This was a nice choice for a quite family Easter Dinner. The food was amazing and super fresh. Everyone at the table ate every bite of every dish. The service was attentive and polite. I would dine here again to try offerings from the everyday menu since a only a holiday menu was available this time. The views were fantastic outside.

We were celebrating my friend's 62nd birthday. I had made the reservation a week before we arrived in the Myrtle Beach area not knowing what to expect. It was AWESOME! Great atmosphere, great food and our server, Joshua, was very patient with all of our questions and special eating requirements. Brought my friend to tears (the good kind), when he brought out a most delicious Peanut Butter pie as the ultimate finish to a very special evening.

Both had the prime rib which was cooked perfectly, unfortunately baked potato was not an option the evening we went, so chose the au gratin instead which was not as good as an accompaniment. We were given an excellent table with an ocean view. Our waiter was well versed on dinner as well as drink recommendations. Our experience came in @ $100 including one beer each, shared dessert, and coffee & tip.

Always on the lookout for great restaurants in Myrtle Beach, SC, we went for the first time during Restaurant Week. In addition to our party of three there was only one other occupied table in the restaurant. Two of us order the "Surf and Turf" entrée and one ordered the pasta dish. The pasta dish was delicious and deserving of the reputation that Vintage Twelve has of a fine restaurant. The "Surf and Turf" entrée, on the other hand, was a disappointment. The filet medallions, ordered medium rare for both orders, were dry and overcooked. The sauce, which was served on the side, was cold. The shrimp were done very nicely. When there is virtually no one in the restaurant except for two tables I would expect the food from the kitchen to be superb. You only get one chance to make a good first impression, and I must say that our visit to Vintage Twelve was a disappointment. I would not recommend this restaurant to my friends.

We were at Vintage 12, located in the Embassy Suites Hotel in Kingston Plantation, on Christmas Day, at which time they had a fixed price menu. The food selections were few, but were wonderfully prepared and of the highest caliber. The regular menu selections offered on regular business days are extensive, as is their wine list. The restaurant boasts an oceanfront setting, which is quite enjoyable, and makes for a nice setting for any occasion. The food and drink are upscale and it is reflected in the upper level prices. If you desire a quiet, scenic and or romantic restaurant, and are willing to spend a little extra for great food and service, then I recommend Vintage 12 as a splendid location for your outing.

We come here every time we come to the beach because we typically really enjoy the food. This time was pretty disappointing. The server didn’t know the menu, didn’t provide a wine service for the wine we ordered, could t make a recommendation on wine, and just lacked the professionalism for that level of dining. For a dinner that was over $200, I expect the server to have some sort of idea what he is doing and that wasn’t the case. We may have to change this as a beach tradition.

The food was decent but over priced in comparison to other options. When paying $30 for shrimp and grits, you should not have to hand dig out all the shrimp to remove tails or $35 for fresh catch with bones. The “tower” appetizer was $40 and included 6 raw oysters, 6 jumbo shrimp cocktail and 6 mini crab claws. It was also supposed to come out with mussels and an array of sauces (it came out with a massive heap of horseradish and cocktail sauce). Not too impressed with what was supposed to be fine dinning. Skip the trip. The “beautiful sceanic view” is obstructed by a window panel divider. It could easily be fixed by using high top tables.

This restaurant is a complete waste of space in this hotel. Great view from a void should be its name. The sparse menu lists today's catch at market price. When I asked the waitress what the catch today is she told me "we don't have one" then I asked if there were any specials and she said "yeah we have some type of sliders but they aren't very good!!" This location needs to be completely revamped. It's location right off the lobby facing the ocean has so much unrealized potential. Asain fusion? Sushi? Craft beers/martinis? Even a little nightclub would be better then this place. Someone at Hilton Corporate needs to step up and make these changes. This current situation is an embarrassment. It was a Saturday night at seven in June at a full hotel and only 3 tables were occupied! Hello!!

The dinner was our wedding dinner with family. Although Lilly and Ted were very friendly and attentive the delivery of our food was unacceptable. My wife and I had our salads eaten by the time the rest of our family received there salads. Then the main course was totally unacceptable for time delivery. Our one family member finally received his meal after the other 10 of us had eaten our meals and the plates were being cleaned off the table. Then the desserts took an unusual amount of time to be served. The excuse we were given is that the kitchen was small and that they were working on getting this corrected.
This is excuse was exactly that....an excuse. This was our wedding dinner I am seriously disappointed with the timing of the food delivery and given no options once we expressed our dissatisfaction with the restaurant.

Vintage 12 has a diverse menu, but the food presentation does not match expectations. I ordered the wedge salad and it was presented as an iceberg Cobb. The server was quirky, but at times was judgmental about the choices we made ordering. The restaurant was very quiet the night we went where there were only 2 other tables that night. The food was not the quality I was expecting for the price paid.

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.

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.

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.
