Seated outside at 7:30...
Service was very random and felt as though we were dismissed. Took a very long time to receive entree. We ended up being some of the only customers outdoors and coffee/dessert were not offered. Employees were cleaning the restaurant to close while we were still eating, paying our bill etc.

Eat outside on the patio if it's available. The sounds of the outdoors, and the food, is a magical combination. We will be back!

We loved your Thanksgiving dinner! I actually like the family style more than the buffet because I tried a lot of things that I wouldn’t try normally. Please consider keeping it this way!

Thanksgiving dinner was delicious! Fantastic variety of different food and I loved trying a chef's unique take on classic Thanksgiving foods. Service could have been better for the price.

The downstairs was beautifully done, and the view was beautiful. The service was good and the food was delicious. The dishes were a little small for the price, however. What we noticed the most however, was the noise. It was extremely loud. We were uncertain if it was due to no dividers between any of the tables, or the type of ceiling, or what, but it was difficult to hear the one person sitting across from me.

We have really enjoyed the lazy goat. We have been 3 times in the last 3 months since we have first tried it. Our family really loves the fried goat cheese and charcuterie board as a family appetizer.

Every meal we have tried has been nothing short of delicious! It a calm quiet place, we do bring our kids - but if you have wild child’s I’d refrain from bringing them lol. It’s very chill.

Food was very good. Service was slow with minimal attention given to our table. This can be forgiven given the current COVID environment. Main problem was with the drinks. I ordered a Stone Sour and Mediterranean Mule. Both tasted like they had been topped off with water, with little to no favor. I always thought that The Lazy Goat delivered the a full dining experience but this night they missed the mark.

I was frankly appalled at the service this evening. My steak was brought out without a steak knife, rendering it impossible to eat (a butter knife simply won’t do for a steak). This would not have been a problem, but the server did not check back in for more than half an hour. During that time we asked another passing server for a steak knife, which still was not forthcoming. When finally our server curled back to ask how everything was, I let him know I couldn’t say as I hadn’t had a bite of my meal yet. He looked horrified, and stated he would bring a knife. I let him know that the steak was now cold, and I would not pay for it. He did remove the steak, but no further effort was made to correct the situation (comp an app, comp a drink, have the manager check in, etc).

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about the opportunity. My sincerest apology that we did not resolve the matter before you left. There certainly was an opportunity for the server to have corrected the situation and he should have made me aware of the issue. I will be addressing this with my team. I would cherish the opportunity to speak with you personally, if you are open to it. You may reach me at 864-679-5299. Thank you, Ken Preston

I love the menu is unique and the food is delicious. Our server (Jessica) could not have been sweeter and we felt very comfortable eating inside even with the virus. The friend goat cheese balls are a must! The margherita pizza was also a great way to start our meal. I can't say enough good things.

The restaurant have a nice environment and the staff is very friendly. Based on my experience i think is very expensive in what they gave me, when I arrived back to my house I needed to prepare something else for me and the people I went through, the flavors are fine but the plate was more decoration than food, even the appetizer was something insignificant in a little pot, they could be better
