    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    My husband and I went for a special occasion after having tried to make reservations a few times before. The food not only met our expectations, they were exceeded. We got scallops rockefeller, Jamon Iberico, and escargot to start. All three were delicious and set the tone for our meal. We decided to get steaks and share two of the sides. I had a barrel cut filet, while my husband had one of the specials-the Kansas City Strip steak. We shared asparagus and creamed spinach with goat cheese, ALL excellent choices. The wine list is very extensive. Our server Jason(ask for him, he's great) suggested a Spanish wine to pair with my steak and he was spot on. After dining there, I understand why reservations are always full. Excellent.

    2nd year coming for a spectacular dinner while on vacation. Can't say enough of the ambience, service and the fantastic food! We luckily had Jason as our server for 2nd year -fantastic service but knowledge and recommendations were absolutely on point and well received. He made the dining experience, once again, so much better. We brought another couple with us this year because of our previous great experience. They are sold and raved to all of our other friends down for same vacation every year.

    My wife and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary at Sea Blue. We had excellent experience. The food was fabulous and the service was superb. Our table was private and romantic. The chef knows how to prepare and season the food. The duck was fantastic and the wild Alaskan Halibut was delicious. Our server, Hillary, was attentive, polite, social, and humorous. It felt as if we were at a five-star restaurant. We highly recommend Sea Blue Restaurant.

    This our 1st time in N. Myrtle Beach. We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary. I read the O T reviews & decided to try Sea Blue & very happy we did. Thee cuisine was unique local & outstanding. The chef has a very inspired menu that made it difficult to chose an entree. I wante 3 or 4. The service & atmosphere were just right for our special occasion. We will be back to try the rest of the menu.

    They should be happy serving great food but they aren't. They try too hard and end up making what could be a great dish into something that is so complex and has so much going on that it's just not good nor is it enjoyable. It seems they love salt too. All of our dishes had way too much salt. Oh yea, if you sit inside you freeze from the a/c. We sat outside with A great view of the shopping center and parking lot. Save your money and don't go.

    My husband and I agree that SeaBlue is one of the top 5 best dining experiences we have had. Considering our ages, that's saying something! It was truly an epicurean delight! Wonderful filet cooked to perfection. Crab cakes with little to no filler. The potatoes au gratin was presented like a slice of cake...very cool! The ambiance is low-key and romantic. I would highly recommend SeaBlue. Perfect for a special occasion.

    The food here was definitely above average. The service was excellent, with the staff very knowledgeable, especially the sommelier. Very nice choice of wines. We chose the tasting menu for food, and the chef actually brought several courses to our table. the foie gras was very tasty, as well as the scallops rockefeller. The restaurant was very expensive, but was quite nice for our special occasion.

Filet cooked to perfection and love how martinis are served in stainless steel and remain cold. Hillary hostess was super friendly. Chris, I think, strawberry blonde waiter aimed to please.....food was so delicious...even talked about it the next day. Found out about SEABLUE from 10best.com site. Kudos to all of you!

    It's Myrtle Beach, what else do I need to say? Pancake houses and buffet seafood. This is one of a few places that understands quality. The Foie Gras was delectable. My duck in a very nice blackberry BBQ sauce was outstanding. Wifey had the signature dish, "fruits of the sea", and believed it was her best seafood meal of the week. Just go! You won't regret it.

    SeaBlue is our favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach. Not only is the menu outstanding, but the owners and employees are as well. We are always warmly greeted and made to feel at home. The food is prepared with local, fresh ingredients and paired with vintage quality wines that won't break the bank but will satisfy any oenophile. One of our favorite treats is to order the chef's tasting menu. It's always new, fresh and exciting and rivals Michelin star restaurants we've visited around the world. Regardless of what is ordered it will be cooked exactly to order and temperature, in a timely manner and served with a genuine smile because they know how much you're going to enjoy your meal experience.

    If you are looking for an exceptional and unusually fine dining "experience" in North Myrtle Beach, SC.... visit Sea Blue Restaurant and Wine Bar. It was my recent good fortune to dine there with visiting friends. I recommend it highly, and without reservation, for a special occasion or if you simply want to be pampered in an atmosphere which heightens all your senses. The food is phenomenal, the service outstanding and each plate a work of culinary art. The bar staff creates magnificent potent potables in a most relaxed and friendly setting.

    Nice restaurant overall , service could have been better had to ask for fresh cracked pepper. Menu presentation in a black binder with Office Depot dividers on it and showing really tacky, really took down the restaurant a notch. Portions were relatively large all in all would oh back for two dinner And apps and a few drinks 176.00 plus 40.00 tip but they really need to change the menu common!!!! I would have expected for one of top 100 restaurants that they would have cleaned the crumbs off table etc go the extra mile , but that show lack of proper training for wait staff !!

    Fabulous food, atmosphere and service. We treated our family, including eight year old twins, to our last night at the beach here. My girls loved their escargot and lobster and the chef split their meal for us. Salads were fresh and not dressing laden. Dinner was grouper and crab cakes which were on point. Followed by sorbet and yoo hoo creme brûlée, which was decadent. Will be back again when we return to N. Myrtle.

    My husband and I chose SeaBlue for our only date night during vacation, knowing it would be pricey, but thought we would try it after reading many great reviews. For a restaurant in a strip mall, the atmosphere was actually very cool. We arrived early to sit at the bar and met one of the owners. Tracy could not have been more pleasant and accommodating, even though she was very busy. She even introduced us to our server before dinner. Faith took wonderful care of us. The wine, scallops, spinach salad, and both steaks were perfectly prepared and absolutely excellent and the creme brûlée was some of the best I have ever tasted! Definitely worth the cost!

    The food and the service at SeaBlue are outstanding and rate with the best anywhere. We requested a quiet table to celebrate a milestone anniversary and were accommodated with a booth in the back corner that felt very private. Although we had an early reservation, it felt like we had the table for the whole evening - we were never rushed. Jason's service made us feel like welcomed guests - friendly, knowledgeable & the meal and wine were perfectly timed. If you love beef, in addition to Prime quality, they offer even higher quality Japanese and American Wagyu beef - the flavor and tenderness of the American was an experience well worth the extra cost. The duck breast with foie gras sausage was easily the best duck dinner I've had. Go!!
