I thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The food and atmosphere was excellent. The outside seating is nice also on the plaza.

you can sit outside, they have heaters to keep you warm. The shrimp and grits were excellent, the scallops were great. Our service was excellent. Great wine list.

Avoid this place. I was hungry for a nice southern steak so I ordered the Filet Minon with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was so spicy the seasoning overran the flavors of everything else. I was ill for two days after eating there and the only thing I looked forward to about Greenville after that was the flight out.

My husband and I had heard about Sassafras from a top 10 review and it deserves the top ten rating. Imaginative twists on traditional southern comfort food. We had the southern fried chicken and the meatloaf topped with crumbled country ham and onions, full of flavor. The side dishes were terrific, as were the hush puppies that come with the... More

My sister asked if I wanted upscale southern food, I reluctantly agreed. Boy was I glad I had! They have shrimp and grits to die for, a beef sirloin tip spinach salad to make you drool and desserts you could wear on your thighs! Atmosphere is dark but very classy. Outside seating is available and a cheers type bar. LOVE... More

This was our fourth time eating here. We were celebrating our anniversary. Told the server, Stacey. She seemed nice but was just terrible on her service. Our water glasses went empty more than once and we even ordered drinks. The drinks also went empty. On our last anniversary, the waiter gave us a piece of dessert with a candle in... More

Would like this place except they have an older clientele that complains if you are enjoying your friends and company. I have been to this place twice and both times have been told the group was too loud. Never have been told that with friends at other Greenville restaurants.

The fish special of the day was sanpper over a bed of spinach and grits. It was prepared very nicely with a carmelized crust but was fork tender. I needed to cut one piece to make it edible. The wine tasted good and bottles are half-price on Wednesdays.

The food was excellent, the service was impeccable. Atmosphere was very good, and the building is very historically preserved: it was a tobacco warehouse before downtown declined. Went for our anniversary, and would love to go back.

We arrived early for our reservation on an evening to celebrate a birthday. There was no problem in seating us early and we were shown to a very cozy table in the room farthest from the bar and entrance. The interior of the restaurant is warm and fun with walls of nicely exposed brick and archways and other industrial design... More
