One of the local faves....so you know it has to be good. Slightly off the beaten path...actually behind Masts General Store in the plaza area near the center of downtown. Close to parking on either Main or Washington. Open Tues through Sat. Closed Sun and Mon. Came with a large business... read more

The four of us arrived on time for our reservation and were seated immediately. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We ordered drinks and those who ordered water were not brought drinks because they had run out of glasses, even though the restaurant was 2/3rds full. We were not able to have a glass for our beers and therefore... More

A visit to Greenville would not be complete without a trip to Sassafras. Excellent key lime martini. Give it a try. No time for the fried oysters.

I brought ten people that were in town from my company for a dinner at sassafras. We started with a few appetizers. The spicy pork is phenomenal. I had the filet with pimento cheese and it was terrific. Everyone was very happy and very full when we left. I saw some had the meatloaf, the mahi mahi, and they all... More

Sass is one of my favorite places to eat in Downtown Greenville. It's ambiance makes it a great romantic stop for me and my husband. The girls and I go there a lot for happy hour and have no problem eating at the bar. The pork bites, or the nachos are staples at our table typically. Sassafras also has some... More

Sassafras is one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff is friendly and the food is so tasty! I highly recommend the pork and fillet, two of my favorite entrées on the menu. I've never had a bad experience here.

My husband and I go here as a couple and with friends. I've also done many business dinners here. I always know clients and co-workers will be taken care of. The food has always been great and the service awesome. They always have nice specials if you want to deviate from the normal menu. Recently the menu has been updated... More

We arranged to meet out of town friends at Sassafras and they were charmed. The food is creative yet still has the best of plain southern food. There is decent she crab soup, and as a northerner, it is one of the rare places I enjoy the use of grits to enhance some dishes. The venue is attractive, with the... More
