Excellent dining experience. Food was delicious with quality ingredients. Attentive wait staff. Interesting tidbit with variety of salts provided to season foods to individual preferences. I have never experienced that - a nice touch.

Having eaten at Aspen Grille numerous times, usually selecting a seafood entree, I was a bit disappointed with my chicken entree selection this time around, as I found the chicken quite tough. Nevertheless, presentation was excellent and I look forward to returning for some fabulous seafood and spinach that literally melts in my mouth!

Our first time here. Food was delicious. The crab cake appetizer was probably the best I’ve had in a long time - wasn’t spicy and full of breading like most; it was just packed with crab meat and flavor. The strip steak was very good, cooked perfectly to medium rare. Would definitely come back.

The noise level was low with a background of soft music.

We are locals and are never disappointed.

 (Greensboro)·Dined on December 30, 2017

Nice restaurant but a very special birthday celebration was dampened by a very unenthusiastic server. The hostess was very nice and wished my friend a Happy Birthday. The server never did, talked in a monotone voice, I don't think she ever even smiled. The only time she pepped up was when it was time to pay and we guessed she thought she needed to in order to get a tip. I'm still upset with myself for leaving her a generous tip. She didn't deserve it. I probably won't visit this restaurant again because of this. Too pricey to have an unappreciative server!

This was our first time here after coming down to Meryl Beach for over 10 years. When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly hostess staff and immediately brought to our table. Our server Dee was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely friendly and offered good suggestions and based on that we had the specials for the evening. The cocktails and wine also offered a nice selection. The place was decorated really nice for the Holidays. Overall our experience here was very positive. The menu is on the higher side of price but well worth the food and service. This made for an exceptional evening. We will be back again.

My husbands birthday. We had surf & turf which was wonderful. I had fried green tomatoes appetizer and my husband had oysters. Both excellent. For dessert we had blueberry bread pudding & 10 layer cake. Needless to say, we had leftovers to take home. Highly recommend. They had live music. We love dining here. Staff is wonderful. Our waiter was Derek and he was great.

The entire evening was very enjoyable and I would return here for a special dinner anytime in Myrtle Beach. First class venue!

A creative take on American/Southern cooking that has always made me a happy visitor. Bartenders Scully and Alan are way above professional grade. Genuinely friendly, quick to assist and spot on with the mixes. The food is always fresh, a little surprising in a very good way and served in portions that often leave you some to take home. Awesome desserts too!

The Aspen Grille never fails to achieve the best possible experience. The food is usually local and always fresh. The combination of tastes exceeds my expectations every time. Not sure how it can possibly get better but it does. Highly recommend the scallop dish over mushroom risotto with fried spinach. Not sure how they get the delicate crunch on that spinach, but the flavors are so special. The staff is friendly and the service is excellent. Can’t brag enough about this place.

We celebrated our anniversary here and one of the OWNERS had a handwritten ‘Happy Anniversay Card’ at our table with congratulations and thanking us for coming to Aspen Grille for our anniversary! Our very kind server brought our bread and I knew when I tasted that bread, we had made a good choice (I am very picky about bread). My husband loves French Onion Soup (which he is very picky about-he gave it a 10!!). For his entree he had the Shrimp and Grits which I also tried and it was the BEST either of us have ever eaten- a perfect brown gravy is hard to do but the chef nailed it to perfection. i had the Scallops with fried spinach and mushroom risotto—out of this world!!! You are going to be amazed how tender the scallops are plus you will be pleasantly surprised as the fried spinach literally melts in your mouth. I had rose with my meal and I thought it went very well with the scallops. IF you have room, the French flourless chocolate cake is a good choice.
Our new favorite place in Myrtle Beach—what a TALENTED chef!!!

Seared scallops with fried spinach: If you like scallops and are in Myrtle Beach you must eat here. Probably the best scallops I have ever eaten (and I have been eating scallops at least 50 years)! I almost didn't order because they are a bit pricey ($36), but so glad I did.

Staff was so wonderful and made my boyfriend's 30th birthday special! Food was really good and it wasn't overly busy, so that was nice. They had a personal card for him, and I requested glasses of champagne, which were ready upon our arrival. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and attentive but not overbearing. Lamb was very good and he enjoyed the strip. We will definitely be back.

I never write reviews but my husband and I went here for our anniversary and it exceeded our expectations. We had a hard time deciding on what to order because everything on the menu sounded great. As an appetizer, we ordered the special lobster bites and salads with their homemade caesar dressing and some kind of vinaigrette that had an amazing flavor. When you're wowed by a salad, you know the food has to be great. I decided on the seared duck breast and my husband got the special hog nose snapper; both entree's were delicious. In addition to the incredible food and our very attentive waiter, the ambiance far exceeded my expectations. They had a singer with an amazing voice. She sang a variety of songs from different genres but all with a jazzy flare. Since it was our anniversary, my husband asked if she took requests and luckily she did. She sang our wedding song, Alicia Key "If I ain't got You"; despite it being her first time singing it, she was spectacular! I would highly recommend this place for a special occasion or date night. Unfortunately, we don't live in the area but next time we're in MB, we'll go back!
