Restaurant Review Wednesday – Roost In Greenville, South Carolina

by Roni

Shredded duck tacos

Have you ever gone to a restaurant and after your meal is over you are looking around trying to figure out where all the food went? That’s what happened when I went to Roost in Greenville, South Carolina.  Greenville is 100 miles from Charlotte and well worth the hour and a half drive.  I love it when restaurants have super fresh ingredients, and it makes me love a restaurant even more when they use local farmers. Roost does both and the result is an exquisite tasting experience. You can really taste the difference when a restaurant cares about the food they put on your plate, don’t you think?


Beet and goat cheese salad

Roost is right next to the Hyatt Regency and if you order room service, you will be choosing from the room service menu provided by Roost. Oh, and do you need to follow a gluten free diet? No problem, they will happily accommodate you.


Meatloaf sandwich. That’s mashed potatoes on top

Back to the food. Seriously, as I was sitting there eating I was so happy that these luscious flavors were in my mouth but then sad at the same time because my food was disappearing faster than I wanted.


Shrimp and chorizo flatbread

If you find yourself staying at The Hyatt or walking down North Main Street and you need a place to eat, please stop at Roost. Your taste buds will thank you.

All of these look delicious but my mouth waters for meatloaf any day of the week. I think I’ll have a stab at the duck tacos as well. Yes ma’am.

That food looks so yummy! I ain’t ever heard of no shredded duck tacos but now I want!

I didn’t know shredded duck tacos existed either, they were so good!

I’ve never been to Greenville but I think it may be time for a little trip 🙂 All of those dishes look delicious! And those shredded duck tacos look great. I’ve only had duck once & I think it was from a Chinese restauraunt. I’d be curious to try it again in another form. Also, I can only imagine how fresh their food tastes!

Now I’m hungry 🙁

I wish is wasn’t 100 miles away because I would be there right now! You won’t be disappointed if you go!
