Once again, The Brentwood was phenomenal! From service to dessert, the evening was a luxury of food and family, moderately priced and deliciously well-prepared. I will come here again with my family for another special occasion. Thank you to the entire team - this was exquisite, and very much appreciated.

A group of us went to Brentwood for restaurant week and picked Brentwood based on the variety of choices on their fixed menu. The group overall was very disappointed with the quality and the quantity of the food. Two in the group ordered tomato soup for their appetizer and the soup was luke warm and served in a huge bowl but when the spoon was stuck straight down the amount of soup only covered half of the spoon ladle. Another person got the beet and cheese salad and was at the most two bites. As for the entrees again the taste of the beef Bourgogne was good but about two bites. Others got the stuffed flounder which looked like a small white blob and was not very good. On to desserts, again a big failure on taste. Nothing would begin to count for the set $30 per person cost.

Went to try the Brentwood for the first time. It was restaurant week so we figured we could get an idea of what this place was about. We enjoyed the ambiance, a quaint house remodeled into a restaurant. We were seated next to a group of 8 that was very loud, but we did not mind. Our server was excellent. His name was Jeff and you could tell he was a very experienced server and very familiar with the Brentwood. The food was selected from the limited restaurant week menu plus wine pairing. The pear and goat cheese salad and french onion soup were both excellent. The entrees (Low Country Cassoulet and Beef Bourguignon) were both bland and nothing special. We would not order either of those entrees again. The bread pudding dessert was good and I would order it again. Overall I would probably try this restaurant again and order from the main menu.

This was the second visit to this lovely “Haunted” house. It has a really nice feel to it when you arrive. Our server, Hayley was most personable and offered some great suggestions for dinner. My wife had the escargot and I had the she crab soup. Bother were delicious. Y wife had the scallops and shrimp Chardonnay as I had the grouper special. Both were really good with nice flavor. The sauces were outstanding and most flavorful. For desert we decided to go for the soufflé since it was Saturday night date night. It was a little wait and you needed to preorder since it took some time to make. Overall the portion sizes were good and my only improvement would be that part of the grouper was not fully cooked yet there was enough that was cooked to not take away from the dining experience. It’s a place for a return visit. Oh, no ghosts joined us for dinner. Lol

We knew after our first time here our friends would love the Brentwood as much as we do and we were right! They thoroughly enjoyed everything. From the moment we walked up the front steps and through the front door they were enchanted. Our server Jeff is knowledgeable, friendly and fun. We know we'll be back soon.

We arrived and were seated immediately. The window at our table was cold due to very low outside temperature and we were allowed to move to a different table. Our waiter was aware of our special occasion, greeted us cordially, and was attentive throughout the evening. Everything tasted great. Timing between courses was proper. Met and chatted with the Chef after our meal was done. It was an enjoyable dining experience, and we will be back.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. The staff made it a very special evening with their friendliness and professionalism.

The Brentwood is a charming old house that has been tastefully decorated. The evening we dined, there was a rather large, boisterous party celebrating a birthday. The home is divided such that we dined in a quiet, romantic room while the Birthday party had a great time in the room next door.

The menu is French tho there are some Low Country dishes and the entire menu features local seafood. We enjoyed our appetizers, salads, entres and deserts.

The Brentwood is the perfect place for a special evening or if you're just in the mood for French food. They have a special fixed price menu for early diners so check it out as well as their wine dinners and haunted house evenings.

We just moved to the area and this was our first time at the restaurant. It was our anniversary and they decorated the table which made it nice. The food was very good and the owner/chef Eric came out after he was done cooking and visited the tables. It's nice to see the owner out chatting with guests. Love the old house and the ambiance. We enjoyed our evening and will be back.

We don't eat out often but when we do we pick the best places in North Myrtle Beach we can find. The Brentwood is on our "go-to" list for dinner out. The ambiance is lovely upstairs or down. The food is always great. Brentwood has a terrific Happy Hour with $5.00 small plates that can easily make a meal. The patio is lovely especially when they have music. Menu selections include a fixed price menu that allows you to have a meal with salad and dessert along with the chef's wine pairings. I recommend it highly!

After a dozen visits over a period of a 2-3 year Brentwood never disappoints. We vacation in the area and this is always a must-go especially if with friends. Food is always fabulous and service is excellent. Wine list is full of entry level, basics and extravagant choices. The escargot and she crab is outstanding as is the lamb chops and stuffed lobster.

We dined at Brentwood with another couple when we traveled to the Myrtle Beach area. We stayed in North Myrtle Beach and this restaurant was very convenient for us. It was our first time to eat there but we plan to make it a regular stop whenever we come back to visit the area. The food quality, ambiance, and service were all something that is special compared to all the chain places, sports bars, and fried fish places in the crowded Myrtle Beach restaurant scene.

I attended the restaurant with my elderly neighbor and friend who was recently widowed. It was her birthday celebration. It was a very enjoyable evening. The service was top notch with our server suggesting items for the meal . We thoroughly enjoyed all the selections. Each course was very flavorful. It was a treat and special pleasure for the chef to come out of the kitchen and greet us. Most of all, the entire evening made my friend very happy. We have been telling our friends.

We've been here a number of times. With one exception the food, service, ambiance and value have been great. This time, we both had a Chef's specialty, the potato crusted triggerfish. We both agreed that it was marvelous. Thin slices fingerling potatoes arranged as scales on the fish. Perfectly done and on a bed of leeks which was perfect to balance the richness of the sauce. We clearly understand why this has been an award winning dish for the chef. This is our go-to place for a special meal in the North Myrtle Beach/Little River area.

My husband and I and another couple were celebrating my husband's birthday. When we arrived, the table was decorated for the occasion! Our server, Ross, was attentive and personable. Service was excellent. Food was excellent. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere because we were able to converse without shouting - a plus considering the noise level of many restaurants in the area. (One of us really enjoyed the bouillabaisse and every "ooh" and "ahh" and "yum" was easily heard!) We had a lovely evening. Thank you!

We are so full and sleepy from our three course excellent meal tonight at the Brentwood! However, we promised our amazing server Fonda to put this review on Open Table before we pass out with smiles on our faces. The salad with the poached pears and blue cheese was fantastic as always. My friend said the haricots verts were the yummiest, crispiest green beans she had ever had. The steak was crusty on the outside and so tender inside. The crab cake was delicious, as were the scallops. Their whipped butter is a trade secret, we could only get the first few ingredients from our wise server. I had the escargot, was fantastic as always, and the fried green tomatoes with goat cheese, were crispy and tangy and perfect. Fonda told us about the history of the Brentwood house and gave us the lowdown on the area. Thanks Fonda, see you again next year!

Take great food and add friendly great service, and you can't go wrong.

Our server (Fonda) was really good. She was very patient and informative in discussing the menu and checked back with us just the right amount.
