A hidden gem in Myrtle Beach. The food was so great the first time that we've been back 4 times in a month

Made reservations for a birthday and asked for a window seat, The hostess ignored us and led us to an interior seat without saying a word. We noticed there were window seats available and we’re finally able to be seated. Then the 20 minute wait began without service. We finally got service after I asked if there was a problem. Then I ordered a Manhattan and got plain whiskey. Then I ordered a rare prime rib and got medium well. We won’t be going back and don’t recommend you go there either, a true shame for a Hilton.

The view was spectacular. The food was very good and definitely high class. The thing preventing this restaurant from getting 5 stars is that it's white-tablecloth food and prices without the accompaning service and settings. The waitstaff is good but not amazing. The table setting could have been more plush.

The atmosphere is similar to the dining room on a cruise with similar views. I would have appreciated one extra step to that level of service and this place would have been perfect.

For 1.15 hours. Food came out correct, hot and everyone liked their respective meals.

Did not realize restaurant was located in the Hilton. Said smart casual but hardly so. Sorry dressed for dinner. Minimal wine list. Crab cake were okay but no sauce, etc. Stuffed flounder with crab meat and risotto was a surprise - very good. Had great view of beach. If you want reasonable food with good view and very casual atmosphere, would be good choice.

we enjoyed our meal and the vegetarian dish they made for us. went back the next night and we could get in even though the place was largely empty. One group of 21 came in ahead of us and overwhelmed them I guess. they weren’t staffed up for more.

From the beginning to the end of our delicious dinner, George treated us like royalty! A special table for my friend, whose birthday it was, all the butter and ice we needed...he anticipated our every need! The soup was fabulous, the bread fresh and yummy and our steaks and fish were cooked to perfection! George even included a sparkler on the complimentary birthday cake! It’s always delightful!!

We were the first people (4) to arrive. The menu was not was I had seen online. Disappointed. We were celebrating my friends anniversary and my birthday. I had to send back my scallops dish twice. Food was cold . First time all they did was heat up my dish. Second time the sauce was still congealed. Third time it came out perfect. Dish was delicious. My husbands filet was a choice cut not a prime cut. You should up the price so that the filet would be delicious instead of flavorless. Views were beautiful. I have stayed and eaten many times at the Hilton and never was disappointed. NJ, CO. NY, CA, Cavallari Hilton, Rome Italy, etc. The end of the meal was delightful when they served us dessert with sparklers. Note: They did not charge me for my scallop dish or our dessert and coffee. The staff was wonderful and the surroundings were like a NY lobby and restaurant.

Very good food with a beautiful ocean view. They do not have a huge menu per se but what they offer are great choices. There is something for everyone. I must say that even better than the food is the service. If you are fortunate enough to get George as your server you will feel so welcome. He takes care of his tables like no server I have ever known. We are from out of town and when we dine there he remembers everything about us. The best ever!!!

We had the most beautiful time! It was Valentine’s Night and there were flowers and hearts on the table and heart balloons everywhere...George treated us like rock stars and suggested a delicious wine! George creates magic every time! Their Valentine special was lobster tail and filet with delicious mashed potatoes and broccolini...we love it there..DONNA at the front hostess station treats us like family every time! Super place..and it’s oceanfront..

Excellent food and beautiful views of the ocean at sunset. I had the loaded baked potato soup and the filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. Both were outstanding. My husband had the flounder with crab meat stuffing, risotto and asparagus. He loved it. We shared the Kahlua Choc. truffle cheesecake for dessert, yum! It was a great early Valentine's dinner. The service was very good. Our server, Jenny, was so nice and recommended dishes to try. We enjoyed talking with her.

Very good experience here. Come with an empty stomach as portions are very substantial. We couldn't even eat dessert. The service was great. She was great and kept our waters full, which is a task considering that my husband is a fish. The catch of the day was amazing.

Disappointed with food. Cost much too high for what you get. I had scallops which was served over a creamed kind of corn, $28.00. Appetizer Crab cakes all breading, not much crab $14.00. My husband had flounder stuffed with crab stuffing, stuffing not so good, alot of green peppers, served with green beans $25.00. The online menu was not what was presented when we got there. Online menu mentions a pasta dish with seafood, also a bore belly dish. No pasta on menu at all. No ambiance, it was dark, 6pm reservations, could not see anything from windows.
