Vintage Twelve at Kingston Plantation Resort Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
I recently hosted a dinner for ten. We were greeted very professionally, and shown our table. The staff had been so kind as to have connected several tables to together to enable easier conversations. A very nice treat.
Appetizers were offered. Several ordered to their individual tastes, but in addition we ordered the Sea Food Tower. Absolutely spectacular! Lots of crab claws, oysters, clams, HUGE shrimp, horseradish, cocktail sauce, and lots of fresh limes and lemons, all over three tiers and lots of crushed ice. Magnificent.
The salads were very large. The wedge as almost a half a head of very crisp lettuce.
Our table had individually selected entrees of chicken, steak, prime rib, crab cakes, and the special of the evening – lamb chops! All were well presented and prepared appropriately. Everyone is still raving about the quality, quantity, and value.
Let us not forget to talk about the desserts! We ordered crème burlee, chocolate cookie in a skillet, fruit, and strawberry shortcake. Again, nice presentation, and VERY tasty.
We will definitely return…
I booked this place for my husband's 39th birthday with high hopes, based on the reviews. The decor and view were beautiful, but everything else was such a disappointment. We spent nearly $200 for the 4 of us, and (most) of the food was just plain bad. We ordered hushpuppies, fried green tomatoes and grilled oysters as starters. The tomatoes were bland, the hushpuppies were really nice, and the oysters were nothing like the menu suggested. They originally brought out raw oysters by mistake, and I'm pretty sure that they just took those and quick grilled them and brought them back.... for main course, my husband got their prime rib. A huge portion, but definitely overcooked. I got the scallops and pepperdelle pasta and it was really bad. The scallops had nice flavor, but they were lukewarm, and the pasta was cold and already had that hard coating on them like they were sitting out for awhile. It made no sense, especially since we were literally the ONLY table there. I should have said something while we were there...to have spent that much and to eat unappealing food just makes me so angry.
This is a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was great. We had 6:45 pm dinner reservation on a Wed night. The dining room was fairly empty. And the view of the ocean was spectacular.
The appetizers (Flatbread and Fried Green Tomatoes) were delicious. Our five entrees (Ravioli, Short Ribs, Pork Chop, Filet Mignon and Tenderloin with Twin Shrimps) were all delicious also. And the bread was very hot when delivered.
The various dishes were a little pricey. And the valet parking was troublesome because it took too long to get someone to bring back the car. But otherwise I was very happy with our evening at this restaurant.
Seven friends visited Vintage Twelve to celebrate wedding anniversaries. We were not disappointed. Our server, Tara, was excellent and very knowledgeable regarding the menu. You have a choice of entrees with included sides or ala cart selections. Our selections were the pork tenderloin with shrimp (excellent and enough for a second meal); shrimp and grits, which three of the ladies and one of the guys (refusing to share), raved about and one couple opting for the petite filet. My wife and I also shared a wedge salad which was very good. Topping off the meal, Vintage Twelve surprised us with a couple of Happy Anniversary deserts which we all shared.
This is a great restaurant for a special dinner with a great ocean view.
Alex from Buffalo was fantastic- great service - funny guy!
Great customer service and above and beyond recommendations and putting up with me.
Tim from Canada was equally awesome.
I requested special dinner requests - no butter on the fish etc.
The chef delivered - the grilled halibut and collard greens were so delicious. Oh, if you are going to eat bread anywhere - eat it here! Again, chef was a champion of le pan.
Great wine selection, easy and scrumptious night with beautiful ocean views.
Spot on evening - exactly what I was hoping. Thank you!
After reading some of the reviews, I was nervous. But this meal was pretty good. We had shrimp cocktail (huge, delicious shrimp), the Caesar salad for me (liked it), and crab cakes (just OK)...then my husband had the prime rib special which he liked and my daughter and I each had the filet mignon, which was delicious. The only thing I'd say was that I wish the waitress told us that the sides were for sharing...because we both got the mashed potatoes and we could have just split one. Overall, a satisfying meal.
The fish entrees are excellent and reasonably priced. However, the Caesar salad and grilled oysters were less impressive. The oysters were $22 for 8! That's a bit much and they had broken shell pieces in each tiny oyster. The oven heated bread they bring out is delicious and the cream brûlée desert was perfect. Lastly, you'll have a nice view of the beach if you dine before dark. So, I'd go again, but don't get the oysters or order much wine.
