Not having reservations, we were offered seats at the bar, which we took. It turned out to be a great option. Service for drinks and food was fast, and the meals did not disappoint. We had the fried goat cheese (highly recommend), lamb lollipops, pork...More

Service was fast...very helpful and professional. Setting was beautiful. Food was so-so. No draft beer. Paella is great, but we also had 5 apps and none were very good.

This is a favorite restaurant of friends I was visiting in Greenville, and it would be mine, too, if I lived there. The sleek, sophisticated atmosphere of the main floor carries through to the lower level, where we were seated. Large windows overlook the Reedy...More

The Lazy Goat is a Mediterranean-themed restaurant with a menu featuring global influences from Spain, Morocco, Italy, France, Greece, Africa and the Middle East and a relaxed atmosphere where taking the time to "linger and share" is encouraged. The diverse menu was created to accommodate a variety of diner preferences with meat & cheese plates, small plates to “graze and nibble,” and main dishes. Guests are invited to take their time while "trying a little bit of that and a little bit of that" or a "whole lot of whatever they like".
