What a wonderful experience we had at this quaint little tea room in Calabash. We have been coming here since they first opened and have never once been disappointed in the food, tea or service. Kathy, the owner always comes out to greet us and chat for a few minutes. The servers are attentive and the presentation is right out of a magazine. I must add that their sandwiches are not the typical ones you find in other tea rooms. Kathy has a way of blending flavors that delicious, always making you want to come back over and over again. And we do! We never leave without taking some scones and our favorite teas home to enjoy when we can't be present. Kudos to these ladies who always make our time spent at the beach a wonderful experience.

We have been coming to Calabash Garden Tea Room for several years on our annual Myrtle Beach trip. Always love the atmosphere, the service, friendliness, the delicious food (tomato soup...love) and of course the tea. We try different teas each time we come and make sure we have different teas at our table so we can all sample the others. Today during our visit, I tried one of the new ones and didn't care for it very much. Our server was right there to make it stronger and told me if I still didn't care for it, she would be happy to get me another kind as she just wanted me to enjoy my experience. After she checked back, I did have her get me another kind that was wonderful. We enjoyed ourselves so much and loved the scone of the month as well, so very tasty. Thank you for always making our experience the best and we will see you again next year.

Recently visited the tearoom while vacationing in the Myrtle Beach area. We took my granddaughter for her first tea and we could not have chosen a better place! Our food was delicious, the atmosphere charming and the service outstanding. We all chose hats and boas to wear for teatime. They made the children's tea so special with pink lemonade in a teapot and heart shaped sandwiches and scones! We will definitely visit again!

My husband and I relocated to the Grand Strand last year from England, so our expectations of tea rooms are not of the cutesy kind. We expect great English teas and have been missing some of the wonderful cream teas we are so accustomed to. We were told about the Calabash Garden Tea Room and decided to give it a go. The delicate tray of sandwiches we received was almost too pretty to eat, but amazingly, the entire meal was even better than its perfect presentation. I haven't had soup so warming, so comforting, so lovely since I bid farewell to my loved ones across the sea. This may have been our first visit to the Calabash Garden Tea Room, but it is the start of a tradition for us.

My best friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the Valentine's Day Tea at this charming little tea room. From the savory tea sandwiches to the white and dark chocolate cherry chip scones, the chocolate dipped strawberries, even the mini chocolate cupcakes topped with a fresh raspberry could not have been better. I had the chilled strawberry soup and my friend had their tomato bisque with herbs and both were so good that we wanted to ask for another cup. Everything is so fresh and presented in such a pretty way. How lucky the locals are to have a restaurant of this cailber right in their neighborhood! The sweetest Valentine's Day!

From the minute you walk up to this precious little cottage under the trees, to the greeting by the staff you immediately relax and take a step back into time. I have been visiting Kathy and Anna's tea room for the last eight years or so and always try to bring as many friends and or family members as I can to experience the magic. I was not disappointed today! Everything was lovely from our gracious server to the tasty teas we chose, to the yummy tier of treats. Today's pineapple scones were to die for!! If you are looking for an experience with memories that will last a lifetime, you must try this tea room. It is well worth it. There are hats and boas to borrow to further enhance the experience of a lovely afternoon.

We stumbled upon this gem on our last visit 4 years ago and were excited to visit again this trip . We had reservations for the 11:30 Ultimate High Tea seating . When we arrived, our table was set and waiting for us. They had an adorable tea cup and saucer special for my daughter (17 months) so she could participate in our tea as well. They had a regular chair and a special princess pillow for her to sit on. The food was Amazing!- you should try the tomato bisque and even the children's tea had quite a lot of food on it and presented SOOO special and beautiful. With a heart shaped scone! All of our tea sandwiches were delicious and fresh ,scones and desserts to die for . The selections of tea is huge! The gift shop has been moved into the tea and we found some wonderful items to take home and remind us of our visit. If you enjoy tea, do yourself a favor and make a reservation here. We'll definitely be back when we visit Myrtle Beach again . What a delightful afternoon!

