Really great meal, with attentive service. Very friendly and approachable atmosphere with excellent quality food. The scallops were perfect and my wife’s filet was just how she liked. A little pricy but worth it.

We loved Aspen Grille! We decided to try it on a whim and we were very happy. The food was amazing and our waiter was very friendly and informative as well as attentive. We will definitely go back to Aspen Grille again in the near future.

My wife and I ate here for our anniversary when we were on vacation in Myrtle Beach, nice ambience, great service, and the food was very good. The owners even left a hand written happy anniversary card on our table when we arrived. My wife is gluten free and there were many choices for her to select from. Great restaurant, I highly recommend it!

We went there or our 21st wedding anniversary and could not imagine picking a better place. The service was friendly, professional and paced perfectly. Food was priced at about what you would expect in a quality restaurant like this. Wine by the glass was even cheaper than I had expected. I think we now can safely say that we have found our favorite restaurant in the Myrtle Beach area.

Very disappointed, my husband had steak tips for appetizer, he said “I wouldn’t give this to a dog”! He got his favorite dish, short ribs, and spit most of it out, as it was mostly grizzel! I got the escargot, no taste at all!
I ordered my favorite dish, shrimp and grits for dinner, it was tasty, but the grits had the consistency of water and the whole dish was in a bed of liquid??? Our waitress did not put my husbands appetizer on the bill, we did not ask her to deduct it, but she could see he was not happy! We gave her 20% as the service was good but the food was not! 🙈 Also, we found it strange they had a lovely man playing the keyboard, but they placed a table of 6 right in front of him, he even said to the table if he is too loud let him know. They could have put these people any place in the restaurant, why put them 2 feet in front of the entertainment ! There was a separate room they could have put 2 four tops together and the guests with there 3 young boys, (the parents would have been much happier) would have been out of the way from the entertainment. Nevertheless, the only reason we would go back, is to have a drink & listen to the music! This is not a place for a foodies!!!

By luck, my husband and I ended up at this restaurant for a rare date night. I cannot say enough good things about it. The food was amazing. It stands head and shoulders above the other Myrtle Beach restaurants we tried. It would fit in quite nicely in the ultra-competitive food scene in DC, where we live. A nice touch rarely found in DC, though, was the live music. She had a beautiful voice, sang a nice variety of songs, and the sound level was just right so that we could still carry on a conversation. We had the crab stuffed flounder and the scallops and really enjoyed them. We will definitely be back!

We have been to the Aspen Grille many times. This is one of the first times I wasn’t really impressed with the food. Two of us ordered the grouper and one ordered the mahi-mahi and it seemed like it did not have much flavor. The duck and scallops were both fantastic however. Our server did a great job as well. Other than that..we love the Aspen Grill.

As always, excellent. The chef is so accommodating with changing up items and also with making almost the entire menu gluten free if requested. Also, as always, great service. Brynn was there when we needed her, but never intrusive. Well done!

Aspen Grill is consistently good and both land and sea options are great. Grouper is my favorite but the handcut steaks are great too. The service is always top notch. One of Myrtle Beach's best!

Without a doubt this is our Myrtle Beach favorite restaurant. We enjoy it so much we usually cancel reservations at other restaurants so we can eat here a second time during our stay. The food and service are exceptional, subsitutions are no problem. Warn goat cheese bruschetta, any of the risotto sides and the blueberry bread pudding are must haves. While all the main courses are great, Do Not pass up the hog’s head snapper if it's available - best fish ever!

This was our first time at Aspen Grille. We had a nice meal. The Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer was delicious. The bread with the specialty salts was very good and different. The cocktails and our meals were very good, however I think they were a little bit overpriced ($12 for a martini, $30 for Shrimp and Grits). Dessert was good, but also a little pricey. The service was ok, although the waiter (who told us he was fairly new there) was a bit too attentive and we felt a little rushed. When you're out dining on a special occasion (our anniversary, which they knew about, but did not acknowledge) you want a nice leisurely meal so you have a chance to talk and enjoy each other's company. You don't each course immediately followed by the next course. We were in and out of there in less than an hour. All in all, it wasn't a bad experience, but it was a little disappointing.

Rack of Lamb, was ordered to be cooked to medium. Rack came out raw and I eat most meat medium rare and this was absurd.
Sent it back and blew my mind, they microwaved it. Yes microwaved the most expensive entree on the menu.

I'm not paying 50 dollars for something to be microwaved. What a shame.

FYI the Mahi Mahi, ordered by 4 people at our table tasted nothing like Mahi. It was tilapia guarenteed.

Bren was our waitress and she was AMAZING! She was kind, patient & she knew the menu. From the time we sat down until the time she said her goodbye to us she was truly phenomenal. We could tell we were dining with someone who really wanted us to have a breathtaking experience and we did! Thank you Brien; we'll be back because of the service & the awesome food. The grits & roasted potatoes were good.

Once again, Aspen Grille delivers! We have come to Aspen Grille to celebrate our anniversary for the past three years. Every year it seems to get even better. This year we arrived to a handwritten anniversary note at our table. Our servers were phenomenal and all their recommendations perfect! The food was spectacular! Won’t celebrate another anniversary without Aspen!

A true 5* dining experience. The appetizers are at the top of any list - fried green tomatoes were without equal and the goat cheese crostinis were fabulous. The lobster bisque of rich and creamy and paired great with the warm, soft table bread.

We had the market daily fish special - which was a grilled grouper - it was very tasty. Topped it off with blueberry bread pudding which was another home run.

You will love this place.
