This is the best dining experience in Myrtle Beach and I cannot wait for the opening of the new location! They have moved and I am eagerly awaiting the Steak Diane at the new spot!

It's a quaint restaurant with good menu variety. The price is on the higher side so probably one for special occasions. Order the caesar salad it's prepared table side and the bananas foster for dessert also prepared table side. Absolutely recommend trying this lovely restaurant.
