We were celebrating out anniversary. The owner was very kind and seated us earlier than out reservation. He came by our table to make sure everything was good and even sent us a dessert on the house. Loved being able to set outside. My husbands steak was tender and cooked to perfection and the crab cakes were great! We came here on a recommendation from a family member and we were not disappointed.
Really good time especially being our first time eating out since March or so. Glad we chose Sassafras!
Great first experience! The food, drinks, and service were all excellent!
My fiancée and I were in town celebrating her birthday and thought this would be a great date night dinner. Our reservation was at 7pm, and we arrived around 6:30. The owner shuffled around some tables and seated us immediately, which was nice. Our server was great! We had blue crab nachos as an appetizer, ahi tuna as my main course, blackened salmon as hers. We shared a brownie a la mode for dessert and had a bottle of wine shared during the meal. The owner came by and checked on us twice, talked a little and made the experience personal. I’d highly recommend!
Sassafras was great. The food & service was outstanding. I will definitely make reservations when I’m in Greenville again! My entire party enjoyed our dinner experience. Thank you!!
Wonderful service and amazing food! First time there and we will definitely come back!
Out dining experience was great from the wait staff, food ambience everything!! We will be visiting there again!!
Great food, service and atmosphere
Great location, service, and food! The Sassafras team is doing a great job providing safe service; all employees were wearing masks, sanitizing open tables, and were altogether mindful. Their outdoor seating is well spaced, so you and your party can enjoy a great meal in as safe a manner as possible.
We sat in the bar area with a high top table. Wasn’t noisy. It was very clear they had tables placed safely for social distancing. Food was great. Blue crab nachos were good, my wife had shrimp and grits and they were very good. Wife also had some type of green colored martini that was very good. We had the she crab soup and it was ok. Overall a great experience. We will return.
Favorite restaurant in Greenville. Consistently 5 star.
Our food did not come out as described. My husbands chicken salad was awful. The chicken was not cut properly and he was unable to chew it. It was as hard as rubber bands. My stuffed chicken came out with no stuffing so had to send it back . Was not worth the price. The food should have been fabulous for the price.
This is one of the best places in Greenville to eat. The shrimp and grits are to die for. The food and service are outstanding and the buildings history is wonderful.
Good meal for a night out. If looking for great cuisine, I'd go elsewhere.
Had an 8 pm reservation and was not seated until 8:40.
We were told that there was a large party that would not leave taking up 3 - 4 person tables. There were 2 other parties waiting for a reservation also that eventually left. The hostess also said they were an hour past when they were supposed to leave.
I asked if anyone had said something to them and the answer was no. Suggested a manager approach the table and was ignored.
Looked for the owner who we’d met several times before but he was no where to be found.
After we were finally seated he comes by to see how we were doing! I explained what had happened and he totally ignored it, and did absolutely nothing. Just made a couple lame excuses while he was mia.
This is how you treat regular customers?!! Didn’t even offer to buy us a drink. What an idiot.
We will not be back.
Excellent food and service. Owner/manager came by our table to ask about our meal.
Predictably, out of town visitors want to return to Sassafras when visiting us. Predictably, Sassafras was awesome again! Service and food both off the charts!
Went to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary. From the time we stepped in we were given top notch service. Charlesey was our server and we did not lack for anything.
Tommy ordered the steak and I ordered the scallops. Every thing was cooked to perfection. The owner came out to check and see if we enjoyed our meal. We topped off the meal with dessert of Beignets with caramelized apples and vanilla ice cream on the side. Delicious. We love this place and will be back again.
The seafood trio was delicious. Manager stopped by to check on us. Great restaurant.
Great as always!
This place is great all around for date night or group outing. Right downtown, great location, easy to get to, and the food is class comfort. See you tomorrow!
Great food, great service, will definitely return again soon.
Mike was tremendous and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the atmosphere!
We love Sassafras! The food is always on point and we have always left with a smile on our face!
Great food and enjoyable atmosphere! We were visiting our daughter at college for my birthday and the whole experience was amazing. The owner dropped by and even gave us desserts for my celebration!
The food at Sassafras, as well as the service, is consistently outstanding. My Wife and I eat dinner there frequently and that's the reason we keep going back. It is also nice to see Mr. Hill, the Owner, stop by the tables and check how are things.
I always enjoy eating at Sassafras. The food is impeccable and the service first class. It was my birthday and I knew exactly where I wanted to go. I even received a free dessert. The scallops and the pimento cheese steak are my favorites. I can't wait till I get to go back. Ten stars!
Great food and service
Most all of our meals were very good, except I had the Yellowfin entree'. While I know (and insist on) a rare tuna steak....this was rare BUT the center was actually very cold. Almost like they had a very chilled piece of fish, seared it, but it was too cold to begin with. (I do a great deal of food prep). Otherwise all enjoyed the dining experience.
Parking was easy and close by. We walked right in and sat on time for
The menu had enough fantastic looking options to make it a little difficult to choose but it was not overloaded with unnecessary options. The apps were great, fried pickles and pimento cheese fondue. Entrees were great, beef en croute, rib eye and tuna. Mixed drinks were lacking, but wine selection was nice.
Overall I would recommend and go back, if for nothing else than the beef en croute.
Sometimes forgotten about due to location but a low key top spot for a date night. Food and atmosphere are great as well.
We are new to Greenville, so we tried Sassafras based on the reviews. This is a really great place! First of all, the seating was sparse due to the social distance, which made it really quiet. The Mgr asked if he could open the large door to the patio...great idea...fresh air. The waiter was very personable, and informative. The Mahi Mahi over grits was really good. Fish cooked proper, and amazing grits. My wife had seafood trio with risotto...I tasted the risotto, and it was cooked perfectly...nice flavor. Wonderful experience from Mgr to waiter, to the food.
The food and service were all outstanding. The owner came by and actually talked with us.
Always a delicious meal and excellent service. Never disappoints!
We went to Greenville for a few days. We ended up at sassafras on Monday night for dinner and it was so good we went back Tuesday night. Everything we had was perfect. Scallops, shrimp, yellow fin, and pork tenderloin were all amazing! Wine and homemade margaritas were great.
Dorian was our server both nights and he totally took care of every need.
We met the owner the second night. He so nice and had built a great business.
I can not recommend enough that you should try this. Every dish that came out was top shelf.
Excellent food and service.... A great place to go!!!
Excellent food, wine a little over proved for what they were serving / what I ordered.
Was a great experience all around would recommend to all my friends
A must if you’re in downtown Greenville! We loved the food and atmosphere and will definitely be returning ASAP!
