Keeping up with the Lake Greenwood real estate market means not only knowing the Greenwood area but it also means knowing the surrounding areas as well. Lake Greenwood spans 3 different counties. In my opinion one of the best reasons to live at the lower end of the lake other than the magnificent views, naturesque surroundings and deep water is being within a SHORT drive to 3 surrounding historic towns, each with its own personality.
Yesterday I visted Newberry to research a property. Some people may have visited the Newberry Opera House but that's just one of this towns attractions. While I was there I decided to have lunch at a little place that could be easily overlooked. The Grille On Main, which was once a pharmacy in the "old days" located on Main Street (bet you already figured that out) was such a great last minute stop. I had to park a ways away from the Grille and as I was walking up the street checking out the little specialty shops I got the feeling of a quaint, friendly "Mayberry-ish" town. In today's world that is a good feeling even if it's only for a few minutes.
When I walked in the Grille On Main I was was greeted by friendly servers who actually took the time to make me feel welcome. My server was terrific and ready to take my order almost before I got seated. I decided on the Baked Potato Soup and Pimento Cheese sandwich. Both were absolutely DELICIOUS and homemade goodness filled every bite!
The next time you find yourself looking at real estate in Greenwood, SC, especially on the lake near the dam, remember you're only a short drive from Newberry. I hope you make the time to visit Newberry and wander the downtown area for a few minutes. You'll find numerous antique shops in a quaint little town rich in history. If you do happen to find yourself in Newberry make sure to visit The Grille On Main and since it's the perfect time of year for soup....try the Baked Potato soup. You'll love it!
