I travel the world and I would come back to the Library anytime. It was the best meal I have had in 2 years!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was impeccable.The service was impeccable. The food was outstanding. Meeting the owner who was very gracious was very much appreciated.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGem of Myrtle Beach!!We ate at the Library for my birthday dinner last week. The Chef/Owner met us at the door, and was very accommodating when we were running a little late for our reservation. The restaurant itself was very charming. The decor complimented the theme without being too cheesy. There weren't many guests that night so it was very quiet, but this allowed us to feel a bit more special. The food was amazing!! Coming from the Midwest, I was very much looking forward to some fresh seafood, and the Halibut did not disappoint. The Chef even accommodated the teenager in our group who only wanted chicken fingers (an extreme waste since there were so many great items on the menu). Also our server (Shane I think) was outstanding!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated out 37th anniversaryWe celebrated out 37th anniversary here. We were warmly greeted and they us and gave us a table we had hoped for. Shannon (waiter), and the food, were spectacular. The steak Diane prepared tableside I'd recommend to anyone. No rush here. They said to make our selves at ease and enjoy the event. We dropped $300 including tip, and spent every bit of 3 hours. Worth every cent!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe cocktails, appetizersThe cocktails, appetizers & table-side made Caesar salad were outstanding! The main course that are chicken based are typical french chicken dishes and nothing special. The deserts sounded great, but we were too full. The staff and service was unforgettable!!! So prompt to service and polite. Very romantic!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great experienceWe had a great experience on 4/13/13. Shane was our waiter and he provided outstanding service. The food was great and prepared exactly as we wanted. Bread was prepared on demand which meant it was hot and fresh when it came to the table. Must say this is the first time we have experienced this. A really nice touch. For those who have been hesitant to give The Library a try; I say don`t judge a book by its cover. Go inside. You will be pleasantly surprised.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the bestAs always, nothing short of outstanding! Owner Shad continues to shine, operating the finest dining establishment around.

We had a party of 9 and everything about our visit was "top shelf." The Staff (owner Shad and our waiter, Danny) are always incredibly attentive and accommodating. The service and food are second to none, probably the finest restaurant in the State of South Carolina. A wine list fit for the most discriminating connoisseur.

Don't think I would bring children.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMnice restaurant, excellent serviceFood was very good. Very small restaurant with an unique, but quaint decor. They take service very seriously there and it showed. Enough good things cannot about the excellence of the service.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous experience with allFabulous experience with all the right touches. Loved the fun of the back lit bar menu...added a contemporary flare to the more traditional and fine dining atmosphere. Excellent service with several Table side options for cesear salad, 3 entrees and several desserts. Learned a thing or two along the way from an informative owner and server but not intrusive. On the higher end of cost for beach dining but well worth it if you enjoy nice service, good food and a relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend for a quiet evening, pampered service and delicious flavors if you have some deep pockets.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter 20 years of ignoringAfter 20 years of ignoring The Library, we've been there three times in as many months. If you are looki mg for a gourmet evening out, great food without the pretentiousness that usually goes with it, this is the spot.1/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than twenty years agoMore than twenty years ago we made our first visit to The Library. It was great then; it is even better now under new ownership. You won't be attended like this, or have a better meal any other place on the East Coast between New York and Miami. When you go there get something table side; whether it is the Caesar salad or Steak au Poivre...incredible!1/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeach BonusQuaint, formal setting well appointed. Arrived on a slow night, received immediate and personal service. Good menu, ample variety with what proved to be sincerely continental preparations. Most impressive wine list. Chose the evening's specials. Beef tip and shrimp appetizer - very moist, tender and flavorful tip with two large sauted shrimp, fresh, to remain tender. Plenty for 2. Table side Caesar salad was quite good if not entertaining. A mellow dressing, a great complex of flavors. Homemade croutons were crunchy but not tough or hard. NY Strip and Halibut topped with an interesting crab and champagne cream sauce; both quite good. Hose vegetable were interesting and flavorful. Chocolate pecan pie provided a great ending.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
