Downtown Greenville is an exciting, vibrant place so, pick a spot for lunch, dinner or cocktails where you can enjoy the view. Here are nine great choices:
SIP Tasting Room & Rooftop Lounge overlooks the city's lively Main Street. SIP offers twinkling treetop views of the city, as well as more than 40 different wines by the glass and such menu items as cheese boards, dessert and pizzas.
Passerelle Bistro is nestled at the base of Greenville's most notable monument, the Liberty Bridge. Sit indoors or out to take in the view of Falls Park while you relax and enjoy French-inspired cuisine that incorporates a local twist.
Roost at the NOMA Square on Main Street, Roost is the perfect place to sit and listen to live music for Thursday night's Downtown Alive and Main Street Fridays.
The Lazy Goat offers delicious Mediterranean food, with great views from inside the restaurant or the enormous patio that overlooks the Peace Center outdoor amphitheater.
Blue's Boulevard Jazz is a perfect spot for Sunday brunch because of its location on the Reedy River and Swamp Rabbit Trail. This jazz and blues venue stands out for its emphasis on live music matched with upscale specialty drinks and entrées.
Restaurant 17 is actually just up the road in Travelers Rest. Restaurant 17 marries innovative cuisine with an incredible atmosphere to create one enchanting dining experience. The restaurant boasts extraordinary views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and you may even find yourself dining next to professional cyclist George Hincapie (who created Hotel Domestique after his retirement.)
Halls Chophouse is as lauded for its prime steaks as it is for its elegant dining room, appointed with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame striking views of the city and Reedy River. Dine outside for flawless visuals of Falls Park.
Up on the Roof is the perfect place for panoramic views of the city and the Blue Ridge mountains. From the lobby of the Embassy Suites at Riverplace, take the elevator to the rooftop and enjoy inspired small plates, hand-crafted cocktails, fine wines and craft beers while drinking in the stunning vistas.
Larkin's on the River offers fine dining in a restored Civil War era building along the banks of the Reedy River. Reserve a patio table where you'll have an impressive vantage point for viewing the falls while dining on fine steaks, fresh seafood and more.
