We had a lovely meal at Lazy Goat, despite a pretentious hostess. We arrived just before 5pm on a drizzly Saturday afternoon, with almost no one in the restaurant. When we told the hostess we didn’t have a reservation, she said “we always recommend that you have a reservation, we’ll see if we can fit you in.” Fortunately, they did... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Greenville. An awesome spot that looks over the river with always great food and service. I usually like to get a few appetizers. Some of my favorites are the Duck Duck Goat Pizza, Mussels, Parm Truffle Fries, Pimento Cheese, Fried Goat Cheese, Brussel Sprouts, and Moroccan Lamb. There drinks are always amazing... More

My husband and I had gone to the matinee showing at Peace Theatre and headed over to the Lazy Goat afterward, trying to squeeze in for an early dinner, as we didn't have reservations. They were crazy busy: a dog rally on the balcony and all tables reserved. We got a small table in the bar area and had superb... More

For two years in a row my company has hosted our annual planning meeting at The Lazy Goat. The upstairs room is perfect for our small group (around 20, but could easily fit twice that) and the staff are always accommodating to our needs. AV equipment has never had an issue. Lunch was superb both years. Our only complaint is... More

we had a large party (11-12) for lunch on the weekend. The service was very good, the beer selection great and the appetizers were wonderful (really). If you do nothing else GET THE ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS!!!!! They aren't on the regular menu but order them anyway...you will love them, even if you hate brussel sprouts. That said, the lunch entrees... More

Nice view and comfy place. Lots of empty tables and still couldn't pick a seat. Appetizers are a little pricey but still worth a shot

We eat here about twice a year on trips to Greenville and have never been disappointed. Nice selection of European wines reasonably priced. We always start with a platter of three cheese and three cured meats. Usually about eight cheese and five meats to choose from and different each trip. We followed with crispy Brussels sprouts, truffle fries and Morrocan... More

The location of this resto is prime and overlooks the Reedy River area of downtown Greenville. It's a nice setting for a date or a group of friends. We had drinks at the bar, which were well mixed and then had dinner by the window. Dishes to definitely try include the brussel sprouts, mussels and the goat cheese balls. The... More

I was very disappointed. We felt like an inconvenience. They have a beautiful patio that is obviously rented out for parties as we tried twice to get in only to be told it was booked. We were seated at a table inside with a lovely view. We observed many poor practices and the service was pathetic. Yet there were many... More

My husband took me to the Lazy Goat for Valentine's Day. We had hummus appetizer (hummus excellent, pita very good, carrot sticks dry and unpalatable). We both had baked chicken which was excellent. The sauce was slightly spicy, and the chicken moist and flavorful. We shared a chocolate torte for dessert. That was good, if sparse. I only have two... More

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".
