The Lazy Goat

Dining on the Reedy River with the person you love is even better when you’re enjoying a meal prepared by Chef Beau Owens. Save room for dessert because Chef Tania Harris creates desserts you will not want to share!

Their menu features Mediterranean-inspired dishes and some of the best Sangria in the Upstate. If more casual cuisine in an upscale setting is what you are looking for, they also have wood-fired pizza on the menu.

We love Stella’s Southern Bistro for our fancy dinners. It is just sumptuous food. The staff is kind and a smaller space means they can give you plenty of attention. everything from appetizers to desserts is wonderful.

If you and your honey are into more exotic cuisine, Saskatoon is the place to tantalize your taste buds. Saskatoon offers diners entrees with wild game such as buffalo, elk, antelope, kangaroo, alligator, and ostrich. For the less adventurous, they offer more common protein selections also.

Greenville, SC

Saskatoon went Wednesday and it was amazing. It’s a wild life restaurant. The Antelope is amazing
