Try the fried goat cheese! It was delicious! The views of the riverfront were very nice. All of our dishes were great. The polenta with vegetables was tasty and fresh

We loved our dining experience at The Lazy Goat. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The atmosphere is casual elegance. The view is so nice and the service was very good. We started with white sangria. I have had better but it was good. We decided to share (for the four of us) the fried goat cheese, Moroccan lamb,... More

Situated on the banks of the Reedy River overlooking The Peace Center, this restaurant is prime real estate. The interior is not particularly comfortable or user-friendly. The chairs, tables, floors all look a little worn and shabby. This is not a "white tablecloth restaurant", but should be--our table was wet and sticky as we sat down. The very limited menu... More

Great flavors, and always consistent. I take clients here on a regular basis and it's always a crowd pleaser. Great views from tables. Paella was great.

The service was mediocre at best. We were seated on the patio (fantastic atmosphere) but then it started to rain. We were not given the option of moving inside. When it began to poor we moved ourselves and plates to the lobby. At that point a table immediately became available. We began with olives and almonds which were okay but... More

Nice menu and easy to get a table. Nice view of the river. Nothing exceptional, but a nice meal and good service. A varied menu.

As a birthday event I requested this for dining. We were greated warmly seated swiftly and served by friendly staff. The odd thing for this establishment are the chairs, not two at the table are alike. When our orders arrived they were extremely tasty. The middle eastern flare with sauces and such were a hit. The overall experience was fantastic... More

The food is not the main attraction at this restaurant! The wonderful atmosphere and the incredible views of downtown Greenville and the Reedy River are! The food & service are very good, but this is the place to go if you want to experience what Greenville is all about!
