Food was delicious especially the duck nacho appetizer! My husband thought the linguini and clams was the best he ever had. Our server was wonderful...very friendly and helpful! Great place for our anniversary dinner! And having a 2 for 1 coupon from the newspaper made it a fabulous bargain!!

Service was good. Food uninspiring and terribly over priced for the quality. Guess I shouldn’t expect any more from a hotel restaurant.

Wish I would have gone to Ruth’s Chris on the other side of the hotel lobby.

Everything was stellar. I wish there were more diners in the restaurant. I loved the new shrimp and grits dish — so did my 2 year old. My wife got the the new filet dish — her haricot vert accompaniments were our of this world. We will be dining here again next year when we return to Marina Inn for our family vacation.

Girlfriends and I were vacationing in Myrtle Beach from Chicago, and went to WaterScapes on a Monday evening the week before Memorial Day. Overall, we had a good time - food was outstanding, server was attentive, and the dining area which is located in the beautiful Grand Dunes Marina Inn was very nicely decorated. The dining room was only 1/4 full on that Monday evening, but I assume that is because it was off season. The bread pudding was AMAZING!

This restaurant was quite nice! The waitstaff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the dinner offerings.

The meal was very good with the chocolate mousse cake being a great way to complete the experience.

Parking is a little bit of a challenge since the restaurant is in the lower level of the hotel and the lot is far away, but it was worth the walk. There is also a valet for those who wish to take advantage of the service.

Steak was well done when ordered medium. Put on reservations that was my wife’s birthday which was never acknowledged. Crime Burlee was curdled and the sugar coating was so over flamed we could not break it with out spoon. Service was extremely slow.

We were at myrtle beach for one week and had lunch at and dinner at many places, overall they were good but we chose Thursday night to go to an upscale and high quality restaurant.
this certainly fit the bill ! everything we ordered was so delicious from the soup and salad to the main entrée I had a delicious 5 oz beef tenderloin cooked perfectly to a medium.
our waitress Stephanie could not be more accommodating and pleasant. this restaurant was a GREAT choice !

Stopped at Reflections first for a cocktail..bartender did not know how to make one of the drinks.
Went Downstairs to Waterscapes and went to the small bar there and again, "bartenders " didn't know how to make drinks, actually they told us they were waiters and not bartenders..
This place has been around for years and they do not have experienced bartenders!!! Very disappointed especially since we were trying to impress friends we hadn't seen in several years..
Table Service was OK however fish was dry and overcooked..sad
Will not be going there anymore

Thought we would shave a view of the marina based on the name of the restaurant and photo. The crab cake appetizer, kid burger and the gnocchi’s were delicious. They made fresh bread upon our arrival as the first dinner guests. Loved our waitress!

We had dinner at Waterscapes Restaurant with some friends. The food was very good, the service was very good and the restaurant was very quiet. I was surprised that there were not very many other people there on a Friday night. I had the Shrimp and Grits which is among the best I have had. One person had the Mahi special and said it was delicious. This is our second time dining here and I am sure it will not be our last.

As always, the service and food were great. Even when we ordered an unusual drink, they found the ingredients and were able to make it without any concern.
The meals were well presented and very tasty. I had the scallops which were great.
All the deserts were made in house and would certainly leave room to order a few for the table.
Room was quiet, despite being fairly busy.

We made reservations here because it was said to be romantic and ideal for special occasions. Upon arrival we found that the dining room was dated, brightly lit, and had no music playing. It lacked ambiance which is what we were looking for in a romantic evening. We chose not to even stay for dinner - just had one drink and went somewhere else to eat.
