Had a delightful meal late in February with a group of 9. Service was attentive. Everyone enjoyed their food. My eggplant parm was great. My husband loved the veal marsala -- we will be back again soon. The atmosphere is so much brighter than before, love it. Only comment, the chairs are uncomfortable, the waiter said they plan on correcting that.

Because I ordered "take-out", I really cannot comment as to the dine-in Atmosphere experience, seating time or the bar area, but the new restaurant decor makeover is refreshed and looks larger. Old World doesn't open until 4:30pm, but I called around 4pm and placed a "to-go" order. My order was ready in about 25 minutes and I did not have to wait once I arrived to pick up my order. I requested Linguine w/Clams in the red sauce (white sauce is an option also) and I enjoyed the Beef Lasagna. My friend said he really enjoyed his meal, but since I don't eat fish, I did not sample his entree. The lasagna was excellent and the sauce tasted as though it was definitely homemade. Both meals were generous portions. We both thought our meal was reasonably priced. I'm not sure what kind of bread one is served when you actually "dine-in", but my take-out had a cold, cut portion of french bread that came with a small container of parmesan, but I heated it in the microwave. I've had the lasagna from Carrabba's (which is practically right next door to Old World Italian) and the lasagna I had this evening from Old World was far superior. Old World is a locally owned, independent business and I prefer to shop and dine "Local" in my community. The new menu does only offer a limited selection, but I believe there is something for everyone to enjoy and there are a few selections targeted specifically for kids. There is no scenic view nor outdoor seating but the hostess and waitstaff were friendly. I will definitely return here.

My wife and I had dinner at Old World for the first time since the restaurant had its make-over for another one of those "TV" shows. Since moving to Murrells Inlet 8 years ago, we have been dining here at least two or three times a month - it was one of our favorite restaurants on the beach. Sadly to say, tonight will probably be our last time visiting this old friend. The changes have left the restaurant lacking charm and personality. The menu selections are limited with all of our favorite dishes removed from the menu. Gone is the complimentary side of pasta with your meal, locals free meal tickets, and the change from china type plates to plastic plates is just wrong. Thanks for the memories, but now we will have to find another Italian restaurant.

If you think Bolognese should be chopped up meatballs in a light red sauce this is the perfect place. Very dissappointed. My wife had a dish with shrimp and scallops and was up half the night sick to her stomach. All for only $70.00 dollars.

I've been Italian all my life, I have cooked professionally, and I'm extremely picky about whether the Italian food I'm being served is cooked and prepared simply and correctly. I've eaten at the other Italian restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area. There is none better than than Old World Italian in Murrells Inlet. Excellent food, interesting menu, and a warm, friendly atmosphere. When I go there, I feel like I'm at home among family. The family owners are hard-working, good people, and I'm proud to call them my friends.

Small store front place in a strip mall, it may take a while to be seated. Good food, small place, go figure! That said there are no other negatives. George, the owner, treats everyone like family when they walk through the door. What the place lacks in decor, they more than make up for in food quality! We dine there at least once, every time we are in Murrells Inlet. Best real Italian food around.

Three of us dined in this restaurant in June 2012. I can honestly say we will never return to it. The lettuce in the salads were of a store bought brand & not the freshest that should have been. My wife had spaghetti with garlic & oil but it lacked garlic. Father Scotti had spaghetti & meatballs. He asked twice for additional sauce since the original plate had only a dollop of marinara sauce. I had spaghetti with meatballs & mushrooms. The mushrooms were raw, yes raw. I also asked for additional sauce since it was thin & runny. On a bright note, the bread & butter that was served was fresh & plentiful. Since none of us finished the meal, the polite waitress asked if we would like to take the leftovers home. Our response was throw it where it belongs, in the garbage. In our honest opinion, this restaurant is over rated & not worth the prices they ask.

My family and I ate at Old World for the first time in May on a trip to Murrell's Inlet ! And it was, by far, the best Italian food we have ever eatten ! Don't let the location fool you, because looks can be decieving ! The seatting was fast, which was nice for a family with small children and the service was awesome ! I would recommend Old World to everyone :-)!!!

Our family of 6 went to dinner tonight and had the best time. From a friendly greeting of the owner to fabulous service and excellent food - we were more than satisfied! My Dad had been here before and couldn't wait to take us. We're all smiling and will be back!

My husband and I make our annual visit to Old World usually in the fall. The restaurant is one of our main reasons for visiting Myrtle Beach! We love George and the entire staff! Sometimes there is a short waiting period before being seated, but it is well worth the wait.

I have lived in Murrells Inlet since 2009 and had not had a chance to try this restaurant, boy I was dissapointed! I went with my wife and was seated promptly. Our waiter was aloof there was something missing perhaps attentivness? We ordered Bruschetta, That was the only good part of the meal but a small portion as an appatizer, it came out after the salad and I had to ask twice when it would come to the table. Anyway I had lasagna,$16.00. A small deep dish portion that tasted like a frozen dinner, one layer of cheese melted on top of flat noodles with what tasted like jar sauce and ground meat or was that compressed sawdust! The salad was stale and so small I would not feed it to a rabbit. My wife had Fettucini Alfredo with chicken if you could call it that. Seemed like noodles in milk! that was $20.25. The best part was having to hear young childres yelling and running in the back of the dining room, they were relatives of the owner, please take them to the playground or leave them home with the baby sitter! For what we spent I will never go back, there are too many other choices in the area. Please save your hard erned retirement or vacation money and find another dining establishment!

I used to work for George and Theresa. They are truly genuine people, and were awesome bosses. The food made by "young George" and Theresa is incredible, from her fried mozzerella to chicken papa giallo (?sp) and chefs creation (bow tie pasta in a tomato/vodka sauce with ground sausage), you will definitely NOT be sorry. The food, the staff and the owners are definitely NOT to be missed.
