Review Title: Best restaurant in myrtle
Review: Best restaurant in myrtle beach- hands down! We decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews and we are so glad we did. The only thing I regret is making this the first place we ate on your vacation because everything after this was subpar due to our amazing experience here. Our server was friendly and took the time to ask us where we were from and make a connection. We ordered the salmon and crab cakes and were not disappointed. The food was delicious and arrived quickly. The atmosphere was wonderful and great for a date night. We would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Review Title: Great service, great food, locally owned with a fair price
Review: When we first arrived we were unsure of whether or not it would be good, but it was excellent! Our server, Nathan, gave us excellent service and was very knowledgeable of the food and gave us both excellent suggestions. Key lime pie and lobster bites were to die for! Definitely give it a try when in MB.

"My wife and I along with another couple ate at your establishment
this evening and all of us agree that our meal was one of the finest
we've had since leaving home in our motor homes in August. Kudos to
you and your staff. Fantastic. "
We are locals who make Flamingo Grill our special destination during special times of the year; this time was STILL the Place to Be (we celebrated our anniversary) and it only gets better every time we go! Patrick was awesome as usual and so attentive (my husband got drenched in the outside downpour right before we got in the door and Patrick sent for a towel so he could get the damp off!!) Thanks so much:-) And Meredith was very special--there was no wait time between the appetizer and the arrival of the salads--we were very impressed indeed. Again, it was our pleasure to make Flamingo Grill THE choice for our special times together. Myrtle Beach has added ambience because of you!

We lucked into finding this great place several years ago. This visit
was our 20 year wedding anniversary and I had an idea of surprising my
wife when we arrived. The staff was outstanding with allowing me to
drop off a flower and cake and arranging them on a table they had for
us. My wife was overjoyed. The only thing better was the dinner they
served us. This is by far, the ONLY place you need to visit when you
come to Myrtle beach. "
We Love this place ,so much so ,that we come from Ohio for our Anniversary. The steaks are awesome and the shrimp and grits, and oysters, it's all good. We decided to make this place a vacation destination also. Love it <3

Our first time visiting Myrtle Beach. We read an article about your restaurant, loved the name. We had dinner the last night of our stay and it was great. We had skewered grilled lemon-pepper shrimp and fried shrimp. The boiled red skinned potatoes and green beans were perfect. It was nice to have vegetables seasoned perfectly and very traditional. The décor reminded us of the supper clubs we went to with our parents and families. One regret-we did not know about your fine restaurant before the end of our vacation.

Dino - thanks for the response. I was able to call ahead and we were seated immediately. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Service staff did a great job. My blackened strip steak was cooked to perfection. We'll definitely be back.
Our favorite place to eat in Myrtle Beach. Love the food, service and atmosphere.

The Gustafson's, Illinois
For several years now we have been coming to the beach twice each year: We always look forward to dinning at The Flamingo Grill whenever we are in town. The food and service have always been fantastic and almost seems to get better with time. Impeccable is a strong word to describe such things, but in this case it may be an understatement. But perhaps above all else is the barkeeper, Linda. To complete your evening and to make it even more memorable, engage her in casual conversation over a nightcap. She is the genuine article!

The fried lobster bites are out of this world. A friend told us about Flamingo Grill and we have been making the 6/12 hr drive from Atlanta ever since, just for this extraordinary meal. We love Flamingo Grill and its upbeat atmosphere!

Same great food everytime, fresh, not overdone. Shea was very good and helpful.
Hope to return to Myrtle Beach soon.

Gail is definitely a keeper.She was attentive to every detail, pleasant and never distracted, even the children, which is unusual to see. People like that make a restaurant great. Good food too, of course.We will be back.

Gail was super-she smiled and was so pleasant the entire night.
She made our 9-yr-old's birthday with the chocolate mousse cake.
Everything was wonderful, especially the lobster bites. Thanks so much.
Jim Zack, Charlotte, NC
In 30 yrs coming to Myrtle Beach we never tried Flamingo Grill. This was the best meal we've had and will come back. No comparison to any other restaurant on the strand
Bob Stolzenbeger, Ohio- Go Bucks!
Really enjoyed the food.
Gail's service was fantastic.

