4 different entries, rack of lamb, beef bourguignon, duck confit and salmon, each was prepared perfectly and our service was outstanding. The oysters Rockefeller and escargot appetizers exceeded our expectations. Next stop here will be the wine bar for happy hour and half price appetizers!

We have been to Brentwood several times, mostly with family. Love the ambience, the food, but not the service this time. Very slow, and when we asked for a dessert menu, the server brought 1, and we had to ask for 2 more! Still love the restaurant - close to our home and classy.

Service was very good. Kitchen was a bit slow which was surprising since it wasn’t very full. Food was good and wine selection recommended by our waiter, Jeff, was very good with good value. Since this was off season it seemed that staffing was minimal which could hav3 been the reason for wait on food and having Jeff make our cocktails.

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!

We will be back, and would highly recommend
