About the restaurant
Where old-world hospitality meets familiar European views, the cuisine reveals an elevated twist on classic Italian and Mediterranean favorites. Chef Haydn Shaak marries classical training with his dedication to local farms and ingredients to craft a truly unique menu inspired by the seasonality of the Upstate.

We love having such close access to Restaurant 17. The food is outstanding. We are so fortunate to have Sam as our bartender and wait person. He is so helpful and remembers our likes and dislikes. We had another wonderful experience on June 6, as we were celebrating my husband's birthday.

Had dinner here before a show at the Peace Center. Very busy restaurant, but that’s a good thing! The food was delicious and most of the menu is small plates, which is right up my alley. My only complaint is that the service was a bit slow. My friend arrived before me and had ordered a drink, but it was quite a while before the server came back to take my order. Food came out promptly, though, and we made our show on time. I’ll definitely go back.

About the restaurant
You won't find a neighborhood restaurant anywhere close to Greenville doing what chef Shawn Kelly set out to do: provide both neighbors and visitors alike the Upstate's freshest and most plentiful meats, produce, and products, both as a dine-in and carryout option.

This concept supports the idea that farmers and chefs can make a living supplying a community with its daily necessities, while also encouraging enjoyment of a simple meal of a sandwich or steak, chop, or bake.

Just imagine: Wednesdays become your favorite lunch day of fresh and locally-sourced soups and salads with a friend. Then you get a favorite bottle of wine to bring home, coupled with carefully chosen side dishes and the best burgers and fresh Carolina seafood in Greenville to throw on the grill. Or maybe you even have a long-standing Sunday brunch date!

From the moment we walked through the door until the moment we left it was perfect! People were genuinely friendly and gave great service. The food was perfect. We were there for date night and it was so great to sit and actually be able to talk to each other. We will definitely be back again and again.

About the restaurant
The Farehouse is located in the heart of the historic Taylors Mill’s Dock No. 3. The mill began its life as the Southern Bleachery and Piedmont Print Works during the height of the Greenville area’s reign as the Textile Capital of the World. Closing as a mill in 1965, the building found a variety of partial uses until revitalization efforts began in the mid 2000s. While many mill revitalization projects have converted mills into condos and other residential projects, the Taylors Mill is proud to be the largest grassroots project of its kind in the upstate of South Carolina. Today the Taylors Mill seeks to facilitate craft and commerce for a new generation in the heart of Taylors, SC. The Taylors Mill is reclaiming creative community.

Our menu focuses on New York style pizza, pub-style appetizers, deli sandwiches, and dinner specials using fresh, locally-sourced meat and produce.

Excellent pizza and wings. Gluten free options. Drinks are great, but a little pricy.
