This was our second time. Our waitress Sharon is fabulous . She can’t do enough to please you. She made our Dirty Martini to perfection, I needed a little mor Vodka in mine, no problem. Our dinner was out of this world! New try was a shrimp appetizer, a little spicey but I want it as an entree. Our Filet , 10 Oz, of course was spectacular. Cooked perfectly. The prices are unbelievable. We also had a coupon from the Sunday paper for 30%! Our new big find. It’s a little secluded, inside a Bid hotel but definitely a good reason to look for it. Went with friends both times!
See you soon Sharon!

Service was great but disappointed with food quality. Our starter and dinner were too salty and salmon did not seem fresh. It was our anniversary and no one said anything until we were leaving the restaurant.

Waitress Sharon was fabulous, so accommodating. We both had the 10oz Filet Mignon, it was cooked perfectly. We switched out potatoes for extra veggies with no problem. Dessert was their specialty Bourbon Bread Pudding, OMG, can’t wait for that again. We tried it on a coupon but will go back over & over.

My wife and I celebrated our 51st anniversary with you. Sadly, this was our first time to your restaurant and we live close by !! It will not be our last. Food selections were wonderful. Sharon, our server was more than willing to work with us on selections. The rest of your staff came by and wished us a happy anniversary, which we thought was so nice. We realize, it was quiet !!!! Sunday before Thanksgiving? Food was wonderful, dessert divine.

Was looking for an upscale restaurant to end our long weekend in MB. While this was reviewed as upscale, it really wasn't. It worked out for us because we were really tired and not too hungry so we decided to go as is (not jeans, but not "business casual"). That was good as I would have been highly upset if I made an effort to dress (no one else was "dressed"). First, the location is horrible. It is in the basement of a hotel--creepy. Small and really more like a smallish hotel restaurant than what I would expect as an "upscale" restaurant. It has seen better days (carpet, chairs, etc. a bit warn). In any event we decided to split a Chicken Marsala dish which was very very good. Afterwords we said we probably could have eaten a whole meal each as it was that good. All in all, OK. But, I'd guess for a truly upscale dressy place, there are better options.

Quiet and elegant setting in an upscale hotel. Enjoyed one of the best renditions of shrimp and grits I have ever experienced. Cocktail could have been better. Why do so many bartenders insist on shaking a Manhattan so vigorously that the drink contains ice chips and tastes watery even when you order it straight up? Nonetheless, I was extremely pleased overall, as were my companions.

I've been vacationing in Myrtle Beach once or twice a year since 2010 and have tried many of the fine dining restaurants. This was probably the best meal I've had in MB. Every course exceeded expectations - from the freshly baked bread with herb & goat cheese infused olive oil, to the salad, entrees, and chef's variation of key lime pie. However, while the food deserves a 5 star rating, and our server was decent, the restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday night. It was a beautiful evening so my husband and I opted to dine outdoors. We were the only ones outside and rather than the hostess seating us at the table with the best view, she sat us at one of the two that had been set up. Additionally, while the food is excellent, the menu is extremely limited which is the primary reason I never chose to dine there before. Lastly, I would expect a restaurant with this caliber of food to offer a better wine selection.

My breakfast was served hot an exactly as I ordered...perfect eggs, hot, well toasted Buttered English muffin...crisp Applewood bacon...the only thing is that the home fries didn’t seem fresh and were soggy. Otherwise everything good. They made iced coffee. For us...and refilled it...I wish we could order lattes...the hotel serves Starbucks upstairs but not in the restaurant... service wonderful

Very disappointed in a restaurant we had heard was supposed to be very good. Service was very slow even though we were one of only 3 tables in the whole restaurant and there were 3 servers. Food was good but not worth the price. Fried oyster appetizer special were very salty and over breaded. Risotto appetizer wine had not been cooked off. Corn pie with pork chop was too sweet and pork chop ordered medium was well done.

Our server, Sharon, was not very punctual in getting us water and assisting us. We are younger adults and I am not your typical looking female, which I feel had a lot of impact. I felt judged and I feel like I was shorted services because of my looks and that I was on a date with my girlfriend. The
Menu on google was also totally out of date and they didn’t offer anything on that menu stil.

It’s a hotel restaurant. They advertise it as a fine-dining establishment which it really isn’t. It’s a hotel restaurant with stained seats overlooking a pool.

I found the restaurant on a list of eateries “with a view.” There was no view except of the aforementioned pool and the completely trashed loudmouths a few tables over.

Now, that all said, the food was excellent. But with a relatively complete lack of ambience and absolutely no recognition of it being our anniversary as was designated on the reservation, I’d not go back. There are tons of places to get great food (less expensively, I might add) in the area.

Our server/bartender Stefani was superb.

Everyone knows that dining is a complex event.

Certainly the food is essential and all of our food was very good (shrimp cocktail, burrata and tomato) unique (duck confit taco) and classically excellent ( pork chop - best I ever had, and filet). The vanilla ice cream was also yummy.

But Stefani made it special - made good suggestions, clearly she is a people person

All and all a great evening

Wine prices definitely improved, but a lot of grocery store bottles. One can have reasonable prices AND eclectic wines. My gnocchi was good, two salmon dishes were overcooked. Birthday girl was craving the diver scallops, got turned off when $43 only bought 3. Without BOGO coupon, prices would not justify a visit. Used to be better.

Totally misleading. Service was awful. Ambiance felt like an old age home. Fortunately, we got a hint of this when it took 10 minutes for us to even to get water, much less noticed at our table. It was the hostess that finally did that. We only stayed for appetizers, which took way to long and were unimpressive as far as flavor, but presented nicely. After nearly an hour, we left hungry and had to find dinner elsewhere. Sort of knew it was going to go that way when our server asked if we had a coupon, and it is portrayed as fine dining.
