Surprised my friend visiting from Florida by taking her to John Lombardo’s new restaurant, 42nd Street Bar & Grill. She had the filet with truffles which ended up being the best she ever eaten because of the buttery smokey flavors. We shared the beet tartar which was delicious. I enjoyed the glazed salmon which sat on a bed of shredded lettuce dressed in a light sweet dressing that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Definitely an eatery you should check out when in Myrtle Beach, SC.

The food is incredible and only outdone by the service! Bill is incredible and it was great to speak with John, the owner when he came to our table. This is a great find...going back tomorrow!

This was my wife's and I third time to go to 42nd Street this year. Obviously, we are very pleased with the attentiveness that we are shown and also any guests we had that evening. We were a party of five. We made reservations early as we are all on the older side and dealing with eyesight issues. We had the place to ourselves, but let me assure you, everything was in order. All meals seem to be prepared as they are ordered, keeping everything fresh and great tasting. We urge you, if you have not been, be prepared to be amazed. Definitely worth the trip and easily on the middle of Myrtle Beach !! Our server William was fantastic !!

Excellent food and service. Inventive cuisine with a touch of Asian influence. Had pan seared scallops on a bed of white beans - very tasteful. Others in our party praised the filet with truffles and the lobster Mac ‘n cheese.
Waiter was attentive and knowledgeable.

Definitely will return when I am in the area!

A great place for a well served excellent dinner. Rice balls as a happy hour special appetizer were excellent. Wait staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. John the owner is involved and cares about his customers comments and suggestions.

I really wanted to love this place. Of course, it was off-season so that may have contributed to the experience. I thought the wine list by the glass was too limiting. I opted for a cocktail but was disappointed. The service worker offered me a replacement and suggested the peach vodka. It was okay but too sweet to be a dinner cocktail, more like a dessert. I ordered the beet salad which was okay but the mussels were not edible. Many were still closed and the ones that had opened were very small and off-color. My friends had the salmon which they said was very good. The final disappointment came at closing out the tab. We opted for separate checks which were appreciated. However, my tab was $30+ change. I gave 2 $20 bills expecting change to leave a 20% tip. The service waiter kept the entire remaining change and didn't even attempt at offering me the balance which I thought was very presumptive.

Very lovely place. Upscale. Food was different from most restaurants which is good. One concern is that our meals did not come out together. I need my food hot so I had to begin eating alone.
I noticed the same with the table next to us. Something that needs working on. And my plate did not LOOK like the photo!

Absolutely the best meal!! Calamari was buttery soft. Excellent!! Beef Wellington, ribeye and main course were excellent. Lemon cello cake was light and airy. A hidden gem that must be experienced. We made a reservation for tomorrow. Last night in town. Best meal by far.

This was a nice find after reviewing other patrons on Open Table. We have lived here for five years now, and really have had our ups and downs with some of the restaurants locally. We literally had the place to ourselves at 5pm, no surprise, and being a little after vacation season. We have to admit we will return !! Appetizers, martinis, wine were outstanding. We asked and received good advice from our waiter, Jason, and followed through on a lovely piece of steak with chocolate truffle paste, and a beautiful red snapper entrée. Dessert was shared. Excellent evening !!

Always looking for new places to eat in the Myrtle Beach area, I stumbled upon this restaurant on open table. Based on the previous reviews, I was excited to try it. I was not disappointed! The food was incredible and the service impeccable. Upscale restaurant food at reasonable prices. I’m afraid once the word gets out, we won’t be able to get in anymore! That’s how great it is. Can’t wait to go back.

The name does not truly define the restaurant. It is so much more than a bar and grill. It is an excellent fine dining restaurant at reasonable prices. Very nice decor and a nice ambience and not noisy.
It’s tucked away in a small strip of stores and easy to miss driving by but well worth the effort to find it.

Wow - can't believe we found this hidden gem!!!!! If you are looking for a quaint restaurant that has amazing food and service - look no further. The pork chop with mashed potato and asparagus was phenomenal! Also loved the ahi tuna and calamari as an appetizer. We took our 4 and 8 year old daughter and they both loved the food! Fortunately, they were very behaved, the restaurant is perfect for a romantic meal or gathering with friends. We will definitely be back!

Impressive! That was my husband’s feeling about the delicious tender filet he ordered for the amazingly inexpensive price. The snapper I ordered was not to my liking, but the quinoa that came with it was scrumptious. We had a delightful dining experience and believe you would too.

I came home and told friends on Facebook how terrific this restaurant was! It should be listed as a Grille and Bar. We ate many of the offerings on the menu: snapper, scallops, chicken, pork chop, lobster Mac and cheese and we have some nightly small eaters and everyone ate EVERYTHING!! We were taken care of exquisitely from the table being ready for 11 of us, water on the table and the most amazing bread and a dipping sauce of pesto, leeks and olive oil. We ordered two appetizers: ahi tuna and beets tartare and there was enough on both plates to share and they were also wonderfully done.
There was only one other table eating while we were there and I mentioned this restaurant should BE FULL OF PATRONS! It is that good. Please try it out!! You will NOT be disappointed!! Entrees are in the $20.00+ but worth every penny!!

Found on internet and gave it a try while on vacation. Very enjoyable. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. I was impressed with the presentation. Owner stopped by and we had a pleasant conversation. Would recommend for a nicer dinner. Had a small bar too. I had a raspberry manhattan that was very good. Pleasantly surprised and very nice.
