Located very centrally in Greenville. Prices mid range. Looks like a huge wine cellar there. Very nice place, just my meat was overcooked. They immediate offered me a new one on the house, but i didn’t have that much time. I’ll try again next time...More

Great location downtown and outside dining is very cozy and nicely lit. Close to the river of course and the service is good without being overbearing. Recommended.

Nice venue & location, very nice waitstaff. We had a work event here, the steak was the saltiest steak I’ve ever had, as if it was going to be preserved without refrigeration. A good steak should need to be destroyed this way, a shame. If...More
