We love Vintage Twelve. We have stayed at The Embassy Suites for many years but did not try Vintage Twelve until the last three visits. we have not been disappointed. Every meal has been great. The atmosphere is what we were looking for. Yes. It’s expensive. But we know that going in and are prepared for the expense. It’s convient because we are staying there. But for a really nice night out or special occasion try Vintage Twelve.

We visited during restaurant week. The menu was okay but the food was not. Six of our neighbors had gone there the previous night and had the same opinion. The onion soup was good but very sweet. The grilled romaine was good also. Two of us had the steak and shrimp entree. The steak was half grizzle and fat. It almost seemed to have been steamed instead of grilled (very grayish and limp and very tough). I asked to exchange my sweet potatoes for the collard greens but was told that the chef would not make any changes. We were 1of 3 tables that were dining there that night. The other meals (1pork entree and an off the menu filet mignon were okay also). We ordered a bottle of wine and they didn't have it so the 1 and only waiter on that night, brought us an already opened bottle he claimed was better and would charge us the same price as the one we ordered. Again okay, as well as the desserts . The bill was very high for what we had. One wine, one beer, and four entrees with tip and tax was $250.00 for four of us. We will not be returning any time soon.

Restaurant Week menu, ribeye and shrimp cooked just right. Same with grouper. Creme Brulle out of this world. Food arrived promptly. In fact seemed as if we were rushed out, request for coffee or... after dinner apparently not heard. Just given checks.

we picked this place, one of a dozen featured in the MB area for SC Restaurant Week, 1/11-1/22, because of the menu-it seemed unique. I made res, requesting a window table, because i know the dining room faced the ocean. when we arrived, friendly hostess checked off our name-there was only two res. Then she seated us at a deuce, while 3 fourtops were unoccupied along the window. I mentioned my request for a window table, and she immediately moved us.
We added grilled oysters to our 3 course, $30 meal and ordered a bottle of wine. It was out, so she substituted another French rose' for the same price-good. However, she picked up the wine glasses to pour and her hand covered the label. Wine was good, but i looked at the 2 white wine glasses and saw they were different, one was taller and slimmer than the other! I didn't expect Riedel, but it was a little much. Food was satisfactory, especially French Onion Soup and grilled Romaine. Grouper was very good, as were veggies. There were 2 desserts offered for this special Restaurant week menu, but they were out of one, so the Creme Brulee' was OK.

Would NOT recommend this restaurant. We went with friends for restaurant week and the service and food were both awful. Spent $80 on the bill for steaks that were as thin as a slice of pizza and were very over cooked. If that is a representation of their restaurant I won’t ever go back. Not worth the money. Don’t waste your time!

To begin, finding the restaurant was a little difficult as it is inside an Embassy Suites all the way in the back of a large gated golf property (Kingston Plantation). We eventually figured it out with a little trial and error.

Second, their website never listed a price fixe menu for Christmas Day. They had an Easter menu posted, but none for Christmas, so I expected to be ordering from the ala carte menu; which would have been a lot better for my family.

The $55 Christmas menu was a bit limiting for my group:
1st: Squash Soup or Salad
2nd: Shrimp Cocktail or Blackened Oysters
3rd: Prime Rib, Filet, Grouper, or Fried Scallops
4th: Snowman Ganache, warm Rice Pudding, Creme de Mint Ice Cream Parfait

Overall, the food was "good" but lacking in a few ways. My salad was fine, but nothing special. The oysters were delicious but the toast points served with it were huge and not what I expected. The grouper was wonderful and the grits served with it were surprisingly great. But the snowman ganache dessert was a disaster. Two giant truffles, stacked as a snowman, were impossible to eat. The outer white chocolate layer was way too much and overpowered the tiny chocolate core. It was so cute, but a sad end to the meal.

My son wished the shrimp cocktail had more than three shrimp in it -- took him 3 seconds to eat. He thought his prime rib was too fatty and he barely ate it, which is odd for the carnivore he is. And he thought the Creme de Mint parfait was lacking mint. It was also odd that they served it in a tall thin parfait glass but didn't have long spoons to use to get the ice cream out of the bottom of the glass. Poor planning by the chef there...

While we enjoyed the food for the most part, we will not return to this restaurant again. I do wonder if the experience would have been better with their regular ala carte menu.

It was off season at the beach front hotel it’s in ,so it was very empty, just us do to this options were less than usual . They did not have prime rib or any rose’ wine, they told my husband they were out of tuna so he ordered a different fish , then the waitress ended up bringing him both dishes. and said he could have both. The service was good and the quality of the food was good. Quite pricey but we had a coupon from the hotel.

A few discrepancies with our order from the kitchen but our server was excellent and rectified the problems. Over priced dessert menu!

The staff is spectacularly friendly and accommodating. Really. Try it. It's got an elegant feel and the people who work there could not be nicer. Try it if you're in the hood.

First, the good news. The manager on duty recognized that we were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and we had a very nice table with an unobstructed view of the ocean. But there was nothing special about our service from our waitperson or in terms of any complimentary amenities (e.g., glass of sparkling, amuse bouche, special occasion dessert, etc.) -- like we had from Café Amalfi (a sister property) 2 days earlier. The scallops were not seared and the appetizer crab cakes were very small. At the end of the night, we spent almost $100 for an average meal with a spectacular view and a personal greeting from the manager on duty. We don't plan to return. If our travel brings us back to Myrtle Beach, we will go to Café Amalfi instead.

This restaurant is at the Embassy resort so you may have to check in at a security gate upon arrival at the resort. The food and service were great. The view was also great. We had a early dinner and it was very quiet when we arrived but it was getting quite loud as we were leaving and more tables were being seated.

Vintage Twelve is located inside the Embassy Suites Hotel at Kingston Plantation Resort. That was not noted in the description, so it took a little looking around to find it once we arrived in the vicinity.

While the menu was creative, the server assigned to our table wasn't well-informed about preparation, ingredients, etc. His description of what to expect on the plate was inadequate. I ordered the scallops, but did not order any sides based on his description of the plate.

The saving grace was having a table overlooking the beach and the Atlantic Ocean.

This was our splurge dinner while in Myrtle Beach. We were not disappointed. Our male server was outstanding. He explained all the dishes and made great recommendations. He made us feel like we were the only customers in the restaurant. My wife and I both had the scallops. Excellent! Crab cakes starter and desserts were also wonderful. Only down side is it is somewhat hard to find. If we lived in Myrtle Beach, Vintage 12 would be our go to place for special occasions.

Disappointing. The hostess appeared annoyed when we arrived and went to get her manager when we assured her we had a reservation. We were seated by the night manager and never saw her again. The wait staff was tied up busing their own tables so it was several minutes before we were greeted by our server. The wine selection was decent but overpriced. The Caesar salad was a small head of romaine (basically a large head of romaine with most of the leaves pulled off to make it small; I'd have trimmed the stalk to make that less obvious) drizzled with dressing. The "rosemary fingerling potatoes" were just plain red potatoes chopped up and boiled; I did manage to find one sprig of dried rosemary but they were otherwise unseasoned. The mashed potatoes were a gooey cheesy blob that had to be cut because you couldn't address them with a spoon; I think they had to have been a few hours old and rewarded. My husband's steak was free because it was rancid. We didn't bother with dessert. The night manager did not come back out to address any of these issues, but we did talk to the day manager the next day. He seemed upset about our experience and assured us they would be addressing all of our concerns at their daily manager meeting. For now, I recommend you go somewhere else for your nice dinner out. Maybe check back in a month or two when they get things smoothed out.
