We love the salad bar! It is the best one we have ever go to! Great meals too! My hubby loves the prime rib and I usually get the filet, I got the king crab legs and was in absolute heaven! They were so very yummy!

We frequently meet our son and his family for dinner. Brian serves excellent beef as well as other proteins. This is the “go to” place when you
are craving a delicious steak.

We like to bring friends to this very warm and friendly restaurant. As a "regular" we get wonderful service from people we have come to care for as friends. The food is consistently good.

We went for a impromptu dinner at Easter
We only had to wait 5 minutes for a table
The salad bar had excellent selections with three different the scallops and shrimp appetizer was good but the bacon could of been crisper the prime rib and baked potato were delicious the lamb chops were good but they were medium when I asked for medium rare
Great staff and service

What I found most disturbing and somewhat gross was the guy taking the orders was also cutting blood red meat on the same counter top without any gloves.

Been here several times. Steak was great as always, but the garlic mashed potatoes left something to be desired this time. Tasted like boxed potatoes instead of something made from scratch.

The waitress also had some confusion bringing me the correct beer that I requested, and when I asked for the correct one instead of what she brought me, the bartender gave her something else and told her "I would like it better than what I asked for" which was pretty annoying. If someone asked for a Coke you wouldn't bring them a Sprite because you think they'll like it better.

All this to say we will definitely eat here again. This is the first time we've ever experienced anything like this, so I'd believe it to be an outlier from the norm.

This is the first time that we had to send back the rib-eye steaks. They were loaded with grizzle and not edible. Ordered filet instead

I wasn't expecting to order my food from a window. The steak was tender but it lacked flavor. But, I am from New Orleans so I expect alot.

Haven't been here in years but the food is still great. I love the dinner ordering process. Service was fantastic and quick. Only downside is the cost. Not an inexpensive dinner.

I’ve been here a few times. It is the best restaurant near my home, the food is excellent. The owner is a great person, and really cares about the restaurant. The service is very good, the only thing that was not perfect, is that it was a little loud, but it that would melt stop me from coming back. We liked it, ate very well, and felt homey sitting through dinner, and relaxing. I will return often.

the library IV is always a good meal at a good price. Although it was St. Patty's day, we had a reservation @7:15pm and did not get seated until after 8:00pm.

After dinner Brian (the owner) came by our table to apologize and give us dessert "on the house".

Class act ! that was the right thing to do

We had the best meal at The Library IV! The salad bar was phenomenal and the drinks were exceptional. Well stocked salad bar with nice ice cold plates and the staff was constantly refilling the salad bar items! Love the selection of bread and crackers and that cheese is amazing! I had the best king crab legs with rice & I choose to order a side of asparagus and all of it was cooked perfectly! My hubby ordered the rib eye with broccoli and it was also very delicious! Cannot wait to go back for another meal at this lovely, friendly restaurant!

The restaurant was unusual busy when we were there. The food was very good. The salad bar could have been a little less messy. The service wasn’t good. I was fine being seated about 15 mins later Than my reservation because they were very busy. However our server was really struggling. It seemed like they were have computer issues too. The server didn’t provide any instructions - (you basically go up to counter and make
Your selections) after sitting there for 10 minutes we asked and she said oh sorry. Never provided the specials - we had to ask. Never gave us a drink menu. My GF asked for savugon blanch, server said they didn’t have it. We Asked for drink Menu and there it was. Server said they must have just added it. We had to ask for water when our food came.

Have had better experiences then last night. Had a reservation and were there 10 mins before. Little or no place to sit/wait, which is why we always make a reservation. Had to wait about a half hour beyond our reservation, only to have the hostess change our seat 3 times during the seating process. Food has been better. The chicken picatta was tough. Filet was done perfectly, and was ok. For the money, just a potato isn't enough any more. Salad bar (as the only veg option) is on the other side of the restaurant in a high traffic area. This used to be one of our favorites, so hoping it was just a bad night.

My favorite restaurant!! Local and independently owned, the food is fantastic. A bit pricier than the chain restaurants nearby, but the food and service is well worth the extra dollars. Given the choice, I'd go The Library IV any day!! Never had a bad meal there, whether it was a burger or filet mignon.

Must have hit a bump in the service. Normally the food and service are excellent. We were kinda ignored by our waiter and the salmon was a bit over cooked. Salad bar and other dinners were good. Bryan really put together a nice spot!

Always a good meal. The staff are very nice and are excellent servers. The noise level is great. I like that you can have dinner conversations without screaming over noise. This also a great place for a romantic dinner with the low lighting in some area.
