A word from The Parson's Table
Not only can you get a juicy roast prime rib at The Parson"s Table, but you can eat it inside a church, too. The location remains very much the same structure that it was in 1885, when Little River Methodist Church was built. The cherished establishment first opened its church doors as a restaurant in the late 1970's and has been serving exquisite American steakhouse fare ever since. The restaurant's decor is positively Southern-charm antique, complete with dark wooden walls, stained glass windows and an original Tiffany glass lamp in the main dining room. An award winning wine list graces The Parson's Table as well as an outstanding fresh seafood selection.

    We learned of this from a fellow golfer last year but didn't have time to visit. This year, we remembered to give it a try. We liked the bar as you enter so you can have a drink while you peruse the menu. Nice seating area and love that they accept reservations. This meal was exceptional. Our group didn't want to leave! It was unbelievable and quite a surprise as it seems to be advertised only by word of mouth. Everyone had something different and there were no complaints. I had one of the chicken specials with shrimp. The taste was outstanding and two culinary sorts at our table were equally impressed. We will be sure to share the news and visit next year. Also, Patty was our server and she was very efficient.

    Birthday Dinner for my wife was absolutely great. My wife is GF and our server understood and made several trips to the kitchen to find out if certain menu items were available GF. Dinner was fabulous from the champagne to the dessert. The Parson's Table will be tops on my list for every trip to the area and we intend to return often. Thanks for a memorable evening and meal.

    This visit was our fourth to the Parson's Table. We have visited twice with groups of 8 and twice with my wife. Each time the food has been excellent, the service outstanding. We will make many more visits here in the future, and recommend it highly for a fun casual dining experience.

    This was our third time dining at the Parson's Table. We have yet to be disappointed. Food is always great and service outstanding. We like that it is unique and offers a good setting for visiting with friends and family. We always recommend this restaurant to those visiting Little River or surrounding areas of North Myrtle Beach.

    We had The Parson's Table recommended to us by a friend. The reviews were very good. Very cool restaurant in an old church...atmosphere was great. Our waiter greeted us as soon as we were seated. He did a great job all evening. Unfortunately, it was downhill from there. It took us over an hour to be served our main course from the time we were seated. We were on vacation...no hurry...no problem. My wife ordered the swordfish and it was good. I ordered the broiled seafood platter and it wasn't very good. The crabcake was good. Everything else either didn't have much flavor or tasted like it wasn't fresh. I know The Parson's Table has a great reputation and we probably just caught them on a bad night, but we were disappointed.

    As a Local in Myrtle Beach it's hard to find a place to leave the tourists behind but this is it. Wonderful menu reasonably priced. Excellent service from Mark. We have had him as our server twice and plan to request him each and every time from now on. His recommendations were spot on. Also it was my husband's birthday and he assisted me in making it special dinner.

    The Parson's Table offers a unique setting with a quality wine list. Everything was great until the food arrived. The lamb chops were thin, oddly seasoned, and covered with a brown sauce that tasted like a mixture of coffee and Worcestershire sauce. Two other members of our party ordered the "fresh" local flounder topped with lump crab. They flounder was watery (as if it had been frozen) and the crab tasteless (as if it were pasteurized). All of the food was overly salted and highly seasoned. The table service was polite and efficient. However, the kitchen service is obviously in need of help! This was our second and last visit at the Parson's Table.

    The service was amazing. We were very satisfied with the wait time and courteous staff members. It was very loud however due to the people sitting around us. If it was a different crowd the atmosphere would have been more pleasant. I ordered the beef ribs and there was hardly any meat and 90% fat. I was disappointed with it but, I would like to go back and try other dishes.

    I ordered crab cakes, not what I expected thought they would be made with jumbo lump crab meat. It was more like minced crab meat and a little to much filler for my taste. The fingerling potatoes were to salty. We also had fried green tomatoes for an app and they were very good a couple more on the plate would have been nice.

    Great martini before dinner and the food is more than fantastic. So nice to go to a restaurant that you can talk and hear what the person across the table is saying. Add to that a staff that is friendly and knows how to serve a table properly. This was our second trip to the restaurant but will not be our last. Thank you for a fantastic evening to all at the restaurant from the chief to the rest of the staff.

    I read many positive reviews before recommending this place to my spouse on our vacation in Myrtle Beach. But, as he commented afterwards, "what did from people vacationing at the beach?" Our food was drowned in classically heavy, creamy French sauces. Waiter was superficially friendly but not attentive. Decor was gimmicky. Ambience was the most attractive element of our dining experience. Good wine list.

    My wife and I are visiting Myrtle Beach from Ottawa, Canada. We both found the food, service and general ambiance of the Parson's Table top notch in every respect. In fact it was one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at anywhere. Secondly the prices were very reasonable taking into consideration the quality of the restaurant. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to have a special dining experience.

    Service was so-so. Prices and selection were good. We ordered Fried Green Tomatoes as an appetizer and they were burnt, cold and lacked taste. The salad was OUTSTANDING. Entries were good. Deserts were OUTSTANDING. Overall, the place is very noisy and the food is just OK. Maybe we just hit it on a bad day... Who knows....