Tracey Winton, Carlisle, PA
Thank you for a great dinner. My son is in a wheelchair and everyone made sure he was taken care of. We ate lobster tails, fried lobster chunks, and she crab soup. The food was great and the service was great. Thanks for a great time and the extra help with my son. WE WILL BE BACK.
Thank you for the best meal I've ever had in Myrtle Beach!! The meal was outstanding and priced very well. Our filets were tender and cooked exactly as ordered. The fish was fresh and prepared to perfection. Our server was knowledgeable and efficient! I will definitely return the next time I'm in Myrtle Beach.
Jill Hendelman, Northern VA
The food here is wonderful. I went here the night before we were going to leave and wish I would've tried this place sooner. I had the food on my mind for two days straight. I even recommened it to a co- worker that was traveling to Myrtle Beach. My food was done in a timely matter and they give you a gracious amount of food for your money, I dad lobster chunks, crab cake, 2 sides a salad and garlic bread for only $21.
Aldrina, Washington, DC
I WISH I LIVED CLOSER!!! The lobster bites were AMAZING! And the surf and turf was DELICIOUS! I walked in in not knowing what to expect....kind of reminded me of cheesy Vegas decor, but the FOOD WAS AMAZING!! Thank you for a great meal!!!
Brandi & Mike, Akron, OH
We are amazed by the staff. Every time we come here the staff is as as comparable to the food.
Excellent! See you next year.
Ed & Sandy Auburgey,
Our 1st time here. It made for a wonderful 25th anniversary. Food and service was outstanding. We will definitely make this a repeat stop every time we are in town.
Tim & Beth Shelton, Eden, NC
I wanted to let you know how wonderful my husband and I think Flamingo Grill is. We've been frequenting Flamingo Grill for years and keep coming back. We especially love the cajun calamari, the steaks and the sweet vinaigrette dressing. The service is outstanding.We look forward to eating with you soon!
Rhonda Wells, Conway, SC
There aren't enough stars to rate you. From the moment the hostess professionally and courteously greeted us we knew. Waitress was outstanding in both service and treatment. Food presentation and taste was excellent.
Lou Iandoli, New Jersey
Love Flamingo! Thanks for always taking care of us!!
Ann Nesmith, Bank of NC
Just had the pleasure of dining at your restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. Went online to read reviews and saw Patrick, who was also recommended by friend, was the waiter to get. We were not disappointed he was the greatest and that is coming from someone raised in the restaurant business. The food was awesome, ahi tuna unbelievable . My husband had the petit fillet and he was impressed with it. The food, cocktails and service were exceptional and I will be passing this on at the resort.
Raylene Matheney, Hayward, Wis
Food was great. Service just as good. Will come back.
thanks again, we were here last year. just as good this time.
Sherry, Rockford, Ill

Always will be on my "Myrtle Beach Best restaurants" list.
Just had my favorite, Fried Lobster bites and shrimp and Grits.
Louise Sumrall, Knoxville, Tenn
As a kid, my family and I would visit Myrtle Beach once a year. We would always go to the Flamingo once or twice, each trip. I remember always getting the prime rib. For some reason, I was just thinking about this place, wondering if it was still open. Last time I went here was in 1994. Brings back memories.
Yes we are Justin. And we still have great prime rib and seafood.
Come dine with us again. Dino
Justin, Arden, North Carolina
Hi...We have owned a unit in Sea Mark Tower for 20 years and have eaten at Flamingo Grill many times. We love it! Are you serving traditional thanksgiving dinner?
Sherri, Cleveland Ohio
We also love Flamingo's. Best Seafood restaurant around. Been coming down for years now with the crew golfing. Everybody loves your stuff. And our waitress, Maris is the best! See you in November

I love the food at the Flamingo Grill. Julie, your manager is a breath of fresh air. We love her.
Gloria Pegram, Surfside, SC
Every year we come down to play golf, but we also look forward to eating at Flamingo Grill. We've been coming since 1989 and the food and service is off the chart. we will down again this year, can't wait. Love your prime rib...see you then!!!
Al Hanaway, Hebron, Indiana
My baby and I came to Myrtle Beach for a good getaway and great food... We got both. The atmosphere was excellent and we loved the lobster bites with the filet oscar.. We will be returning in May 2009

