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.

Our rare tableside service is a Library tradition. From the tableside Steak Diane to Flambé desserts, the Library represents perfection.
