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. Continued

  • "Best restaurant we went to in the myrtle beach area. Food was reasonably priced and delicious. Regional offerings were noteworthy in their variety and presentation. Experienced appetizers, main courses and delicious desserts plus a bottle of wine for much less than expected. Because of beach traffic from surfside nc took about 1 hour 15 to get there but so great !"

We went with friends and were so pleased the first night with the meal and service, that we returned again the next night and were equally impressed. What's more, the prices are just phenomenal considering the quality of the dining experience. Just superb."

  • "It has been over 7 years since we were last year; we made a point of returning when we knew we would be in the area. Once again, the service was excellent - waitress was very friendly and very knowledgeable of the menu items. The food was excellent - as we expected! We have been here many times over the past almost 20 years. The Parson's Table just keeps drawing us back. Every visit has turned into a special occasion! I was excited to find the Parson's Table on the OpenTable app, and I was even more excited being able to request the date and time for our special 'date night' event. it was a luxury being able to make such a request three weeks in advance!"

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at the Parson's table and would recommend it as our new favorite while in Myrtle Beach. Service was awesome food was great while prices were just right. Shecrab soup was really good. Salad was light and flavorful. I also had the pork chop special which was the perfect size and tasted great. Our server was very attentive to the entire group and the kids. He made sure to check with us on kid refills and made sure our wine glasses were not empty. The old church adds character to the place and the table we sat at was semi private. Everyone enjoyed the night and we will be going back very soon."

  • "The Parson's Table is a wonderful restaurant with outstanding food. It's my "go to" restaurant for a special night out while on vacation in Myrtle Beach. Our server was attentive and prompt. The only reason I gave the service 3 stars is because our server spent much of the evening teasing my son about asking for extra tarter sauce. The server probably thought he was being cute, but it was not."

Portions were so plentiful that only two of our party of four were able to order desserts, which were shared by all. The offer of $10 off on any bottle of wine was especially welcomed."

  • "We spent a week at the beach. We had the best meal of the week at The Parson's Table. The cornbread was so delicious. I had the baked brie and a salad. The brie was the best I ever ate. My husband had a steak. He has eaten in the best steak houses in the United States, and said that the steak was as good as he has eaten. We had a 6:30 reservation and was promptly seated. The service was great. The building was very interesting with a nice ambiance. The price was very reasonable for the food, service, and ambiance. We will definitely visit The Parson's Table again."

  • "i have been to your restaurant before but this time I brought my male friend for the first time. We loved everything about our visit. We did the early bird because we were going to the Carolina Opry at 7:00 and was sure we would have enough time but I just happened to mention it to our server, who by the way was wonderful, and she said she was glad that I told her because that would ensure her that she put our order in in enough time for us to relax and enjoy our meal. Now, that my friend, is outstanding service. We are coming back to the beach Sunday the 8th and my friend has already asked if we could dine there again. so, we will see you this week. Looking so forward to it. Faye"

The ambiance was there, the service was friendly and very professional and the meal was out of this world. The pricing was more than reasonable for the quality.

  • "Parsons Table offers an excellent dining experience without breaking the bank. The Bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer is excellent. The salad that accompanies the meal is served family style and is especially tasty. The rolls and the corn bread given to each table are delicious. My wife and daughter had the short ribs which are always spot on. I had the sesame Tuna served rare which was excellent. We are never disappointed when we have dinner at the Parsons table."

  • "Appetizers are really good (try the mussels or Brie). Great salad with bottomless bowl so no shortage there. Entrees are of good proportion - you wont leave hungry - some entrees (ex. Marsala) could use use more flavor enhancers. Steak with Mushroom side - good. Desserts were a nice way to wrap up the meal if you have room. (helps to make a reservation) "
