One of our favorite restaurants when we come tp Myrtle beach. Food is always delicious. The short ribs were cooked to perfection. Our server, Lori, was excellent! We enjoyed our evening.

This was our third time eating at SeaBlue Restaurant and Wine bar..We went on Thanksgiving night. My husband ordered the grouper and I tried the short ribs. Both were delicious. For dessert I had the chocolate cheesecake with Oreo cookie crust and pecans while my husband got the bread pudding with cranberries and ice cream. Huge portions that I ate the rest of my cheesecake the next night. Service was great. Can’t remember her name but waitress was originally from New York. Very friendly and knowledgeable with the menu. Highly recommend!

Service was exceptional. Pricing was a bit over the top. Three adults 2 ordered filets and other ordered the special. One bottle of wine and 2 desserts. Steaks are alacarte so one side each and the bill was $320.

There was nothing that jumped out at me that commanded that price.

Fantastic food, great service and knowledgeable staff, 5 stars all around!

This is the nicest fine dining we've found in the MB/NMB area and it really should have a Michelin rating as it certainly rivals some of the Michelin restaurants we've enjoyed in big cities, just at a more affordable small city price.

Don't understand the extreme pricing on everything... for the 2 of us, which included 4 moderately priced drinks, 2 appetizers, 2 entrées, 1 side and 1 desert. My Delmonico steak was tasty. My wife's seafood dish was disappointing only because the scallops were too salty. We did inform our server to forward this information to the Chefs. We are not looking for any type of compensation, just thought to share our dining experience with you.

I buy quality food products, which are expensive. Wholesale costs have increased 35-100% the past 6 months. Labor has increased 35%. Dishwashers $16-$17/hr. Qualified chef's above $20/hr. U8 Scallops are almost $6 each. I had 2 managers on the floor, neither knew anything about the scallops. Your server is new to serving, SeaBlue is her first serving job. Our scallops are fresh daily and one of our guest favorites. $236 was your bill, the rest is tax & tip. $100 was product cost, not much profit

The food is fantastic! We had foie gras and gourmet ham & cheese for appetizers, then seafood risotto and the grouper special for main courses. The appetizers were very tasty and wonderful. The seafood risotto was mainly seafood with lobster risotto. YUM! The grouper was steak size and quite tasty! The desserts were also fantastic. The wine list is extensive. When we were indecisive on wine, our server recommended a new wine, not yet on the list, and it was perfect! They gave us a private table as we were celebrating our anniversary. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

We were earlier than most. The staff was busy preparing for the night. Staff promptly seated us and our server was over immediately. We had pre-diiner drinks, appetizers, seafood main courses and amazing and interesting desserts. Everything was of exceptional quality and taste. Our server was friendly and patient. We loved the full experience and hope to dine there again before we leave Myrtle Beach.

Had a wonderful dinner dining at the bar. The cocktails were the best that I have had prepared in this area. They even have unique seasonal cocktail offerings too. The dining experience is one that you will talk about for days on end. The food is perfectly prepared and amazingly fresh. The chefs obviously take pride in their dishes that they prepare. They also have an in house pastry chef so make sure you save room for one of her speciality desserts. If you enjoy quality fresh food I highly recommend you dine here. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing evening out! I can’t wait to dine again!

Price of quality ingredients has doubled over the past 6 months. We have used the same level of ingredients since 2008. We have not compromised food quality, service, or any other aspect. From the drizzle of 12yr Tondo Balsamic, to the USDA Prime 45 Day Dry Aged Beef trimmed to specs. People don’t notice attention to detail nor quality from establishment to establishment. The subtotal of your bill reflects a 40-45% raw product cost. Everything is great until i got the check. SMH!

Nice restaurant- good menu and selection but very expensive. Portions are small which is fine but the value is not there. A few bucks less for the drinks, apps and all the entrees and it would still be expensive but justified with current food prices. Really good service and cute place.

Our offerings are severely underpriced, we are running a crazy food/product cost percentage in 2021. You could not hire a chef and duplicate this menu at home for less money than what we offer. Google the ingredients and you will see….These are not grocery store, Publix, or Fresh Market ingredients. These are high end restaurant ingredients that are reserved for the Top 100 or so restaurants in the US. Cheers.

This is pretty next-level for Myrtle Beach and the service, drinks, and food were great. I’m happy to shell out for great culinary experiences but I thought it was a bit expensive. I’ve eaten at Michelin restaurants for less.

It’s not rocket science… It’s 2021. 1/3…1/3…1/3…Excluding USDA Prime Beef the menu price reflects 1/3 for product, 1/3 for labor, and 1/3 for overhead…Hopefully we have a couple dollars left over for us at the end of the night. This is not a 503c non-profit. Divide the menu price by 3 and that is the product cost in the back door without labor and overhead. FYI the USDA Prime steaks are only 2 times…Please feel free to email me at knorcutt@seablue.biz for food invoices. Would be glad to share.

Love SeaBlue! I don't get to go often but whenever I get a chance it's always my first choice. This evening we celebrated a birthday. We sat in the love booth. Our server Lori was amazing. She was attentive but not overbearing. We had the Porcini Angoloti, duck, and the Tiramisu style warm cookie sundae. All fabulous! You can tell the kitchen takes pride in the dishes they put out. Thank you SeaBlue for another wonderful dining experience!

First of all, Shannon is an extraordinary server. She is committed to her guests having a wonderful dining experience. The heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad, which was a special, was absolutely delicious. For my main course, I ordered the Dover sole, which was exceptional. I am not a bread pudding fan, but the chocolate bread pudding with vanilla ice cream (and strawberries) was the only chocolate item on the dessert menu that night, so I ordered it. It was good, but I am sure that those people who like bread pudding would have enjoyed it more. I will also mention that the dipping oil for the bread had excellent flavor.

Outstanding experience from start to finish! My husband had the duck and I had the short rib, recently added to the menu. These dishes, combined with fabulous appetizers, pinot noir (Laetitia), and shared dessert (bread pudding), made for a memorable meal.
We visit Myrtle Beach twice a year, and from here on in, SeaBlue will be at the top if our must-go-to list. Our compliments to the owners, our waiter Shaun, and the entire staff.
