We had a guys dinner tonight and wanted an upscale experience . . . so we chose Bistro 217. We chose to sit outside, which is covered and made very comfortable. The outside seating has a more laid back vibe and social bar while the inside provides a more quiet business casual vibe with its own bar. We were luck to be seated in Rebecca’s section . . . Ask for her if you can. Great service and very personable. After dinner, the owner came by to make sure everything was perfect. I started with an Old Fashioned. There were 3 Rye Whiskey selections to choose from. The cocktail was perfect. A selection of house made breads came quickly. The other guys chose the Filet and the Scallops. We were provided a choice of 3 specials. I chose one of the specials, which was a cornmeal crusted Mahi with butternut squash and andouille risotto finished with parmesan and a beurre blanc sauce topped with a micro salad. I left the plate clean! There is a separate dessert menu with everything made in house including an Elvis Special. Yes, Elvis was in the house (he is the sous chef, Elvis Xhani). I had a flight of home made creams including chocolate cayenne, pistachio and coffee which chosen from a total of eight flavors. We finished with coffee. Go on Fridays - one of the bartenders serves as entertainment in the outdoor section with great guitar covers of easy listening tunes to eat, drink and socialize too. The sound level was perfect and did not interfere with conversation. If your near Pawleys Island or even a little north, bypass Murrell’s Inlet and come a little further . . . You will not be disappointed.

We loved everything about this place. We ended up with a delicious side salad with the champagne vinaigrette and at 6.00 per plate was an excellent deal. We shared several unique appetizers including this red snapper. Our waiter Rich was attentive and gracious. We will definitely come back and think this is quite the hidden gem in the myrtle beach area.

Went here for lunch. The atmosphere and ambience is really cool. Have both inside and outside seating, perfect spot. Staff is super friendly and our server was outstanding. No complaints at all about that. Now the food. Started off with a cup of she crab and it was good. Wifey got the fish tacos and she said they were good. Lots of food but was supposed to come with tortilla chips and instead got some cajun seasoned chips that tasted awful and did not go with anything else on plate. I ordered wrong. Foolishly I ordered the gyro and I should have known better than to get that at this place. Big portion of dry, frozen lamb. Super bland, stay away. It came with these cajun seasoned potatoes that were bland. The seasoning did not work and they were not crispy. A little salt and crispy finish would have been way better. The side of greek salad was best thing on plate by far. Hopefully I just got the worst thing on menu but no hurry to go back.

I met some friends here for a late lunch and were absolutely delighted by the relaxing ambience this darling place exudes. Anne was gracious enough to take time out of her busy day and chat with us awhile. Will definitely return.
