Fun atmosphere and good food too

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.

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

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.

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 group for a late dinner. Blue Crab Nachos were... 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.
