Spending a day or two in Greenville, SC and need to know where to delight your taste buds? I’ve got you covered! Stay away from the mess that is Woodruff Road and instead opt for the beautiful downtown and surrounding areas that have a ton of mouth-watering restaurants to choose from! In between meals, take a stroll through Falls Park and walk across the iconic Liberty Bridge. Visit the Mast General Store and pick up some souvenirs and candy. Wanting to be outdoors in this perfect fall weather? Rent a bike in downtown and ride on the Swamp Rabbit Trail. With so much to do, see, and eat, travelers can easily spend an entire weekend in the award-winning city of Greenville, South Carolina. Below are three restaurants in Greenville that are a must try for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Biscuit Head

Biscuit the size of a cat head? Yeah, they’re THAT enormous! And amazing. Biscuit Head, located at 823 S Church in Greenville, SC, is known for their massive biscuits and plethora of delicious gravies, butters, jams, and jellies. Just walk in, order at the counter, and grab a seat in their funky and eclectic space. If you tip the cashier, you may even get a “meow!”

My personal favorite is the Full Breakfast (pictured above) which includes a biscuit, two eggs cooked your way, and two sides. I recommend the moon fries! Biscuit Head is open Monday through Friday 7:00 am to 2:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. During peak hours (11:30 am-12:30 pm), you may have to wait in line. However, do not let that deter you. The line moves fairly quickly, and it is definitely worth the wait! Click here for the menu.

Oakblue Kitchen

Country home cooking with a twist! Oakblue Kitchen is one of the newest restaurants in downtown Greenville located right next door to Mast General. Opened only about a month ago, Oakblue offers Southern and Korean barbeque as well as a craft beer, wine, and cocktails. You cannot go wrong with the Smokehouse Nachos or any of their other delicious sandwiches or plates. Oakblue Kitchen is open Tuesday through Saturday 11:00 am to 10:00 pm and Sunday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. To view the menu, click here.
