All the food was excellent but the cauliflower was to die for. We had six tapas dishes and all were fun and creative and really good. Our server was outstanding.

Food was excellent, and the waiter was not seen, yet kept all the glasses full, re folded napkins, and replaced silverware with every course.

Perfect place if you want to treat yourself (and your significant other) a gourmet dinner and try local cuisine with an international twist. The meat was really good, but also the fish/seafood options seemed very inviting.

What a lovely meal! We enjoyed our visit to Aspen Grille and were delighted to find a handwritten card on our table upon arrival wishing my husband and me a happy anniversary. Our server, Will, was excellent --- friendly, kind and very knowledgeable about the menu. Everything was outstanding!

This was our third time here and we came with our friends (party of 4) and have enjoyed the upscale dining when we visit Myrtle Beach. Food was good and the escargot is excellent as wellas the ceasar salad and fried oyster. There was a little confusion about the topper of Lobster for the beef 3 of us ordered. We thought we were ordering the topping but instead got it as an addition to the entree which was almost twice the price. Unfortuantely the lobster was overcooked but we opted not to complain. The green beens that came with my entree would have been much better had they not been slightly overcooked. Our waiter was young and I think probably new so he had forgotten to order one of our side dishes but we really didn't need it as there was planty of food.
My sirloin was not as flavorful or as tender as expected but the filets were excellent and cooked to perfection. There seems to be a little inconsistency sometimes as the last time we went our creme brulee was undercooked and soupy and the glaze on top was burnt so we did have to sent this back as it was inedible but taken off our bill.
We will try again one more time as we do like the ambience but although the food overall is good, for the price paid it should be excellent in every area.

This was the second time we have been to Aspen Grille - and it was even better than the first time. We were with friends and all parties thought it one of the best meals they've had in Myrtle Beach. I had the red drum special with fingerling potatoes and beans and it was fabulous. My wife had chicken and got two meals out of it. We love this restaurant and will be back!

This was our 2nd visit to Aspen Grill. My son in law ordered a steak - they are not inexpensive. He ordered it medium. When it arrived it was medium well to well in some spots. He let our server know and he said he would correct it. Within two minutes a steak was brought to him BUT it was the same steak he has sent back. A woman (one of the owners or manager) brought the steak back and said "the chef cut into the steak and said it IS medium". What????? We could not believe this happened. My son in law was upset but kept the steak for lack of not knowing what else to do. In hindsight I wish we had just sent it back and talked to a manager or owner about this. It is my feeling that no matter what the customer has to be right. A new steak should have been prepared at a temperature that was satisfactory to the customer. Not sure I can talk my family into going back here and it's a shame since our food was good. Customer service is everything!!!!!

This was our 2nd visit to Aspen Grille in less than a month. The food has been consistently top-notch and the atmosphere equally perfect. This time, we took our 2 best friends who just got married and they absolutely loved it! We all ordered different entrees and shared, and we were all impressed with each dish. We (my wife and I and our 2 friends I'm sure) will be making the Aspen Grille a staple dinner stop every time we visit Myrtle Beach.

This so called fine dining restaurant starting and ending with our waiter snobby Dave. Ordered the tempura lobster bites @$16 for an appetizer - four hush puppyish looking things come out - okay nice and crispy outside but a quarter inch thick blob of uncooked breading all around inside -it took some dissecting to find the pop corn sized morsel in each one. When I finished my plate was a mess of picked apart breading all snobo Dave wanted to know was I through eating. Next disaster up pan seared scallops with fried spinach and a regular of okra corn and tomato. First scallop ok cooked, second scallop not so cooked, third scallop tasting undercooked/raw, fourth scallop definitely raw as was the fifth scallop. The fried spinach tasted as if it was slathered with oil. When Dave comes over same question are you finished eating, he really needs to work on his conversational vocabulary. I tell him those scallops were not cooked, he picks up the plate and walks away. When he brings the check he notes I got a price adjustment only charged for three scallops. Gee thanks but what if I was still hungry. The special occasion request was ignored. Take this one off the list.

Service was horrible. Live music in the bar which carried over into the dining room. Waiter didn’t want to be bothered waiting on our table. Scallops were served raw and came with wrong risotto. Overall made us feel very unwelcome being there.

Decided to have dinner for my birthday at Aspen Grille while vacationing in Mryle Beach after reading reviews on line, it did not disappoint. My boyfriend and I throughly enjoyed our dinner, the Fried Green Tomatoes were amazing along with the rest of our dinner, but I have to admit the dessert stole the evening, The Flourless Chocolate Cake and Key Lime Pie, we are still talking about them.

The shrimp and grits weren’t good. I had to send them back. The Flounder was delicious but the plate was over done. A simple fish like that needed light touches such as a fresh tomato salad or a sweet corn relish. The dessert and the waiter was the best part. Crab cake was also very very good. When I visit again this will be a restaurant I will avoid.