I loved my meal at Flamingo Grill it was one of the best dates ever. Me and Taylor had a blast!!
Will Cox, Beargrass,nc
In July about seven of us came to your Grill for supper. The best Lobster Tail and Prime Rib I have ever tasted. It was "perfection". Plus it was as pretty as the picture in the menu! My granddaughter found out what "real Prime Rib" should taste like. She had tried some at another place and did not care for it, but yours was wonderful. We all enjoyed our meals. Thank you!!
Sherry and Douglas Cotten, Hillsborough, NC
We have been vacationing in Myrtle Beach since we were kids and have likely eaten at the majority of fine Myrtle Beach restaurants at some time in our 50-plus years. We have not missed the Flamingo once in the past 12 annual vacations. Thanks for becoming one of our favorite memories.
Joyce and Tony, Garner NC
To the Flamingo Grill:
My family and I recently dined at your restaurant while we were on vacation in Myrtle Beach. We have been to Myrtle Beach before, but never had a chance to eat at the Flamingo Grill. BOY..what we were missing!!! I have to say that the food and service we received when we were there (7/25/08) surpassed everything that we experienced at other local establishments. The fried lobster appetizer...EXCELLENT! The Crab cakes...FABULOUS..THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD! Myrtle beach is one of our favorite vacation spots..rest assured we will be eating at the Flamingo Grill each time we are there.
Oh...fyi...I also gave you guys a great review on my Myspace:)
Angelina Boggs, Buford, Ga.
Hi, we recently stayed in MB in July and visited your restaurant. I must say I think I had the best dining experience In my life!! Everything from service, food and very important to me, accommodating our 1 and 3 yr old kids!!! was stellar. I know that in our future ventures to MB one of the first things on our list will be to eat at Flamingo Grill!!! You guys are a class act. Keep up the great job.
Rick Suhar, Cleveland, OH
Our family has been vacationing in Myrtle Beach in August for many years and luckily found the Flamingo, located near our timeshare. When we discuss where to eat -- one of the "must eat at" restaurants is always Flamingo's. We call ahead for reservations and pray that there is "trigger fish" on the menu -- we have never eaten it anywhere else--delicious!! Our week is coming soon -- can't wait to eat at Flamingo's -- one of the highlights of our Myrtle Beach vacation. Your menu is the best!
Shirley and Larry Radzevick, Greensburg,Pa.
Nothing can compare to the food and service at the Flamingo Grill. Always greeted with a friendly smile and hello - a big plus in our book. We love the Lobster Bites and always get them when we dine here. Other eating establishments should take a look at how enjoyable a night of fine dining can be!

For many years (over 30) Su's parents, Don and Joyce Lawson visited Myrtle Beach and Surfside. We often visited and until recently, owned a condo at Surfside. Su's parents spent many a night dinning at Cagney's or the Flamingo Grill. We held their 50th Anniversary party at the Flamingo Grill, and have many fine memories of the fine food and comeradery enjoyed at both locations. We especially miss seeing many of the staff we came to know during our visits, as well as the conversations with both Dinos. You could be away for an extended period of time, walk through the door be instantly recognized, called by name and know you were in the right place. In all our travels through the world, no two finer restaurants exist nor do two finer restaurateurs than the Dinos.
Thank you for many fine memories.
Richard and Su Mansur, Moultonborough, NH
My family and I have been going to Myrtle Beach for 5 years now. On a recent trip we drove down route 17 looking for something local and fun we decided on the Flamingo Grill and we were not disappointed. Everything was delicious and we had an excellent waiter, Scott, who was upbeat and fun. We all left with smiles on our face, but I left without my hat on. I talked to Mike that night on the phone and he agreed to meet me the next day (Sunday), even though the Grill was closed because I had to fly out. If you care about customer service and want to feel like you are the only people that matter in the restaurant I recommend the Flamingo Grill.
Robert Herbst, East Greenbush, NY
Dino T, you know I have been touting the Flamingo Grill to tourists for years and wanted to add my 2 cents here also. In this writers opinion, there is no better restaurant in Myrtle Beach. The food is always the same, SUPER, and you and Dino D. have gone out of your way to always have the greatest staff on the Beach. No one can touch the prime rib, NY strips that will melt in your mouth, Pasta Flamingo that you can`t stop eating. I could go on and on. We Love ya Bud(and a big Hi to Miss Angie).
Aubrey Toole, Myrtle Beach, S C
My husband, Eddie, and I look forward to eating at Flamingo's every year that we visit Myrtle Beach. Last year for Christmas I gave him a gift certificate to eat here and we could not wait to use it! We are returning to the coast this weekend for our 16th wedding anniversary and I can assure you, our first night of dinning out will be at Flamingo's. The food is out of this world! Thanks for being such a special place See you soon!
Eddie & Rhonda Lawson, West Springs, SC
In 3 years of visiting Myrtle Beach I wanted to compliment your restaurant as being the best meal with the best service (Stormii was our server) I have had yet. Thank you. I plan to recommend your restaurant to all my friends and will return.
Tara Poremba, Chicago, IL
Just wanted to say the Flamingo Grill is world class. My family and I come to Myrtle Beach often and we never miss the chance to dine with you. Compliments to the chef and to all of the staff. Can't wait to see you again. Thanks!
Ryan Loggins, Lexington, SC
Wow, Wow, Wow... we have been coming to Myrtle Beach for about 5 years. This past year was our first time to your establishment. One of the Locals said we would love it... wow she was right. The building is fun, but the food is amazing. The Lemon Pepper Grouper was out of this world. We will never go to another buffet. The food is so much better at the Flamingo no reason to go any place else. See you next year!
Sarah & Ken Broussard, Bonaire, Ga
My wife and I have been going to Myrtle Beach for the last 5 years. Our first time there we were cruising around, looking the place over, and saw your restaurant.
It looked so cool we had to come back for dinner. What a pleasant surprise! The food was absolutely fantastic and the wait staff obviously enjoyed their work. There wasn't anything negative to say and in the ensuing 5 years, we've come back over and over.
Everyone we brought with us loves the place. I know if my wife came down here on vacation and didn't get your lobster bites at least once, I'd be in the doghouse big time!

