Excellent food and service. Best thing was that the food was served in a timely fashion so it was still HOT, which seems so hard to find!

WE ALWAYS LOVE THE COMFORT OF CHESTNUT HILL. IT IS STILL "OLD SCHOOL" QUALITY AND FAMILIARITY THAT MAKES US FEEL RIGHT AT HOME WHILE HAVING A WONDERFUL MEAL.

The food was OK - a different menu. The service was good and the view overlooking the pond is nice, but the food was a step down from what we were expecting.

Our server, Khalehla, was wonderful! She was friendly, informative about menu items, and very attentive. One of the best servers we have experienced anywhere, and we have dined around the world.
Food was excellent!

I have eaten there before and enjoyed my visit, therefore I returned. This time it was different. I had made reservations for 4 at 4:45 pm. We got whisked into a room and immediately was served a salad and another person wanted to serve us something else. We told them we hadn’t even looked at the menu. It turned out that they put us in a room full of bus people. I guess they thought we were part of them. So we got moved. Two of my party enjoyed there meal, and 2 not, me being one. Don’t know if it was because of the 2 bus loads of people, that the kitchen was rushed but the Seafood casserole was not good. A little over cooked and too cheesy.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Chestnut Hill. Their prime rib was excellent. The small seafood platter was also great. The scallops were the best part. We will definately be back!

We've been to Chestnut Hill many times and have always enjoyed it. This time was no exception. The food was wonderful as was our server. We asked for seating out of the sun and were graciously accommodated. We also enjoyed the young guitar player's music in the background. Enjoyable but not intrusive. We will be back!

The waitress seemed to be more into the conversation at the table than focusing on her job. At times it seemed as if she was intoxicated or high. The food was ok at best.

We like to go to Brunches. Lately it seems that restaurants call ordering off the breakfast menu Brunch. Chestnut Hill offers a large variety of foods, as much as you can eat. And you don’t have to order off of a breakfast menu. The only thing missing was the free flowing champagne. But that is ok. You can still order that or create your own Bloody Mary at the Bar. Eating in the library room with windows looking out at the water was very calming and nice. They also had a singer for live entertainment. We would go back again

Huge portions! Mahi was over cooked, seared tuna steak was not the best grade of tuna (tough, grizzly in spots). Fried oysters were very nice. Baked starters (biscuits, muffins) were excellent. Server was professional but still very friendly.

Crab cake was good.
The fried oysters was more batter than actual oysters.
Overpriced for the quality received.

A great place to eat, great food, creative choices all in a wonderful setting. This was our third trip there, so you can say we are fans. Food quality has always been superb though it can also be very rich. This is the second time we've had scallops and for the 2nd year in a row they were a little raw. My main disappointment is the lack of a dress code, or any segregation depending on dress. They have 3 distinct seating sections so maybe they could use them? We had two tables beside us that ranged from cut-offs & flip flops at one table to coats & ties at the other. I was hoping for a little more.

Four of us visited Chestnut Hill for our 1st time, during Sunday Brunch. We were welcomed by a large portion of the waitstaff along with a lovely older man, who verified our reservation. Beverage service was instantaneous and we were then invited to enjoy the buffet. We sampled hand-carved prime rib and carved, smoked ham, along with dozens of other unique breakfast and luncheon items. Among the items that we most enjoyed were cheese blintzes & mini waffles (hot REAL syrup), eggs benedict with Canadian bacon, chilled shrimp, corned beef hash, fresh fruits, crispy bacon, and these cupcake-shaped cheese-rich and crispy scalloped potato cakes. There were many other choices on the buffet, such as salad fixings and a desert area with two warm cobblers, pecan pie, and a moist carrot cake, among many other deserts. The hot foods were replaced often and the cold foods were appropriately chilled. We spent a lot of time watching the pond and the turtles, a bald eagle, and many varieties of birds, who were comical and often fishing. We could not have asked for a better experience. Our great BRUNCH was topped off by a reasonable guest check and a senior discount.

We were looking at restaurants to go on a date night while in Myrtle Beach. Our hotel gave this restaurant as a recommendation. We looked a the menu on their website and we were impressed with the options. So we chose Chestnut Hill. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was tasty. The atmosphere was quaint and warm. The prices were reasonable. Would definitely visit again.

The 70 item buffet was spectacular in all categories. Especially loved Chicken salad, carrot salad, smoked salmon, tuna, salmon with a dill sauce. My husband loved the green beans and prime rib… Maybe slightly overcooked. The crustless quiche was the best I’ve ever had. There was a potato soufflé dish that was an amazing and I normally don’t eat potatoes. The shrimp and grits were very good. My very favorite dish was the Seafood that had large scallops, shrimp and mussels. The scallops were some of the best I’ve ever had.
I am a sweet addict and the desserts were good but not superb. I did like the two cobblers a lot.
I go to dinner with every visit to Myrtle Beach but I will now go to the Sunday buffet every trip!!

Seafood fettuccine was not good. Sauce was too thick and chalky. Key lime pie was very dry and no lime flavor at all.
Pumpkin muffins and cheese biscuits were very good.
Spent $100 for 2 people (no alcohol ) which was too expensive.

6 of us had reservations for 8pm on a Friday night offseason. The restaurant was moderately crowded and we were seated fairly quickly. Our server took our orders and gave us recommendations. Several people got the crab cakes and they enjoyed them. The firecracker shrimp appetizer was very good. Several people got the shrimp sampler and they enjoyed that. 1 of us got the seafood casserole but it was dry and the crab was not lump crabmeat and not very good. 1 of us got the fried seafood platter and it was also very dry and we had to ask for tarter sauce. The server was not quick to refill the small water glasses. Overall the prices were reasonable for the value of the meal but we would not recommend this restaurant.

The selections of beef, poultry, seafood, and chicken were varied. This is predominantly a seafood venue. Not inexpensive; however, a good value. They were generous with their glass of wine. Many meals come in a choice of large or small. Only order large if you are really hungry. A traditional restaurant with good portions. A good family and dating venue.

Chestnut Hill Restaurant is in a nice older home with a lake view. Our server was named Dee and she was very nice and attentive and was helpful on menu selection. We liked the oysters Rockefeller, and the fish and shrimp combination, and cheese biscuits and blueberry muffins. The Derby Pie is Delicious!

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner. Our server David was knowledgeable, fielding our questions about the dinner choices. We chose from the small plate menu and found the quality and size of the portions very satisfying and pocketbook-friendly. The ambience was a bit old fashioned which we really enjoyed along with the view of the lake. The crab cakes were tasty and fresh in flavor. I would recommend the broiled batch of the day. We split a slice of key lime pie for dessert. Would definitely recommend this establishment.
