This was our third time at Collector's Cafe and the better of the three. The first two times were just OK. I had ordered the Salmon and both times they overcooked the fish. This last time I ordered the lamb ragu and it was delicious.

Amazing as always. A neighborhood gem!! Our second home is here and Collectors is definitely one of our favorite go to spots year round!! Food is awesome, the owners and staff are personable and fantabulas!! We enjoy a night out at NYPrime every now and then, but not for steak!!! Collectors without a doubt has the best steak in town!!!

I can't believe we have missed this place since 1994. Just found it and it was fantastic. Art was fabulous. Food was wonderful. My husband said it was the best steak he has ever eaten and that is a huge compliment. However the best surprise was the dessert. Hats off to the pastry chef. Incredible. On our must list from this point forward.

Also, my daughter has celiac disease and they did an excellent job accommodating her needs!

per usual, we had a fabulous meal with friends. I "forced" myself not to order the luscious mountain trout again (instead, opted for the papardelle w. lamb ragu--LUSCIOUS!)...though hubby did. We and our our friends "cleaned our plates." Fabulous salads, too, and, per usual, we carried home desserts. Our choice is the outstanding, moist coconut cake; friends took home a chocolate choice. This is one of our 3 favorite restaurants in MYR.

I printed an Open Table gift card redeemable only at Collector's Cafe. They refused it and said they have never had one before and would not except it. This was the owners decision but the owner didn't think it was necessary to come out and speak to us directly. My wife also had something sandy in her salad. To top it off they charged a hospitality fee. Small portions and high prices. Would not recommend.

Our family has eaten at the Collectors Club before and this time was as good as always. The food is very well prepared and the service is friendly and efficient. The prices are not cheap, but the food is worth it.

We had a lovely meal and our waitress was very sweet. It was a little pricey though. I guess it is like paying for a visit to an art gallery and eating gourmet food prices. But we loved the art, so it was worth it.
Thanks for the complimentary piece of birthday cake! We all enjoyed it!

We so enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant - our best dinner of the week in Myrtle Beach. The flavours of all our food - excellent. Their drink list has some interesting martinis on it. The coconut cake is large enough to share with 3-4 people and it was outstanding. Service was also great.

We've been going to Collector's for about two decades. Their Scallop Cake appetizer is unrivaled anywhere. The rest of the menu is very good and features sea and land based foods. We enjoy viewing the numerous pieces of art hung in all public areas of the restaurant. Very good food at a reasonable price makes this restaurant a Myrtle Beach gem.

We were a group of 4 foodies visiting Myrtle Beach on a golf trip. Collector’s Cafe was a recommendation and it did not disappoint. It will be a MUST on all return trips. Food was tremendous from appetizers through desserts. We are still waiting for the plate that would disappoint. Great ambiance with paintings and sculptures throughout the entire restaurant that are for sale. Service was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you Collectors’ for a meal to remember. Looking forward to the next visit.

It was our Anniversary. When I made the reservation it asked if it was for an occasion, when we got there we had a little round table for 2 sprinkled with tiny heart confetti. The service was second to none. The food was amazing!! I would highly recommend. We are looking forward to our next trip to Myrtle Beach to come back.

This was a nice dinner ; perhaps the best we had in Myrtle beach . The ambience was nice. The waitress was knowledgeable . The wine list was adequate .
My trout - recommended by the waitress was really excellent. My spouses creole dish was very nice - perhaps a little but low on the spice but very nice indeed.
The desert menu is life changing . Save room !
We hope to go there again soon

The Collector's Cafe was a lucky find! I've been vacationing in Myrtle Beach my entire life but didn't find Collector's Cafe until my last visit. I wanted somewhere special to go with friends for a birthday dinner, and it was PERFECT. Delicious and artfully presented food, cozy ambience, amazing service, great drink choices. And save room for dessert! The salted caramel cake was truly remarkable.

Collector’s Cafe never disappoints! The Scallop Cake is always perfection. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a very loud Grandmother, Mom, & 2 young girls! Every word of their conversations was overwhelming! I understand that children need social experiences in order to mature & learn manners, but the Mom was louder than than the little girls! No concept of an “inside voice”! Oh, it was very early and the restaurant was almost empty! It will not keep us from visiting when we are in Myrtle a Beach, but will be a little more assertive about where we are seated.
