By taking a short walk, we got to experience a behind-the-scenes" look at a number of popular restaurants downtown. It was fun to meet and hear from the chefs about their approach and specialty foods. We knew immediately which ones we wanted to try again! (And they give you a 20% off coupon to do just that!)

John Nolan gives a informative and fantastic overview of the city, it's history, and future developments coming to this jewel of a southern city. In addition to all of this information sharing and learning with John, the guide,... More

This was the most enjoyable tour that I have ever taken. Our tour guide, John, and all the chefs were fun, informative and super entertaining!!! The food was spectacular, but you MUST COME HUNGRY!!!! This tour is worth every penny and I can't wait to share it with more friends and family that come to visit us in Greenville.

Delicious food, a lovely city, and an engaging guide all combine to make this a wonderful treat. 3 hours of relaxing eating and touring (mostly eating). We are residents of Greenville, but this was a great way to learn about our own city.

This was a gift from my brother for my birthday and my boyfriend and I loved it! We both grew up in Greenville and have been to many of the restaurants but we learned many new fun facts and tried dishes we hadn't had before! Before the tour was even over, we were discussing who we wanted to get this... More

My boyfriend and I received this tour as a gift. We had gone on the West End Walking Tour with John before, but this was a completely new experience. He knows the area incredibly well and seems to have a great relationship with the chefs on the tour. He chose excellent restaurants that really highlight Greenville's cuisine. The food was... More

I went on this tour with a couple of friends to celebrate my birthday, and it was perfection. Every restaurant was perfection. Loved the atmosphere, loved the dishes and loved the history infused throughout the tour. The staff at these restaurants are knowledgeable and care about their product. If something isn't to your liking, they'll make it right. John is... More

I really couldn't imagine a better way to be introduced to Greenville's culinary scene. John is totally laid-back, knowledgeable and entertaining. The food was amazing, innovative and incredibly tasty. Plus the history tour we got while walking between restaurants was really neat. John is obviously passionate about both food and history and conveys both interests well to his guests. All... More

John & Table 301 did a stellar job for our company VIP event in January 2015! Wonderful menu selection and beverage pairings and tons of fun facts & information on Greenville. This will be something we return to for sure!
