Meeting friends for dinner

We meet neighbors at the bar had a drink before going out on the patio. We all ate off of the starter menu. The food was good, but all was outstanding. A few of the dishes had blue cheese dressing which was watery and kind of bland. Service was spotty, with refills of drinks taking a long time.

Nothing special about the food or atmosphere. The service was good and they are able to accomodate large parties.

I had heard a lot about this place and was looking forward to a business lunch there. We ordered a bunch of appetizers for the table: The Pimento Chees, Fried Green Tomatoes and Smoked Chipotle Wings. Nobody ate the wings. The other items were good, but not what you would expect from a finer restaurant like Smoke on the Water.... More

There aren't a ton of casual restaurants in downtown Greenville, and this one is... above average. The BBQ is nothing terribly special. It is in a great location and offers nice outdoor seating. They also have an awesome happy hour. It is a good, reasonably priced, place to go for a casual night with some friends, but if you are... More

This is my favorite place to eat in downtown Greenville. I love eating outside in the nice weather. The pulled pork is so good, and I like the choice of sauces they bring out. The potato salad is really good. My first choice of places to relax and enjoy a nice meal.

This is a great restaurant in all aspects. The food is incredible. The BBQ is unmatched and they have four different kinds of sauce to choose from. I like to mix different ones. The side items are also awesome. I recommend the mac and cheese and the collard greens. Service is almost always very attentive. Happy hour at the bar... More

The smoked prime rib is the best prime rib I've ever eaten. Very reasonably priced, great location downtown. Go there. You won't be disappointed.
