Girlfriend and I went Valentines Day for dinner at 8:00pm with reservations. Host seemed a little confused about reservation. They had cleaned a table in main dining area for us. But when our menus were laid on table, another host picked up menus and said to follow him. He took us to a bar high table in the bar area. Waitress was immensely friendly and talkative. We ordered drinks, then an appetizer and meals. Took over 30 minutes to get our appetizer of chicken skewers basted in a peanut sauce. Ample size and good taste. Once we finished appetizer, I was approached by waitress and informed that they were out of medium rare prime rib and only had medium left. I agreed to medium. It was then another 30 minutes or so to receive our meal. Although more done than I would have liked to have eaten the prime rib was very good. GF had a ribeye steak with baked potato wedges. Her steak was cooked correctly but wasn't even warm enough to melt the butter that was served on top of it. Potato wedges were good but one was not cooked enough to it. . They obviously were aware of our wait, as we did get a free dessert of a skillet cookie and ice cream. The restaurant did not appear to be at full capacity. It would have been nice to sit in the general dining area as opposed to the bar. Food was good for most part but not up to the standards of the price charged.

Every comment from Valentine's Day is warranted. Our computer system in the back of the house went down that night along with a cook down in the kitchen. Everything ran great until about 6:45pm and that is when we started having printer errors. No excuse, but I wanted to own the problem and let people know that we are sorry for what happened. I hope you can forgive and give another try. The food quality at least was mostly on point. The times were terrible.

The Whistlestop Fried Dream Tomatoes were amazing. My husband got the prime rib - ordered it medium rare but something happened in the kitchen and it came out medium instead. He liked it, but has had better. I got the Berry Blue Filet. The steak was cooked great, but I wasn’t so sure about the blueberry toile. Overall, the food was great, though, and our server was amazing. Enjoyed Valentines Day with my love!!

Waited an hour and a half for our food the other night. They comped our app and dessert because it took so long. Food was okay, but I was definitely expecting more. Seats were repaired with duct tape, and it just needed an overall update. Not impressed, and will not be back.

Food was good, large portions, good value for the money. Four issues: 1. Ordered fried green tomatoes for appetizer for wife and I to share. It came on single plate, no side plates to split it on, so we had to take food from middle of table each and it was not comfortable. If we each had our own small plate to share the dish, it would have been a normal event. 2. When the appetizer was removed, they took our cutlery. When our meals came, we had to ask for more cutlery. 3. Manager came over to see how we were doing and thank us for coming. I showed him my steak that was ordered medium and came well done. His comment was, wow that is well done. Sorry about that. No offer to have it done again correct or no offer to give a break on the bill. He just moved on. 4. Our bill came with a charge for something we did not order. Maybe a simple mistake, but for anyone just handing over a credit card, it would have been an $8.50 over charge. The restaurant staff needs more training and more attention to detail.

Appetizer, Whistlestop Fried Dream Tomatoes (delicately fried, crispy tower layered w/in-house pimento cheese) - Excellent. Entree, Berry Blue Filet - melt-in-your-mouth terrific; comes with an out-of-this-world concoction also offered in Appetizers called Blueberry Hill. The flavors were a surprising, original blend influenced with blue cheese and cream with pecans. "Influenced" because it was not overpowering, which blue cheese can be. A "surprise," because I've never tasted anything like it and I've had the good fortune to eat at some pretty great domestic and international restaurants. There was a blueberry sauce beautifully presented on the plate with the filet, and a cracker made out of blue cheese (what a surprise!). Was given 100% attention from the owner, Adam, who waited on us, because all the wait-staff was attending to a big birthday group (on a Sun.). As a result, we got to ask a lot of questions about the place and food. The chef came out as well - Kevin - who used to be head chef at Stax Peppermill (where we never got a bad meal!). Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We were at Spartanburg location and learned a 2nd location has opened up in downtown Greer. Will definitely go. A++ -Dana

I travel quite a bit through out the year. SELECT was recommended to me by a co-worker, so I thought I would give it a try. The atmosphere was standard but wow the food wasn't. I had the Pearls of Atlantis and the scallops were amazing. These were much better than any I have found on the coast.

The service was amazing. The recommendations for wines were spot on and was told they will be supporting a lot of bourbon selections soon. All in all, this is one of the best restaurants I have eaten in over the past 5 years easy. I wish I lived closer. I would be here 3-4 times a week. I am already missing it and I ate there yesterday.

Planned our visit to have prime rib, which they feature on Friday and Saturday nights. This was absolutely the best I've ever had! Perfectly cooked, tender and full of flavor.
Great drink menu, it was unique and offered a wide variety to compliment an extensive variety of food.
You can tell this place is not your Corp. Cookie cutter restaurant. The staff is very friendly and made sure we had a great experience. A hidden gem very worthy of becoming our favorite spot!
Will be back very soon..... perhaps even to have breakfast tomorrow!

The location in Greer is much better. The wait staff recommended the Prime Rib as it was Saturday night. We ordered the Prime Rib, let's just say it needs some improvement.

Wonderful late lunch early dinner. Great menu selection. The low country burger was awesome topped with a grit cake shrimp and bacon cream sauce. My son had the club sandwich that had fresh roasted meats and very healthy portion. The BLT sandwich was stuffed with bacon, roma tomatoes and arugula, a touch of chipotle ranch really made this sandwich.
To finish our meal we ordered the chocolate chip cookie and chef featured strawberry s'mores. They were amazing both pictured in this review.
All this with great service we will definitely be back very soon! Our new regular go to restaurant.

Thank you for the review. I wanted to personally respond to let you know we are in the middle of planning an entire remodel of the restaurant (not the food or menu) so you will be blown away compared to what you see now. Part of that remodel is brand new seats, booths, tables, etc... I just wanted to let you know that it will be brand new and enjoyable.

Very nice pretty new restaurant! Service was good! Food was just ok, not horrible, but not what we expected! We ordered filet mignon & it was more like a sirloin & not very warm. A friend ordered the scallop plate & it was room temperature when brought out. We didn't complain & realize it is a new restaurant & they are still working out the kinks! Presentation of the food was very nice

Food was OK, but this is one of those restaurants that tries to do everything and does none of it particularly well. Prices were reasonable but atmosphere was borderline creepy. We got there at 12:30 for lunch the staff seemed surprised that anyone showed up at all. There was one table left from their supposed “brunch rush” and other than that it was a ghost town. Decor is very outdated. There are way better places to eat in Spartanburg.

The 5 star system is grading like a 0,, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%. Some people believe it is a 20%,40%, 60%, 80% and a 100%. Either way, a two star is a 25% or 40% which is a failing grade. Did we completely fail or we we closer to a D or C? Were we closer to a 50% (3 star) or closer to a 25%? I ask that you re-evaluate the rating. Im sorry our offering didn't delight. but you haven't tried our new menu. I guarantee that will blow you away. Thank you so much.
