The location and views are terrific. One person in our group is vegetarian and was pleased with the options available. Our favorite app was the fried goat cheese with honey & pistachios. Our server was helpful & friendly but a bit slow to serve and close out our table.

It was an awesome experience . The food was delicious and the service was superb. We didn’t have to wait long for our food. It was just the right amount of time. The drinks were delicious as well. We recommend it and would go again if we visit the area.

Place was busy on Saturday night, but we had an 8 PM Reservation and didn’t complete our meal until 10:30 because of how long it took to get each course. They were “sold out” of several key entree’s so the menu was fairly limited.

Service was terrible.Server took our order and we did not have any contact with him again until I stood to seek the check. Our water glasses needed refills 25 minutes beforehand but there was no server to assist us. It was a bizarre experience. Food was good but the goat cheese had a different taste....more tangy....and the Moroccan lamb did not have the usual rich flavor. Other food was very good.

Consistently excellent food. I had a Spanish Shrimp dish with carrots and beans that was amazing. My husband had a pork dish and ate every bite. We find the Lazy Goat to continue to be one of the best restaurants in Greenville.

We recently dined at the Lazy Goat on a Thursday evening. I liked that the restaurant was not packed as it usually is on weekends. Our server was very nice and personable in the beginning, but lacked that same niceness at the end. And I have no idea why, other than we declined dessert?? She took our credit card, returned with it, and abruptly put it on the table with I think a whispered thank you. I'm so glad the food made up for her lack of personality. I had the
Mediterranean Chicken. It was one of the best meals I've had at this restaurant. So delicious!! I can't wait to return and order it again. I hope this dish permanently remains on the menu.

Had ravioli with butternut squash. Wow was it salty. When u could taste the ravioli it was good. Way way to much salt in the sauce

Brussels sprouts were excellent As was hummus

Won’t rush back but will go and try something different.

Service was okay but not exceptional, cheese portions sliced so thinly that daylight could shine through, wine selection good, food was fresh but Paella dish lacked spice and flavor almost bland. Overall a nice place for drinks & appetizers - pass on the entrées.

Dined here as a date with my girlfriend. Went as a suggestion from friends. Their drinks were so good (Texas Mule and Lazy Margarita). Brussel Sprouts were amazing (I’m still thinking about them) as was the Duck, Duck, Goat pizza.
Ambience was really romantic and perfect for a dinner in Greenville.

Service was pretty good. They were quite busy so our server was trying to keep his head above water. He wasn’t unkind he just wasn’t personable. All in all though, I’d eat there again.

What a great experience. The view was amazing. The service exceptional and the meal was very unique. At the end of our weekend trip my wife made the comment that her favorite experience over the 3 days was the goat cheese balls and Sangria at the Lazy Goat. This is big because we visited many different restaurants over the weekend.

Lazy Goat is one of our favorite casual dining experiences. The fried goat cheese balls are second to none! Can’t recommend them more. Can’t decide what to eat? Just pick something randomly because you can’t go wrong with anything.

We really wanted to like the Lazy Goat and chose it based in other reviews. We ordered several items from the menu not knowing that each item would be progressively worse. The charcuterie was warm, warmer than the ambient temperature. The meats and cheeses we had initially chosen were not available. We then ordered the duck pizza, falafel salad as well as the crispy Brussels sprouts. The pizza was greasy topped with room temperature duck and an almost hard boiled egg atop. The salad was the best though the falafel was rock hard. Then the Brussel sprouts were so sweet it was as if they were dusted in confectioners sugar And swimming in maple syrup. To say we were underwhelmed is an understatement. Perhaps this was a bad night, we won’t be back to see if it was.

Lazy Goat really under performed this Easter. Many years of dining here and this was cold. Grey, and even looked unsanitary on the Buffett. The meat carver grabbed the meat with his hands and put it on my plate. Horrible meal. We should have left. But it was easter and we were afraid of not getting a table.

First time dining here. Dined outside. Area was littered with cigarette butts on stairs and blowing debris. Food was very good (paella) to bland (pizza). Service was very good, although majority of staff were distracted by rather large indoor rehearsal party, which we did not know about when making reservations

However small plates were very interesting and flavorful and we would return.

We had great service! Very prompt with bringing over our appetizers. The food was fantastic! Brussel sprouts were the best I’ve ever had, so were the scallops! Delish! Loved the mussels also with the grilled chibatta! Yum! Didn’t love the butternut squash ravioli but everything else was excellent. Would recommend to anyone!

We went at 5pm on a Tuesday and were the first guests. Everyone was friendly and we were seated by a window overlooking the river. Very nice. Food came out fast and delicious. Be aware of the falafel. It was delicious but one went flying off the salad and onto the floor when we tried to cut it in half.

While visiting Greenville, my family enjoyed a lovely meal here. The tables are well spaced, so you are not sitting on top of your neighbors. The view of the Riverwalk was great. Two of my party are vegetarians and multiple options were available. The kitchen also had flexibility to remove objectionable ingredients. The salads were large and can be shared as a first course. The Brussels sprouts (without the pork at my request ) were excellent. I had the paella which was fantastic. The others shared a pizza and salads which they enjoyed. We will be back.

Everything was okay... service was lacking. We were never told about any specials, we waited 35 minutes for our appetizers.. then food followed quickly after. The mussel appetizer was amazing, by far the best thing about the night. We waited 5 minutes for our drink refills. Then were quickly rushed out. Nothing was outstanding but it wasn’t the worst I’ve ever had. Won’t be running back

Initially I was a bit dismayed with the parking situation as I had dogs in my car, but The Lazy Goat had the answer, their patio is dog friendly, and the patio setting is absolutely gorgeous. It was the perfect setting for a nice lunch on the river. The food was delicious, but how can you go wrong with grilled cheese with pesto? Would love to visit this restaurant again with the dogs and then go for a nice walk along the river after.

Unfortunately the Lazy Goat restaurant did NOT preform as a top eatery. Servers overwhelmed and underperformed. Lamb appetizers came out cold and we waited to long for delivery. Meals were okay, again cold...Fish plate was delicious, but small portions and the eggplant dish was cold, sent back and they did not even top off portion. Service was overall poor! Guess a crazy St. Patty’s at the Goat...improvement needed.

I was on a business trip and the Lazy Goat was close to the hotel since I was arriving late in the evening . The selection was difficult as I was unfamiliar with most of the dishes. I had a salad and an unusual pizza dish called Duck Duck Goat. Both were very good. A little noisy, but overall enjoyable.

I have always liked the Lazy Goat but they kicked it up a notch with the hiring of Wilbert Sauceda as Executive Chef. He isn't a chef, he's an artist. Great hire!

Exploding with flavor! The best way to describe a North African-seasoned pork dish and the Fig Date Night carrot cake. Server very knowledgable about the wine and menu items & delighted in telling us about the. Great setting overlooking the Reedy River. But hard to find, since it's on the back, river-facing side of the building, and a level below the street. But well worth the search.
