Amazing food and superb service! The Library is a fine dining experience at it's best. During our visit my wife and I had hand crafted cocktails, table side prepared Cesar salad, sweetbreads, and flambe desserts. We also had kitchen prepared dishes of Scottish Salmon and jumbo Blue Crab. The Library also has an excellent wine and Champagne list. We enjoyed... More

The Library offers solid choices of steak and seafood dishes with some options for tableside preparation, including Caesar salad, steak Dianne, and flambeed deserts. Nightly specials were unique and redirected us from steak to seafood. We both chose the seafood duo that included black grouper with crab and a Maine lobster tail that was stuffed with small poached shrimp. We... More

We did a splurge night while visiting the town, and The Library did not disappoint. Solid wine list, full bar, and a terrific, focused menu. Service was outstanding; our server gave us some great recommendations. Be prepared to spend some $$, but all in all, a fine dining experience in an otherwise tacky beach town.

One of those finds from locals recommendations. Service was amazing. Home made Cesar salad dressing prepared at your table. Steak Diane was also prepared right at our table. Food was amazing. Wife had the Filet mignon and she used a butter knife to cut it. Now premium price but will be back on next visit.

First off it is very dark in there. My wife and I needed our iPhones to read the menu. A shrimp cocktail was $20!! The cocktails were very good and the service was grade A first class. It was the best part of the meal. We tried the French onion soup that was so so. My wife ordered the chicken... More

We stopped in for impromptu cocktails, not knowing what to expect. Shad, the owner (and excellent bar man), was very friendly and attentive. We were both pleased with our cocktails and enjoyed the light-hearted Trivial Pursuit "game" while we waited for our Hor d'Oveuvres. Our entire experience was outstanding. The food was outstanding. Albeit a very formal setting, Shad made... More

If you are looking for a small, private, dinner with superior service go to The Library. The service was top of the line. The servers were respectful, responsive, helpful, and friendly. The food was delectable. My husband and I took our two boys; 11 and 8 there for dinner, and the kitchen gladly divided an adult dish into two. When... More

When we visit Myrtle Beach, before we head home, this is our last dinner stop. Why you ask? Well, it is soooo good that if we ate there the first night of our stay, we would want to eat there every night and we would be broke! So we save the best for last! They make you feel like you... More

My husband I visited this restaurant after reviewing TripAdvisors recommendations. The food was ok to good and the waiter was good. The ambience was totally lacking. We were seated at a table that was under some bright light and I asked for the lights to be dimmed a bit and was told " of course" and it never happened. The... More
