A couple of obstacles must be overcome to enjoy this family-owned steak house north of Greenville and just south of Furman University. Not the least of which is just finding it. Your GPS will get you to the general vicinity, but just that. Although its address is Poinsett Highway, it actually sits a half block east of Poinsett up on a hill on Hillandale Road. You see, it’s in a building that’s been there nearly a century. When built, its property line was on Poinsett Highway. A lot changed in 100 years, but not the address.

DSCF2645On busy nights, you may find yourself parking in the lower lot that’s about half a city block beyond the main entrance on Hillandale Road. That’s okay; the short walk up the hill will help build up an appetite for the sumptuous dining experience that awaits you.

Come a little early and enjoy a drink in what is arguably the quaintest bar in Greenville. You may have to squeeze in, but the friendly service and quirky décor conspire to deliver a warm, convivial experience. Saturday’s 3-to-6 p.m. happy hour transforms this space into “Antwon’s Hideaway.”

The huge fireplace in the upper bar area is only one of several sprinkled around this sprawling place. It’s much larger inside than it looks from the outside. Its network of larger and smaller rooms make it a popular destination for business and special-occasion dinners.

No surprise that the menu focuses on red meat: Filet’s, Ribeyes, T-bones and New York Strips are aged and grilled to perfection. And, you’ll be hard pressed to find better prime rib in the Upstate. There is also pork tenderloin, chicken and a fish catch of the day.

Unlimited trips to the extensive salad bar and a side dish are both included in the price of the entree.S0182781

Roughly a 10- to 15-minute drive from downtown’s Main Street, The Peddler is unlike any place else in Greenville.
