    Wow! Incredible food and impeccable service. I've been in this industry for a long time, and let me tell you, this restaurant puts a lot of love into their operation. Goat cheese balls, Brussels sprouts, pork tenderloin all SO SO SO DELICIOUS! They gave us a table with a beautiful view of the river and Henry, our server, was so great! They made my birthday really special. I will definitely be back. Oh, And they have separate gluten free menu.

    Wonderful experience. They have the best fried goat cheese! Enjoyed the meal and our time. The cost matches the quality, quantity, and the service as well. I didn’t take as many pictures this visit, but everyone was happy with their orders. We shared the goat cheese & fries and ordered a half charcuterie, apple & fennel salad, & a duck, duck, goat flatbread - all good. Then for dessert one friend raved about the sweet potato pie. I had the layered marquis cake and it is chocolate perfection! Perfectly balanced.

    We were there for a birthday celebration meal and everyone made us feel very special, with a card on the table and a yummy complimentary dessert. We were granted our request to have a table by the window. Also our paella was a bit delayed as it was a busy night, so we were brought a complimentary small plate to enjoy while we waited. The food was delicious as usual. Lazy Goat is our favorite place to when dining out, but this time was extra special and memorable. Thank you.

    Always an enjoyable dinner! In Greenville’s vibrant river district, this restaurant’s menu is full of delish Mediterranean styled plates! Our fav is the pitcher of sangria…done nicely! Missed the fresh fruit this time, but we will forgive them…this time. Their fried goat cheese balls are amazing! Paella is highly flavored and also yummy. For those a little less adventurous, they have wood fired flatbread pizzas! Great for a gluten free eater as well as my dining partner is just that! Tried not to enjoy the goat cheese balls too much in front of him…sadly, they are not gf.
