Me & my wife stopped in after a afternoon concert. Without reservations, We were initially told that no tables were available. However, a couple had not arrived for their reservation, so the hostess called and found out that they would not be coming, so we got their table. The shrimp & Grits I ordered, & the beef tips my wife... More

Our second visit, this time with our "kids" (18 & 22) for dinner before a show at the Peace Center. With budding adventure in their tastebuds, the kids were able to try familiar foods that had been updated with new flavors. Both times I've eaten one of the entree specials and have not been disappointed. Pleasant atmosphere, centrally located on... More

The name says it all -- Southern Bistro. Very pleasant atmosphere. Attentive wait staff. Our meals were delicious. Bacon wrapped scallops. Fried chicken. Grilled tuna. Crab stuffed salmon. Very good. Reasonably priced but high end.

Extensive menu with so many choices you just want to sample some of all. Being in a large group I did get to sample about 6 different plates. Definitely would return.

Enjoyed supper on the patio. A nicely done Manhattan. Excellently prepared pecan crusted red snapper on sautéed spinach and delicious stone ground grits, great fried catfish with lovely collard greens, good shrimp and grits although our dining companion thought the tasso did not works as well with the dish as does andouille sausage. A very enjoyable dining experience.

Stopped into sassafras for a small appetizer and a glass of wine. The food was really tasty and so filling that dinner was not necessary. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the conversation and excellent service.

My daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner was held here. The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious and the service was exceptional! I can't wait to return for dinner.

Greenville is a cool city with awesome dining options. This makes it a difficult decision. However, the Blue Crab Nachos at Sassafras sealed the deal for us. Whether as an appetizer or a meal, the nachos is a generous serving of deliciousness. We also enjoyed the wasabi-crusted yellowfin tuna (rare, of course). The venue was a perfect place to share...

Jack and I went here for dinner after a long day of walking. I made a reservation and asked for a quiet table; we got it. Then I asked to be moved away from the fan; we got it - all with a smile. The menu made it hard to decide what to order, but the special: mahi mahi on... More
