We could smell the food from a block away!! And then it tasted just as good as it smelled! It was a busy Saturday night so we opted to sit outside in order to be seated faster. Our server was helpful and efficient and our food was out in no time. While we waited it was entertaining to watch all... More

I love this mac and cheese. It's a side, but it's amazing. The food itself is good, and I have been several times, some with excellent service, other times with cold food. Really slow service overall.

We stopped here on a Sunday for lunch while traveling through the area and are very happy that we did. We were seated promptly and our order was taken quickly by our server, Mari, who chatted with us briefly. We shared a pulled pork plate with two sides (potato salad and cole slaw). My wife ordered unsweetened tea, which she... More

Smoke on the Water is a place I always take out-of-town guests for a taste of what Greenville is all about. Their food is consistently delicious and it's a great example of how Greenville is taking classic Southern cuisine and elevating it to a whole new level of special. We've had some wonderful meals here, including one surprise party, and... More

A nice Friday afternoon should not take 40 minutes to get your food! Particularly for what we had! Either the service was slow or they got backed up in the kitchen! Disappointing experience overall. This needs fixing or business will drop as a one time place to visit.

We heard a lot of good things about this place before we visited. The food was good. Just good, nothing special. The atmosphere was appealing in the Downtown area. Great service. But I honestly can't say it was the best BBQ ever. The food was good but I didn't see much bang for the buck. I know it is an... More

Service makes you feel welcome, beginning to end. Server was attentive and knew the menu well. Nice selection of beers. Food is awesome. It is clear that the ownership intends to be the best they can be.

Food, pretty "meh". Waiter was not very conscious of "not rushing" the patrons. Would not suggest as a place to go. Of the things we had only the fried green tomatoes and onion rings were worthwhile.

Great Food, Service... over all, a phenomenal atmosphere! Also, great for Business Dinners, Families and Couples. Upscale with a very friendly staff. I always order the Prime Rib because it is absolutely delicious! After all, I can always go to other places for other food, but not Prime Rib as good as here.

This is an awesome spot! Only had drinks here, but very strong drinks, friendly bartenders and great atmosphere- lively environment. Check it out if in the area!
