I looked forward to our special anniversary date Saturday at Brentwood. We arrived at the time , 7:15, of our reservation and a walk-in couple was seating before us. We were seating in a large room with many people and asked to be moved because we could not talk normally it was so loud. We were given a lovely table in the upstairs bar. We waited almost two hours to get our meal. It came to us at 8:50. I ordered the Vegetarian Stack which was presented cold. I sent it back and rather thNa fresh new hot entree, the plate was smushed around and heated most likely in a microwave. My husbands entree was very good however he ate without me as mine was rewarmed. It was a busy night but we feel we will most likely not give BreNtwood another try. Not a pleasant night!

We had the burger with a peppercorn sauce, really delicious. There is a slightly spicy sauce with the truffle chips that make them addicting! If you haven't been on the patio, try it soon.

I had placed our reservation online earlier in the day. When we got to the restaurant, I did not realize we had to make a separate reservation for the outdoor Lobster meal. Fortunately, 4 people had just canceled their reservations, so we were able to get in. We were there with another couple celebrating our anniversary. I would have been disappointed had I not have been able to get the meal we had planned on getting. The food was good, the music was nice, the atmosphere was great. We will definitely go back.

This is one of our favorite restaurants though it’s rather expensive. I ordered the grouper special and was a little disappointed. It was a little bland and the fish was a little over cooked. For the price it should have been outstanding. Otherwise everyone was extremely happy with their meals. Service was great.

It was a very romantic setting with a beautiful window view. My wife and I rarely enjoy fine dining, but The Brentwood blew us away. The food was amazing and the Belgium Chocolate Soufflé was fantastic! We had made a reservation and enjoyed our own room for about half our meal. Overall it was a wonderful experience that we enjoyed tremendously.

Dinner date with my wife. Excellent evening! WILLIAM was our server and provided excellent care. Punctual, made nice suggestions, even offered to alter sides with a particular dish my wife liked. He allowed us quiet time but kept check on our needs without being obtrusive.
I had the Chef special, a mixed grill of lamb sausage, duck and salmon. Excellent! My wife ordered the Salmon. I ordered the beets and goat cheese as an add on for my side salad. It was excellent! We also shared another chef special which was a peach bread pudding. It was delicious and perfect size for sharing...with a cup of coffee!
The Chef also visited our table and we enjoyed our conversation with him.
It was a perfect evening! Thank you Brentwood for the hospitality and quality!

Wonderful French restaurant owned by a French chef (Chef Eric) providing genuine French cuisine in a beautiful 1910 era mansion. Great wines personally selected by the Chef from both French and domestic wines. A great place to celebrate special occasions or create lifelong memories. Highly recommended.

The food was very good, but our service was a bit off. I think perhaps our server was over-worked. We got the tasting menu with wine pairings, and the timing of wines to food courses was off--quite a bit in one case. Our server was, well, different. Maybe too relaxed; his professionalism did not match that of the kitchen. Anyway, we have been to the restaurant on other occasions and always liked the whole experience, so we are writing this one off as an anomaly. We would, of course, recommend the Brentwood House to anyone who is looking for fine dining in the area.

Always a wonderful meal here. Great choice for romantic night out (unless your sitting next to a noisy 6 top). If so, asked to be moved upstairs. Hard to be romantic when your competing against a group that think they own the place.
Food was spectacular and everyone was very attentive..

We do not typically enjoy the touristy restaurants in Myrtle Beach so we decided to make the drive. They were very pleasant and the food was what we were looking for. William was very generous and we will plan to return the next time we are in South Carolina!
