“Taste of South Carolina”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We held a dinner event for our leadership team. This restaurant is in easy walking distance from our hotel. the decor was beautiful with exposed brick walls and open dining areas in a beautifully restored warehouse. We were greeted and promptly seated. There were about 35 of us but we had a private dining area which was quiet enough for conversation without having to shout. The servers were exceptional and very attentive. The meals did not all come out of the kitchen at one time so some of us had meals getting cold while others waited to be served. It was the size of the group that was the issue I am sure, but we did have a pre fixe limited menus for the event. The portions were huge and the meat was very tender and delicious. The cheese and macaroni side dish was an odd square, but the greens were perfect. The key lime pie was wonderful! All in all, a most enjoyable evening.

“Favorite!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

The whole staff know how to take care of customers here. We eat here 2-3 times a month and have never been disappointed. The food is high quality featuring rotating specials. A couple favorites include the salmon and stuffed chicken. The sautéed spinach is a must for us! Great value too.

“Best Dinner of Week Long Visit”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Located set back from Main Street behind Mast General Store which made it a little difficult to find to start but well worth the search. Older brick building which has been completely renovated with sparkling brass, a beautiful bar, and extremely nice seating and decor. Service was superb from start to finish and food was beyond outstanding. Sassafras has now become my favorite restaurant in greenville . I also visited High Cotton, Soby's, Rick Irwins and a few others on this visit. All very very good but this was the most enjoyable overall.

“Southern style…..”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We stopped into the Sassafras after a busy day about town. Have been visiting Greenville for some time and this restaurant is holding it's own against a lot of new comers. Jake waited on us and was just wonderful, had great suggestions and knew what he was talking about. We had a wonderful appetizer which was special that evening, a type of potato pancake with shrimp which was delicious. We also both had fish with the savory grits, just scrumptious. Perfect ending to our day. We will definitely visit again and had a lovely experience

“Business trip to Greenville”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Hands down one of my top two restaurants in Greenville. The Southern Fried Chicken is my favorite but the steaks are spot on!!! Half price wine night on Wednesday, get there early or plan on a little wait - and worth every minute of wait time.
