Great food not great service

Came here with another couple and really liked it. I had the fried chicken which was awesome. The other 3 had the Pimento filet and was equally delicious. Only downside was our server wasn't the friendliest dude I've ever met. He was a bald guy with a deep voice and seemed irritated at any request... read more

This is a great place for an intimate dinner. Everything that we ordered was delicious. Our appetizer was the pulled pork egg rolls. YUMMY! I had the filet with pimento and my husband had the stuffed fried chicken. Great food!

In town for a wedding. Had a planned dinner for about 20 guest. The facility was very accomodating and put us in a fairly secluded area. Two dedicated servers, and the dinner went pretty smoothly, even with some small children. The food was excellent, especially the Filet special, and the Ribeye. Great atmosphere as well. Only complaint was it is... More

My wife and I chose Sassafras because it was her daughter's favorite restaurant when she went to Furman. My wife had the She Crab soup with a small portion of the potato cake and shrimp. I had the Louisiana fried catfish, which came with collard greens and sweet potato fries. We were very pleased with our food, leaving barely a... More

Good southern-style food and really love the fried oysters in season. They also have good entrée-size salads - really good with salmon on top. It also has a fun bar atmosphere if you just want to come for drinks or to eat at the bar.

We had four people in our group from Charleston coming to enjoy a birthday dinner and no one was disappointed! A friend from Simpsonville recommended it to us when we asked about a downtown restaurant. The salmon was delicious as well as the tuna, the skirt steak special and especially the beef tips. The portions were large and I should... More

We had dinner last night at Sassafras Southern Bistro which we found thru Trip Advisor. Our inn keeper told us it was a place the locals tend to visit which intrigued us as local hangouts are usually better than tourist hangouts. Our server, Trent, came to the table within minutes of our being seated, took our drink orders and left... More

It is important to note that we have previously found Sassafras to be a top restaurant with excellent cuisine, ambiance, food, and service. However our last trip there was not like previous visits. We did not have reservations which was apparently taken poorly by the host staff. First we were asked if outside seating was alright. Since it as 95... More

My wife and I made reservations at what we thought was going to be a 5 star restaurant. Boy, were we wrong. We were seated right away, but it took what seemed forever for our waitress to stop by the table and take drink orders. After receiving our drinks, we placed our orders. My wife chose the crab cakes with... More

The fried chicken isn't your grandma's fried chicken...it's better. My party ordered steak, tuna, salmon and shrimp and grits and everyone was pleased.
