The diverse menu was created to accommodate a variety of diner preferences with meat & cheese plates, small plates to “graze and nibble,” and main dishes. Guests are invited to take their time while "trying a little bit of that and a little bit of that" or a "whole lot of whatever they like".

This restaurant has a beautiful view. We ate at an off time and got a window table. The outdoor tables were full. The special was salmon with many things in a broth and butter beans. All the ingredients were SOOOO fresh. AMAZING dish that used local produce. The sangria was very good as well. I'd go back in a second.... More

We have been here a couple times for lunch. Wraps, salads and sandwiches have been very good. Not expensive. Great views of the Reedy River from the dining room or patio. Great place for a leisurely lunch.

My daughter-in-law and I had a delicious late lunch after walking through the park. We split the Grilled Veggie Wrap and the Moroccan Chicken Salad Wrap, both of which were excellent! We also had the White and Red Sangrias, which were refreshing. It was not a lot of food, but that was ok, because we went to get gelato afterwards!

The Lazy Goat is not cheap, and the food lives up to the reviews. Nobody at my table had a complaint. We gobbled up roasted Brussels sprouts like we didn't spit the offenders out as kids. Then it became embarrassing as I pretty much gobbled up the saffron risotto, and burrata cheese. My mother would not have been proud of... More

My husband and I visited Greenville a couple months back and I fell in love with this restaurant. There was a small wait even though we had made reservations and then it took our waitress a few minutes to say hello, however it is understandable when this restaurant is always packed! And everything just got better as the night went... More

Maybe the goat is lazy but the chef certainly is not! Absolutely delicious food with amazing flavors. View of the falls and fantastic service. We brought two children and shared three appetizers, one pizza, and one dessert. We had plenty to eat and left satisfied and happy! Can't wait to eat here again!

This review may be skewed coming from a couple that don't get many chances to dine out sans little ones, but we totally appreciated the outdoor patio overlooking a beautiful setting of downtown Greenville by candlelight and a full moon. The food...maybe we've had better tapas but they were reasonably priced considering a tapas bill can easily add up. Their... More

Stumbled across the lazy goat last Monday and was not disappointed. Everything that we had was great!! This was the highlight spot on our trip to Greenville, we look forward to going back. Keep up the good work.

The first time I went with a group. Their cook did not show up or something and they were shorthanded so food was cold. The second time I went was by myself. While the food was good the service was a bit self-absorbed. Spent more time talking to each other then to the customers.

My wife and I ate here with some friends and we were looking for something light since it was early in the afternoon. They had a very good selection of appetizers that actually made a great meal to share. The appetizers were spaced appropriately so that the table was not loaded. Our waitress made some excellent recommendations on wine and... More
