Description: Roost provides a welcoming, friendly and unobtrusive environment where you'll feel a sense of community. Side by side we nestle together and experience how it feels to share a space, to share a city, to share a world. We savor how good food can taste when it's a part of our community. Our menu features local, organic, and seasonal foods of the highest quality. Talented Chefs design and create menu items and present them with skill and confidence in our show kitchen. The menu is priced to fit every budget and every occasion.

Not enough on the menu to choose from. Buffet is too expensive! Servers are great. Opens early. Food was very good.

We have been to the Roost on our last trip to Greenville but were under the impression it had closed. Were we ever glad to discover our info was incorrect. This is a great lunch spot when you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and the parade of people up and down the street.

My duck confit taos were very tasty and the waitress suggested a special ravioli that my wife ordered. It was great! They change their menu on a regular basis based on what is available so---the ravioli might not be available. The staff is usually pretty good at recommending dishes.

Love this place.

Thank Anthony L

Anthony,

We are very pleased to hear about your recent visit to Roost Restaurant. We greatly appreciate you sharing your positive feedback with us! The duck tacos are always a favorite! You are right, our menu does change seasonally so we can continue to use fresh, local ingredients year round! We sincerely appreciate your kind words and look forward to having you back at Roost again soon!

My husband and I had lunch here to celebrate closing on our home. We came in around 1pm and the place was pretty quiet. The menu was ok- I had the chicken salad, hubby has a burger. Service was SLOW!!!!! After our food was delivered, the server never came back to check on us. Would not come here again- there are many other restaurants downtown with more inventive food and BETTER service!

We went to the Roost and had a fantastic outdoor table with a perfect view of the Jazz band playing. Our waiter was so nice and helpful and we never lacked for refill on our drinks. We only had a couple of appetizers, but the homemade Hummus was to die for! Perfect location, great atmosphere and I will definitely stop here again!

Pricey but well worth it. Especially for business travelers as it is adjacent to the Hyatt. Great location and ideal outside seating overlooking the popular Main Street. Especially on Thursday or Friday evenings in the summer when there is live music in the square.

Thank you for this positive review! It is great to hear that you had a nice experience at Roost and had the chance to enjoy our beautiful patio that sits right on Main St. There is no better place to be on a Thursday or Friday night when the music is going on right at our doorstep. Thank you again for taking the time to provide us with this review and we hope to see you again soon!
