A large party, A birthday celebration, A sweet potato cake brought in by the sorority sisters... all flowed well at this cute restaurant. Clearly, they have had occasions like this before! Entrees were met with varying degrees of excitement, but particularly enjoyed the 8oz filet mignon topped with the pimento cheese! Service was accommodating and my only regret was being... More

Enjoyed this place for an anniversary dinner. The atmosphere was great and the service was excellent. They had a good selection of dishes and there was plenty to eat. My favorite was an appetizer: pimento cheese fondue with homemade chips.

Nice bar area and food is always great. Try the tuna over grits. Dark bar area near door and half off wine nights as well. Great downtown spot.

I once travelled to Greenville frequently for work and Sassafras was my favorite place to eat. I haven't been back in three years and couldn't wait to eat here when work sent me back. It was exactly as I had remembered. The food is always delicious and perfectly prepared and the service is wonderful. You won't be disappointed with anything... More

A downtown fixture, tucked away in a newly renovated Plaza, situated in an interesting, old, brick, building. Outdoor seating available. Cozy bar. Friendly service. Family owned. The Southern-style Nachos are great! Food is delish. Full bar.

We visited on a Friday night. Make sure you get a reservation on the weekend because this restaurant will fill up quickly. Seated immediately and server took drink order and app order. My wife loves the chocolate martini. I think it is called something else, but you get the point. We had the spicy pork for app. It is spicy.... More

We had our rehearsal dinner at Sassafras on 5/28. It was perfect. Walking distance from the Hyatt and everyone loved their food! Service was great and we had our own private room for the party. The manager was very nice and the price was great for the food choices we picked!! I highly recommend this place! Absolutely no complaints!

What a great meal we had here. The service was fantastic!!! It's a little tricky to find but once we got here we were impressed. I had the chicken the waiter recommended and it didn't disappoint. Great food. Great service. I'd be back!!

Went to sassafras with another couple. Made reservations which I recommend. The dining area is very dim, three out of four had trouble reading the menu. I had the crab cake dinner. It was just ok. Bonefish has better crab cakes. Prices would be ok if food was great. But it wasn't. I doubt we will go back.

Thank vlorak
