A word from The Lazy Goat
The Lazy Goat is a Mediterranean-themed restaurant with a menu featuring global influences from Spain, Morocco, Italy, France, Greece, Africa and the Middle East and a relaxed atmosphere where taking the time to "linger and share" is encouraged.

The diverse menu was created to accommodate a variety of diner preferences with meat & cheese plates, small plates to “graze and nibble,” and main dishes.

Guests are invited to take their time while "trying a little bit of that and a little bit of that" or a "whole lot of whatever they like".

Diner Reviews
  • "This is one of our favorite places to eat and we go there often. My only suggestion would be to know what you order and amount that will come as the pricing seem to be inconsistent with other dishes. A great place to relax take in the sights and have a slow mediterranean style meal."

  • "This is my favorite restaurant in Greenville! They have a great atmosphere, and the food is to die for. The dining area inside can get a little loud, so if you have a group that can't hear well I would recommend sitting on the patio."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Lazy Goat has been my fiancé and I's favorite restaurant in Greenville ever since we first started dating nearly 3 years ago. We love the menu and it's unique flair. We love ordering a plate of fine cheeses, meats and breads as an appetizer and to enjoy with our wine. The staff is always very helpful and informative. And best of all, the food is always amazing!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Our waitress was perfect for our group that night. We were on a short leash--timewise--and she got us out on time without making us feel rushed. Her suggestions were spot on. The food, as always, was superb!"

  • "My husband and I had a lovely lunch at Lazy Goat. On a gloomy day, we got to sit at a window table and watch the river churn by. The menu offered many interesting options, all reasonably priced. He chose the Cuban sandwich, and pronounced it tasty. I had the soup of the day, which was a delicious chicken with lentils, and the lazy greek salad, an interesting combination that could have been called an olive salad with orzo and blackeye peas. The salad had no greens in it, which was a surprise, but it was quite flavorful. Service was a little uneven, but very friendly. I had to ask for salt and pepper twice; my husband had to ask for an iced tea refill twice too. We'll go back to The Lazy Goat when we're in Greenville."

  • "Overall it was a very acceptable dinner. Not in line with other dinners we have had at this restaurant ."

  • "Love the food and the tapas philosophy. Service was great. Only complaint is they took "papa's bravas" off the menu!"

  • "This is one of our favorite Greenville restaurants. The food is always well prepared and well presented. The chef here is very creative in the way she uses quality ingredients - in combinations that enhance flavors and textures. We have brought out of town (and out of country) guests here on numerous occasions, so confident are we in the quality. The only ongoing complaint we have is the sometimes overwhelming noise level - especially at times when there are several large tables of diners competing for each other's attention."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "It was great. The noise level probably depends on where you sit. Stuck to the graze menu and it was all great. Our waiter was very knowledgeable didn't rush us, order things like 2 at a time and they keep the pace well."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The Lazy Goat is located along the Reedy river in Greenville, with the dining room having glass exterior walls overlooking the river making for breathtaking views of downtown. This restaurant is part of Table 301, similar to Soby's, The Nose Dive, etc. The food is fantastic, with a slight trend towards Mediterranean. I'd strongly recommend this restaurant as a great spot for a nice lunch or dinner."

  • "Appetizer was hummus and veggies; the hummus was really good. For our entrees, my husband got the duck pizza, which he said wasn't that great, and I got the brik chicken. I enjoyed it, but it was a little oily. Dessert could have been much better; we got the hazelnut chocolate dessert, and it was quite dry. I think this restaurant is beautiful, but the noise level is so loud. We were with another couple and we felt like we had to shout at each other to hear. Service was pretty good, but could have been better, more attentive, etc. If we had not have had coupons for this, I would be upset. But with the coupons, the price was right. Probably won't go and eat downstairs again, but maybe for a drink/meal on the patio once it warms up."

  • "Came to the Lazy Goat for my friends 40th birthday. The food was excellent and staff were very gracious to her for her birthday. Only thing I would change is that they should offer something for birthday celebrations."

  • "As always, we had an amazing night with friends (six in our party total - two of which had never visited The Lazy Goat) enjoying great food, good wine and service that simply can't be beat. Our Server was on top of everything with knowledge of food served, wine available and an attitude that spoke volumes of what true hospitality is in accommodating guest. We enjoyed our dinner, laughed, joked and then enjoyed dessert with coffee and at no time did any our party feel rushed to move on! Mediterranean style dining complete with a European style for enjoying dinner as an event!"

