This is not a white table cloth experience, but instead, it is a very good combination of food, service, drinks, and value, in a more relaxed atmosphere. The atmosphere is a tad on the dark side, with many small square tables (for two) which can be easily pushed together for as many guests as necessary. - You likely get the... More

Hesitant at first to try some of the unique menu offerings, I can wholeheartedly say, it was one of the most delicious meals ever! Start with a cocktail at the small bar. The wonderful creativity begins there and carries through to a meal that will be memorable. Pricey,but, the unusual pairings make it worth every penny.

Restaurant Week should have been an opportunity to put your best foot forward... AG stumbled. Too few options at too high price in too loud an environment with slow/inattentive service.

I have eaten in a lot of great restaurants in my life, but this one ranks as one of the best meals I have ever eaten. Deep Fried Deviled Egg, Mussels, Trout with Green Tomato Chow Chow and Goat Cheese Cheese Cake. You need a reservation, but so worth it. If you are visiting Greenville, this should be your first...

We've eaten there before and had a positive experience, but not particularly memorable. We also enjoyed drinks and small plates at the bar a number of times in the past. In every case, the wait and bar staff seemed competent but also standoffish. For our most recent visit the staff was both incompetent and inattentive. We were a party of... More

The menu offers more than the usual plays on the usual South Carolina standards so American Grocery will allow an escape from the humdrum shrimp and grits, trout etc, etc. Service is excellent and staff have always been on form. Atmosphere is always pleasant and welcoming as is the decor. There are numerous interesting and inventive items on the menu... More

Ive been to AGR a few times and have never had a bad experience. I tried duck liver for the first time along with the most tender rabbit. Our server Justin was surprisingly knowledgeable on wines and beer and helped our table pair the right one with our meal. I really love this place, never a bad experience.

I went to American Grocery with friends for dinner and had octopus for starters. Octopus was charred. Then chicken à la provençale was my entrée. It looked good, however the dish tasted bland (seasoning and vegetable quality). Eggplant pieces were charred again. Not sure if we went on a bad day, my friends were not impressed either by what they... More

Great restaurant! Went with family and there were 5 of us, all adults. I love their whiskey sours so much we actually went back the next night just to have a couple of them again at the bar. Solid selection of food, but may not be for everyone. My wife had beef tongue which is fabulous. My sister had the... More

We thought restaurant week would be a good time to try this restaurant. We went for the 3 course tasting menu with wine. The waiter warned us that this was a tasting menu. How correct he was. This is the first restaurant where I ate everything served and left hungry. The wine flights were very small but worse were served... More