We visit the Calabash Garden Tea Room every time we come to South Carolina. OMG! They paid attention to every detail. The tea sandwich selection is all different the smoked salmon and capers, roast beef with horseradish sauce on whole wheat fingers and the Thanksgiving everyday sandwich with turkey stuffing and cranberry sauce so creative and so delicious ! just to name a few . The presentation of the tier is so beautiful, and tea selection I think over 80 to choose from. I had the chilled strawberry soup and the others had the tomato bisque soup both to die for. Kathy's scones are the Best I have ever had. Then to finish chocolate dipped strawberries and chocolate raspberry cupcakes with fresh raspberry on top and fresh fruit all while sipping my favorite pot of tea. I'm in heaven in my favorite tea room. The service is always impeccable. Not to be missed.

This was my first experience of a 'Tea' and I was very impressed with the whole event. My wife and I were with two other couples visiting the Calabash area and one of the other ladies had gone to many teas in her travels. We booked the date and when we arrived were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. I wasn't sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Food and tea was really good and left feeling full and have already began to plan a return trip. While we were there, the ladies were offered hats and boas and the guys were offered a tie. It was fun to see the ladies dress up and we joined in after some discussion.

After experiencing our first tea party at Biltmore Estate in 2008 we search while on vacation for another tea experience. We were not dissappointed when we discovered the Calabash Tea room while on vacation in South Carolina. Just over the North Carolina Boarder a few minutes from North Myrtle Beach we found the most quaint amazing tea room. This is our yearly tradition and have taken my mother and father in law a couple of times for a memorable experience. We return yearly for the best ultimate tea. The service and food is outstanding.

This is the fourth year that I've taken my grandchildren, who visit every summer from Ohio, to this darling tea room. This is the first thing they ask us to do when they arrive and always their favorite experience. From the little ribbon sandwiches to the amazingly moist and warm scones, there's no better way to spend quality time with my family. Kathy and Anna always take the time to fuss over the girls and their hats and boas are the icing on the cake. I can't wait to visit again with my lady friends during the holidays when the tea room is decorated. Just magical. I love their sweet little bakery and cupcake/espresso bar that's new to the courtyard this year as well.

While looking for things to do near the beach, I stumbled across this gem! Who would have thought that amid the golf courses, seafood restaurants, and beach outfitters would be Tea Heaven! I took my mother, my nieces, and my sister-in-law, and we had a lovely time. They had never been to High Tea before and enjoyed the fancy setting very much. I loved the lemon squeezers shaped like birds on the water glasses, perfect for southern ladies cooling off from the humid, noon day weather. I bought two to take home, as well as some of the fancy handkerchiefs they used for napkins (very clever!).

We stay in Calabash every summer. This year my mother-in-law suggested visiting the Garden Tea Room to celebrate my daughter's 6th birthday. We couldn't be more pleased. The children's offerings were fantastically suited. The decor was adorable. The hats in back made for good fun while we waited. Each setting was served in a unique tea set. The scones were certainly our favorite! Even the men were pleased!

This is a must do when my family comes to visit each year. It has become a tradition to 'Take Tea' at the Calabash Garden Tea Room. Although we have gone to Tea at other place, this is far and above all the rest. The food, the service and the fantastic selection of teas is just amazing. They have over 70 different blends of teas and some very refreshing iced teas to choose from. Whether or not you are a tea lover, you will have plenty of choices. Be sure to make reservations because it is extremely busy not only in the summer but most of the year as well!

Visiting the Calabash Garden Tea Room has become a regular stop when we come to visit my father in law in Little River, SC. My two girls and I look forward to it...we love the ambiance and the owners are very sweet. The tea selection is second to none!

Every time I visit this tea room I have the most wonderful afternoon. This tea room is in a league of it's own. The food it amazing, I have been to many tea rooms in my travels and have never had better. The service is always fantastic. Anna, Kathy and Bridget make sure you always have the best experience possible. Kudos to these ladies for their efforts and ability to make everyone feel welcome and at home.

Our family party of three adults enjoyed a delicious Apricot Melange tea along with the Ultimate Tea (high tea) - sandwiches were creative and varied, the scones were flavorful and light and the sweets, fruit centered and delicious. The whimsical addition of hat selections prior to tea afforded many laughs. We are returning next month to vacation and will definitely come back for another visit.