  • "Crispy Brussels Sprouts are only on the dinner menu, but our server was able to get them for us - for lunch. This made the luncheon an absolute success! Thank You"

  • "We made a reservation through the Open Table site, showed up on time but had to wait almost 30 minutes. This was unacceptable to me to see people walking in and getting seated while we waited. The excuse was that downtown was busy that night, but that is what we in Greenville want for a Saturday night in February."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We booked Lazy Goat based on recommendations and it did not disappoint. Delicious food, very close to Peace Center, and nice view of the river. A place we'll return when we have tickets to the Peace Center."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Perfect restaurant to bring a girl to, it's laid back and relaxing, but still maintains a quality that is hard to beat and delicious food as well. Outstanding job"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Just a few notes... 1) The location and view of the river is outstanding. Outside dining will be incredible in warmer months. 2) The food (Moroccan Lamb and Even Lazier Paella) was incredible. The menu encourages sharing and a group of good friends will make this a "go to" location for sure. 3) The wait staff was very helpful with suggestions for first time diners. Worth every penny of their tip."

  • "We've been to the Lazy Goat many times before. Every time has been great until this one. We made reservations for 7:15 and arrived at 7:15. When we talked to the hostess she told us that they had to get our table set up and it would be about 5 min. 25 min later we were sat. I can understand 5-10 min, but when you make a reservation you expect to get to the place and sit. It seemed that there weren't open tables when we got there which is something that should be planned for. After that opening experience, everything else was fantastic and everything we knew the Lazy Goat was about. I simply write this review so that the restaurant can adjust it's planning."

  • "This was my first time dining at The Lazy Goat and I lived it so much. I was there for Valentines day. I really loved and appreciated the rose we got when sitting down. Everyone was very cordial and the waiter knew a lot about the menu and restaurant. I lived the selection of food and how it was presented. Everything was super delicious and a neat experience. I will absolutely be back!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great location, beautiful view, service was great the food was sadly flavorless. We had the Moroccan Lamb and Lazy paella."

  • "We had reservations at 8:30 but were not seated until almost 9:00 - this is unacceptable to me when you have a reservation."

  • "Food, service and atmosphere were all perfect. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food and service were amazing. However, the rose my wife was given upon arrival (Valentine's Day) crumbled by the time we walked to the table. One problem we always have with this restaurant is the noise level. The layout is very open and there is nothing to absorb the sound; we would suggest that the owners do something about the acoustics to provide a better dining experience for customers. Overall, we are very satisfied at the meal we had at The Lazy Goat. The menu, wine list, and service are top-notch!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I went with a group of four friends for dinner on my birthday and had an amazing time. The food tasted great and was beautifully presented. We spend nearly two and a half hours there without realizing it! Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We're regulars for special events. The last two times there, we've been disappointed. Menu hasn't changed, but recipes have-not for the better. Our favorite server is gone. If you have bell pepper allergy, know many of the "Graze & Nibble" dishes are covered with them now. Had the place almost to ourselves due to bad weather, but our server was too busy talking to the other servers to notice us. The hostess seating other guests had to get his attention for us to simply ask for salt...which we then had to ask for twice. Appetizer cold. As we were finishing dinner, I got an email from the Lazy Goat saying that our Open Table had been cancelled! We were seated as "walk-ins" rather than with reservations. It will be a while before we go back."

  • "We were visiting Greenville for the weekend; mainly to go to the theater. Found The Lazy Goat because it appeared to be convenient for Peace Center. Finding a parking place was a bit of a challenge for this place, though. Staff proved to be helpful to us with this. The food was good - less than special or magnificent but (almost) as described on their menu. Surprised the restaurant was very COLD. Granted the temperature outside was about ten degrees but all the more reason to want some WARM air inside. Service was adequate. Again, we were accommodated but not wowed. This OK review gives The Lazy Goat a C+ or B- overall (using traditional scale). Rating with some four stars - at best. In all fairness, we were totally unfamiliar with an area."

  • "My recent visit was to celebrate my birthday and LG did their part in making it a memorable evening for me! Our server was friendly but didn't intrude or interrupt, the food came out lightening fast and hot, and paying did not take forever. It may be slightly overpriced menu wise, but I think portion sizes were perfect."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We enjoyed the evening celebrating a family birthday. Edgar was very helpful in explaining the menu and wine choices. Service was prompt for food delivery. We'll definitely return for the view of the river at night!"
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "I have been dining at the Lazy Goat over the past 2 1/2 years and one of my favorite dishes on the menu was the Moussaka which to my surprise was taken off the menu. This was an excellent dish to order. I have always enjoyed the pork belly but on this occassion it was tough to chew. The lamb is also a favorite but could have come out of the kitchen hotter than it did. The overall dining experrience was as expected and I will continue to dine when in the area."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "My friends and I went for appetizers and wine. The prices are great for the quality of food. The pimento cheese is the best I've ever had. The only complaint was that we had reservations but we still waited in the empty restaraunt (it was early) to be seated."
