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.

    The food and server were excellent. The entrée seemed to take a long time to arrive, even though we had an appetizer. The place wasn't crowded that night either. Other than this the Parson's Table was a GREAT place to eat.

    This is one of the best restaurants in MB. We had the Prime Rib, Broiled Seafood platter, oysters, crab soup, creme brulee and brownie and all were outstanding. Service and food are excellent. You won't be disappointed. Even though it's located just outside MB in Little River we will definitely return.

  • SHRIMPY SHRIMP APP !
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    My wife and I chose PT as the place to dine to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We secured on line reservations on the PT website and filled in the box for special comments requesting suggestions for something romantic. When we arrived we were seated in a general dining area right next to a doorway where the wait staff travel back and forth from the kitchen. Not exactly a romantic spot to be seated. We ordered the bacon wrapped shrimp for our app which were delicious. However, at $12 we received only ( 3 ) shrimp. Not only does that come out to $4 per shrimp we had one each and had to split the third one. If the number of shrimp had been stated on the menu we would have passed,not a good value. The rest of our meal was indeed very good and were treated to a complimentary dessert. Most likely will return however, more questions will be asked before ordering.

    The online reviews were not wrong! When my girlfriend (a famously picky eater) says "that might be the best all around meal I've ever had" after eating at the Parson's Table, I knew I had picked a winner. Cheese and crackers to start the meal, salad and bread that comes with an entree, a fantastic bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer, and two fantastic entrees made this an all around perfect meal. The filet was cooked perfectly as were the short ribs. The great prices on the wine list didn't hurt either. We just got a new condo in Little River and The Parson's Table will be a go-to stop each and every time we are in the area.

    We dine at The Parson's Table each time we visit the Myrtle Beach area and have done so for many years. The restaurant is one of our very favorite restaurants anywhere. The food and service are always excellent. On this night I had the she-crab bisque and mahi mahi. The bisque was delicious and the mahi mahi the best I have ever tasted. Often mahi mahi is overcooked and dry but The Parson's Table got it perfectly. My wife had salmon which was also delicious. It seems that each time we dine at the restaurant it is more crowded than the last time. This night was no exception. Kudo's to the restaurant for seating us within several minutes of our scheduled reservation. They don't take reservations just to get the business.

    Superb food. Pleasant, very attentive service. Great value all around. We get into this area at least once a year and always make it a point to dine at the Parsons Table. The wiener schnitzel was delicious, the sirloin tips perfectly prepared and the rib eye, sumptuous. We have recommended Parsons Table to our friends and they, too have found it to be a wonderful experience.

    Enchanting says it all. The menu had so many choices it was difficult to choose. The server was very pleasant and well versed on the menu items. We will visit again when we return to Myrtle Beach in April. It was fine dining at an affordable price. The cocktail special of the day was really special.

    The Parson's Table was a great find in North Myrtle Beach. Highly recommended by friends, it didn't disappoint--a very quaint 1800's church building with very good food and service--not one of the usual "beach" type restaurants. A nice touch also was the chef who came out and made the round of tables at the end of the evening.

    There is a benefit to dining during the week and that is the undivided attention of the chef and wait staff. My wife and I each had wine by the glass that was good, fairly priced and an honest pour. We shared a wild mushroom appetizer that was amazing and enough for 4 people to share. The salad was served family style, and we added blue cheese dressing. My wife chose the petite portion of sea scallops that she loved, and I had a ribeye steak cooked to perfection, and a legitimate 16 oz.s. Everything was excellent, the waiter very attentive and the total cost very reasonable considering our choices, the appetizer and wine. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a special meal, in a pleasant surrounding. Lovely setting.

    Our server - Rich - was a delight. Quite knowledgable and attentive. Mushroom appetizer was excellent. Dinner was spotty. Members of our group all loved the shrimp and scallop in different dishes. Unfortunately, 2 of us had flounder -it seemed overcooked and was rather tastless, both straight up and pecan coated. But overall it was a nice dining experience and I would certainly return.

    Stumbled upon this restaurant in 2012. Had dinner there three times during my month's stay. Ate there four times last year during my October vacation. Tonight will be my fourth time this year. The food is excellent, and the service is good! If, by chance, they are serving the mushroom soup, don't pass up the opportunity to order. It is divine!! Unfortunately, they don't serve it often enough for me. The Parson's Table is definitely my restaurant of choice when in the area!!!

    We were disappointed. Three of us ordered the prime rib. The entire meal arrived cold. The men sent theirs back to be warmed. I ate mine cold, as I know reheating prime rib does not improve it. My sister had the rack of lamb, and said is was good. The portions were generous enough. The she crab soup was exceptional. I found the dessert menu lacking, so I opted for ice cream. My husband and I are locals. I suggested we give the place another try sometime. He nixed that idea, as there are so many other restaurants to try.

    It is one of those places you could easily miss with its unimposing exterior, but once you are inside everything changes! The building's core is from a church built in the 1800's (thus the name Parson's Table), and each of the dining rooms has stained glass windows, chandeliers and other lovely antiques from old churches around the area. This creates an almost reverent atmosphere. Our server was very cordial but not imposing. The menu is extensive including fish, fowl and beef. It is an inclusive menu with salad, starch, vegetable and homemade bread and cheese spread included with all entrees. The food is excellent: of New York or Chicago quality without the high prices! We will definitely go back anytime we are in the area.
