Diner Reviews
  • "The greatest experience ever from the greeting upon entry, to the atmosphere, drinks, notable craft beers :) and to die for food! Thanks Danny and all for a wonderful experience! See ya Friday!"

  • "We had a very nice dinner here. The service is 5 star. The table side Cesar Salad is worth making a trip for by itself. I had a filet and lobster entree and my wife had a salmon dish and both were exquisite."

  • "Everything about 'The Library Restaurant' was special, from the freindly reception when we walked in the door to when our waitor held the door offering us mints on our way out. The drinks were delicous, especially the blue smurfs that my children had. The house salad was refreshing and the cucmber doira soup was crisp and fresh. Everyone loved the pasta and seafood we had for our main course as well. Throughout the entire meal, the service was impecable, freindly and attentive without being overbearing. My only knock would be a lack of a child's menu or portion sizing, because even after splitting a pasta dish between 2 of them, we stil had a lot leftover. Overall, this restaurant is a real neighborhood gem."

  • "Food was good. Service was excellent. Table side Caesar salad was fun to watch and delicious. Total bill was on the high side. Did not appreciate upsell of vegetables table side upon delivery of main course. Those should be included."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Food was unbelievable, service was great and very polite. Their wine list is extensive along with a great craft beer selection. This is the kind of experience you want with the expense. Would definitely go here again and recommend it to others."

  • "My husband took me for my Birthday. It is a wonderful restaurant, it is French food, excellent wine choices and excellent food. Service is so great, they are very attentive, you will want for nothing the entire night. I highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Excellent place to go for a special occasion, I recommend only adults. Food and service were excellent, the Library Mushrooms and Steak Diane were some of the best restaurant food I have had. The table side prep for Caesar, Steak Diane and Bananas Foster added to the experience. Danny was our waiter and he was great. Definitely a must for a wonderful date night."

  • "the food was overpriced...the salad that came with the entree was ok but nothing else was served with the entrees. my husband ordered the duck...the waiter asked if he wanted orange or cherry sauce. my husband replied that it only stated orange on the menu and the waiter said, i know but there is cherry available. so my husband said he would take the cherry. well, we get our bill and there was an up charge for the cherry sauce! and we were already over paying for the duck! will not return...unless they lower their prices and revamp the menu, lol"

  • "The experience at the library was unique, quite mixed to the extreme. When first walking in, the thing that hit me first ( or my nose, I should say) was the smell! The carpet MUST go! There is no question the carpet is as old as the restaurant, and smells strong of mold and must! We almost didn't stay, and I was cautious at this point about how the food might be. So , we tried the lightly spicy she-crab bisque. .. to my pleasant surprise, it was quite tasty, perfect consistency, however, an odd hint of rosemary flavor, which I didn't love. So, we proceeded with more appetizers, which were outstanding:ultra tender beef carpaccio and delicate tasty blue lump crab meat! We went on to have 2 delicious meals! I'll stop now, I'm out of room"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Split a delicious lump crab cocktail followed by a fine salad with home made dressing and croutons. Main dishes were specials- Scottish salmon and black grouper were both excellent. No room for desert. Waiter Danny is an old pro. While pricey the food quality and preparation was outstanding in this old school continental style restaurant."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "From first being greeted at the door, till leaving extremely satisfied, a very special place. Food and service was 1st class. The She crab soup was rich and tasty, with an extra kick to it. I had the duck with cherry sauce, which was prepared just right. Will be returning on a regular basis."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "There is a reason to make this the last place to dine in Myrtle Beach - it out classes all the rest in consistency at every level. Don't pass on the carrots. Try the veal and shrimp or steak diane (my personal favorites) and the champagne infused blueberry homemade ice cream."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Highly recommend. Great food, service and atmosphere. We had a reservation and arrived early. They sat us right flown and started our service with no issue! We will make this a regular stop. Food was outstanding. A little on the pricey dude but well worth."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We had two great meals there. My wife had veal and I had the sweetbreads. My first time for those and they were delicious! It was a quiet Monday night with just a few other patrons. We were welcomed by the owner/chef and treated well. I would certainly go there again for a special meal. It was one of the best in almost 3 weeks of travel. "
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "We have been to Per Se, The French Laundry, and the Plumed Horse. These are notable restaurants. The Library deserves an equal gold star. The food was prepared with even tones of surprise. Their menu is traditional in a way that comforts a diner to know that there are still locations striving to create fabulous tender steak in wonderful sauces, table-side. My husband had the special and found the fish fresh and cooked to perfection with a sensational sauce. The following evening we went to Aspen Grille. As much as this location was hoping with the young and trendy the food was ok. The sauces were over seasoned, there was no balance to the proportions of food served with the entree. Go to The Library you will not regret it."

  • "Excellent food and service. My husband cut his filet with a butter knife. Everything was seasoned and cooked to perfection. We've eaten at several Top Chef restaurants and this had them beat!"

  • "I have been visiting the Library on every trip to Myrtle Beach for the last eight years and every meal has been superb."

  • "What a find!!! My now, most favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach!!! Food was WONDERFUL!!! Staff and owner were DELIGHTFUL!!! Can't wait to get back to Myrtle Beach and have another great meal at The Library. Have already verbally shared info about this restaurant with friends who frequent Myrtle Beach. Do not miss this experience!"

