back.

    Small rooms provide a nice privated setting for smaller parties. Variety of appetizers, entrees etc gives one a great deal to choose from. Food is cooked correctly,never overdone or cold, and service is good. There are a variety of wines to choose from at a reasonable price. don't forget dessert - all home made and delicious. Reservations needed. While we are on vacation we make sure we get there at least once a week.

    It was our anniversary. We arrived early for "happy hour" specials. The bar upstairs was filled (make sure you reserve that)so we went to the downstairs bar. Our waitress Dorothy was wonderful she took care of us from start to finish.We started off with she crab soup(to die for)and and a single cheese plate,and bread(also to die for).We moved to a table which had a small frame that said Happy anniversary ,a vase with small roses and petals and heart confetti on the table. We had the Trigger fish special which my husband said was awesome and Shrimp and scallops(Iron chef winner) that was also very good. It was a little more leeky than cheesy.We had more bread of course and there was no room for dessert.The owners husband even talked to us.

    Brentwood is located about half an hour north of Myrtle Beach in a converted Victorian house well off the main road with ample free parking. We dined in the first room on the right inside the front door, which had about half a dozen tables. Two were occupied on our arrival. While comfortable it was a bit quiet and in such a small room it was hard to have a conversation without everyone else hearing. A couple who came in later, while it was just the four of us, commented that it was so quiet that they could hear us chewing. The food was very good and the service good but a bit hurried. The escargot were delicious. I had a Filet Wellington that they nicely prepared med well. My wife had a pork osso bucco that was yummy but huge.

    Never disappoints.... With the addition of the very reasonably priced petit plates menu and the Friday fish specials, the Brentwood doesn't have to be your special occasion destination anymore but, rather, a "regular" dining experience. The appetizers are unique and available for happy hour prices upstairs in the bistro every evening from four until six. The escargot is to die for!

    My husband and I ate here on September 4. We loved everything about this restaurant. When we were seated in the first room on the right, there were 2 couples already seated. All of us enjoyed great conversation about our food and where everybody lived while we ate dinner. I loved it! The food was amazing. I had grouper with lobster risotto and enjoyed every bite of it. My husband got the "prix fixe" with the wine option. He had Petit Filet Au Poivre. All of the wine my husband had with dinner was great. The atmosphere is great. The restaurant is in an old house with lots of character so definitely walk around and look at all the antiques etc in the house. Service was outstanding! Our waiter was very attentive. Definitely going back!

    It was our second time to this restaurant. The first one was two years ago, and last year we could not make it. Per my wife a dinner at this restaurant well worth a 3 hr drive from Raleigh. I highly recommend their prix fixe menu. A great value and good flow thru the meal. The owner/chef Eric personally stops by each table and engages you into a conversation. Will definitely go there again.
