With more than 50 Greenville-area restaurants participating in South Carolina Lodging and Restaurant Association’s Restaurant Week from Aug. 8-18, there’s something for everyone who wants a deal on dinner.

Each restaurant will offer a special prix fixe menu with multiple options at a price lower than typical cost. Many of the menus are already available for viewing on To help you strategize your plan of culinary attack over the biannual 11-day event, we’ve grouped them into categories based on cuisine, atmosphere, and target diners, and linked to the menus that are online.

Happy dining, on the cheap!

Date night

The right way to do date night during restaurant week is for both of you to order different options from the menu and share, giving you up to eight dishes to try. You can’t beat the price for that amount of food. Try these restaurants for a more intimate dinner.

Sometimes the kids want to get out of the house for dinner, too. While most of the participating restaurants welcome families, these in particular offer a relaxed atmosphere and/or gaming options.
