About Greenville, SC Restaurants

Integrating local traditions, culinary trends and international influences, Greenville offers an eclectic dining scene. A number of the city's top restaurants are located downtown, where patrons enjoy the fun atmosphere and convenience to hotels, bars and attractions. Overlooking the Reedy, High Cotton boasts big city vibe and a stunning interior. Down the street, consistently stellar Soby's offers a contemporary, gourmet spin on Southern cuisine. International eateries are received by an enthusiastic local clientele, and the offerings have expanded from standbys like Italian, Mexican and Chinese cuisine to include less familiar fare, such as Vietnamese, Indian and Middle Eastern. However the influx of new flavors has yet to overrun favorite local traditions such as the meat and three, a homestyle restaurant that specializes in a plate of meat, often fried chicken or pork, BBQ, turkey or roast beef; with three side items that might include cooked veggies, mac 'n cheese, potatoes or rice. You'll find them all over town, but Tommy's Country Ham House and Stax's Original are classic examples.
