    The hostess was awesome, then we were seated…15 mins later the hostess comes to our table to let us know someone would be with us. 10 mins later our server showed us, she was very nice. We ordered dinner because we knew what we wanted to eat. Husband ordered a drink, 10 mins later drink still had not arrived. We decided to dine somewhere else. I really was looking forward to eating at this establishment, but it wasn’t our night. Just wanted to share my experience.

    I should have known that with the last minute availability compared to all the other restaurants in the area that things were going to be off. We were greeted by a hostess and I told her we had a reservation for a party of 5. She proceeded to walk us to a 4 top meanwhile almost every table in the restaurant was empty. I explained there were 5 of us and that was a table for 4. She looked confused and implied pulling up a 5th chair but she then walked us over to a bigger table. We were greeted by our server after several minutes. We ordered chips and salsa and a big basket of chips came out but no salsa. My sons entree came out wrong as well. My husbands steak wasn’t good and my entree just tasted strange altogether. At one point, I turned around toward the hostess stand and she was leaning and her bottom was completely exposed because of how short her skirt was which I found complexly inappropriate in a restaurant period but more so with children. Our server was friendly and tried hard but it was a very disappointing overall experience.

    Our third time dining for dinner at the Cypress Room over the years and once again they did not disappoint. The food, service, and atmosphere were great for a nice family dinner. In addition, the singer/entertainer brought back memories of some great songs when my wife and I were younger. If you have not tried the Cypress Room for dinner, try it. Finally, if you have not stayed at the Island Vista (where the Cypress Room is located), it is also a great place to stay during your vacation.

    Great ocean views and breeze, and the live music was really nice. The service was inconsistent, the person didn’t know the menu or paid attention when we advised dairy was a concern. The flounder was dry. The restaurant automatically added a 20% tip which we would not have given.

    Excellent experience. The best dinning experience during our stay at Myrtle Beach. I had a broiled seafood trio with mashed potatoes and asparagus/carrots that was simply outstanding. My daughter ordered the shrimp risotto dish that was fabulous. Great service and atmosphere. Ate outstanding on the veranda with heat ocean view and live music as a backdrop. Prices were very reasonable, especially given the quality, presentation and atmosphere. Highly recommend!!

    Honestly our experience did not quite equal the other top reviews. Our server was semi knowledgeable and vague in describing the menu. Two of us had the chicken Marsala which was basically a breast of chicken with gravy. The shrimp risotto was good as was the buffalo chicken wrap. I’d say this was a 3 star restaurant. No more.

    We ate at the Cypress Room very shortly after they opened for dinner. Was wondering whether the kitchen would be up to speed at that point, but it's one of the few restaurants in the area that are ready for dinner before 6:30 and we had a time constraint. My wife ordered the stuffed flounder and I a New York Strip...and had the bruschetta as a starter. We finished with what I suppose is best described as a berry cobbler and key lime pie. The service was on point through the whole meal. And, as for the meal, I'll say that the Cypress Room has a chef in the kitchen and not just a cook. Meaning, while the food was all very good, the presentation exceeded expectations. Overall, the Cypress Room provided a better experience than most of the restaurants in Myrtle Beach that are aspiring to be perceived as upscale.

    We so enjoyed our evening dining at The Cypress Room. Brookes our server was very attentive and even remembered our salad dressing selections from a previous visit. Glenn Taylor was playing guitar and provided such a nice ambiance. The food was beautiful in its presentation and absolutely delicious. Where else can you find an excellent meal, and incredible views of the oceanfront, all while being entertained. Love this place!

    Despite a confirmed reservation, we were to be sent to an outside table. When rejected, we were offered a four-top next to a band for the two of us, so we also rejected that. Then we learned that the menu was limited to just two items (Valentine's Day) so we left. Parking was another issue. After finding no spots in their very small front lot and the parking across the street, we tried the parking garage and found all prime spots "Reserved for Employees". After coming here for 35 years, this was our last visit ever.

    Enjoyed a nice dinner while staying at the resort. The view can't be beat and live music added to the atmosphere. Cocktails were delicious, service was decent and food was tasty. The menus were damaged and difficult to read which was weird, perhaps sending guests to an online menu might be a better option. It just gave a bad first impression of the restaurant but overall we enjoyed our dinner at the Cypress Room!

    If you are looking for a great meal and superb service, oceanfront then Cypress Room is a no brainer. Domitric was an outstanding server who took very good care of us. I also appreciate the other wait staff checking in on us too. Plus there was live music! We had Filet Mignon and Flounder. Both were superb and we would order them again and again. Don't visit Myrtle Beach without a meal at Cypress Room.

    Very limited menu. Very few options for Seafood allergy wife and daughter. No one had a good meal worth the money that was charged. Salmon was over cooked and dry, tasteless. Will not be back. Even though staying at the hotel and without a rental car - I’d rather take an Uber or walk to local dining 1 mile away.
