A wonderful place for a couple's dinner on the Reedy River

Our last night in Greenville we walked along the Reedy River and decided to try the HIgh Cotton Maverick Bar and Grill. What a find. Amanda was our waitress and she was very knowledgeable and a great help when assisting our appetizer, entree and a wonderful dessert. There is a bar you walk in... read more

Excellent service. My favorite dish here is Shrimp & Grits, a Low County (SC) Specialty Good wine selection, and true white table cloth setting

My wife and I searched the restaurants in Greenville for a high end restaurant that would provide a nice experience for the evening. After stopping in early afternoon and talking to the bartender, while he was prepping for dinner, we decided this was the place---beautiful and with a great view of the river. We picked out our table and returned... More

Great at times but it seems to be hit or miss lately. Great brunch cocktails and menu selections, the beignets are fantastic. Service drags it down to a 4 star.

This restaurant was really nice, it is expensive but worth every amount. There is a causal dress code so I would wear just normal flip flops or your stand out. I would suggest like a nice polo shirt and khaki stacks for men and a nice causal outfit for women. You don't have to be so formal like ball gowns... More

Food was interesting but expensive. A high end restaurant that does the city proud. Best in the daytime when you can see the river through the glass walls of the restaurant...so try it for lunch,

I had the shrimp and grits which was excellent. The grits were very creamy. They give you a basket of corn bread which was also good.

The food was actually quite good and portions were generous. No complaint there. But the staff is kind of snobby and the place just doesn't seem to fit the Greenville scene. Greenville is fun and casual and laid-back - High Cotton is anything but. And prices definitely on the high end. With so many great restaurants in Greenville to choose... More

This was such a disappointment. We stopped in after an event at the Peace Center. We were not greeted--had to seat ourselves. Waiter finally came to take our drink orders; got the orders wrong. We had ASK for a menu. Not he best variety/selection but we did find something. Once the food was delivered, we were essentially ignored. We had... More
