    Our waiter was spectacular. I ordered the the bone in fillet Mignon and it could’ve been cooked a little bit more rare but since it’s cooked and served on a skillet I understand. Overall great dinner.

    SeaBlue Restaurant & Wine BarResponded 1 day ago

    Managing expectations. Steak was cooked to the ordered temperature of medium. Steak is served sizzling in a 700 degree cast iron skillet with brown butter. The steak will continue to cook. The chef recommends ordering the bone in filet one full temperature less than normally ordered. Eating from the outside edge inward will result in a perfect bite through the entire steak. We will reiterate this to the serve staff at pre-shift. Cheers.

    They were so welcoming from the moment we walked in. The server (Randal?) was absolutely awesome. The drinks were very high end and delicious. The food was delicious and atmosphere was great considering the renovations. But the best part was our server and his attention to detail. Thank you. Will be back

    Such a wonderful experience. We shared an appetizer of foie gras, each had a speciality salad and both had steaks. The preparation and presentation of all the food was beautiful. The steaks were by far the best quality I’ve had in town! My only regret is I didn’t save any room for dessert. I can not wait to go back!

    The colossal crabcake was the size of a scallop

    SeaBlue Restaurant & Wine BarResponded on May 8, 2022

    Colossal refers to the size of the lump we use, not the actual size of the crab cake, Our crab cakes are 3.5oz and priced well under current blue lump crab prices….We actually lose money on the crab cakes because the meat is so expensive. Most restaurants have removed crab cakes or lump crab off the menu. Backfin being the cheapest, and Colossal being the most expensive. Colossal Lump Crab is over $60/per pound. 16oz are In a pound…Do the math…2 Star review for someone not informed BS!

    Located in a small shopping area, not conspicuous. Very nice ambiance. Pricing keeps out the riff raff. That's what we value as well as the food. Personal attention, good tableside manners, and let's not forget-the chef. Excellent choices of ingredients, very intelligent seasoning and preparation. French cuisine influence shows. Don't pass this one by!

    My wife and I went here to celebrate our anniversary and it was a great choice! The food was high quality and prepared very well. My wife (and I enjoyed) her Seafood Risotto while I had the Chef's Pasta of the Moment. That pasta dish was a lobster ravioli with a crab meet topping. All dishes were prepared very well. Our server Sean was great and knowledgeable with all aspects of their menu. I believe this was some of the best quality food we have had at any restaurant in the area, and on par with other high-end places we have enjoyed in metropolitan cities.

    Our visits have always been exceptional however there was a table of 4 which as the evening went on, their obnoxious loudness got worse and worse. A lovely evening truly turned into a stressful one. Not a reflection of the restaurant but just 4 rude obnoxious people who had no consideration for anyone around them. A true shame. Food and service excellent as always.

    Stayed in Myrtle Beach for a week of vacation. Overall we were pretty disappointed in the restaurant scene. Read about SeaBlue and thought we’d risk it. So glad we did! This is a fine ding experience from the service to the food and more. We started with the charred Caesar which was delicious. Then had the Black Grouper over French green beans with a beurre blanc sauce. So fresh, so simple and just amazing. My husband sampled the short rib ravioli and porcini mushroom agnolotti for his main. So good!! This restaurant is very expensive, but the quality of the food is worth it .

    Travel to the Myrtle Beach area once a year to golf. This restaurant has great food. However the prices on the entrees are super high. Our waiter told us all.of the specials. The only fish option on the menu was a seafood risotto and I think there was a salmon option. The special was a local grouper served with green beans. I don't ask the prices and we were not told. The waiter had a huge smile.when I ordered the grouper. Well the bill came and it was $60 for the grouper. Outrageous. Would've been about half the price where I live ...in the NYC metro area ..in other words, a more expensive area. The charred ceasar salad which I love really wasn't charred this time, and I think I counted 4 measly croutons on the plate. Everything is very "measured" at this restaurant. The 10oz Lobster tail was $95 on the menu....$95! To sit in a strip mall in NMB! I think they are clearly trying to make up for covid. Not worth the price.

    SeaBlue Restaurant & Wine BarResponded on April 3, 2022

    Dear Guests, May I correct your review. 10oz Maine Lobster tail $79 includes a potato & veg. Fresh day boat black grouper cost $800 for 25 pounds = 38 9oz portions which is $21 per portion. NY your probably getting IQF (frozen) grouper from Asia for less than 1/2 the price. One would expect to come to the beach for fresh seafood, especially fresh grouper. Not trying to make up for covid, trying to survive…other entrees in the 50-60 range. No salmon. Le Bernardin NY 4X price. Value 4 our quality

    We always enjoy Sea Blue. Impeccable service and great food. We have traditionally done the chefs tasting menu with wine pairing. Expensive but delicious. Tonight we ordered off the menu for the first time. We shared everything. Though everything was tasty, the expense seemed exorbitant. We were probably only $100 ($425) short of the tasting menu with wine pairing and we shared a salad, steak, lobster tail and a bottle of wine with a cocktail each and a shared dessert.
