I wanted to go somewhere different for my birthday dinner and I’ve always driven past here and heard great things, so myself, my husband and two teenaged boys made a reservation and had dinner here. It was amazing! The staff was so friendly, our waiter was as probably the best and friendliest we have ever had, anywhere. We all had the filet and it was delicious!! Loved the salad bar and breads, and we all split the lemoncello and tiramisu for dessert, both were incredible. We are local and we wish it didn’t take so long for us to try this restaurant. Will definitely be back!!!

Steaks were great, everything else was very poor. Blackened salmon wasn't blackened, it was dusted with salty old bay type spice. Broccoli that came with the salmon was pretty much raw and tasteless. The baked potatoes tasted like they were cooked yesterday.

It's not my first visit and I found it to have great service and good food. You should offer more of a Vegan choice on the menu.

Library IV
Responded on August 7, 2019

Hi Suggie6759. Thanks for this feedback and we appreciate the positive rating. As a steakhouse we certainly have not focused on vegan, but understanding where the market is going we will take a look at this and add some items. Thank you.

We have been to the Library in Voorhees several years ago, so we forgot how to order. When we were seated, the hostess failed to do anything other than take us to our seat and say, "Here's your table." No explanation of how things were done. Our server came and took our drink order. She brought our drinks about 5 minutes later. Again, no explanation of how to do things. After sitting for 40 minutes with no food, and no attention from the server, we asked a busboy for the manager. He was very apologetic, and paid for our drinks. At that point, we were ready to leave, so we left without eating. I can't really rate the food, as we never tasted it. I would return again, but we will be prepared next time.

I was seated next to a table (so close I could have touched the child closest to me). Within 10 seconds the child let out a bloodcurdling screech and again and again). So when I went to the salad bar I stopped at the hostess stand to see about how much longer that family would be there. I was told they were almost finished and there was no other place to put me. I proceeded to the salad bar and returned to my seat next to the screaming child. Imagine my a amazement when their meal was served. I mashed my way through my salad, placed my food order and that family lingered. The manager came to see how they were enjoying their meal. Finally they left!! Yippee! I noticed that the manager only stopped at the tables where the Tomahawk had been ordered - the family near me and one other table. Big bone with meat attached which hung off the plate maybe 10".
It was not a pleasant expensive meal which I had looked forward to

Best steaks around in my opinion. I had a 10 oz filet and lobster tail my buddy had the Tomahawk ribeye it’s huge and his wife had the tips and tails. We all thought it was excellent. Homemade Irish whiskey cake and Peters coffee for dessert.

Library IV has always been a consistent place to dine. The menu selections and specials are varied giving substantial items to choose from. Wine listing is very good as well. All steaks and prime rib are hand cut and are very fresh. Food is always delicious no matter what you order, and their salad bar is fabulous as well. Go to the Library IV if you want a great meal.