My mother, grandmother, and I have made coming to The Tea Room our annual tradition. I live in New York and visit my grandmother in Calabash about twice a year. We make it an absolute point to visit the Tea Room. Since day 1, I have stuck to my Apricot Melange tea. It is, in my opinion, the very best of the best. I highly recommend this place to everyone in this area!!!

I am a 'local' and this was my third visit to this charming tea room. The Calabash Garden Tea Room is the perfect place to get away from the busy world and relax in an atmosphere of quiet music, enjoy an excellent variety of teas (I had the Coconut Almond - wonderful), and savor the delicious food. The strawberry soup was a unique surprise and their scones are to die for. I love all the things that make up this 'tea' - the unique tea pots, lemon squeezers, handkerchief napkins, mixed cups/saucers/plates to the hats and boas you are invited to wear during tea. Kathy, the owner, has done everything to make you feel pampered and special. The service is very good, but not rushed or intrusive, and the teas and food, well they are delightfully delicious! I highly recommend this charming and whimsical tea room!

I recently took my niece to the Calabash Garden Tea Room for her birthday. We stayed in Myrtle Beach, but the drive was less than 15 minutes, which is wonderful if you want a few fun hours out of the sun! My niece is 10 and was completely delighted with the experience! The selection of teas was wonderful- I believe there were close to 80. I would highly recommend both the Bubblegum Tea (for both kids and adults) and the Vanilla Grapefruit Tea. My niece loved dressing up in the hats and boas; however it would have been nicer if they were not in the restroom for us to try them on. The tables were far enough apart to have conversations, but close enough to enjoy other guests' selection of hats. The food was very good, maybe a little less than I have seen in other tea rooms, but delicious none the less. The service was excellent and all of the staff were friendly. We definitely plan on making this an annual tea trip when we visit Myrtle Beach.

Had a wonderful, relaxing meal with delicious tea and impeccable service. The decor from the table settings to the walls was spot on and made for good conversation. I came home with some special tea available from the adorable Gift Shop. When my Ya Ya sisters and I visit NC again, we'll be sure to come back. It will be our tradition!

Four of my friends and myself went to the Tea Room while on a girls beach trip. We had such a good time the first visit, we decided to go again. We dressed up with hat's and boa's to heighten the experience. The food was great (especially the cupcakes) and the service was exceptional. I would recommend it to everyone.

This place is great! Great tea, never over-steeped or too bitter or astringent. The foodis great, and the service is impeccable. The gift shop and teas available to take home are great. It makes it much easier to get hard-to-find teas. Definitely give this place a try!

Calabash Garden Tea Room surpasses any other my tea room experience. I brought my best girl friend to tea room and she was surprise at the wonderful experience and everyone was wonderful.

I wish my mother was around so we could have enjoyed the experience together.

There is something special about being pampered in an intimate space that is so charmingly decorated that you can't help but take a deep breath and sigh with pleasure. The Calabsh Garden Tea Room delivers all of that and a full tea service that is scrumptious from start to finish (and offers a gluten-free service that doesn't cut corners). As a full time resident, it's a joy to have this teashouse right around the corner!

I've visited the Calabash Tea Room multiple times while visiting family in NC. Though it's a 45 min drive from family, it's totally worth it!! The ambiance is quaint, the food delish and the owners/staff are extremely friendly! I honestly can not think of a single negative thing to say about this tea room!

I have made repeat visits with lots of friends, granddaughters(5 and 8 years old--heart shaped PB&J were a big hit!)and my two daughters to this tearoom--probably because we are NEVER disappointed. Cathy and Anna are gracious and friendly and the food (starting with the tomato basil soup--Yum!)is the best of any tearoom I have been too. I have been to lots of tearooms in many states and I am not exaggerating--Calabash is the best for ambiance, food and friendliness! You will not be disappointed.

I visited the Calabash Garden Tea room last week while on vacation and had a wonderful time. I went with my mother and my two daughters and we enjoyed the tea, the food, and the overall charm of the place. The gift shop is across the way and I stopped off for some souvenirs and tea to bring home. Overall we had a great time. I look forward to returning the next time I am in Calabash.
