Downtown Greenville is an exciting, vibrant place so pick a spot for lunch, dinner or cocktails where you enjoy the view.

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 Green Room offers sidewalk seating along North Main Street, just outside a turn-of-the-century building. At The Green Room, choose from a variety of upscale comfort foods while you're immersed in the festive street life.

Mary's at Falls Cottage is surrounded by a beautiful garden overlooking Falls Park and is unique for its historic cottage dating back to 1893. The food is fresh and local.

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.

High Cotton serves excellent foods that celebrate the region's fishermen and farmers. With a glass wall on the Reedy River, the view is spectacular. Outside dining is also available.

Restaurant 17 is actually just up the road in Traveler's 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.)
