A word from Bacon Bros Public House
Bacon Bros. Public House is an innovative gastropub where farm fresh products from Coal Fired Farms serve as the focal point. The seasonally driven menu of the new East Greenville restaurant offers a delicious selection of small plates and entrees, with most items priced under $15. The decor is warm and rustic with a dining room that features reused wooden pallets, an element that compliments Chef Gray’s passion for sustainability. Diners can catch a glimpse of the curing chamber, where menu items like the Bastardo Salami, Coppa Ham and Bresola are seasoned and aged to perfection. Simply put, Bacon Bros. is a great place for a relaxed dining experience with friends and family, or to meet for small bites and a craft beer or glass of wine after work.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/21/2014
    I ate here with a friend of mine around 9 pm on a Friday. The place was fairly crowded so I suggest you get a reservation if you intend to eat there at night time on a weekend. Our waiter was very attentive and did a great job of explaining the menu to us. Everything looked amazing there. They have a great selection of cured meats. That much was very cool for me as I don't see many restaurants do that, I will come back to try more of the meats. I got a thanksgiving leftover sandwich, and it came with no sides. I ate 3 deviled eggs as an appetizer before hand and let me tell you I barely finished that sandwich. The sandwiches they serve are amazing but most of them have some sort of special thing about them that sets them apart from being just a regular sandwich. I had some of their bacon as well and it is awesome, lots of smoky wood tastes in all of the meats I ate. These guys definitely know what they are doing. I feel there are things to eat here for people who are not foodies and not too adventurous. But this place is a really great place to eat. Especially for people who liked smoked meat.

    3 of 4 entrees (2 ribs and one catfish) were very, very good - the meats and sides perfect!! The 4th entree, brisket, -food was luke warm at best and the brisket was dry. The sides, brussel sprouts and sweet potato country potatoes were fantastic, great flavor! Our server, Anna, was one of the best servers we have had in a restaurant, anywhere!!

    Quality food and service. Chef's selection of charcuterie was very good. Don't be afraid of the head cheese and liverwurst, they are both amazing. Entree special was a grilled pork belly with kimchi and brussel sprouts, all with Asian spices and sauce. The pork belly was grilled to perfection - slight smoky char on the outside and incredibly moist and flavorful on the inside. Great feature is how the food and cocktail menus do change subtlety from season to season, showing the emphasis on fresh and local items. Cocktail list currently showcasing fall flavors, so enjoy.

    Bacon Brothers has become one of our favorite restaurants since moving to Greenville last year. The atmosphere is hip but comfortable for everyone from old folks like us to families with kids. Service is friendly and attentive, and most of all, these folks really do their food right. They've created a sweet niche for themselves with a great beer list and sublime smokey meats. Our only wish is that they were closer to downtown, but that's okay because you never have to work at finding parking... which gives you more time to indulge in the pleasures they dish out!

    A Greenville friend clued us into this fantastic spot while we were visiting. The place was packed for a good reason. Every section of the menu was well thought out and spot on (cocktail line up, craft beers, appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, kids, etc.). The place has a great vibe and the food was killer. Will definitely be back!

    This was my first dining experience at BBPH. I took the whole family and we celebrated my oldest sons birthday. I used the online reservations system which worked better than most. We arrived a little more than 5 minutes prior to our reservation time and were seated almost immediately. We are smoked meat snobs because I can spin up some pretty good smoked meat myself. BBPH has got it down! The jalapeno corn bread was outstanding.

    My group was extremely disappointed in our meals. The apple brined pork was dry and half of the serving was pure fat. Another person in the group ordered the brisket. Again, about half of the serving was fat. Who eats pure fat?! Service was equally poor. We won't be back, and I'll certainly inform friends not to waste their money.

    We have been to Bacon. Bros many times for birthdays celebrations, and just nights out with friends. The food is always to die for, the service is friendly, professional, and timely, and the drink menu is well rounded to supply a great selection whether you are looking for beer, wine, or cocktails. We recommend this place to everyone, and will be back soon!

    We dined fairly late (thanks, United) on a Friday evening, so I can't judge what it might have been like during the evening rush. That said, we had scrutinized the menu in advance and quickly ordered bacon-caramel popcorn, fried pickles and great beers. I ordered the pulled pork shoulder with sorghum sauce, mac n' cheese and jalapeno cornbread. It was all very good and way more than I could eat. Service was excellent and parking was easy (suburban shopping center). I would very much recommend Bacon Brothers to anyone who enjoys good barbeque from time to time.

Had to b returned then side was cold. They gave a free beer but that did not.make up for ignoring me as a single diner. Reuben was still fabulous

    Arrived 10 minutes before our reservations and we were told pur table wasn't ready buy we could sit at the bar and order an appetizer. Hood draft beer selection. After the second round (30 minutes) we went back to check with the host and he told us the table had been ready but the couldn't find us...because we were standing right where he told us to stand. Waitress was quirky but charming. Bar service was quick all night. I ordered the BME and the wife got the an appy as her entree. Food was served very quickly and our orders were correct. Waitress was on top of drink refills even after we stopped ordering alcohol. We will go back. Host was the only aspect that could have been better.

    We've eaten here 3 times and had great service the 1st 2 times. But last week we had to ask our waiter 3 times to refill our drinks before he did. By the time he came ONE time to refill, we were literally finished with dinner. He knew I was frustrated because I actually said " My Daddy had to fill his tea glass with my mom's water"...and just poured tea into the water! I understand he was busy, but he could have at apologized. I couldn't help but feel we were " overlooked" because we were a group of 6 and he was getting his 20% tip no matter what kind of service he gave us. Not to mention it was very hot in the restaurant that evening...overall, not the best experience :-(

    We take clients/vendors here quite a bit and the service and food is always great. All the meats are wonderful and cured and smoked in house. Deviled eggs are the best ever, pimento cheese jar rocks, shrimp and grits, and my favorite is the pulled pork grilled cheese. Always rave reviews from the crowd when we go.

For dinner I had the chicken, my husband the beef brisket, friends the shrimp and grits and all were very pleased with the meals and sides. Don't remember our servers name, ( sorry ) but he was wonderful. Attentive without being too much! Great place and I will be back!

    Our server was exceptional and really knew the products and wine list; love this restaurant. The meats are all cured and smoked on site...come hungry. One suggestion: develop a smaller BBQ sampler plate. We really wanted to try a little of everything, but the serving size was too big. We ordered the brisket and the pulled pork...very nice, no grissle and no fat. I would also add some cheeses to your Meat Board. The tater tot appetizer was delicious! We'll be back.

    If you like meat - specifically smoked, BBQ, deliciousness - then you have got to get some Bacon Bros! Everything is outstanding. Everyone in our party of four had something different. For an appetizer, we shared wings. If you like a little heat, they are undoubtedly the best wings on the planet. We also had Devil Dusted Eggs - again, a little heat makes these amazing. The Meat Board had an incredible selection of 5 delicious varieties; the Pork Chop was the biggest, most succulent I have EVER seen; the Pulled Pork was melt-in-you-mouth delicious; and the 1/2 Chicken will make you slap your grandmother! As for the sides, again - everything was outstanding (the asparagus with lemon was huge hit). Go there. Now. :-)

Flavor of the ribs were okay. My wife got the vegetables and they were pretty standard. We had high expectations just didn't measure up especially given the cost!

    Bacon Brothers is about 40 minutes from my home, but I heard about it from some friends. Since I have dinned there five times, tried something different each time, and have yet to be disappointed! The menu is great, service is always stellar, and to my knowledge a somewhat unique dinning experience for Greenville.
