    Expensive, with $33 crab cake as an appetizer and rigid service protocols
    SeaBlue Restaurant & Wine BarResponded on April 3, 2024
    Dear Walter Cox, We are an expensive upscale restaurant serving ultra-high-quality ingredients in a master chef driven kitchen, hence the 5 stars awarded for food presentation & quality. Our crab cakes use only expensive jumbo lump and 99.9% crab meat and very little filler. We all have Google on our phones and can research the price per pound for jumbo lump crab meat and divide by 4 to get a 4oz. wholesale cost per cake. We are more than reasonable for the upscale product served. We prepare all items to order, so your full dinner order is required to enable our entire service team to flawlessly execute proper service to all guests in the dining room. We did make a $27 concession on the guests' wine choice as it was unclear which bottle was ordered. Hmmmm.

    We have been here several times before but not in several years. Greeting and service remain at a high level. Menu seems smaller and prices are MUCH higher than in the past. The food is excellent but portions are on the small side so it is possible to leave hungry after spending hundreds. Hard to say that you should rush here
    SeaBlue Restaurant & Wine BarResponded on March 28, 2024
    Dear Jon, Lots of things have change in the world since your last visit on Saturday October 6th, 2012. Just to refresh, your party of 2 shared a truffle ravioli pasta appetizer, a scallop appetizer as an entree, and the smaller portion seafood risotto as an entree, 2 cocktails, 2 glasses of wine for $160. The rest was sales tax and gratuity. As for the menu, it has evolved over the years to being more fresh and farm to table, but the availability of options has remained since 2008. The Evening you dined we had our full menu with about a dozen additional features. Pretty extensive for a fine dining restaurant. Cheers.

     I went to the SeaBlue restaurant last night on a date with my fiancé.  I cannot stress this enough about how good the food was, we have eaten at other fine dining restaurants in Charleston and Charlotte  and the sea blue restaurant was top-tier. However, the essence of fine dining was not totally there. Upon being sat we were given a paper menu with zero information regarding the restaurant and its history. For my fiancé and myself, we really enjoy learning the backstory in the history of fine dining restaurants, while we are enjoying the restaurant. I feel as that aspect of the fine dining was less then delivered upon. The server when going over the specials for the evening, was reading from a piece of paper. It just seemed odd that the server did not know the specials by heart as most fine dining restaurants typically do. I cannot express enough though, the food was excellent, it was the best fillet that you can get in Myrtle Beach by far. We will definitely return again. However, hopefully next time we aren’t sitting next to an ignorantly drunk table, where a man discussed his private parts out loud for majority of the night.

    This is an upscale, fine dining restaurant. Katie our server was excellent in answering any questions we had about the wine list and food selections. We were axparty of four. There were many special appetizers and main course dishes that she was able to tell us about in detail. Crusty hot bread with seasoned dipping sauce provided. The lobster appetizer was absolutely amazing and delicious. We had veal Chop, scallops, shrimp and steak dinners - all outstanding. We would definitely recommend this restaurant especially for special occasions.

    Had a delicious meal. Wedge salad large and flavorful, soup of the day was an outstanding mushroom, the grouper, a favorite, never disappoints, and the veal chop was perfectly cooked and served with an impressive risotta. The strawberry crème brûlée was a great ending to a 5 STAR EXPERIENCE! This is FINE dining!

    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.
