The Library is a must if you are in the Myrtle Beach area. The food is wonderful and the service is outstanding. Joshua was our professional waiter and masterfully guided us through our food experience. We met the executive chef, Brian, who has an outstanding menu. The owner is a very knowledgable chef and provided an intimate atmosphere, we felt... More

A nice older established restaurant. Service including table side preparation of several items was excellent, but food was good, but not excellent. Nice quiet place for a romantic, special occasion dinnet.

Had a hard time getting a reservation - when we got there were plenty of tables available. I asked why - the answer - they only allow a certain number of guests because they do not want to over tax the kitchen so as not to reduce the quality of the food they serve. The food was great 9Salmon for... More

My Sister-In-Law chose this restaurant when we first arrived in Myrtle Beach to celebrate my parents 60th wedding anniversary. I was less than enthused about her choice because I really wanted to go somewhere less formal for our first dinner there. I quickly realized I was wrong...it is fantastic!!! It's not that formal. It IS wonderful! I don't remember our... More

We were told by a local this was a great place to eat. Fine dining at its best. I have to agree. What I loved most about this place was it was fine dining without being pretentious. We didn't have reservations but were seated right away. The table next to use was set with a beautiful bouquet of flowers from... More

We have been dining here for over 12 years.The food is as superb as ever. It's our "go-to" place when we have guests. The lost art of tableside preparation is still going strong here, the caesar salad and steak Diane are done for you at the table. There are 4 rooms and the "wine room" is intimate and private. Our...

Had a great time at the Library last night. The steak Diane was as terrific as people say. The strawberry shortcake was to die for! Thanks again to our waiter Bobby - impeccable service!
