Very nice interior. Food was good, although not outstanding. Though "fine dinning", it just didn't check all the boxes. Could be better on all levels.
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.
Sharon was our server and made the evening so enjoyable. Food was great as usual. Don't know why it's not always full but we enjoy the quiet ambience.
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.
My wife and I both loved the food and service was great
We were looking for an upscale place to eat and found it. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. Thank you.
Everything about our stay and meal was excellent! I would definitely recommend this place. I would also come back.
We enjoyed a very romantic dinner.
Excellent food,excellent service, Staff was attentive to all of our needs
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.
Server was okay but unprofessional. Of four adult meals, one was unacceptable and two were unsatisfactory. Wine was good. A couple walked out just before our meals were served. Manager attempted to resolve our complaints.
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
We went to Waterscape for dinner The food was soooo delicious and the service was excellent. Stefani was polite, kind, and informative which made our experience much more enjoyable. Couldn't have asked for a better dining experience.
Great food, beautiful environment, and the best waitress/bartender around. Made us feel very comfortable and great sense of houmor.
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.
Great service, nice atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious filet mignon!
Great dessert. Outdoor seating was nice with the view of the marina. Food was a tad bit expensive.
Very good food, but that’s expected at the prices. Excellent service, nice ambiance. Very enjoyable.
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.
Great staff which is the first ingredient. The check-in lady was very nice and Stefani looked after us very well. Food was excellent even though the executive chef was off for the evening. Great job well done.
Service is very slow.
Kitchen was slow.
Food was good.
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.
All was wonderful for my birthday including complimentary delicious desert. Filet meal melted in mouth. Cocktails were good size which helped offset price. Husband’s rib eye was a bit grissly. Will go back when coupon is available again.
Friends getting together
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
Food delivered promptly and at the right temps. Service was excellent. Waitress was super.
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.
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!!
Wonderful atmosphere and service. Just what we were looking for. Great evening!
We enjoyed our Filet Mignon and RibEye Steaks.
Service was good and presentation was beautiful.
Diningroom lovely and outdoor eating by pool available.
Great food and service. A little pricey but a good value with one of their 2 for 1 coupons from the newspaper. We’ve always enjoyed this restaurant
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.
Food was over priced and service was slow. Very disappointing
Salmon was not cooked. Not a lot of fish on the menu
Had put special birthday on my reservation, but didn't get anything.
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.
This restaurant is pretty good. When we first walked in we had to find someone to seat us. They were all conversating as they sat with no one to greet us. Overall okay though.
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.
