    This was an awesome experience. We were in town for a business trip. We ordered appetizers all the way through to dessert. The food was delicious, especially the steaks. They have a great wine list and the service was top notch. Highly recommend The Library.

    Great food and our lead Server Ryan was everything you want in customer service. Attentive, polite, funny and knowledgeable. Food was delicious and plenty of choices. We even took our unfinished wine bottle next door to the Piano bar and enjoyed listening to the piano player afterwards. Highly recommended.

    A pleasant diversion from the pub food we'd had all week. Our waiter, Brian, was very attentive and the meal moved along at a nice pace. Not too fast, not too slow. Most of the food was excellent with just a few items on the average side. Cocktail menu was varied and wine was a healthy pour. Will definitely visit again.

    Very nice restaurant and intimate. Only about 12 tables, so reservations should be made even on a Tuesday. Very good wine selection. Beef, fish, chicken, duck, Lobster, and Rack of Lamb, are among the offerings, Tableside Ceasar salad, She crab soup are good suggestions. The cheesecake was very good, Service is very attentive. Nice and Quiet, Don't bring your children- there will not be much for them. French style twists on some dishes. Specials are offered that are not on the everyday menu.

    While In Myrtle Beach , The Library is a must to dine . The seafood tower was amazing , the Caesars salad prepared table side was a nice compliment to the dinner. The Filet Mignon and Lobster were delicious. Bryan provided not only exceptional service, but was very informative regarding dinner choices . You won't be disappointed dining at this fine restaurant.

    This is old school fine dining. Exquisite food, impeccable service, quiet, leisurely. Outstanding in every respect. Based on reviews, we requested Ryan to be our waiter. After dinner, he gave me his business card which shows professional waiter as his title. Everything but my soup was prepared table side. Ryan handled the food and himself with style and grace. My companion ordered kitchen prepared choices. Ryan explained not only the preparation of the food but also the origin. He was a delightful addition to the food which was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. This past year I was able to dine at Maple and Ash, considered to be one of the finest restaurants in the country. The Library held its own and surpassed in ambiance. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough. Go! Be prepared for an evening of culinary delight.

    Truly an incredible fine dining experience! The food was wonderful and Bobby our server was so animated and friendly! We truly enjoyed all aspects of our meal here. My only complaint is the value. This ended up being the most expensive meal we have ever eaten, and while it was a great experience, I’m not sure it’s worth a few hundred dollars. All of the “features” aren’t priced out, so you don’t really know what you’re getting yourself into until the bill comes. If you have the money, definitely do it!

    The Library is always such a wonderful experience! Fantastic service, we love the tableside service for the Caesar salad, bananas Foster and cherries Jubilee. They also do steak Diane at the table, but we haven’t t tried that yet. The specials and other menu items have always enticed us in our several visits. Looking forward to our next time here!

    We like unique dining experiences and were not disappointed. Ryan was our server, and he was knowledgeable and attentive. As we are older, we don’t eat as much, so we split huge appetizer, entree and dessert. The kitchen was kind enough to plate one entree for two. Expensive but was worth it to us. Will return.

    First off, Beau was a great server. It was my wife’s first experience at the Library and I wanted to take her somewhere that I knew provided an outstanding experience. They did not disappoint! The Caesar salad, steak Diane and bananas foster were excellent. My wife enjoyed the escargot as well. Thank you for a great date night.

    There is no dining experience like it in Myrtle Beach. I’ve only gotten the level of quality and service in much bigger cities. Highlights are the unique variant of she-crab soup that reminds you of cold winter nights by the fire, and a rich decadent blueberry ice cream sundae. Dining at The Library is a must, at least once.

    If you enjoy first class service and fine dinning with the best food in town, then the Library is the place for you also. Ask for Bob as your server....he is tops. The steak, and the duck were super, everything was great. We highly recommend dinning at the Library, a little pricey, but well worth the cost!!!!!!!! Billy Roberts

    This is the best high end restaurant in myrtle. We live here and always come here. Forget any others. Best tableside filets, great bananas fosters, wonderful Malbec wines. You’ll will never be disappointed. Yes pricy but that’s what a good meal and good company and good service mean.

    Quality of food and service was superb. I have to offer a very negative opinion on pricing on one item. We ordered an appetizer ("Three-piece Seafood", containing a scoop of crab meat, 4 shrimp and three very small lobster tails). We were charged $75, not a typo, for that. I didn't ask the price so I will take some responsibility, but the price of that appetizer was almost as much as our two entrees, I was so shocked I felt if I said anything I would be angry. I said "yes" I would recommend but I will also offer some warning of what happened to us.

    Dining at the Library is a treat. It is very quiet, formally decorated, and waitstaff is very attentive and friendly. We were disappointed in the ceaser salad after hearing rave reviews about it. It is prepared table side, but with a premade dressing since they have to follow health department guidelines. We understand that but the dressing did not have much flavor, and no anchovies were added, or offered. We both had steaks. Mine was prepared in the kitchen as expected (medium rare), but my wife's entree prepared table side was overcooked (instead of medium rare it was medium). The steaks were flavorful. While a bit disappointed it is a treat to find such a place in Myrtle Beach and will revisit on our next trip there.

    Our server Ryan was wonderful, the food and wine was amazing. Asked for a more secluded area. Put into a private room for the two of us. So wonderful. I really don’t have a negative thing to say about anything, food and service was great. If I could leave a recommendation it would be to not keep a cooking/ salad cart in the private room with extra utensils. Other servers continued coming in grabbing silverware for their tables making it a little less romantic
