This Saturday, I'm meeting up with a few friends in downtown Greenville. Can someone please suggest a good, non-chain lunch spot downtown? I visited tripadvisor.com and am now just confused. Lazy Goat looked promising until I read that the tables are communal. We want a casual but sit down place where we can talk. I had a fantastic dinner at an Italian place across from the Westin a few years ago but can't recall the name (plus I think it was only open for dinner). I've also had a good dinner at High Cotton but that's a little fancy for this lunch. Please send ideas, thanks!

    Northhampton Wine Cafe has lunch on Saturday, and they have a nice outdoor patio. It's just a few blocks down Broad street from Main Street. As for Lazy Goat, although I'm not a fan, unless they have changed things, not all the tables are communal. I've eaten there twice outside on their patio, normal tables.

      Haven't been to The Lazy Goat since last fall but we've eaten lunch there on a number of occasions and never saw communal tables inside the restaurant. Why not call them and ask?

      I've looked at the High Cotton lunch menu online and am hoping to try that next time we're in Greenville for lunch.

      If I were there on Saturday I would follow danna's suggestion and try a meal at Northhampton Wine Cafe as their menu always looked very attractive when I've been there shopping for wine.

        Thanks for the suggestions. We ended up going to the Lazy Goat and eating on the patio. Tables were not communal. We had great hummus with veggies and pita, the chicken salad wrap, the Cuban, and a veggie pita. It was a great time. The patio was shaded at lunch and had a great view of the river. The restaurant is a little hard to find--tripadvisor said it was "across from the Hampton Inn on the river" but it's really connected to the hotel.
