    We were the only customers on a Tuesday evening, yet waiter approached us every minute ten times before we ordered. Veal was extremely salty. Escargots and banana foster very good.

    The Library doesn't look like much outside, but upon entering it's a wonderful dining experience. From the friendly hostess, Jennifer, to the very knowledgeable wait staff and the excellent food and service, it was an extremely delightful evening. Upon being seated we were told the table was ours for the evening and courses were spaced appropriately so we could totally enjoy everything. I can't say enough about the very perfect food and service. We will certainly return to The Library again when visiting Myrtle Beach.

    Plan on relaxing, enjoy the service, table side cooking and an owner who makes you feel right at home. The caesar is made at the table as is the Steak Dianna which was about the best cut of meat I have ever had. The menu is limited but varied and although I was to full for dessert they looked excellent

    My wife and I travel extensively and I can honestly say that this has been the absolute best dining experience of our lives! Spend the extra money and the extra time to make this an evening destination. To properly enjoy the evening set aside at least $100 per person and 3 hours of time. One of the countless charms of this place is that they DO NOT TURN TABLES. If you make a reservation, you are reserving the table for the entire evening. The food was flawless, the waiters are exceptional and the owner/chef is one of the most talented people we have met. He has created an unparalleled gem, that in our opinion, is still undiscovered.

    We have been going to The Library for 39 years, but had not been in a while. We were pleased to discover it is still a truly special, romantic dining experience. We missed going and were so pleased to discover it is still so great. We have celebrated many anniversaries at The Library!

    The Library Restaurant was recommended to us as a great place to go to celebrate my husband's birthday. This is by far one of the best restaurants we have EVER eaten in. Aside from the service, which was impeccable, the food was fresh, well prepared and served hot. We ordered something not listed on the menu and it was prepared just for us! A service that is not the norm that is for sure. We did not have dessert, as we were so full from the appetizers and dinner we had to pass, next time I will leave room. This is for sure a must if you are looking for a restaurant with class and food and wine to die for! We will be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    Having read great reviews, we expected more. The service was excellent but the food consistently failed to live up to expectations. The "signature" caesar salad was vinegary; the steak tasteless and the duck breast tough and dry. Might have been okay if the prices were reflective of the quality but at over $250 for a three course meal we will not be returning.

    I had expected much better but I won't say I was disappointed or won't go back. I expected it to be pricey and it was but the house salad was very plain - lettuce only - and the food wasn't anything that made you say 'awesome!' but I might go back and try it once more before I make my final decision. Just not neary as good as I imagined it would be

    We think that it is the best restaurant in Myrtle Beach. We went this year to celebrate Robert's birthay. Another time, our frinds came along to celebrate their 45th years anniversery of mariage. They tought place was great. The ambiance , the food and the service is great. The crepe suzette is fantastic. Once you try it, you come back

    The Library is one of the best restaurants in Myrtle Beach. Both the service and food are impeccable. Their steaks are so tender, you can cut them with your fork! Try 'Steak Diane'. Your server will cook the steak by your table side and cook to your order. You will be treated very well and enjoy the whole dining experience.

The food is pricy but the whole experience make it well worth the money. It is a great place for special occasion to pamper you loved ones. The only thing I wish to be better is the neighborhood.