I have Horry County ties,my Uncle Guy was manager of the Ponderosa Campground years
ago. Whenever we are in M.B. we plan at least one meal at Flamingo's. The food is excellent,and the service has always been top notch. Keep up the good work and our group (8) will see you in July when we come down. Bil Hammond
Bil Hammond, Goldsboro North Carolina
This place is a must. Me and all my friends had a blast her and if you love seafood this place is the best.
We have been bringing a group of 25-30 to MB on a golf/ shopping trip for many years. Our tradition is to go to Flamingo Grill on the first night. We can always count on great service and fabulous food year after year. Keep it up!
Susie Johnson, Charlotte
I brought a group of 27 customers in Monday night from a convention we were attending. Everyone had been in Myrtle Beach for a couple of days so had a chance to check out a few of the other local establishments. Everone raved about the food and service at the Flamingo Grill. Not sure when we'll be back but I can promise the Flamingo Grill will be our first choice. Thanks for a great evening, great food and great service.
Homer Biles, Atlanta, Georgia
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in MB several years ago and had dinner at your wonderful restaurant.
We have never forgot the great food. Your chef made our lobster tails and filets so delicious that my wife and I were making noises while we were eating. I know the people in the booth next to us thought we were having sex because of all the oooo's and aaaaaaaa's.
We have told a million people about your restaurant and will continue to do so. Hopefully this October we will be in MB for our anniversary again. This will be our 28th. If we do make it and you hear noises coming from a booth that may be x rated you will know we made it.
Thanks for the memory.
Steve and Sandra Lloyd, Summerville, SC
We found your restaurant one day while vacationing in Myrtle Beach about 3 years ago. Now, we vacation there every year and every year we come back the the Flamingo..Your food and everything about your restaurant is amazing..Our favorite is the Lemon Pepper Shrimp, we can't get enough. We have even tried to duplicate the shrimp--no luck, yours is the best, hands down..I always tell my friends and family that they have to eat there...Thanks
Beth & Joe Burrelli, Lorain, OH
I like the food there. Dino T your book was great. Getting a autographed copy was great! Miss You... Hope u could reply to the email showed! The Food Oh It Was The Best. I might see u guys next year in april or may. It Has Been A While Since I've Been There But The Food Is Always #1! Take care have a Great Night.
Jenn Young Xena, Nanuet, NY
I have not been to your restaurant in years, but I still send people to your doors! Any time I hear of somebody making a trip to the Myrtle Beach area, I tell them to go to Flamingo's! Hands down, my favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach (lived there in '95). The deep fried lobster chunks are just to die for! Care to share the recipe?
Doug Uzelac, Boone, NC
To the Flamingo Grill I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoy and appreciate the Flamingo Grill. Of course the food is the greatest, but the service there can't be beat. It is rare to find that level of professionalism locally. It means so much to be able to enjoy a meal with friends visiting from out of town. It's always a special treat to take them there!
Ruthie Kearns, Myrtle Beach
Cagney's and Flamingo Grill are our favorite Myrtle Beach restaurants to recommend for great dining. Every layer of hospitality...decor, detail, greeting and cleanliness. Your waitstaff is efficient and warm and food quality is always consistent. Thank you for making my job as concierge easier.
Cheryl Griffith, Caravelle Resort concierge
Dear Dino T. and Dino D.,
After yet another wonderful dinner at Flamingo recently I felt the need to sit down and write you two a thank you letter.
Thank you for opening Cagney's Old Place in 1976 and Flamingo Grill in 1985, because when you did you created not only two superb restaurants but also you created countless memories that Al and I shall cherish for the duration.
Al and I have spent every special occasion and "no need for a special occasion" at either one or the other restaurant since they opened. And each time we have taken pleasure in the most delightful and well-prepared food that anyone's palate would crave. If that isn't enough, the staffs at both restaurants have always gone out of their way to be courteous and accommodating. We consider many of the employees as friends because we have known them so long for the fact that they have stayed with you through all these many years.
All and I are ever indebted to you both for providing us with great memories to carry with us into the years ahead and for future memories that we have yet to experience."
Dino T., we love your book Greek Boy and want to know when the movie will be out...
Lisa Coates, Myrtle Beach