This was our first time in the Myrtle Beach area and were looking for a nice place for dinner. As usual, checked open table and found this. It's in the Embassy Suites, a nice hotel but in a quiet resort area...we essentially had the entire restaurant to ourselves. That surprised me a bit but the view is wonderful, the setting elegant and the food was very good.
The meal started out with the restaurant not only not having the wines they listed on their wine list but the staff indicated they had not ever heard of it. The evening went down hill from there. My wife ordered the filet and although the taste was good the portion was less than described in the menu. I ordered the salmon, which is typically OK in most restaurants. The fish was cooked to a point where it was crunchy. When I pointed this out to the server the response was, "Oh I am sorry. Let me see if we can get this taken off the bill." Are you kidding, "let me see if I can get this taken off the bill". Very poor performance from start to finish.
worst dining experience ever! i unfortunately have no good words to say about the experience. the service was horrible, the food terrible, and thank god for beer and managers reception afterward. save your money and you can dine anywhere else in myrtle/ north myrtle including burger king for a better gourmet meal.
I ordered the rack of lamb (medium). It cam out of the kitchen almost rare. I asked my waitress to take it back so that the chef could cook it to the correct temperature. When she returned it to my table it was over cooked. Almost like shoe leather. My waitress was very nice. She removed the item from my check. She asked if I would like to have them prepare another rack, but I declined.
The packaging is better than the product in this case. Finding the restaurant is difficult unless you're a guest at the adjoining hotel as there is no external signage to let you know that you're anywhere close to it. While the wine and bourbon menu were nice, the cut of meat if ordering beef certainly are undeserving of their pricing.
After spotting we were only 1 of 3 reservations on a Saturday evening, things looked grim early in the dinner adventure. Where to begin...The two of us were the only patrons in the entire 50 seat establishment, and had two servers, neither of which paid much attention to our table.
Server brought us two small rolls and some infused butter attempt, then abruptly took it away from the table without asking if we would like two more with our meal....????
We ordered two coffees, and asked about how many scallops were served on the appetizer, she thought 4, but for $16 we decided to have the crab cakes. 30 minutes later (gave them a 5 minute head start, then began my LG phone stopwatch)....here she comes to the table with an order of 3 scallops as our appetizer....WRONG. Oops, we will hurry a crab cake out to you shortly. 15 minutes later, and under cooked...never finished baking..only seared on top/bottom. Our $28 entree - A catch of the day, Golden Tile Fish, was a 3" diameter tiny filet,sitting on basic orzo....with 5 pieces of asparagus....WOW...for $28 remember. She had the only vegetarian dish on the menu for a whopping $22 dollars: A portabella mushroom cap, three slices of tomato, and 8 slices of zucchini......LAME.
Coffee was Douwe Egberts liquid product, (we know our coffee) so no brewing required...but we had to ask for more every time.
Food was only average, kids size portions, and now approaching 75 minutes into the meal....we had to ask the server what the dessert options were. After ordering two creme brulee (which were also tiny ramekins) I asked how long she had worked there.....11 months. Is it always empty (still the only two folks in the entire restaurant) on Saturdays in February ?
The check was brought out to us on a warped mini-clipboard (no fancy black plastic guest check holder) and we were explained that we were locals. No discount offered, and bill was over $76 for 2 folks....and still hungry. With tip, went over $92.
I came out for my birthday. The waiter seated us and gave us the restaurant week menu. We had already looked at the menus and had decided on what we wanted just to have the waitress tell us that restaurant week ended the day before. Not honoring what we wanted and just said that they no longer had any of those food to serve. My date and I looked at one another like ok...I guess we'll look again on another menu. We ordered our food at 7:34 and got it about 8:15/8:20 good thing we ordered appetizers or else we would have been really frustrated for waiting so long. It was our first time. I'll definitely try it again before crossing it completely out.
Ate here for New Years Eve. They had a special menu for the occasion. Wait staff were very friendly, effecient, knowledgeable. My four course meal consisted of shrimp chowder, pork belly, fillet, and chocolate cheesecake. Everything was very good. If there was a dish I thought fell short, it would be the cheesecake. Overall our dinner was memorable.
Went on Christmas Day night and they served there Christmas Dinner Menu. My wife and I had the Steak and Lobster. 4 course meal for $55 per person. The salad, appetizer, and dessert were great. Had to send both steaks back as they were BOTH over-cooked. One steak had to be re-cooked twice as they ruined it the second time as well. Service was very slow. It took 10-15 min to get any bread each time we asked for it. Ambience was great. The taste of the food wand quality was not comparable with the price. Very over rated
