A good ambiance, plenty of food choices, great for a special
We had good food and the restaurant in the Marriott Hotel had only 3 other tables in use when we ate.
Excellent food and service. Pleasantly surprised from a hotel restaurant. This is a sleeper. Will definitely be going back.
The food was excellent! We enjoyed it and would go there again next time we are in Spartanburg.
Good food. Would like to see more healthy choice offerings with hearty and healthy salads.
Beautiful hotel property. Love MESH Lounge!
Look forward to coming again thoughout the year.
Also love the partnership and loyalty between Marriott and Wofford College.
Waiting time with reservation for food more than an hour !!
...but I tend to compare all steak restaurants with the same food ordered, that being a rib eye, mash and mushrooms, limited as it may be. The steak was just average, so it was a little disappointing. However my colleague said his Salmon was the best he ever tasted, I wanted to mention that, so the review doesn't look so average.
Wait staff were amazing and very attentive and a please to talk to. Ambiance was not really intimate, but great for larger groups.
This was our second visit to this restaurant. It's convenient because it's located right in the Marriott, and after a long day of Shrine Bowl football, we didn't feel like driving to dinner. We both ordered filets, one medium rare and one medium. They came out at the right temperature. My husband doesn't like asparagus, and they were willing to substitute broccoli for it. I highly recommend the scalloped potatoes. It's too bad there were so few people in the restaurant. It was this empty the first time we ate here as well. I thought the emptiness was reflective of the quality of the food or service, but that's not been our experience either time. Maybe Saturday nights in December are just slow. We'll come back the next time we're in town.
Completely disagree with the negative reviews here...service was outstanding...recommended wine and salad choice were great and steak was cooked just as I ordered it. It was a tad pricey but it is in a hotel! Overall no reservations at all...great choice for a meal!
Fried green tomatoes, Bibb salad
and salmon , delicious.
