Simpsonville, SC: The Vaughn’s Food Hall Literally Has Everything You Need for a Fantastic Family Night Out

Posted on |

Vaughn’s Food Hall  in Simpsonville, SC is a fantastic food hall and entertainment venue that literally has everything you need for a really fun, family night out (or date night!). We checked it out and have all the details on how to make Vaughn’s your family’s new go-to spot. 

Located in downtown Simpsonville, SC, Vaughn’s Food Hall (previously the Warehouse at Vaughn’s) could not be more perfect. Honestly. There are multiple, delicious restaurants, a huge outdoor space with tables, a sand pit, and big area to play ball, nightly entertainment, and an easy, laid-back vibe that is ideal for relaxing with your family. 

I’m going to go old school here and dare you to go and not want to go back the next week, and the week after that, and the week after that. It’s that good. 

Vaughn’s Food Hall is a 2024 KABOOM Awards Winner for the Top 5 Date Night Spots in Greenville, SC.

About Vaughn’s Food Hall 

Vaughn’s Food Hall is pretty much like the name suggests except cooler. The food hall is inside a big warehouse and consists of multiple restaurants and bars that have nearly any type of food you’re in the mood for. 

Want pizza? Get some Humble Pie. Want a burger? Get a smash burger from Bourbon St. Burgers. Want fried cheese curds, a Patty Melt, or Loaded Nachos? Then the Grub Box is your spot. In the mood for a cold, craft beer? Try any number of them at the Taphouse. Or maybe you just want dessert? Yogi’s Cups & Cones is where it’s at.

The restaurants at Vaughn’s Food Hall are The TapHouse, Grub Box, Humble Pie Co., Tacos & Bla Bla Bla, Bourbon St. Burgers, Anchor Raw Bar, Yogi’s Cups & Cones, the Peanut Co., and Outlawed Ramen.

After dinner, head over to the Upstate Pinball Museum & Arcade and play all the games you want for just $10/person. No coins are required. You could easily spend a few hours here. 

The Outdoor Space & Entertainment at Vaughn’s 

I love a good place where you can sit outside and where there is space for kids to get their energy out before and after dinner. That’s exactly what you find at Vaughn’s. The backyard has lots of tables with umbrellas that overlook a small stage and big, grassy area. That part literally looks like a backyard. It’s awesome. 

There’s a small sand pit, soccer balls, a plastic baseball bat, and some other soft toys. My girls decided to make up a new game that combined baseball with a big, soft die that they used instead of a baseball. It was awesome and we saw other kids pick it up after we started eating. They are obviously trendsetters.

Ordering is the Easiest Thing Ever

Vaughn’s was recently acquired by new owners, hence the new name. One of the changes they made was the ordering system. You use your phone to scan the QR codes throughout the Food Hall and on the outdoor tables, which pull up the menus on your phone. You start a tab and then just order everything – beer, wine, appetizers, entrees – right from your phone. You can even share your tab with other people (think responsible teens or for a party) to make payment easier. 

Once you submit your order, you’ll get a text message confirming your order and then you’ll get text messages when the different parts of your order are done.

Taphouse, Fried Cheese Curds, Grub Box at Vaughn’s

So, for example, I ordered a salad, fried cheese curds, and nachos from the Grub Box, a beer from the Taphouse, and a kids’ meal from Bourbon St. Burgers all on my phone. Everything came out pretty fast and I only had to make a couple of trips inside to pick up my orders, which were right on the counter at the restaurant.

It’s super easy and way, way better than waiting in line at each place, especially if everyone in your family wants to eat and drink at different restaurants. Waiting in line would take forever. But you don’t have to with this new system! 

The ordering system currently works for all the restaurants within the Food Hall itself (a couple are outside but still part of the Food Hall), which are the TapHouse, Grub Box, Humble Pie Co., Bourbon St. Burgers, Anchor Raw Bar, and Yogi’s Cups & Cones.

There’s a water station right near The Grub Box as well, if you only want water and not any special drinks. 

Kids Eat Free on Thursdays

While I already mentioned this earlier, in case you missed it, Kids Eat Free on Thursdays with a paid adult meal. If everything you’ve already read isn’t reason enough to go to the Warehouse at Vaughn’s, let this be it.
