What is really amazing is that within a mile-and-a-half stretch of Main Street, there are now more than 110 restaurants, overwhelmingly many locally owned, and excellent. Here are just a few:
Sticky Fingers Rib House
Our BBQ restaurants are home of the best barbecue from Charleston to Greenville and Jacksonville to Chattanooga. You might’ve heard of our legendary Memphis-style hickory-smoked ribs, wings, and barbecue, but there’s more to us than our award-winning food (and rugged good looks). Our local barbecue restaurants combine legendary customer service with a welcoming, laid-back atmosphere for a truly crave-able experience.
Welcome to Augusta Grill. For over 20 years, we’ve offered artfully prepared, elegant American cuisine inspired by flavors and techniques from all over the world. Our menu includes a variety of dishes from seasonally-inspired heirloom tomato salads or our melon and proscuitto appetizer to beloved classics like our famous crab cakes and perfectly prepared filet mignons.
Smoke on the Water
Serving comfort food in a warm inviting atmosphere. Specialties are smoked items – prime rib, beef brisket, baby back ribs, and pulled pork. And it doesn’t stop there. Chicken, seafood, burgers, and an amazing mix of sides. A variety of “saucy” sauces are available – tomato, mustard, sweet or vinegar-based. And don’t forget dessert. Smoke serves an amazing Jack Daniel’s Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie, Fried Bourbon Bread Pudding, daily cobblers and fried Bananas Foster. The restaurant's busy bar has one of Greenville’s best happy hours.
Davani's specialized in delicious and reasonably priced cuisine, including house specialties and other customer favorites. Entrees are served in a relaxed and welcoming setting that you and your friends
and family are sure to enjoy.
Green Lettuce USA
Intimate cafe serving Persian, American & Mediterranean-inspired dishes for lunch & dinner.
As Greenville’s premier steakhouse, we offer wet and dry-aged USDA Prime and Choice Beef as well as locally-sourced fish, poultry, vegetarian and gluten-free options. The Halls Chophouse menu features expertly-crafted dishes that highlight the essence of culinary creativity and distinguished flavor.
Halls Chophouse originated in Charleston, South Carolina, and has recently been named “Best Steakhouse in America”, according to Yelp users.
Pomegranate on Main
Experience the refreshingly subtle, yet flavorful, Persian cuisine by dining with us at Pomegranate on Main. All of our menu items are prepared fresh daily using traditional recipes made with fresh ingredients. Persian cuisine requires the balance of flavors like pairing sweet pomegranate with earthy walnut to make the Fesenjan stew or lentils with raisins in the delicately prepared basmati rice. All entrees are gluten-free with various vegetarian options.
When you go out to eat, it is more than just filling your belly. Dining out is a sense of community… sharing food and drinks with your family, your loved ones, your besties. You want to be taken care of, catered to and indulged with tasty creations that comfort while offering exciting new flavors.
Our menu features high quality seasonal foods, built by a team of culinary professionals who have a passion for food and truly love what they do.
Whenever possible, we procure our ingredients from local sources, reaping from the bounty that this rich and vibrant region has to offer and we prepare them in a way that honors the ingredient as well as the local culture. We like to call our concept “soil to city.”
Trio (A Brick Oven Restaurant)
In the heart of historic downtown Greenville, Trio welcomes you with its unique atmosphere of handcrafted gas lanterns lining rustic brick walls. An eclectic fare of gourmet wood-fired pizzas are a specialty, with sauces made fresh daily and in such intriguing combinations as roast chicken with basil pesto. A wide variety of homemade pasta dishes. Rotisserie chicken as well as a variety of wraps and sandwiches. An extensive wine list offers over 25 wines by the glass.
The Velo Fellow
Quaint European-style hub with eclectic fare, craft brews & spirits, plus live music & shuffleboard.
Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina mountains we call home. Our recipes are simply crafted and made from scratch with responsibly sourced ingredients that bring the best of every season. For over 15 years, we have infused our Southern spirit into every bite.
The historic Westin Poinsett Hotel (where George Clooney filmed parts of Leatherheads and where every Greenville girl dreams of having her wedding reception) has a new gastro-pub called Nose Dive, where Chef Joey Pearson does a sensationally good housemade pretzel lavished with devilled crab and white cheddar that goes well with the array of beers like RJ Rockers Bell Ringer Ale made in Spartanburg, S.C., and Thomas Creek River Falls red made right in town. Relaxed watering hole with a menu of elevated pub fare plus cocktails, wine & handcrafted beers.
Rich in history and rustic charm, Soby’s New South Cuisine is the quintessential gathering place, where the heart and spirit of Greenville have come together for more than 20 years to experience exceptional food, wine, cocktails, and craft beer. Offering a menu of southern-inspired cuisine with a focus on locally-grown, seasonal ingredients, Soby’s puts a modern twist on classic regional dishes and presents them in a casually elegant ambiance. As one of the city’s best, most iconic and beloved restaurants, your stay in Greenville isn’t complete without a meal at Soby’s
The Lazy Goat
Victoria Ann Moore — whom Esquire three years ago named a "Chef to Keep Your Eye On" — is one of the true innovators here. She is the executive chef at the Lazy Goat, where she brought into the city a wide array of Mediterranean flavors and ideas, from fine charcuterie of Jamón Serrano Ibérico, Italian salami, and Spanish country cheeses to dishes like succulent braised pork belly with cannellini bean cassoulet and papas bravas potatoes with fire onions, chorizo, and saffron aïoli.
