I am a repeat customer for one of their dishes....scallops. There is a unique blend of flavors that can't be found elsewhere. I also love their hot coffee drinks.

On a recent off-season visit to Myrtle Beach a local friend suggested our party of 6 meet at Collector's Cafe. The ambiance is one of an urban area local restaurant that tourists don't know about. The tables are nicely spaced, so even though the restaurant was full, we felt we as though we were alone in the room. Our waitress was extremely efficient and just the right amount of friendly. The food was superb. This restauant really was a highlight of our trip. Five stars.

The prices made us expect some wows that we didn't get there with dinner for four a week ago. At 3/4 the price it might get another bump up. At 1/2 the price it would get a top rating.

Had the most wonderful experience and above and beyond service. Please find this hidden gem! The food is delicious and the homemade desserts were out of this world. I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed having dinner here. We will back for sure.

Enjoyed our meal. Ordered the fish of the day over grilled vegetables. Was very good. Also the seafood bruschetta was good. House bread serving very small. Almost non existent. Service was excellent.

The food is excellent. However. I feel $31- low 40's is really not giving the customers much of an option in price range's. The appetizers are very good but again pricing $17. & $18. There is no dinner salad and if you want one, it's under the appetizers pricing. I brought out of town company, from DC. The woman only would order 2 items from the appetizer list. Refusing to order over a $30 entree, saying it's not that she couldn't afford it, it was the principal. There should be entree's offered on the lower price spectrum. Plus, our waitstaff person's demeanor changed when we didn't order alcohol, and my friend only had the apps. The comment was, "Did you get enough?"My friend felt it was a rude. Coffee was good, cappuccino is perfect & desserts are outstanding. The artwork is a real nice feature but, For that pricing we felt it shoulda come with an ocean front view. LOL

We had a girls weekend and my pick of Resturants was the Collectors Cafe. It did not disappoint! My friend got the Filet and I got the snapper. It melted in our mouths! Perfect!! The desserts are amazing as well. Yes, the Resturant is a tad pricy but worth every penny. If you are looking for a nice evening out or want to impress a friend, this is the place to take them.

Made a reservation for our Anniversary a day and a half prior. Arrived 15mins early and was seated at the bar to wait for our table at 8pm.

Had to remind the matradee about our reservation, was promptly seated at a 6person high top table directly in front of the bathrooms and kitchen service staff door.

We asked if there was an alternative only to be offered a cocktail table near the bar.

We decided it was not worth a $45 per plate atmosphere and seating.

Found better accommodations one block north, same side of street with great service and a delicious food. We enjoyed eating dessert on the outdoor patio swings.

We choose this spot because the online marketing states it went like cream and brûlée. We wanted cream brûlée for our anniversary and they didn’t have it! Did go extra mile with hearts and glitter on table for our celebration and the food was stellar. Best tuna appetizer I’ve ever had.

Worst art ever on the walls
Caesar salad dressing was poor
The carpaccio was very good
The special, grilled grouper, was small, dry and tasteless. And the server didn't think to tell me it was a fillet. I expected a whole grilled fish.
The miso salmon was good
The black rice was too sweet
Generally overpriced for what was served

Our favorite in Myrtle beach. Great food and service. Wine by the glass not great. Should have sent mine back (never done that before). Been coming here for years. Always 5 stars. This time had 3 large parties that were loud. Before that, quiet and comfortable. Waitress ( Dakota) was terrific. Highly recommend the trout with Hoppin John. Unique and perfectly done. One of my favorite entrees anywhere! So just a "bad" night at 4 stars. Go! Get the trout!

We had reservations at 6:30 and when we arrived at 6:15, we were seated at the front entrance table. I kindly asked if we could sit anywhere but here, her answer was “all those tables are reserved.” It’s 6:15, I pointed to several other 4 top opportunities and stated we had reservations too, No luck. The first person you see and speak to at a restaurant is so important in how the evening begins, our waitress Martina made up for it though, Nice Work Martina!!!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Myrtle Beach. I started off with a very nice cocktail. My partner and I shared the seafood bruchetta which was delicious. I had the crabcake and my partner the filet. Both were excellent. We topped dinner off by sharing the tiramusu which was delicious. The only disappointing part of the meal was the lattee. Overall, I would highly recommend Collector's Cafe.
