Started with the oysters rockefeller and she crab soup. The oysters were luke warm and so was the soup. The soup is unlike any I've ever had. Didnt taste sherry - but a... More

All I heard about was how great this place was. Had a group of 10 called ahead and they said they couldn't seat us but could sit at the bar. We saw vacant tables and thought that was odd. We ate at the bar - crab nachos we're pretty good. Then the she crab soup ... oh my. Was a... More

I love the steak with chimichirra. The shrimp and grits are amazing as well. Very nice atmosphere and conveniently located around the corner from the parking garage. This is a must-try at least once.

Soooo good ole Greenville. Or how many of us like to call it...Gvegas. Because literally being in this town is like hitting gold. Its got great views, great adventures and great food.

Visiting from the UK. Exquisite presentation of dishes and great flavour combinations. Interior decor is inviting and intimate. Service was faultless. Pricing is very reasonable for the quality of dishes. One of the best restaurants I've been to in SC. Highly recommended.

It was a first visit for me and my hubby. We ordered the blue crab nachos based on reviews read on TripAdvisor. They did not look like much when Andy (our superb waiter) brought them to the table. However they were quite delicious. My husband had the fried chicken and it was so much better than he expected. I chose... More

This place is a great place for dinner! We had the Blue Crab and Pepper Jack Fondue Nachos as an appetizer. I had the Beef Tips En Croute, it was simply amazing. Our waiter was fabulous too!

The menu is awesome and creative. The service is fantastic. It is not loud. I love this place and I eat downtown all the time. Rick Erwin and Halls are pretentious and so loud. Service at Halls and Nantucket is lousy. The wait is long at Tupelo. Sassafras is Greenville dining at its best. Every time I have been there... More
