A return visit after a year and we were pleasantly surprised by overall improvements. Liked the menu offerings, server knowledge and well prepared tasty food. One of the few oceanfront views at a fine dining place in Myrtle Beach.

The restaurant is actually located at the Embassy Suites, which for whatever reason is not mentioned in the description. Do not rely on the location that OT or Yelp gives you, it's way off. We went on a slow day and service was still very slow. While the entrees were good, it took us an hour after ordering to get them. Fortunately the chef comped our app, and the server was very apologetic and attentive.

Good view, mediocre food
One of a few Opentable 1000 point table mistakes. So, there must be a good reason they need to award 1000 points just to come here. I thought I would be impressed by a culinary gem, but found the opposite. Dinner was mediocre at best. Prices were a bit steep and portions were small. We were only one of two couples in the restaurant.
The pork tenderloin and shrimp dish was barely four bites of pork and one large shrimp. The collards were very good but the sweet potatoes were cubed and firm, like home fries.
My wife ordered off the "small plates" menu the BBQ Flatbread. It reminded me of Maurice's BBQ made with mustard based sauce. Not my favorite nor hers.
They did have a pretty extensive choice of bourbon flights, with good selections.
The view from our table ... nice, but not worth the price we paid.

While the view at Vintage Twelve is breathtaking, everything else was less than desirable. My tuna was overcooked as was my husband's lamb. The lamb was also a chunk of fat for the most part. The bottle of wine we ordered came out after our meals, and the service was slow. The server was very apologetic as it was her first night on her own. This is not her fault, but managements'. My husband and I have booth worked in Food and Beverage, and this was an all around disappointing meal. We will be returning to Myrtle in the near future, but will definitely not be returning to Vintage Twelve.

Extremely slow service for their only being 2 other tables being served at the time and the food was not any better. It took an hour and fifteen minutes to get our salad and our entrees came about 30minutes after that. When we inquired as to the long wait our waitress replied that this is a "casual fine dining restaurant, so everything is cooked to order, so it takes a little longer than a regular resturant" and that they had an event. Two days before this meal we ate at a James Beard award winning fine dining resturant and it took 20minutes to get our food, so that is no excuse, and we were quite insulted too.
The grilled romain Caesar salad lacked flavor, the cheese crisp was inedibly hard, the garlic toast was stale and the garlic on top was basically raw thus releasing no flavor. Two people at our table got the pork tenderloin and shrimp dish, but when the dish came out the pork was clearly uncooked in the middle. When we asked the waitress she replied that "we don't serve raw pork here" and that it was very pink in the middle because of a meat tenderizer they use. Well we insisted it be cooked more as the other person's pork was cooked fine and had no pink in the middle. The dish lacked flavor and balance as the sweet potatoes were quite spicy with out something to balance them with. The collared greens side tasted like someone a pound of brown sugar into--they were terribly sweet which made them somewhat disgusting. I ordered the snapper, which sounded interesting and creative on the menu. While the fish was cooked fine, the flavors really did not work well together to make a cohesive dish-so it wasn't very good.
The waitress (and/or manager) did take off 15% from our bill because of the long wait, but for the terrible service and poor food the bill was still way too high to justify the experience.
We come to Myrtle Beach often, but will definitely not be coming back to Vintage Twelve!

All three of us had the smaller fillet ...it was prepared perfectly and had an excellent robust flavor. I had a Jack Daniels Honey straight up and one other in our party had a Moscow Mule....both excellent. We shared a peach and a blackberry cobbler...both served warm and delicious. Our server was attentive and spot on.

My wife and I wanted to try a completely new place during our annual visit to Myrtle Beach. Vintage Twelve at Kingston Plantation Resort exceeded our expectations. Besides the delisious food, the ocean view alone was worth the visit. I will return again.

I had eaten here once before and adored it however this time they were a mess. Our drinks took at least 20 minutes and our original waitress told us that it was because there was only one bartended in the whole hotel that day and they were instructed to stay at the general bar area in the lobby so when WE ordered drinks they had to run over and make our cocktails and leave. My impression is that the bar in the lobby only serves beer, wine, and normal cocktails, I'm not sure why they wouldn't just find ANYONE else to man that bar and have their actual bartender man the "upscale restaurants" bar instead which had much more complicated drinks. Did I mention we had two waitresses? One introduced herself, took our drink orders and left. The next time someone came to our table it was a completely new waitress who didn't even address the fact that she would be serving us now instead. They were both lovely but the situation was odd as I know that the first one wasn't just a hostess. We ordered our food which took forever to come out despite the restaurant being nearly empty and I had looked forward to ordering something I had seen on their menu not only HERE but on their website... unfortunately their menu has changed and was just never updated. Ended up ordering a small plate of pork belly and a side of roasted potatoes, assuming that the fennel puree and the poached pear would be enough vegetation for me... it was not. one small piece of pear, barely any puree and the pork belly really needed more to cut the richness. The sides were big enough to share but no one wanted to, the potatoes were overly salted and almost dehydrated looking. The only things that anyone at the table enjoyed were the biscuits (we asked for three refills) and the hush puppies. Now I did point out the fact that the website wasn't updated so they may have changed that, I also pointed out to them that they had multiple spelling errors on their menu, like BLATANT ones. I hope it was just a bad day.

