Restaurant Week Is Back For A Second Time in 2021 for The Upstate of South Carolina

Posted on | No Comments

Once a year, the stars align and you have a unique opportuntiy at local restaurants to try something new! This year, we get a bonus Restaurant week in August, from the 5th – 15th, 2021!
There are over two dozen restaurants participating this fall and we’re here to help you make the most of this unique opportunity.

If you are looking for more ways to support local restaurants – You can get to know an Upstate restaurant a little better with our Weekly Restaurant Feature, or find a place to Dine Outdoors In The Upstate right here with Kidding Around.

Making The Most Of Restaurant Week In Spartanburg, SC

Restaurant week is a great opportunity to check out a local spot that is new or an established one you’ve been meaning to try. To help you make the most of Restaurant Week in Greenville, we have a few tips to help diners.

  • Depending on where you want to dine during restaurant week, you may need to plan ahead. Several of the restaurants accept reservations, and we suggest you take advantage of that especially during a special event like this. A table at places like CAMP in Greenville are already in high demand and the lure of a specially priced prix-fixe menu will just make it harder to get seated, so calling and reserving a table now will help.
  • Take advantage of locations that offer a lunch special. Oftentimes these are the same menu items that are part of the dinner restaurant week offer, just at a lower price.
  • Consider the take-out option. A new option to the first Restaurant Week of 2021 back in January was the inclusion of a take-out. This can make it easier for parents to try something from a new spot, without having to get a babysitter, or worry about the kid’s menu at a location.
