I made my reservation through Open Table with a note regarding the birthday and a request for a table with a view. The staff... read more

My husband and I ate here a couple of weekends ago and we will go back on our next trip to Greenville. Our waiter knew all about the local ingredients and explained each dish wonderfully. He also talked with us about the history of the trail and waterway, which provided a nice view for dinner. It was unusually cold for... More

I went here for dinner after getting off of work after passing by it a few times while out for a walk. I went in and was seated by a very friendly hostess. While waiting for my server, which wasn't long, I looked around and noticed that it is a large and open space with a modern feel and plenty... More

Elegant but not overpriced. They have a bar with a terrific bar tender and a special beer menu. Everything was delicious. Creamed kale superb, as were the grits. The trout over potatoes recommended, the soup was fantastic carrot with duck rilettes. Too full to try dessert, but choices looked great. Try a spring green cocktail.

Lovely spot! Attentive staff, but we'd asked to move to a table by the window and were not accommodated. The table that we'd asked for remained vacant during our whole meal. Tony was very knowledgeable and his recommendations were spot on. It was clear he knew the menu, the sourcing of the ingredients, and what was likely to be offered... More

I always assumed that High Cotton was a retail clothing store every time I passed it while walking in downtown. When I found out it was a highly rated restaurant, however, I made reservations there for my parents' anniversary dinner this past weekend. We showed up earlier than our reservation time, but that wasn't a problem. They immediately escorted us... More

My family and I come here before we go see shows at the peace center and we have never been disappointed! Make sure to go early enough to enjoy your email, this place usually has clientele who wants to spend more time at dinner.

Boy, they did it right! The location is amazing with a view of twinkling lights over a busy downtown and great upscale southern cuisine! Perfect for a date night or business dinner. Knowledgeable and professional staff. A great place to have a glass of wine if you don't have time for dinner. Live entertainment in the bar area is common.
