It’s not really fair to review a new restaurant until they’ve been open a month or so, but I wanted to tell you about Greenville, SC’s latest offering – Nose Dive.
PIC and I went “down the mountain” this past Tuesday, February 8th, to take advantage of mid-50’s temperatures in Greenville. We planned on walking Main Street, Riverplace and Falls Park, lunching at Nose Dive. If you have trouble viewing the video below, click here.

This was their second day open to the public, following a soft opening for “friends” over the weekend. Billed as a “gastropub”, the menu offered a good mix. Everything we ordered was very tasty.
PIC had Chef Joey’s Corned Beef ($8):
Prince Edward Island Mussels in Smokey Tomato Broth at $6.00 was my choice. You can also have the mussels in Lemongrass and Chili. Any way you get the mussels, they’re served with crusty bread.
At our server’s suggestion, I tried the Deep Dish Apple Pie ($5), perfectly accompanied by Highland Oatmeal Porter Ice Cream. So, I think Nose Dive will be added to my “places to go for dessert” list.
Here’s a shot of the downstairs. Notice the noise reducingÂ panelsÂ on the ceiling:
We loved it that they kept the vintage floor. Just don’t see floors like this much anymore:
And now I’m going to give you a tip. UPSTAIRS is the place to be at Nose Dive. They don’t seat up there during lunch, but for dinner – a must in my book!
