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

Diner Reviews
  • "We have visited the Parson's table nearly every year for over 15 years or more on vactation. We noticed slight declines in recent yearsin the food and service, and after our last visit, two years ago, we probably would not have gone there again this year. Happily, we did try it once more, and the menu and food had improved dramatically. We had an excellent meal in all respects -- food, service, and wine selection -- and the Parson's Table is back on our top places to dine in the Myrtle Beach/Sunset Beach area. One thing, unfortunately, has not changed: We have yet tod be seated at our reservation time."

  • "The good was unreal! Great portion sizes and unique options. My fiancé got the duck and I got the filet. Both were outstanding. The homemade dressing for the salad was awesome!"

  • "Loved everything about the Parson's Table...atmosphere, food, drinks and service! Would definitely go back! Our parents paid for our dinner so we took advantage and got, apps, entrée and dessert. Go on Friday for $10 off bottles of wine. Wine was surprisingly not overpriced like most restaurants. Can't wait to eat there again!"

  • "I ordered the special of the day which was a cornbread encrusted Grouper. The cornbread was very thinly coated and the grouper just melted in my mouth. This may have been the best seafood dinner I've ever had!"

  • "Living in Philly with some of the best restaurants in the country, it's been quite an adventure finding good restaurants along the grand strand. Parsons table is one of the best I've found so far. Yes it's in a old church with nice ambiance but its the food that is the star here. I got excited just looking at the menus. It wasn't the same old items you find at most restaurants. We started with mussels & the tuna tar tar. The tuna was good but the mussels were outstanding. They had a special, bone in filet, which you don't find very often, even in Philly. It was cooked perfectly and taste was as good as it gets. The duck breast was another hit. Looking forward to returning to this gem in Little River."

  • "My steak was undercooked (well done should not be raw in the middle) and a bit fatty. My wife's grouper was good though."

  • "We ordered the wrong thing I guess. The history is well-told and the stain glass windows make for a unique atmosphere. The menu is diverse, as are the evening specials. Although it is likely a matter of taste, the she crab soup was not the best I've had in the Little River, North Myrtle Beach area. It tasted bland and it was darker in color than I've seen she-crab soup served before. We both ordered the locally caught pecan encrusted flounder. The chef takes the word 'encrusted' quite literally, as pecans were the only thing we could taste. After scraping some of them off, the fish was decent, but nothing great. And we love flounder! Next time I'll order something different. The table next to us loved the grouper."

  • "Prices were reasonable for a 5 star restaurant. The she crab soup was delicious as was the lamb. The short ribs were outstanding however they could have given you two instead of one. The sorbet for dessert was beyond belief.o"

  • "Charming restaurant off the beaten path in Little River. Complimentary cheese & crackers to start, a fresh salad with seconds if you want them, warm rolls and cornbread. We ordered the filet and prime rib accompanied by roasted fingerling potatoes (from a choice of 4 starches) and fresh corn and bacon. The meats were cooked and seasoned perfectly and melt-in-your-mouth tender. No room for dessert, but the banana-pineapple-praline sounded heavenly. Can't wait to go back to try the seafood. We're originally from RI where there's a wealth of excellent restaurants. The Parson's Table rivals the best of them for food and value."

  • "Love the Parson's Table. However, we wanted to linger over our appetizers and drinks and our waitress rushed us to order telling us she can manage her time in serving us and if we lingered our order could get placed behind other much larger orders. We were with friends from out of town and our idea was to have a leisurely time visiting and eating. Not very attentive."
