    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!

    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.

    Read reviews. Decided to give it a try. Did not live up to the hype. I ordered flounder special. Dry and overdone. Disappointing give the locale! My husband ordered the duck. Waiter never asked about doneness - which means in a better restaurant, that duck will arrive medium rare - and the (expensive) dish was well done. Strike two. Thankfully, the blueberry ice cream was outstanding.

    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.

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 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
