About the restaurant
Just a few steps from Falls Park, Pomegranate on Main serves authentic Persian cuisine with exceptionally flavorful beef, chicken, lamb, shrimp, salmon and veggie kabobs and basmati rice entrees, stews and starters. The entrees are gluten-free and naturally healthy. Owner and entrepreneur Ali Saifi learned Southern hospitality in his native Iran long before settling in Greenville, S.C., and opened the restaurant as a gift to the community that celebrates the Upstate’s melting pot of cultures. Enjoy a bistro-style atmosphere in our main dining room or open-air patio with water wall.

Good food but in a noisy atmosphere with service more focused on fast turn around than professional standards.

About the restaurant
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 in 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 this and a little bit of that" or a "whole lot of whatever they like."

We had a terrific meal, shared salads & a pizza for appetizers and then all had different pastas as main courses. Everyone enjoyed their choices. Service was perfect, very attentive but not hovering. I highly recommend Indaco & will return on our next visit to Greenville.
