Breakwater Restaurant & Bar - Greenville
Great food and serviceWe went early as we were seeing a show at the peace center. Had a fantastic server that had excellent recommendations and was perfect for the job. Attentive, but could tell we were enjoying an evening as husband and wife, and chatted but not overly.
Food was fantastic. We went the tapas route and everything was cooked to perfection.
Keep up the good work and thank you for an enjoyable evening out!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dinner on our firstExcellent dinner on our first visit.

We both enjoyed sampling the menu. Scallops are Most Excellent.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first visit to BreakwaterMy first visit to Breakwater and what I liked was the option of Tapas and full portions. I ordered seasonal vegetables on the side which cosisted of grilled fresh asparagus, kale and whole baby carrots. I couldn't resist the Lamb Sliders with homemade fries. Great menu choices. My husband ordered the soup of the day - Lobster bisque and then the tapas portion of the shrimp & grits. My only complaint was noise level of the music...Jazz...which made it difficult to talk over some of the songs.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server Cameron was outstandingOur server Cameron was outstanding and very attentive4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBreakwater never disappointsWe've been to Breakwater Restaurant many times & have enjoyed it each time. We took neighbors that had never been & they were very pleased. They would definitely go again. We can't wait to go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe server was excellent,The server was excellent, taking good care of us from beginning to end and sharing his opinions on the menu (all of which turned out to be true). We had six people order six different meals, appetizers, and desserts. No one was disappointed with any dish. Great place!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful date nightWe had a wonderful date night at Breakwater and greatly enjoyed our server William (awesome mustache by the way). He explained the menu well and was obviously a great server as the restaurant was busy and he never allowed himself to "get in the weeds." We really enjoyed our meal, but the fried green tomatoes and lobster bisque definitely stood out as favorites. Our favorite thing about this place is that we can get a bunch of different things and share them. We are definitely the type of people that like to try several things from the menu and the way their menu is set up, really allows us to be able to do that.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBreakwater is one of our favoriteBreakwater is one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville. Each time we have dined there, our food has been incredible and our server has been really friendly and helpful (ask for Drew, he's great!). The scallops are my favorite, and I have a hard time picking anything else over them. Every dish my boyfriend has chosen has really been enjoyable (most recently, the lamb meatloaf and the filet). He also really likes calamari, and we've ordered it all over town. Breakwater has the best! There's a great cocktail/beer/wine menu, too!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing! WeThe food was amazing! We started out with Caesar with shaved country ham salad and beet & goat cheese salad. Then had tapas - tuna tartare, southern fried shrimp basket, cornmeal dusted diver scallops, and grilled lamb rack. Ended with creme brulee. The food and service were awesome!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI've dined here three times.I've dined here three times. The food and service were excellent. I recommend ordering several different dishes and sharing around the table. No reason to limit yourself to appetizer, entree and dessert when the food is this good! But be warned, the restaurant is very noisy, almost unpleasantly so, setup is open and there is little to no privacy, also bring your sweater, because it's cold in there.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tuna tartare - excellent!The tuna tartare - excellent! Cornmeal dusted scallops - even better! Great service -- there when you needed him, but not pushy/hovering. Great experience!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat appetizers, diver scallopsGreat appetizers, diver scallops are some of the best I have had.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the lamb which wasWe had the lamb which was delicious the last time we were there however, found it disappointing this time. Also, entirely too much dressing on the salad . The mussels were wonderful! Thinking this was just an off night we will go back. Our waiter Drew was spot on!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious. IThe food was delicious. I want to stress upon that because I enjoyed my meal immensely. I had the NY strip and my husband and three appetizers as his entree. There was not one thing that we disliked and the presentation was beautiful as well. He enjoyed the Calamari with Buffalo sauce and the Southern sampler platter. He loved the oysters and said the duck was to die for. It was kind of slow since we went on a Monday night, but we would love to go here again.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEat the SteakWe had a Saturday evening dinner for a family gathering of six people. The meal was fresh and the service was very attentive. The portions for the appetizer were not large but they were unique and very good.The meals were superb. Three of us had the strip steak and all said it was the best we had had in a long time. Highly recommend.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Birthday DinnerThe experience was wonderful. Our server (I think John) couldn't have been any better. He was fantastic and personable. Our table of eight thought the food was out of sight. The sea bass and ribs were quite delicious. We're defiantly going again. Will recommend to everyone.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for special occasionNeat atmosphere. This might be a regular dining spot for some people, but at this price point, it is a special occasion type place for me and my husband. Food was delicious, though...both apps and main dish. Would definitely recommend.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding andThe food was outstanding and the service was great!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's a Winner!Well appointed restaurant with a gracious staff. The menu provided a variety of options and the portion sizes were nice. I wasn't sure what to think of a butterbean hummus, but it was really good. The staff was friendly and seemed eager to make our experience enjoyable. Considering the location, downtown Greenville, finding a parking space was not difficult.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of Greenville'sThis is one of Greenville's best restaurant-hands down. Food was incredible with lots of variety to choose from. Two of us in our party had the special on this Saturday evening and could not have been more pleased. This is not "your father's restaurant" but a vibrant gastronomic delight.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellent.The service was excellent. Professional yet not personable. The food was great.
