1) The Library

As a bonafide booklover, the library theme of this restaurant is truly after my own heart. The dining room, lined with book shelves, has a study-like atmosphere. The Library’s cuisine is the main character, though. The chef creates fresh, novel entrees daily.  Traditional presentation and service is also key to the experience. A tuxedoed wait staff caters to your every whim, while tableside service is a nice throwback touch you won’t find at many Myrtle Beach restaurants. Order the Steak Diana or one of the flambé desserts and prepared to be wowed!

2) Cypress Room

The floor-to-ceiling oceanfront views of the Cypress Room attract an audience. But the fine dining menu is what keeps them there. Laidback yet sophisticated, the setting lets you relax but also keeps a high-quality tone. The menu, designed by Chef Michael McKinnon reflects his French- New American roots but has a distinct low country flair. Citrus Crust Grouper and Braised Beef Short Ribs are just two examples of the seafood and beef selections served at the Cypress Room.

3) Aspen Grille

Classic tastes. Southern roots. That’s the signature of Aspen Grille, which was reopened in 2009 by chef and owner Curry Martin. Dishes are based on traditional southern cuisine, but with a fine dining twist. The menu changes seasonally, but some of the fresh yet innovative favorites include Fried North Carolina Oysters, Fried Green Tomatoes, Seared Sea Scallops, and Shrimp and Grits. Pair your selection with a wine from a hand-selected list for a truly great meal. Even though Aspen Grille strives for a sophisticated atmosphere, an evening here is also comfortable – especially due to the attentive and helpful wait staff.

4) Rossi’s Italian Restaurant

Step inside for a taste of the old world – Italian style – at Rossi’s Italian Restaurant. Rossi’s softly-lit dining rooms, brick walls, white columns, arched doorways, greenery and charm create an intimate place to take your loved one for a night out. Every dish is delicious too; you can’t go wrong with classics like Veal Parmigiana and Oven Baked Lasagna, but as you’re at the coast I highly recommend the Lobster Ravioli. After dinner, visit the Eighty-Eights Piano Bar to continue your romantic evening in Myrtle Beach.

5) Lombardo’s Italian Restaurant

Another Italian gem in Myrtle Beach is Lombardo’s. A warm, romantic ambiance is perfect for date night. Picture white linen tablecloths, mood lighting, earth tones and rich mahogany woods. Then, imagine authentic Italian cuisine prepared by Chef John Lombardo. He uses family recipes to create mouthwatering menu options like Chicken Scapeillo, Grouper Florentine and Filet Mignon. Authentic flavors, an inviting setting, and exceptional service make Lombardo’s one of the best places to bring your sweetheart.
