2nd visit to Brentwood. Love the atmosphere with small number of diners in each room. Service was great. Oyster Rockefeller was a little too soupy for me. Lobster was ok but would have preferred just plain tail. Chocolate souffle was excellent. Negatives not enough to keep me from returning.

We had a fabulous anniversary dinner at The Brentwood on Friday night. We were seated shortly after arriving (made reservations online with OpenTable. Our meals were delicious and the service was outstanding. It is a little pricey but it was a special occasion.

It was our first visit to Brentwood on the recommendation of a local friend.

A beautiful house with lots of character. Our food was outstanding. The duck trio was rich and flavorful. The seafood bouillabaisse was fresh, hearty and the broth was unspeakably good.

Our server, Jordan, his fifth day on the job, was a good waiter. He was confident and funny and was very diligent.

However, this was the day before Thanksgiving. We were told (& overheard everyone being told) how busy they were going to be on Thanksgiving Day with over 600 guests between 11am and 8pm, and how much work and preparation was going into that meal.
It was obvious the wait staff was preparing for the next day and lots of pressure was on them to get tasks completed.
Our experience was great and we’ll definitely go back. My only recommendation is for Brentwood to not allow a current guests experience to be somewhat minimized by the magnitude of a future one.

Terrific anniversary dinner. Excellent escargot and beef wellington. Terrific drinks at a reasonable price. Sat at a very nice table upstairs overlooking the bar area. Very nicely decorated in taste and style. Thank you. We will be back. Tim and Donna

appetizers were very good. salad was good also. entrees were a little disappointed with. Duck was just OK. Seafood stuffed lobster with lobster risotto was fair.

We were out for our anniversary and our meal at Brentwood made it more special. My husband had the Chilean Sea Bass, and I had the Pan Seared Scallops with Limoncello Risotto. Both absolutely delicious and the meal presentation --beautiful. Dessert was over the top--Chocolate Soufflé with raspberry sauce and Bread Pudding with Banana Foster Sauce. If you want a delicious meal, beautifully served with attention to detail, Brentwood is your place.

While some people might eat there everyday, we think it is a little expensive for that. We save the Brentwood for special occasions or for when we want to treat ourselves. I think it would be nice if they would add a few new items to their menu. Regardless, everything they serve is good.

Excellent food, excellent service.

We arrived at 4:00PM, we were greeted promptly and seated immediately. We had the room to ourselves, so of course it was quiet.

The server, Eric, was very professional. Drinks refilled, "do you need more bread?", every detail of service was correct.

The bouillabaisse was superb. The filet mignon au poivre was quite good, it was cooked exactly to medium rare that I ordered. My wife had a souffle for dessert - nice presentation, and quite tasty.

My sister lives nearby (in Little River); she has spoken highly of "Brentwood".
Everything she said was true! This is a classy establishment with very, very good food, and excellent service. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will return on our next visit to Myrtle Beach.

I rate Brentwood Restaurant 5 stars!

As usual, the Brentwood was a lovely place to bring friends. The mixed grill and lamb shanks were wonderful. The shrimp & scallops chardonnay, which I had before, was served with penne pasta which didn't do the sauce justice. As a less hearty sauce, it should have been served with angel hair or linguine. That's how it was in the past and was a much better complement to the dish. The penne is too robust. All else was lovely.

First time visiting and it won't be the last! The food was absolutely delicious and portions were generous. Started with some tasty cocktails, followed by some escargot...AMAZING. Duck and pork osso bucco was wonderful. However, the highlight of the night was the chocolate souffle! THE BEST! You must order ahead when you order your dinner as it is housemade to order. If you're not sure that you'll have room after dinner, don't worry...you'll make room! It was perfect! Can't wait to go back. Definitely recommend

This is an amazing restaurant with wonderful hospitality!
Brian or server/ bartender upstairs was phenomenal!
Super knowledgeable, friendly and attentive!
My only complaint would be that before 8pm they ran out of three main dinner entrees!
Poor planning on the chefs part. We heard multiple servers have to apologize and explain to guests that they were out of items. A bit embarrassing for them I’m sure.

He was professional, friendly, attentive and efficient. We definitely will go back to the Brentwood restaurant for another terrific night out. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Loved this place so much! Absolutely beautiful and unique. The Beef Wellington and espresso creme brûlée were to die for. Only negative was another table being very loud and due to it being in an old home the tables are all very close so it was distracting. I would 100% recommend and return!
