This restaurant has an interesting selection of dishes. The overall style is Mediterranean and the decor is beautiful, including a lovely outdoor area with a view of the river. One in our party is vegetarian and had no difficulty selecting from the menu.

WOW. Having enjoyed several restaurant week venues in Greenville...this one is great. Great options, amazing pricing and delicious food. Drinks and wines are top notch as well. Plus, the service was super. Go for the brussel sprouts!!!

In the spring or fall I highly recommend dining alfresco here. With the falls in full view the scenery can't be beat! The food and service is great too!

We were very disappointed with our visit to the Lazy Goat. Although the menu looked delicious, we found the food to be quite bland and flavourless. The server was very slow and unattentive and didn’t even ask if we wanted dessert - which I did...More

I love the creativity of the menu here. The Brussel sprouts are always a favorite before every meal. The view overlooking the river is fantastic and adds to the overall experience. Our family has never had a bad meal here!

We've been 4-5 times for dinner and it has been consistently amazing. The brussels sprouts and truffle fries are some of the best things I have put in my mouth. However, we had friends in town from England and took them for lunch expecting there...More

I was very disappointed in this restaurant. The menu is limited and the dishes were not up to the high prices. Although some of the dining area offers an excellent view, the restaurant is not easily accessed.

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".
