The perfect atmosphere with the right food. Delicious
Ate outside, Jessica did an excellent job and it was a lovely and delicious dinner
We loved the appetizers, and the chef treated us to a dessert for our anniversary. We loved the ambiance and service as well. We were slightly disappointed with our entrees, especially at the price point. Overall, we had a good experience.
Great food and service. We had a slight problem with our entree, but they were quick to fix it and the manager came over personally and apologized, then checked back in later. Would love to go back!
Menu options very limited. What we did order was low quality for the price. Best thing was the view & the wine.
Cindy, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. I would be happy to speak to you for more details and the opportunity to make things right if you are open to that. Please feel free to e-mail me or call 864-679-5299. Ken Preston - General Manager
We had the family sharing option. The food was delicious and more than enough for 4 people- the minimum number of recommended guests to order.

Amazing mix of Mediterranean but with some unique twists. The goat cheese, lamb and falafels are great, but so are the homemade pastas, and the fried chicken. Haven't found a meal we don't like yet.
The food was fantastic, the patio by the river was beautiful and the waitress, Ansley, was amazing and very knowledgeable! The brussel sprouts are a must. The Duck Duck Goat pizza and Raviolo di Spinaci with shrimp were great. Definitely going back.
Service was really good. Main dish was not the best but appetizer and family members dish was great.
So my wife and I have eaten a number of places (Chicago, Charleston, Savannah, San Diego)…and I’ve written a lot of reviews….but this was the BEST food we’ve ever had.
We did it somewhat tapas style, which isn’t really intended, but we were happy we did! We ordered 6 different things and everything blew us away. Food was unique, flavorful, hot, served well, and just SO good. This place is top notch.
I would have liked it for the food alone, but then you add the ambience of being right on the river, giant windows, and a unique setting, can’t do any better. It isn’t cheap, but —and I rarely say this— it was worth the price.
Service was great also. Overall 11/10. Well done The Lazy Goat. GREAT. JOB.
Amazing service beautiful view and great food
Definitely a must if you are in Greenville and if you have a special occasion
Nice views at night. Good food.
It was a busy evening in downtown Greenville. Live music was playing at the amphitheatre across the river so it was really loud even inside the restaurant (door to the patio left open) and hard to have a conversation. BUT, happy to have life back on the Reedy... Food was great, our waitress was top notch. Will definitely go back.
Great food, great service, great views overlooking downtown Greenville and Reedy River. We love The Lazy Goat!
Our server, Stella, was top-notch. The Lazy Goat is one of those rare restaurants were everything comes together well - ambiance, food, and service. We'll be back with our whole family next time.
They didn’t have the wine we ordered and waitress didn’t know what others were available similar in taste and price. Took forever to get bottle. The apettizers were very good!
So sweet! Thank you!! One of our favorite sweet place in Greenville with sweet memories!
Great service, food and ambiance. Go there, you won't be disappointed.
We shared the all-inclusive family style dinner. All of the courses were delicious. Crispy fried chicken and the trout were good. All the first course dishes were terrific as well, the brussel sprouts, the goat cheese and the salad. Overall a fun experience.
Wonderful dinner experience. Food arrived a little cool. But otherwise it was delightful.
Took forever to get food. There were tables that were at after us that got their food before we did. Clearly something got screwed up. Food is okay the quinoa in the falafel bowl has zero flavor/seasoning
Jessica was an amazing, knowledgeable server. She recommended the perfect dishes and the right amount of food. The food was outstanding. We’re from NY and dine out often, this place was top notch.
Lazy Goat is a hotel restaurant in serious culinary decline. The sparsely decorated main dining room was almost empty for a Friday evening. We ordered a charcuterie board for an appetizer and the food runner was unable to identify anything on it other than cheddar cheese. The trout entre tasted old, undercooked, and was served in a tomato soup broth. The paella with shrimp was equally bad and poorly flavoured, making it inedible even with copious amounts of salt & pepper added in a vain attempt to instill some life. The one and only bright spot (other than the view of the river) was the house red sangria. Avoid.
Great time. Great food. Amazing service.
Our service, particularly our waitress, Krista, was awesome! The whole meal and experience was delightful. We will be back!
Food, service and the view were outstanding! Will be back!
The service and food is outstanding! So happy no masks and seated us by a window overlooking river great atmosphere! Clark was a great server will be back!
Even considering the impact of the pandemic, the menu was limited and the food uninspired. The Smoked Paprika Tagliatelle that I had was so overwhelmed with chorizo and red pepper flakes that the homemade Tagliatelle itself was smothered. Our server asked if we wanted "to add protein to the dish," but the was plenty of chorizo included already. The service was slow even though the restaurant wasn't even half full. The dessert menu consisted of only three items, none of which were particularly appealing. A sorbet is fine and appropriately Mediterranean, but a sorbet is hardly something in itself that justifies comprising ⅓ of the dessert menu.
Amazing dinner. As always. Lazy Goat is a MUST when in Greenville, especially seating by the waterfall outside.
I was introducing my partner to this amazing Mediterranean restaurant! Everything was delicious! Highly recommend goat cheese balls, Brussel sprouts, and Moroccan lamb.
I was looking forward to our second trip back there since the first time it was an amazing experience. The service from our waitress was top notch. That basically was the highlight of the dining experience. The appetizer was good along with the salad. My main course the angus beef was like chewing on rubber bands. I basically had to chew it then spit it out. My wife had the trout and it came out cold and portion was extremely small. The red sauce had zero flavor. We still tipped over 20% because our waitress was awesome. I left very disappointed.
it's our go to in greenville
We found the food to be pretty uninspired and disappointing. My salmon was completely unseasoned and over cooked. The pasta my husband ordered tasted like it had been sitting out for hours. The staff were not especially friendly.
We ate outside. Ambience was good but the food was not worth the price.
Amazing staff. Very friendly. Wonderful wine selection. Food was great! And the ambience, and view are top notch
Ambience was nice. Beautiful view of the river. Waitress was nice and knowledgeable. Food vwas okay but not great.
Our dining experience was great from reservation desk to our server. Food was great
It was amazing! We had La Paella and the Mediterranean fried chicken Delicious!
One of my favorites!
