Nice stuff

This place would be hard to beat, both because its operators evidence striving very hard to be superior and that their offerings are as varied as they are. Suffice it to say that, once you've been courteously seated (outside, if possible, on one of the eight months of the year in which that's... read more

Rustic place with good food and a good selection of craft beer and other beverages. Smoked meats and BBQ are their signature dishes but menu has a wide range of items ob both the dinner and lunch menu's.

My wife and I loved this place when we lived in downtown Greenville. There are still some good items on the menu but be sure to pick their specialty items, like the beer chicken. Things have changed a bit over the years in terms of quality. Yesterday's meal just didn't have the same flavors. A bit boring. Sorry but there... More

I had the bbq and my husband had the brisket. Both were very tasty. My favorite part was the potato cake...it was the die for. Look forward to visiting again very soon.

Well, this is my wife's go-to place for friends who like ribs. But, this last experience may be my last visit. Staff overwhelmed, food and drinks slow if you get it at all. We sat down ordered. waited, reminded the staff. Sat some more. Food order was messed up. Drinks came but refills or re-orders came only with repeated requests.... More

we love it so much we plan to go back again tonight. The prices are great and the platters are huge! We ordered the Triple play and shared it. Great ambiance and the servers were great. They give suggestions and seem to enjoy their job!

I have to say there are some amazing places to eat in Greenville, but I have to give this place the Crown. I have eaten at amazing places all over the U.S. and some over seas, but the ones that always stick out in my mind are the ones where the service is impeccable. Obviously the food was good. Our...

My most favorite restaurant in downtown Greenville SC! I have eaten here many times for work and pleasure. Tonight I had dinner with my husband for our wedding anniversary. The best meal ever! my husband John had prime rib and okra and mashed potatoes. I selected the filet with their awesome Mac and cheese and spinach casserole. I ate more... More

After a short wait we were seated. The service was very good and our server Melanie was super friendly. The food was awesome and not that expensive. The fried green tomatoes were very good.

Loved this restaurant's atmosphere. Very comfortable and nice wait staff. The menu was really huge. You can pretty much get anything you want. I was disappointed in the BBQ, though. I found both the pork and beef to be very dry. Yes, they give you 4 different kinds of sauces you can add on your own, but I would have... More
