I agree with the other review that this place isn't really a destination for food. If I'm in the neighborhood I'll stop by, but I'm not making any effort to go here. You can't take home any of the happy hour specials which is odd. I've never see that before. So beware - if you get a happy hour special... More

We live nearby and frequent this establishment. He reviews I've read appear to be from not very "selective" reviewers. My opinion, great for locals, but not a destination restaurant. Definitely not a date night. Possibly a casual "let's go out for a local bite" place. A bit unclean inside, not the friendliest bartenders, and oddly dark in one area and... More

When you are in the mood for a great casual meal, You really can't go wrong here. The food from salads to burgers to steaks is very good. The staff is very courteous and attentive. Great selection of beers and wines too. We love going there and will be back over and over again!

We visited on a Monday. Mondays their special is oysters in the half shell. We got 14 oysters for a bit over $11. My wife had the seafood gumbo and I had the pulled pork sandwich. We washed it all down with some microbrewed beer. If I ever decide to go back to South Carolina, it will be because of... More

Very good bar food, also known for Oysters. Parking can be a challenge in the summer but it is worth it.

The food is delicious, and the interior is somewhat unique. It's got kind of a dark, smokey bar room feel on one side, and a rustic dining area on the other. I've never seen a restaurant with an interior quite like it. The service was good--no frills and reasonably fast. Overall, the Blockhouse provides a good, consistent restaurant experience.

Avoid if you can. Roaches crawl on the tables and generally smells nasty. If you want a bar beverage and won't know what everything looks like, this place is for you

My wife and I have been to the Blockhouse on several occasions. But this one takes the cake. We were approximately an hour away from the restaurant, and decided to call ahead to check on specials they may have with the oysters, the manager on duty said we have half price oysters till 7pm, so we headed on our way....

First off, you will never get a Hotel in Greenville to recommend the Blockhouse to you. It is a local restaurant ! WE had a new friend in Greenville that recommended it, or we would have NEVER tried it. On Monday nights, I believe, Oysters are 2 for 1. Cannot beat that price ! The food is excellent! We do...