  • "We first visited the Library 39 years ago on our first anniversary and while back in the area we returned to find the same great food/service and ambience we remembered... An outstanding restaurant that we always recommend."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The Library provided an elegant and romantic atmosphere for our dining experience. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and the wine and were accommodating for my wife's dietary needs."

  • "Cannot say enough about this restaurant. Shad the owner makes you feel welcome the moment you walk through the door. His staff is amazing. Very prompt and professional. A must for any couple wanting a nice quiet dinner."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "This was our second time to eat at the Library. Both times have been perfect. The waiter was very attentive without hovering over us. The food has to be the best in Myrtle Beach! We have been coming to the Grand Strand for 10 years now and every year we splurge one night so we have eaten at the most highest rated spots around and The Library is at the top of our list!"
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "Meeting the owner at the door, his sincere welcome was very nice. The wine list was extensive, my ginger beer mojito was incredibly flavored. Shane, our server had a great knowledge of the menu, and knew what personal service is all about. The table side made Caesar is a must have. The entrées, amazing care in preparation and presentation. The table side steak Diane fills the air with a delightful aromas. The grouper with cream sauce was A surprise of flavor. Topping a meal like this would be hard pressed but the bananas foster also made table side was the perfect desert. I would not only recommendbut urge my friends to experience The Library. "

  • "Seriously, the finest restaurant in MB. I plan on an evening of great cuisine every time I visit MB. Not recommended for anyone who wants to eat and go."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Great evening! Incredible menu with superb service. Awesome experience from the moment we were met at the door by Jen to the diverse menu well described by our knowledgable waiter Chris. First time here for a local couple that eats out every night and it was a great one!!!"
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "The restaurant was extremely dated, the atmosphere could be so much better with the "library" motif. The Caesar salad prepared table side was very good, but the Sweetbreads prepared table side were already cooked and merely thrown into the saucepan to heat. The experience was very disappointing."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "This was our second time visiting Library in the last 5 months. We started with two G&T's and wine. They make homemade tonic and it was WAY to sweet for the drinks. To eat, we had 3 orders of escargot and two orders of soup (she crab and split pea). The split pea is great. The escargot and she-crab was par. For dinner we had 2 specials-14oz. steak w/blue cheese and reduction sauce. For $40, it was not of the quality you can get elsewhere. The third dish was veal and shrimp. This was bland and we were saddened by the lack of taste and perpetration of this piece. In the end, we felt we spent way too much for the quality of what we received. For a dinner that cost the same as a car payment, you would expect something more."

  • "Always a great meal. Chad the owner and Danny our waiter are outstanding. The Old Fashions are the best at the beach and the She - Crab soup is the best we've ever had."

  • "The library was definitely one of the best restaraunts ive ever been to. The wait staff was exceptional, all of the food came out in a timely manner and was cooked to perfection. And the serving sizes werent small at all, I got the Duck L'orange and I got two decent sized leg quarters served with 3 veggies and a salad, and the steak tips appetizer was outstanding as well. I highly recommend this place to everyone."

  • "Great place for a special occasion. Service was outstanding (Chris was our waiter.) Lots of high end special touches. Definitel not your average Myrtle Beach tourist locale."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Smart people eat at the Library. The food was delicious and prepared to perfection. We both chose one of the chef's specials, grouper stuffed with lump crab and a blood orange hollandaise sauce. Our waiter, Chris, was right on time from start to finish. This is our new favorite restaurant and we'll be back. This was a great experience from beginning to end. cocktails drinks, appetizers, wine, dinner, dessert, after dinner drinks............just perfect. The best in Myrtle Beach without a doubt."

  • "We went during our vacation to Myrtle Beach and, second to jet skiing, dinner at The Library was our best memory. The very intimate setting, extreme care by the owner and waiter, and the excellent food made us wish we lived in Myrtle Beach so we could go more often. If you want a wonderful meal and an exquisite dining experience, this is the place to go."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "What an incredible dining experience. The food was 5 star, service was excellent. Quaint, quiet, and romantic. We wanted for nothing. If you want extraordinary food and have your every need catered to then is the place to dine at. We gave it 5 stars. Chuck our Server was attentive and funny."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "I chose the Library for my girl's special birthday dinner. Although we surprised the staff with an infant in a car seat, they did a great job making us feel welcome. Our waiter, Chuck even offered to hold and rock the baby while we enjoyed the food. We had a memorable dinner out."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I have been going to The Library for the past 5 years, once a year. It doesn't get better each year it just does this amazing thing called consistency. The food is always as anticipated; delicious, the service is always impeccable & Shad always has time to say hello no matter how busy. I look forward to dining here every year."

  • "French onion soup very good, salmon cooked to perfection, bananas foster delicious, wait staff very attentive. However overall we were very disappointed. Veal dish the waiter said was 'his personal favorite' was very heavily breaded, a FULL description would be better than the waiter's preference. At $36 for a small portion of salmon vegetables should be included. Not told veg a la carte until the waiter arrived with a plate of a few green beans, 2 small potatoes and some carrots. 4 green beans each for additional $8 -really! The salad was included, but was lettuce and croutons only, although the dressing was excellent. Very disappointed overall, and felt as if the restaurant was only interested in my money and not my dining satisfaction."
