Really nice place for a special occasion. Food is outstanding and service is even better. A little heavy on the wallet but given farm to table etc and the awesome taste - all worth it.

Food was very good, however, very over priced!
I have had a better meal, in better restaurants on the grand strand for 30% to 40% less expense.
I wii not be returning to SEABLUE!

There for our anniversary. Best food in Myrtle Beach. The foie gras was prepared over toasted brioche with fig and a bed of caramelized onions. Had 1993 Yquem with it. Entree was Fruits of the Sea and risotto. It was prepared well and contained scallops, shrimp and a nice size lobster. The risotto was al dente!

Awesome Experience. If you have not dined here before:
Highly recommend the Chefs tasting menu.
Every course is delicious and it makes for an exceptional experience/dinner. Our food was prepared to perfection and the presentation just adds to the experience. Service is excellent. One of the best wine select in Myrtle Beach. Fine dining at its best.
I would highly recommend.

A quiet retreat for our 40+ year wedding anniversary. We were seated in a pleasant curtained 'room' - a most thoughtful surprise. The staff were friendly and present when needed but were never overpowering. Recommendations for food and wine were accurate and most helpful. From the complimentary flute of Champagne to our dessert, everything was flawless.

SeaBlue is out "go-to" in Myrtle Beach, great food, great wine, great atmosphere... Ken and Tracy always take care of us (and every customer as far as we can tell) like they are the only diner there. Worth the trip if you want a great experience and special meal.

Incredible dining experience. I usually have to leave town to find a true big city fine dining experience. Lucky to have SeaBlue in North Myrtle Beach. The rest of the local spots just seem to fall short somewhere in the experience. SeaBlue is consistently superior in every aspect.

I realize that when you think of fine dining you do not think about Myrtle Beach but Sea Blue is as good as it gets. This was our second time at Sea Blue and it is a fantastic restaurant, great food, service and ambiance. Our lobster tail was cooked perfect, then we shared a filet that was excellent. You can view their wine list on line and its quite impressive. Also a very nice selection of wine by the glass. If you are in the area you must give it a try.

It's all about the food at this restaurant. You go guaranteed you'll have a good meal. The food is served in an intimate setting with a low buzz. Our waiter was knowledgeable and steered me in the right direction regarding red wine:). My friend had the pasta with grilled shrimp and I had the fruit of the sea. Yummy! My friend ordered the bread pudding which was stellar and I had the cheese cake with creme brulee topping, which was boring. The waiter asked about the dessert and took it back and removed it from the bill. All in all a nice evening.

This place is a true Gem away from the tourist section of Myrtle Beach. A short ride to North Myrtle Beach and well worth it. Greeted by the owner, the service was impeccable and food exemplary. We were 4 women on business from Connecticut. They made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed a fabulous meal. We will most certainly return when in the area again.

The food was good but not extraordinary but the prices sure were. Everything is extra, your meal doesn't come with sides or a salad that is all extra and 5 pieces of romaine lettuce with a tablespoon of dressing and 5 croutons doesn't make it worth $10. I had the filet and the cook was perfect and my husband got the cowboy rib eye and it was cooked perfect but the prices are way out there for the food you get. I'm comparing this to a highly rated restaurant in Charleston where we both had 90 day dry aged steaks with sides and a salad for less than an 8oz filet and rib eye with no sides yet paid more at Sea Blue.
