“Lovely Dinner in an Intimate Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

My husband and I recently spent a lovely evening enjoying a wonderful meal at Sassafras Southern Bistro in Greenville. Our meal began with a lovely pinot grigio which was chilled to perfection. We shared the blue crab pimento cheese fondue with nachos (small serving is more than enough for two), followed by the best house salad we've had at any restaurant in Greenville. We both ordered steak; my husband had the filet with pimento cheese and I had the chimichurri ribeye: outstanding!!! The waitstaff is efficient, friendly, and very service-oriented. This restaurant will definitely be one of our "standards" in this area.

“Yummy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

We asked our son's friend, who is a local, where we could eat good southern food without everything being fried. He recommended Sassafras and it was great. I had the meatloaf and my daughter had the scallops. It is really difficult to find a restaurant that properly prepares scallops but Sassafras did it to perfection. We had a very nice meal and the wine list was reasonable.