The food was not good. We both had the shrimp bisque and we think it was scorched or burnt. My husband had the scallops and they were not bad but no flavor a little salty. I ordered the crab cake and was brought the bacon wrapped shrimp which I was ok with but the sauce was so salty and peppery I could not eat any of it.
The food was lack luster for the price and setting. Has tons of potential, but falls short. Decided to go based on ocean-front view. Felt rushed and our server wasn't super friendly. Bread = half a corn bread muffin for each of the two of us. It was good. App = hush puppies with fondu was the best part of the meal. Entrees = pork tenderloin was requested medium arrived well done. The shrimp that came with it was so tough you couldn't eat it. Chicken and Dumplings were absolutely not that. One lumpy biscuit with a chicken thigh and green beans that were the consistency of plastic straws. Really terrible food. Served one glass of pino and they ran out. No more pino. Was asked if we wanted them to walk over to Coastal to see if they had pino. At the time we didn't realize that was only about 20 feet. Total $101 before tip. Worst meal I've had in this part of town in 32 years of having a condo here.

A great dinner out for the family. We tried Vintage Twelve for our "nice night out" on vacation this year. It didn't disappoint. The short ribs are a must-try... best dish at the table! We started with the pork belly and the crab cakes; I really wanted the pork belly to be better than it was (it came highly recommended in other OT reviews). The service was excellent and the views were really nice out over the Atlantic coastline.
Vantage Twelve Dinner
We were promptly seated at 5 pm by a polite hostess, our server also came over promptly and was very helpful in giving us menu advice. We both had the smaller filet which was very tender and tasty....however it could have been much hotter (temperature) and shouldn't have been pre sliced without asking us first....unfortunately by pre slicing the only warmth that the filet had was quickly lost as was its it juices and wonderful flavor. However I would still highly recommend the filet ....asking that it not be pre slice. The service was very attentive absolutely excellent!

Beautiful restaurant with a great view. The food was good, but not great for the price point. My friend had the chicken and dumplings and barely touched her meal. I had the shrimp and grits and it was decent. Service was slow considering there were only 5 tables dining in the restaurant the entire time we were there. On the upside, the drinks were fantastic. I would be willing to give Vintage Twelve a second chance.

Food quality needs to get better, potatoes were undercooked, flatbread pizza was not at all crispy, lentil served with lamb was undercooked. Flavors were fine though. It took a long time for the food to come out. Maybe Will recommend to go here only due to flavor of thefood.

The service was great. I was by myself but they gave me a great window table. I had the Elk...it was prepared well. But I found I don't love grass fed meat. Corn should be mixed in the last month. I will stick to fish dishes there. Beet puree was delicious. I loved the Creme Brulee.

It's not every day that I take the time to write a review. I usually write reviews only when we have an extraordinary experience...and tonight we did.
The food is wonderful. Get the pork belly starter plate. You must. It's larger than you might expect for a "starter." You might want to make it an entree. Other winners: shrimp and grits, and fried oysters.
Far beyond the food though is the service. Ask for Sandra as your server. She is professional, attentive, gracious, and knowledgeable. She explained each of the specials in good detail. When our drinks were empty, she refilled them without us having to ask. She promptly removed our plates after we finished each course and provided clean silverware appropriate to the next course.
Nothing I expected
I booked this restaurant days before I arrived not knowing that there was going to be a minimize menu. I was highly disappointed in my food and the waiter didn't notice that I hadn't are any of my food. The "traditional " meal was horrible. It was cold and the sweet potatoes were pureed and the dressing tasted like a box stove top stuffing. My husband enjoyed his food. I just thought that I was coming to the restaurant to get crab cakes or shrimp and grits...but not. All in all it wasn't a great experience but I'd be willing to go back as long as it's not a holiday.
Went for Thanksgiving meal. Super slow service. Food was cold. Not just entree, but side dishes, too. Other patrons around us complained of cold food, too. One lady insisted on sending her meal back to kitchen and server was very nasty about it.
My group could hear the complaints of all the other diners. Every single patron had cold food. It was funny - one guy said loudly, Hey, the carrots are actually warm! Everyone laughed.
Service was beyond slow and very unfriendly. Drinks were never refilled.
Pretty clear the staff didn't want to be there. And that includes the chef / cooks. Well, here's an easy solution - don't open on Thanksgiving. But if you are open on Thanksgiving and you are charging very high prices, at least have the decency to toss the food in a microwave before sending it out.
Staff was well aware of the issues. There were numerous complaints. They responded with either belligerence or apathy. Worst part for me was the upset stomach I had after the meal.
Recommend anywhere over this place. Seriously. Go to Mickey D's and get an apple pie or something. At least it will be hot.

There are not enough words to describe the wonderful dinner and server, Sandra. The chef's food was innovative, delicious and beautifully presented. Tasteful decor, well curated wine list, great vegetarian options... I think you would be hard-pressed to find a better meal anywhere and I live in Manhattan. If I lived here this would be a weekly destination. It will be the first reservation upon my return. This is a place you RUN to.
Off season, hard to find, but worth it
Was kind of hard to find, off the beaten track in the Embassy Suites, but the food was really good. Had the pork belly appetizer and thought I had died and gone to heaven. A little on the pricey side, but thoroughly enjoyed it.
I miss Caitlin
Food has not been as good since chef Caitlin Brady left... I had the low country trio which was good and my husband had the fish special which was ok and the wine was really good. Wish I could say more. We have been several times hoping for great again but it's not there yet. Wait staff was great however, and ambiance always great.
This is a small, intimate dining restaurant with a beautiful ocean view. We ordered the wedge salad and it is enough for two people and quite delicious! The presentation was unlike any we have seen before (in a good way!) They also brought us peach cornbread with a honey butter and it was scrumptious as well. My husband had the seafood trio and I had the 8 oz filet, both of which were excellent! For dessert, we had the warm apple cake in a cast iron skillet, one being enough for two people to share. Although the chef seemed to be a little slow on this night (since there weren't many other people there), we still enjoyed the evening immensely. Don't expect to get out of here in a hurry.
