High Cotton is Lowcountry born, yet right at home in Greenville. Like the time-honored phrase it is high spirited and livin’ large. Located in beautiful Falls Park with scenic views of the Reedy River, High Cotton is an inviting place to relax and enjoy hospitality at its best. The cuisine is unabashedly American, familiar and robust featuring meats, game and fresh fish – no confetti on the plates or in the descriptions. Familiar, irresistible desserts. Whether you come alone or with a group, to dine or enjoy a burger at the bar, High Cotton exudes that magical feeling of comfortable abundance. Like Bess said, “…the fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high.” Life is good even if it’s not always fair. And after a great piece of perfectly cooked meat or fish and a glass of wine, it begins to look even better.
