My son recommended The Lazy Goat for our Friday night dinner. We had a lovely dinner at the restaurant. Our seats overlooked the Reedy River and Peace Center. The Lamb Appetizer Delicious! The fried Goat Cheese -Awesome as well as the pimento cheese with ciabatta bread. Drink-"Lemonade" and Mojito! Dinner fabulous. Pizza and the specials.

That really says it all. Waited to order. Lunch delivered and didn't see the waitress until she delivered my check.

I travel all over and eat out several times a week. This restaurant did not disappoint. Try the Brussels sprout appetizer and mussels with chorizo. Awesome. The risotto and steak were done perfectly and the spicy chicken breastfeeding was amazing. The caramel dessert was scarfed as was the chocolate cake

I take my little girl to the Peace Center to see shows and performances several times per year. Each time we go to a show, she asks if we can go to "our favorite restaurant"--the Lazy Goat. She loves the Shirley Temples and the truffle french fries are an absolute must! The press coffee and desserts are delicious as well!... More

Brought a group of six here for a business dinner. Crowded, noisy. The service was terrible. Barely had our salads on the table and they brought our entrees. My salad was supposed to be arugula with roasted walnuts, red onion in a Gorgonzola vinegrette. It was a big bowl of arugula. No onion. A few walnuts...not roasted. Very boring. Most... More

The lazy goat, on first sight, seems to be an out of way place. When you enter their front door you are on a side street between two hotels that are above the river. Upon entering, and proceeding downstairs to their main dining room, you realize that the restaurant sits above the walking promenade and overlooks the river. One of... 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".
