My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at The Library, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The friendly and unpretentious staff provided an evening that we will remember for years to come. We began our experience at the bar where Joshua, the bartender, and Wayne set the tone in their welcoming conversation. Our server Trey continued the theme of class and unpretentious service throughout the remainder of the evening. Our menu selections were splendid. My wife's selection of filet and cold water lobster tail was prepared to perfection, and my selection of duck l'orange was outstanding. In my opinion, this is unquestionably the best fine dining restaurant in the Myrtle Beach area, and I look forward to the next visit to this wonderful establishment.

My husband and I went to The Library as a wedding present, it was wonderful.
The food, the ambiance, the service were all impeccable. Some of the reviews online indicated the waiter would try to "upsell"but we found that was not the case at all, the suggestions Josh E made were spot on. We really enjoyed ourselves and looking forward to our next visit.

Great experience - seafood sampler was excellent; the library mushrooms were very good; the she crab soup was amazing; followed by great entrees: halibut and filet. We really like the new location as it is closer to Cherry Grove where we live. We will be back.

The food was very good, but not worth the price. We went to Wicked Tuna the night before and paid around the same amount for fresher [sea]food and tastier drinks. The service was excellent, which made a big difference. Our server, Joshua, was highly knowledgeable about the menu and how everything was prepared, and he was generally a nice person to talk to. The motif of the restaurant was neat, but save for the speak-easy "hidden" room located behind a book case, the ambiance was very underwhelming. Personally, I wouldn't go back unless they SIGNIFICANTLY lowered their prices.

First of all, this is not an inexpensive restaurant. They even charge for the water. However, that being said, the food and drink are first rate and the desserts out of this world. I can't afford this place on anywhere near a regular basis, but for a special occasion it can't be beat. I had my daughter and her family visit me for a week, and on the last night I wanted to take them someplace special. I made a reservation at the Library and was not disappointed. Service was excellent and the food the best I have had here so far. The final bill was high but I knew it would be going in. For a special occasion this is the place. We heartily recommend the Duck, the Steak and Lobster platter and the Cherries Jubilee as well as the Blueberry Martini!

Nice upscale restaurant with very efficient and attentive service. Wife had a filet and I had the tips. Tips were over-seasoned and both over priced. Wife had a filet and for what we paid for it, we could have gotten two at longhorns which frankly are twice as good too.

The atmosphere was good but the expectation is for the servers to upsell you on what you should order for dinner. It is expensive for the class of food. It was nice but I wouldn't really recommend it. There are many other upscale restaurants in the area that are better priced with food that is worthy of the same rating or better.
