    Are you really serious!!!! and quote on the request when the guest made the reservation..."A private booth or room for a special reunion with sister and husband. Our spending will be over $400" Leisurely 3 hour dinner with cocktails, lobster tail escargot, salads, 8oz USDA Prime center cut filets all around with sides, desserts and coffees. $408 excluding tax and tip.

    Wow! SeaBlue was recommended to us by a friend and with high praise, and it surpassed our expectations. A special lobster appetizer was tremendous, and the PEI oysters were delicious. The lamb was prepared beautifully, as was the grouper. Benjamin provided us with wonderful service and conferred with the manager to resolve some questions Ihad about wines. We had a wonderful evening.

    Pleasant greeting upon arrival. Table was ready, seated immediately. Our server, Jason, was very professional, friendly, engaging, but not at all intrusive. The atmosphere is intimate, chic, and a little edgy (e.g., tasteful B/W prints of nudes on the walls and in the men's room). Really good music playing at a volume low enough to have a quiet conversation, but just high enough to mask overhearing adjacent table's conversations. We came for the winter prix fixe menu, which is a bargain! $49 for three wonderful courses (with cocktails, wine, tax and gratuity, just over $200 for two of us). The charred ceasar salad was literally the best I've ever had, anywhere. My wife had the tomato bisque soup which was awesome. Entrees were spot on - delicious short rib bolognese pasta and a perfectly prepared hanger steak. The dessert course was REALLY good. Every element was well plated and served professionally. Warm bread, excellent martinis, great wine selection, and a staff that seemed truly appreciative that we were dining with them. Even down to the bartender, several of the servers, and the hostess taking time to inspect and towel the cleaned wine glasses to be certain there were no smudges prior to returning them to the glass rack. Really impressive. At the top for Myrtle Beach area restaurants.

The food was exceptional. From the warm bread down to the fabulous deserts. Every course left us anticipating and wanting the next. By the end of the night with great service excellent food and charming atmosphere I left feeling somewhere between all that I must have received a massage too. Can’t wait for out next outing there!!

    Amazing food and culinary creativity by Chef Ken , front of the house is constantly on point due to Tracy’s eye and wonderful attentive service by Joe. The price fixe menu offering of three courses is an extreme value and a great way to experience Sea Blue if you haven’t had an opportunity before . Broccoli cheddar soup delicious and a huge portion, sea scallops were U8 grand size and cooked to perfection with asparagus risotto , blueberry blondie and cherry vanilla ice cream were superb created by in house pastry chef Amanda.

    There’s truly not much to say about our experience see Blue, except to say it was fabulous. The food was excellent and even better yet for the fixed menu, the selections were off the chart our service was great and there were several people there that checked on us and asked us how things were, we will definitely go back whenever we can

    Dinner was excellent. The staff is well versed in the menu, wine list and cocktails and is there to guide your dining experience. We noticed that they all work together seamlessly too. If you enjoy a first class dining experience we strongly suggest you go here. Reservations are suggested as it is a small quaint space and we are so glad we made reservations beforehand. Can not wait to go again.

    SeaBlue Restaurant & Wine BarResponded on January 19, 2024
    Unable to accommodate booth seating on a last minute request due to being very busy on a Thursday in January. Enough said! 1 Star Ambiance. We only have 3 booths and 16 tables total. Very small urban style boutique restaurant with a modern city vibe. If you would like a booth please request while making your reservation and plan accordingly. As always, booths are a request and not guaranteed. Booths are generally taken by VIP guests, Chef Tasting Menus, and our local regular diners that have dined with us 100’s of times during our 20 years Cheers, Chef Ken

    We really enjoyed our meal here from start to finish. We both chose from the prix fix January menu. The bread was incredible. My husband had the grouper and I had the hanger steak. Both were delicious and large portions. The appetizers were large and delicious. We finished up with coffee and the gelato, waffle dessert which was wonderful . Our waiter (Joe?) was great, very knowledgeable and personable.
