This was a great experience here! We enjoyed very much!! The surf and turf was excellent and the grilled shrimp was excellent. The fried seafood platter was the smaller portion and it was very large my mother absolutely loved it. We would definitely go again and try other items everything was delicious even the homemade salad dressing that they had was excellent!

The meal was amazing. I had the blackened mixed grill with the mahi Nd it was excellent. My son's friend had the teriyaki chicken and was still talking about it the next day. My son had the crabcakes and they were also amazing as well. Service was wonderful. The kids had many refills of sweet tea and they were never left empty. Highly recommend Chestnut Hill!! It's the one restaurant that is a must on every trip.

The seafood was delicious and the service great. Friendly, local little restaurant with a really nice staff. A little pricey, but the seafood was fresh and the cheddar biscuits and muffins were good. Would go back.

My wife and I are from South Carolina and have traveled to the beach area many times. For no particular reason this was our first time dining at chestnut hill, it won't be our last. Staff members were welcoming and the food was delicious.

The food was really good. We had steak and lobster; and both were beautifully done. The wait staff was very nice. However, the place was virtually empty at 7 PM on a Friday night in the middle of the summer!

The tables and set up were more like a diner than a nice restaurant. The menu was mostly just line items. Maybe this was because of the pandemic, but really boring.

It's a shame; the view outside of the water (lake) was really nice, and the food was excellent. Two big suggestions: redecorate inside, and then market yourself! (I am a local and if you need help with marketing, PM me!)

Great service and food. Sat by the window and caught them throwing food into the lake so got a great view of some gators and turtles.

Scallops were perfect as was the flounder. The shrimp were small but delicious. Bacon wrapped scallops appetizer were delicious. Server was excellent and had loads of local recommendations.

Food was very good. But potatoes I got were 2 small red potatoes. For a 25.00 meal , they could put 3-4 potatoes on that plate. Veggies were good. Chicken was very good. Just needed more potatoes. Salad was also very good.

Nice comfortable quiet dining. Bonus is view of wildlife on the pond. Cloth napkins and classy enough to dress up if you want to for a special occasion. Menu is varied enough that we’ve come to celebrate more than one anniversary on our annual MB vacation.

The only issue was that our server was not wearing a mask. She provided no up front explanation and we grew increasingly uncomfortable. I expressed concern to management and they advised she had a health condition that prevented her from wearing a mask. They offered to switch servers and we accepted, but in this environment I think it was inappropriate to not disclose this before seating us to see if we had concerns.

Was really hoping to enjoy a wonderful dinner but sadly it was less than mediocre. The steaks were good however mine was well over cooked. The vegetables were extremely salty and the roasted red potatoes were just potatoes nothing special. I explained to our waitress that this was the worse meal I have had from here. The waitress just kind of brushed off my concerns. Well I will not recommend nor return.

Very nice restaurant! Watched an alligator swimming outside the window. The food was delicious and the staff was superb! I'm a big eater and the portions were plenty for me. I actually got a to go box which rarely happens. I loved this place and will definitely be a regular when I come back to Myrtle Beach!

Top quality seafood, excellent service from a diverse group of individuals, great price for the level of food quality and service, dining room view over looks a small body of water with a turtle hang out spot, we ate at Ruths Chris two days later and the bill at Chesnut Hill was half and the food quality and service was slightly better. If you are looking for a fine dining experience while visiting Myrtle Beach, give Chestnut Hill a try. You will not be disappointed.

What a wonderful dining experience! We had reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. The staff wore masks and gloves and social distancing was observed throughout the restaurant. We felt safe eating inside the building. Our food was delicious and portions were not skimpy. Our server, Frank, explained the eco-friendly restaurant from beautiful wood beams to items on the menu. We had lobster tails and filet mignon medallions. They were cooked perfectly! Frank was extremely attentive and made the experience fun! We highly recommend this restaurant. Be sure to ask for Frank for your server when you arrive. He will take good care of you.

We have eaten here during vacation for many years. This year, it just wasn’t that great. I hope it was due to the pandemic and next year it is better. If not, we will find someplace else to go.

We were the only ones in the restaurant. Due to Covid the Sunday Brunch buffet was closed but we were happy to order ala cart.

Two of us ordered the Belgian waffles, two of us ordered the teriyaki chicken and I ordered the chicken salad.

The restaurant served pita chips and pimento cheese as a free appetizer and it was tasty!

The food had large portions and we had plenty of leftovers for home.

The family’s favorite part was watching the alligators and turtles! It was like visiting a zoo dinner show!

Everything about it was great. Our server was amazing, we even told the manager how incredible it was when he popped by the table. Our food was delicious, generous portion and the filet my girlfriend got was truly one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Don’t hesitate to try this place and head outside to see all the turtles and alligators after dinner!

The food is good but not as good as the food at their sister restaurant The Chesapeake House. It would be nice if they offered different sides from which to choose.
