    My go to restaurant for a special night out or just an escape to an amazing culinary experience. The owners are passionate about every aspect of delivering a fabulous fine dining experience from the freshest ingredients to premium fish and meats. The servers know their craft. Our server was Jason who went above any expectations to provide a fun relaxed experience. Extensive wine list. Great bar for just a beverage and a light meal to the full fine dining experience. I do travel a lot but will still drive 90 miles to go the Sea Blue.

    Picked SeaBlue as the place for dinner to celebrate our 35th Anniversary. Not crowded on a Tuesday night in October. Service was excellent and the meal was even better. Gifts of the Sea is a specialty and it was awesome. My wife had a steak that was done to perfection. Overall a very good dinner and excellent service (Thanks Jason!). Would recommend for special occasion due to prices ($$$$).

    As usual the food and service were excellent, one of the best rib-eye steaks I've eaten. This as I've previously reviewed is not a tourist-type restaurant (unless foodies), nor a place for a golfing group who are looking for steak and potatoes on a boy's night out. You don't have to eat a large meal as the appetizers and salads make great small plate dinner.

    Ken, Tracy, Jason and the rest of the SeaBlue team never disappoint - whether we stop in for lunch or a relaxing dinner. We enjoy this place so much we often drive 13 hours from Tennessee on our long weekends just to dine here on a Saturday evening - the food, wine and company are exceptional. Thanks for another fantastic experience. We are glad we tried the tasting menu last weekend - Ken's duck was phenomenal! We cannot wait to return in November.

    My wife and I had never been to SeaBlue before and we were celebrating our anniversary so I figured we'd try it. The restaurant is small and while that's good for a romantic dining experience, the problem is that we had a table of 8 next to us and with the small size of the room that was not conducive to romantic. The food was outstanding. My wife had a swordfish special and I had a mixed seafood over risotto. Portions could have been a larger and prices were high for just an every day place. This is better to celebrate a special occasion. To give an example: Surf and Turf with veggies will run about $70.00. One cool thing is an enormous wine list. They actually have a French wine that was $11,000/bottle. We passed.

    Located in a small strip mall on Rt. 17 in North Myrtle Beach. Very friendly staff and very energetic atmosphere, many locals m to patronize this place, a good sign. The waitstaff (Jason) was knowledgeable, friendly, funny and right on target with his suggestions. I had the shrimp & grits, she had the crab cakes. Both were very good and large portions. If you're on a tight budget you could probably split an entree and be very satisfied.

    Don't judge a book by its cover. This applies to SeaBlue. From the parking lot, you see a row of stores and it's in a shopping center. But once you're inside, the ambiance changes and you're in a great spot for dining and wine. Excellent service, a very robust and special wine selection, and the food is not only delicious, but unique and brought in from all over the country. The service was top notch, the owner came out to discuss wine options, and the food was some of the best we've ever had. It truly is a hidden gem in Myrtle Beach.

    Pros: extensive wine list, pretty decor, unique and rare menu items like wagyu beef, jamon iberico ham, escargot, foie gras, etc.. Very rare and expensive items. Cons: not a great value for the fine dining experience. My wife and I are foodies from Pittsburgh and we feel there are better fine dining restaurants with more delectable menu items and preparations for equal or less money in our area such as Monterey fish grotto, off the hook, meat and potatoes, Sonoma grille. Overall, good jot great for the investment.

    From the great wine list to the selection of food, everything was great. I had a lobster special which was out of this world for $32, not bad price. My husband had the grouper but I think he wished he ordered the lobster. The wine we chose was out of stock so the owner gave us a more expensive wine for the same price as the one we chose. A $14 savings. We never expected that and it was a really nice jester.

    This is the second time we've dined at Sea Blue. This time, we brought friends who we had told about our prior experience. Once again, everythinng was absolutely perfect. The waiter was attentive and made wine recommendations that were perfect for each course. The food was so much better than any other restaurant that it's hard to find the superlatives. Flavorful, eye-opening, delicioius, sumptuous...We all knew to come hungry and we made the meal our evening's entertainment. The scalloped potatoes are out of this world and the filet mignon falls into the 'best steak ever' realm. Such a great restaurant and top notch in every category. Will dine there again.

    We celebrated our 3 year anniversary at Seablue Restaurant & Wine Bar. It was by far the best dining experience we have ever had. I have worked in the industry for over 20 years, and have pretty high expectations! Our server Eric was very knowledgeable about the menu, and when we were about to leave the owner/chef came over to check on our experience. We had nothing bad to say. My husband had the surf & turf, I had the filet & crab cake. The food was outstanding. Everything was cooked to perfection. My only complaint would be that this restaurant is over 600 miles away from where we live. Lucky for us we love myrtle beach and can not wait to come back to celebrate another anniversary at Seablue Restaurant & Wine Bar

    This place is a high end classy place with great décor and outside dining space if you choose. The chef heard me asking the waiter some questions and brought over a piece of beef to explain the different between a center cut filet mignon and chateaubriand. Prices are high, but less than some other high end places in town for the same menu items.

    Couldn't find many pictures online so wasn't sure what I was walking into. Was impressed with the style and cleanliness of the place. i celebrated an anniversary dinner there and service was amazing. Extremely well trained and professional waiter with knowledge on the menu and how the food is prepared. Wine was of good selection and great whiskey selection too. For walking into the place a little blind I was drawn in at first sight. tucked in a good spot in the neighborhood, great ambience and romantic with dim blue lighting and soft music, delicious sea food and appetizers. Didn't have space for dessert but I'm sure it would not have been disappointing.

    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.
