Visiting Greenville, SC for Thanksgiving Week.

I am interested to hear from some of the local hounds in regards to any new restaurants to try or existing ones that should not be missed. I am willing to travel if need be. Thank you all.

  1. What kind of food are you looking for? Best bets are Devereaux's and High Cotton. Grill Marks has also turned into a good place. Steller on Main Str just got a new Chef. The LAzy Goat is also very good. Stay away from Red Fin.

      Thank you for the response JB. I have been to Devereaux's and High Cotton. Enjoyed Both. I am not looking for any type of food in particular. Just good stuff.

        Then the Goat should be on the list. Stella in Simpsonville is certainly worth the drive.

        I forgot about the #1 Restaraunt on Trip Advisor THE OWL at 726 Wade Hampton Blvd. There are on this board.

    2. The only thing I can recommend is The Augusta Grill on Augusta Rd. I've recently moved here from Charleston and have been EXTREMELY disappointed with the restaurant scene here. I had high hopes for the Lazy Goat and it turned out to be a huge let down. The seafood was tough and the paella was bland and gluey. I've eaten and High Cotton in Charleston and it was O.K. I had Eggs Benedict and it was almost as good as what I'd make for myself so I never went back. I thought it was over-rated. A "good" restaurant in Greenville is like a mediocre one (or worse) in Charleston. The bar is set a lot lower here (unfortunately for those of us who are accustomed to more sophisticated tastes). The Augusta Grill though I would put on a par with a good Charleston restaurant.
