Always our must go to restaurant when visiting Greenville. Food is always prepared perfectly and delicious. Menu is moderately priced. A bit on the high side but worth it. Nice menu with many options to choose from plus some nice specials. Service is always courteous and helpful. Very friendly.
We were most impressed with the service. All of the staff was attentive, not just our waitperson. Very impressive in the current post-COVID shutdown era!
Great atmosphere, service & food
The fried green tomato appetizer is outstanding as was the pecan encrusted trout special. Our waiter, Mike, was attentive but not intrusive. A very nice first visit!
Incredible food. Personal visit from the manager. Exceptional service.
Downtown Greenville SC is beautiful and the Sassafras restaurant is a wonderful restaurant.
If I had one comment to make it would be that they gave me too much food! Lol

Great food but a little pricey, service was really great as well as was the wine list.
