Ate here during restaurant week and opted for the special menu. The crispy Brussels spouts were very good...at first... but there was a sweetness that became annoying the more we ate. The speck was not salty enough to counter the cloying sweetness. The sprouts were very crispy. The rainbow trout entree was extremely good and well prepared but it was... More

Had a business dinner with several colleagues - two were Spanish, one from Mexico, others from USA. Good appetizers. Some of us tried the Paella (including me). Our Spanish friends gave the Paella a "not that great" rating. It was too salty. Overall atmosphere was nice.

My friends and I came here for lunch. I got a falafel pita, and it was AMAZING. For a place with the kind of semi fancy atmosphere this place has, I was impressed by both the prices and the portion sizes. The wait staff was polite and attentive, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

I was excited to eat at The Lazy Goat. The layout, design and ambiance of the restaurant is very inviting. I enjoyed the Fried Goat Cheese with honey, the pizza wasn't anything special. I left still hungry due to small portions. Wait staff was nice and friendly though.

Bland food, ok service, over priced wine. It's ok if it's convenient but not the best choice for what you pay.

One does not expect such quality food from a simple menu.. meatballs sandwich, cheese pizza, shrimp skewers, etc, but somehow it was so nicely done, so well prepared that amazed our group... from ebay it should be a quick lunch, it became a culinary adventure. Great chef, good selection for the menu , an impressively juicy chicken shawarma and we... More

Stopped in for dinner while traveling to Greenville, SC. Had the Turkish Chicken and the Lamb Chop special. Both were excellent and the service was also outstanding.

The Lazy Goat is a Mediterranean-themed restaurant with a menu featuring global influences from Spain, Morocco, Italy, France, Greece, Africa and the Middle East and a relaxed atmosphere where taking the time to "linger and share" is encouraged. The diverse menu was created to accommodate a variety of diner preferences with meat & cheese plates, small plates to “graze and nibble,” and main dishes. Guests are invited to take their time while "trying a little bit of that and a little bit of that" or a "whole lot of whatever they like".
