  • FIRST TIME. NICE BUT WANTED MORE
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    Our anniversary so we tried for first time. Greeted warmly and wished Happy Anniversary. Personal card on table. Music was nice but restaurant held several large parties who were noisy. One waiter shouting to his customers. Martini list was exceptional and prices surprisingly affordable. Server put in order for wife for special Martini awesome…Georgia Peach!! My Tilapia with shrimp was ample and excellent and large baked potato cooked to perfection. 3Cheese and baguette dip superb and my wife ate so much she wasn't hungry. She ordered shrimp cocktail which was huge and perfect. Also ordered asparagus with bernaise sauce. Asparagus over salted!! No warm rolls as shown on menu. Over all ok but not very romantic!!

    The food was excellent. Clearly well thought out menu with a large selection and flexible sides / add-ons. The drinks were prepared by a seasoned veteran bartender and matched the drink menu descriptions exactly (martinis/fruitinis in particular). Service was fantastic as well. We will definitely look forward to returning.

    I have dined here maybe 8 times....I always ask for Shawne (woman server) but she was not there that night...so I had read some other reviews since I was concerned that there was a new owner...and it seemed that Sam got great reviews...he was very good and professional....accommodating and nice....and he brought the food exactly as we ordered it... I wasn't crazy about the wine by the glasses list but I ordered a very good half bottle of cabernet that was very good. I ordered my bone in ribeye Pittsburgh style and the chef cooked it beautifully...the potato au gratin was super!!

    Steak Diane was very good. Grouper Newburg was good but could have used more Grouper. I had two shrimp, one scallop, and one little piece of grouper. It was mostly pastry. I would choose something else next time. The service was excellent.

    This restaurant is really a cut above the rest in Myrtle Beach. The food is excellent and the service outstanding. Owners Paige and Rob go the extra mile to make sure that you have a wonderful experience. I really appreciate that they are willing to come by personally and ask how you are enjoying your meal. I have recommended Martini to several of my friends and business associates. I have gotten an email or call after each have visited and been thanked for the referral. Martini is my go to restaurant for personal and professional occasions.

  • Absolutely amazing 2 years in a row

    Dined on 8/8/2014
    I honestly could not tell you what those two negative reviews in a row were talking about (see late July, oddly similar reviews, possibly from local competitors). My husband and I found this local gem last year while on vacation and made a point to go again this year with the whole group. No surprise...it was amazing AGAIN! The ambiance is very old New York. Always an awesome performer in the bar area. The service is outstanding, from the server to the management. You can tell that they truly care about their customers. The custom martinis are too die for delicious, such that I snapped some pics on my phone of the drink recipes to try and recreate at home (sorry Martini's). And the food - Oh the food. It's a must do in NMB!

    Ate here while on vacation in MB. My mother was disappointed that her favorite piano bar had closed 2 years ago, so I found this place for her. We all had a great dinner & enjoyed the piano music as well as the atmosphere. Service was great. Manager even went out of her way to go to her office and register a restaurant dot com gift certificate we had, since we didn't realize it had to be validated first. Prime rib was wonderful! Martini's were all good! There is a martini special on Thursday night. Wish we had a place like this to go to where we live!

    I ordered the lump crab crusted grouper. Before ordering I asked if it was "fake"" crab and was told by our server that it was real lump. It was not. There was no lump crab in evidence at all and it tasted like the imitation. Plus my piece of grouper was miniscule. Definitely not worth the $25+ pricetag. I will not go there again for dinner. Plus the restaurant is so dark inside that I expected to see mushrooms growing on the floor. The entertainer was torture to listen to. The only good thing was the attentiveness of our server.

    I use Opentable several times a month and have never had a bad meal. Unfortunately, it was bound to happen. There were six of us at dinner. The meals effectively used the same sauce and flavoring on multiple entrees. For the ambiance of the place, the food was poor at best. I would not go back for food, atmosphere and drinks were nice and server was friendly, but you you have to eat this was not the place to do it. We all had seafood which should be a specialty at the beach. Maybe steaks are better. However, the side items were as bad as the entree.

    While vacationing in NMB we decided to try Martini for dinner. Normally, I'd critique the performance of the kitchen and/or service, but both of these were OK. Our server was courteous and friendly and the food delivered from the kitchen was just ordinary. This isn't due to the lack of caring or talent on the part of the kitchen staff. I'd place this on the owner's attempt to save money by scrimping on the quality of the ingredients. For $30 a ribeye entrée should not be fatty, gristly and hard to chew. My partners seafood special wasn't. My suggestion would be go for a drink (cocktails were very good) but eat elsewhere.

    An excellent neighborhood restaurant. The menu selection is diverse, and everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their dinner. The ambiance is quiet and romantic, especially is in a "back corner" booth. Nightly live entertainment. We enjoyed the soft background music from the guitar player. A very enjoyable experience--we will be back

    Just a lovely restaurant in the midst of busy Highway 17 in North Myrtle Beach. We went on a Thursday which is $5 martini night. The restaurant is romantic, dimly lite and the food was great! We would go back again on our next trip to Myrtle Beach. They have their own wine label which makes a nice souvenir to take home if you collect wine bottles.

    Our party of 3 had prime rib, soup, salad etc. It was done the way we ordered and very good. She crab soup was terrific. Wines and martini's were excellent and the bar bill nearly equaled the food bill. When the happy hour ended, the place quieted down. You pay for what you get, but the value is good and the service was attentive. Parking on WED before happy hour close was difficult.
