We enjoy meeting our friends here to have great cuisine. We dined on ribeye, filet & pork chop with excellent sides to accompany our entrees.
Sharon our waitress was very attentive and made our dining more enjoyable.

Enjoyed the atmosphere. Easy to carry on conversation. The wine was good and the service was excellent. Our waiter took great care or us. My wife’s rib eye was mouth watering. Hope to go to Waterscape again.

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.

Though overall food quality, quantity and appearance was good, at $30-$40 per average entree with no salad ($9 for a house salad) and expensive wine and dessert ($9 ea) there are much better places to go in Myrtle Beach. Server was good, but billing mix ups impacted several tables extending our stay over 30 min to get fixed. Was given a lunch menu instead of a dinner menu. For their top of the class prices, the overall experience didn't match up.

We celebrated Valentines Day and took advantage of their 5 course “dinner special”. All four of us said it was one of the best meals and dining experiences we’ve had in a long time. The food was excellent and the service couldn’t have been better. It’s a beautiful “fine dining” restaurant. We would highly recommend WaterScapes and will definitely go back.

The best thing at this particular restaurant was the service received from our waitress. She was very nice and conversational. The food however was not good. It was way too salty and the pictures on their website did not look the same as a particular dish that are ordered. Very disappointed and have to say I will not down again or recommend this restaurant.

This experience was the opposite of prior occasions, including our review given 11/16. Wile the setting and service were as expected, the food gave the impression that Waterscapes was "cutting back". The ala carte caesar salad which we split was a meager serving of anemic -looking lettuce with 3 half grape tomatoes each. The filet was less than the 5 oz which was ordered medium rare and arrived closer to medium. The potatoes under the meat were very liquid ...."runny". The salmon which was described as seared instead was greasy and was lacking kale and with an overabundance of lentils. The menu has been the same for the greater part of this year and after going at least 5 or 6 times this year, it will be some time before we return.

A fantastic culinary experience! Every course (Christmas Dinner) was skillfully prepared and plated. The filet mignon was superior to that which I have eaten at some nationally recognized chains. Quiet and unassuming atmosphere, great service, and nice location. I highly recommend it.

I was very disappointed. When we arrived for Christmas eve it was their regular lunch menu so basically sandwiches it was very disapppointing even the waitress said they should have called clients and told them this. I would have expected better for the occasion we could have gone to Panera for what was served

We went for dinner to celebrate my Daughters college graduation. The Food was excellent, we had the Duck nachos as an appetizer. My wife had the scallops which were crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, My son had the chicken which he was very pleased.
My daughter and I had the 10oz Filet which we had medium rare and was cooked perfectly.
Only once before did I have a filet so tender that I was able to cut it with my fork.

We live in the area, but had not heard of WaterScapes. We went there when we obtained a coupon. I checked the menu on the Internet and thought it a bit pricey, but felt the coupon would help. What a pleasant visit! Food and service were exceptional. Considering the quantity and quality, the price was right. We've added WaterScapes to our list of restaurants for repeated return visits. No coupon needed!

We (aka....my girlfriend....lol) chose this restaurant because of its rave reviews, so it's only right that I contribute a review myself. The reviews we saw didn't give this restaurant enough credit! The food was exquisite! The service and atmosphere were phenomenal! Although it was a little pricey, I didn't mind paying the bill after this phenomenal date night! Everything from the bread and goat cheese mixture, to the duck confit nachos, to the drinks (tiramisu martini and Weekend at the Beach), to the entrees (go with the chef's special...... you'll thank me later!), to the dessert (tiramisu) was absolutely amazing! This is the kind of restaurant that I'm sure has seen many proposals! My girlfriend and I decided to each order something we normally wouldn't, and then share. She had scallops, and I had stuffed flounder. While we decided we don't really like the texture of scallops, we loved the taste of everything! We left fully satisfied with our choice of restaurants, and I'm sure you will too.

Food and service was top notch. The scallop dish was incredible with many layers of flavor. My wife had the shrimp n grits which was not your typical shrimp n grits. Wonderful flavors and to end the evening, the chocolate, dark n white mousse cake with raspberry sauce was light but oh so tasty! Staff, including our server Chris were friendly always checking on us and timely. Can't wait for a return visit.

Reading the reviews which recommended scallops or steak. We decided to order the scallops. The scallops and accompanyments were very good. Unfortunately ordering a manhattan on the rocks, the drink delivered was red in color and did not taste like any manhattan I had ever had. The waitress did replace the drink with a mediocare manhattan. Was not impressed with the service and the outside table could have used a cleaning. Get the cushions for the seats. They are very low.

We took advantage of a local special coupon and we were rewarded with an excellent dining experience. My shrimp and grits was the best I've ever had. Steaks were cooked perfectly, scallops were fantastic and the pasta with clams was delicious. It is a place for special celebrations with comfortable seating and had outdoor tables also.

We are locals and this is the first time we have eaten at this restaurant. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Steaks same quality level as Ruth Chris at fair price. The filet, seared scallops, ribeye and pork chop were all excellent. Our server Stefani was very gracious and efficient - took very good care of us. Ray from Myrtle Beach.
