    My wife and her friends dined here for the Mother’s Day brunch at a 6pm dinner. They loved being able to try multiple types of food at once! It was a great introduction to The Lazy Goat!

    Went for Mother’s Day and the atmosphere and service were great. The food was very good, but a couple of things came out at room temperature instead of hot/warm. But with that being said, I would definitely go back, great spot for downtown dining.

    Terrific Mother's Day brunch, on the patio, overlooking the Reedy River and Peace Center. The Lazy Goat is one of our favorites, as we enjoy Date Night every Saturday or Special Occasions. Keith Green, the GM, and his team are outstanding.

    Everything was perfect! There was very little noise (not sure if I rated that correctly). The food was phenomenal. Service was above the bar. We went to celebrate Mother’s Day early due to our work schedules, and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. My steak was perfect (and I do not order steak out often because people over cook it). All our dishes were beautiful. This is an upscale restaurant but a great deal for the money considering the quality of the experience.

    This was a great place to relax and enjoy a meal. We ate on the outdoor patio, which was cozy and fairly quiet. All of our food was great, but we especially enjoyed the duck confit, house made pastas, whipped feta dip and brussel sprouts. The service we received from Matthew was beyond excellent! He was knowledgeable and friendly. He made our experience even better!

    A friend recommended The Lazy Goat and we are very happy he did. We ate outside and the location overlooking the Reedy River near the Falls was very pleasant, The food was delicious - well prepared and creative. The falafel and the lamb appetizers were wonderful. The service was excellent. Our server Matthew was very helpful and attentive. When we told him our main course was only warm, he apologized and put in an order for another serving. While we waited the manager came out and apologized. He actually brought out the order when it was ready and waited to make sure we were satisfied. We would definitely go back to The Lazy Goat next time we are in Greenville.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary and we’re delighted with the complimentary Sweet potatoes pie served on a large slate with Happy Anniversary inscribed with syrup. The pie was excellent creamy and delicious. Plus two flutes of champagne were included. A fun surprise. I’m a Capricorn and love the capricious Laughing Goat! Thanks

    We had been to The Lazy Goat on a culinary tasting tour in Greenville and knew we wanted to go back after having their Mezze Plate & Fried Goat Cheese. Our anniversary was the perfect excuse & The Lazy Goat did not disappoint! From the time of check in to our last bite of the complimentary dessert & last sip of the complimentary champagne The Lazy Goat staff ensured our celebration was something to remember. The food was delicious and we luckily came on a Thursday, which is half priced wine bottle night. Excellent value, delicious food and thoughtful staff made for a wonderful celebration dinner and night.

    Everything was great! We sat outside. Our waiter took our drink order and came back promptly with them. The goat cheese appetizers we shared were delicious. I ordered pork tenderloin and my date ordered a salad with grilled chicken. My pork tenderloin was outstanding and my date enjoyed the salad. This was my second visit and I'm sure there will be a third! The service and the food exceeded my expectations. Cheers to the Lazy Goat staff.
