Best restaurant in Myrtle Beach! Absolutely Fantastic! The service and the food preparation, and presentation, were exquisite! We especially loved the She-crab soup and the grouper! Definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves wining and dining!

My husband and I spent a lovely evening with our family to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary. It was the second time I have been to The Library and I can't tell you which time I enjoyed more. The service was excellent, the meal divine, my drinks served promptly and we'll chilled. I would highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and plan on coming back for another delicious evening.

The owner was very attentive, knowledgable of all the dishes, and overall one of the nicest people we've met. Its obvious he takes great pride in his work. The food was beyond perfect. The she-crab soup was unlike anything else weve had, sweet at first with a spicey heat finish. Drinks were well made with topshelf spirits. The rack of lamb was delicious and could quite literally be cut with a butter knife, the new york strip steak with peppercorn sauce was my favorite. I can not recommend this place enough.

I had read some great reviews about The Library so was excited to try. Everything seemed promising when we entered the restaurant, the wait staff were very nice and attentive. But the food really was not good at all. We had Rockefeller oysters and I had steak and my boyfriend had lamb chops. He left majority of his on his plate, they were not good at all, extremely fatty. My steak looked like it was microwaved. It did not taste good at all. It was a disappointing meal.

The service The Library is impeccable. They use a professional professional wait staff, and our waiter was Fry. Fry never let us want for anything. He was always there, blending in until we needed something. The food is superb! Their sweetbreads are perfect. Their steaks are so tender you can cut them with a fork. The only knife I received with my filet with a butter knife. If you're looking for one meal when you're in Myrtle Beach, make it at the library. You will not be disappointed!

As always we enjoyed the Library restaurant, we always enjoy the Caesar salad that is prepared at the table, it really adds to the dining experience. My wife and I are from Charlotte, and try to eat there a few times a year when we're in town. And yes I have recommended to several of my friends.

The Library's "Wine Cellar" private dining room was a unique and exceptionally pleasant experience. Our waiter Christopher made the night even more enjoyable preparing my Caesar Salad table-side. Who does that anymore? His menu knowledge, food and wine suggestions were right on for an excellent meal ending with Cherries Jubilee flambeed table-side of course.
With so many restaurants offering pre-made or frozen dishes it is nice to come to a place that is still serving up high quality food and service.

My Wife, Mother-in-Law and I were on vacation in Myrtle Beach and had dinner there. Bobby was our waiter. The food was fantastic, and the service superb. Try the Steak Diane, crab soup and the cherries jubilee. You won't be disappointed!

We look forward to dining at the Library every year when we vacation in Myrtle Beach. Christopher was our server this year and he was excellent. Chad makes incredible drinks and we love their wines, especially their own Reserve ones, and my husband also enjoys the great selection of interesting craft beers. The food is so good that we always order too much because it is all so delicious. We always get the potato blue cheese soup and the lobster tails with a surprise of shrimp inside the shells with other appetizers and dishes but there is nothing on the menu, including the desserts, that you won't enjoy. It's pricey but so worth it for a special treat.

The Library is a hidden gem of a restaurant tucked in a small strip shopping center....you would never know what's hidden behind the doors. Outstanding food ...many dishes prepared tableside. The steak Diane is superb. And outstanding cherries jubilee. Bananas foster. Homemade hot fudge sundae. Foodies will be jubilant to have found this place in a sea of mediocre myrtle beach spots. Service impeccable. Treat yourself.

An absolutely divine dining experience, everything from the drinks to dessert. Our waiter was professional yet friendly and nice. The Library was a perfect choice for our 3rd wedding anniversary celebration! We ordered beef tips with shrimp for an app, it was delicious! Then for drinks we had blueberry acai mojitos, which were fabulous! Dinner was a ny strip for me, chicken for my husband, both were wonderful and paired with delicious sides of mushrooms, green beans, potatoes, and carrots. The desserts were also delish, bananas foster prepared at the table! This is a lovely choice for a quiet, romantic dinner! It's a bit pricey but well worth it! If you're looking for quiet, peaceful, delicious, adult only dining, this is it!

An absolute hidden gem in Myrtle Beach. An epicurean delight of the highest magnitude. The ambiance is subtle, the food superb. We had a most excellent Ceasar salad which prepared at table side was a delight and a true art form which is a lost art. Our entrées were the chefs specials, I had the Halibut and my wife the Scottish Salmon, both pan seared and broiled served with a sherry cream sauce and vegetables that were cooked to perfection. Pared with an excellent Chardonnay we followed with Cherries Jubilee and coffee cordials.
Our waiter Josh was most attentive and was very knowledgable about the history of the restaurant as well as other local attractions. Management and the other staff were very accommodating as well.
My wife and I plan a return visit in the near future. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone with an appreciation for fine food and wine. This is not your stereotypical beach town establishment. Dress appropriately business casual, not beach wear. Bon Appetit!

The food was absolutely exquisite. The ambiance was amazing and very private and intimate. The menu was an allure in and of itself but the waiter's presentation of the chef's features was what sold my fiance and I on what we'd have. Again I cannot stress how divinely good the food was. A bit on the higher priced side but definitely well worth it.

This restaurant is a must visit if you want a memorable dining experience in Myrtle Beach. Our waiter was very knowledgable about menu items making good suggestions. Fish entree was prepared to perfection and duck was delicious. Small quiet dining room was welcome change from beach crowd. It is pricey for vacation but worth it. Will definitely return.

We enjoyed our visit at the Library. The ambiance was relaxed. Cocktails were delicious. Appetizers fresh and flavorful. Soups spectacular. Main courses prepared with care. Our server Christopher was appropriately attentive, as was the owner/chef. Sadly we were visiting but I expect we'll make it a point to return.
One of Myrtle Beach's treasures
We had another outstanding meal at the Library. The food is excellent (we rate it at one of the better restaurant we have eaten at in the US) and the staff is exceptional - especially Bobby. The Caesar Salad is prepared in the traditional manner as it has been done in Tijuana for decades. We highly recommend it.
First time to the Library, we had heard good things and were not disappointed. Every course was fantastic. The lump crabmeat appetizer and the unique she crab soup were big hits. Our server Bobby was very knowledgeable and gave great recommendations and provided excellent and attentive service. Everyone loved their entries and the family style veggies were great - especially the carrots (marinated in Grand Mariner I think). The desserts were incredible, especially the pecan fudge caramel pie. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for!
We will definitely return!
This is exquisite dining in a beach town.
The Library continues to rank in our top dining experiences. We have dined in fine restaurants, from NY City to Paris, Austria, Italy and many other countries, yet we keep coming back to Myrtle Beach. On this trip it was just what we were looking for (atmosphere, service and high quality food with a nice wine list.
We will return (God willing) and highly recommend this dining experience to anyone seeking to avail themselves of its charms.
The dishes are prepared to order and served with expert timing and quality. The service is friendly and impeccable.
We highly recommend dining at "The Library" at Myrtle Beach, SC

Hosted a business meal for eight for multiple clients. ALL attendees were very complementary of the wine, food, and service. A number of the individuals have been coming to the MB area for years for both business and pleasure, and were not even aware that The Library had such a high caliber dining experience. The intimate atmosphere, wine, food, and service are just right to entertain valued clients.
