Wonderful food, service, alcohol selection, ambiance, and atmosphere. The table side prepared foods are unique and fun. You won't regret going to this restaurant.

Annual stop in Myrtle Beach. Caesar salad made tableside, Steak Diane-tableside, Chicken Chardonnay, Grouper with a lobster sauce and fresh hot rolls made to order. Incredible flavor and service. Great for special occasion, business, family or a romantic dinner.

Having visited this restaurant for more than 10 years it can be said that the food at the Library is good and one of the few restaurants that offer table side service for a few of their dishes. However, It was surprising to me that...More

I can't believe The Library is still there. It opened in 1974, and I remember my parents going there in 1976. They raved about it. I finally got to this restaurant in 2016 and had mushrooms baked with gruyere cheese as an appetizer which was...More

My wife loves Steak Diane and Cherries Jubilee. She is very discriminating and has dined in some of the best restaurants in the US and Europe. We have been searching for a fine dining restaurant that offers excellent seafood such as diver scallops as well. We had a bad experience at two local restaurants - one served the steak Diane but it was a canned gravy and horrible - the other served diver scallops which were full of salt and overcooked. Hoping for her special occasion that the Steak Diane has the authentic sauce!

All I can say is it was the best I have ever had. For such a tourist trap town this place is fantastic for preparation, presentation and taste. The decoration and ambiance though is very dated. But you don't go there for the... More
