Saskatoon Steaks, Fish and Wild Game

After years of talking about it, we finally made it to Saskatoon for Chris’s birthday. The name says it all. Think hunting lodge with lofty ceilings and wood as far as the eye can see. There was even a wooden grizzly bear at the entrance and a fireplace in the foyer. This place is the…

The Lazy Goat

Now that we are in our eighth year of marriage, we are running out of new spots to try for major holidays. There is a good bit of turnover in the #yeahTHATgreeenville restaurant scene so there are always new places to try but not places on the anniversary/birthday/Valentine’s Day level. In 2022, Valentine’s Day was…

Warehouse at Vaughns (Simpsonville, SC)

Mall food courts are dying out but the food hall concept is on the rise. There are several new developments in the works in the Upstate. Gather GVL in downtown Greenville is already a popular spot. Both Easley and Greer have food halls, The Silos and Cartwright Food Hall, coming soon.

Rocky’s Hot Chicken

This popular spot opened in Greenville, South Carolina, within the last year or so. When it first opened the lines were incredibly long and out of the building. One Friday, we decided we had plenty of time to wait so we made our way to Rocky’s. It has a decent-sized parking lot across the street…

The Dive on Augusta Street

This eatery is located next to Two Rooms, a home decor shop I occasionally like to peruse on the weekends. We were starving so we decided to take a chance since it was close. It lives up to its characterization as a dive. The interior is fairly small though there are a few full-size wooden…

Rick Erwin’s Nantucket

It was Valentine’s Day and Chris had made reservations at the last Rick Erwin’s restaurant we had not tried. I loved Rick Erwin’s Level 10 in Spartanburg. Anyway, back to Nantucket…The upscale seafood restaurant is located on the first floor of a hotel overlooking the area where a temporary ice skating rink is set up…

Eating Our Way Through Greenville: White Duck Taco

Taco shops are popping up all over Greenville. Over the holidays, my sisters were visiting from Arizona and brought us a few tacos from this spot. We immediately added it to our “must try” list. White Duck Taco Shop has two locations-one in Hampton Station and one near Haywood Mall. We decided to check out…

Valentine’s Day Recommendations

It’s Valentine’s Day weekend and you are just now trying to find someplace to eat. Since eating is kind of our thing, here are a few recommendations. Every couple is different so think about whether you’re more of a table cloth person or a portion size person. Do you favor ambiance or good food? You…

Husk: BBQ

The Story It was a rainy, cold New Year’s Day and the family was out of town. Obviously, I wasn’t cooking anything (holiday = break) so Chris suggested we check out Husk: Smokin BBQ. It was previously a regular Husk eatery based off of the original Husk venture in Charleston, South Carolina. We’ve had great…
