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.

I went here for happy hour on a Saturday. The restaurant has happy hour 7 days a week and it is greatly priced. Glasses of wine are $4 and cocktails are $5. They also have some food specials that are very reasonably priced. The place is very beautiful and a very upscale restaurant. I am glad we came for happy... More

We booked a table downstairs overlooking the river, for a special occasion. Had not been to Sunday brunch there in several years and decided to try it again. We had the steak and eggs, french toast and poached eggs and crabcakes. All of the plates were delicious. In short the food was outstanding. I had heard the service was slow... More

On our last night in Greenville area, we drove into downtown looking for a dinner site. While walking next to the river, we noticed waitstaff prepping table settings by the downstairs of a restaurant. After walking up to Main Street and walking further along, we turned around and decided to try High Cotton. What a delightful surprise. Promptly greeted, we... More

We visited High Cotton on Valentine's Day which is definitely a busy night. We had reservations for 8 p.m. and we arrived at 8:05. Upon arrival, we gave the hostess our valet ticket which she happily validated and we were quickly led to our table. I was very impressed because the restaurant was full and we did not have to...

My husband treated me to High Cotton for Valentine's Day. We had never eaten here but had heard very good things about it. The food was delicious! The prices are expensive so this is the type of place you would probably want to eat for a special occasion. I do plan to go back again. My husband would recommend the... More

We arrived in Greenville, SC during Valentines Day weekend with a the show Wicked in town. We asked the hotel concierge for a recommendation and help in securing a reservation for 8. Their first suggestion was High Cotton and they were able to 'find' us a reservation. The menu had a great selection of appetizers, small plates and entrees. Our... More
