I remember when that building on Congaree was the Grandma's Saloon and Deli chain out of Minnesota originally in the 90's and Chiefs was located in the Orchard Park area across from Stax Omega.

That seems really odd.

I noticed the electronic sign next to 385 says it is now closed for over a week now at least i would say.

I wonder if all the openings of other brewery style restaurants stole some of their thunder. How many of those does a small city the size of Greenville need?

These establishments serve a large population of over 500,000 people.

Chiefs was one of the oldest establishments of its type.. Sometimes the new and fancy wins out over the old and dated.. Not saying that's the case and I know Chiefs building was relatively new, at least to them.. But again.. People are saying it was due to the person who bought it not being able to get a liquor license. That'll get a place like that closed real quick, if they can't serve alcohol.


My understanding is that this was only the Greenville location as well. Spartanburg unaffected.

Yep! Was it the Crustacean Shorehouse or something like that before Grandmas ?

It's not that "new and fancy" wins out over the older, it's that people take notice when the former quality (both food and service wise) declines to the point that pretty much any option will be better. We used to go to Chiefs across from Stax. The quality of food was good, the service was good. I went to the "new" location on Congaree once and said I was done. My parents went about 3 times, I think my brother and his wife made it 5 times. Possibly because we aren't big drinkers, I think we noped out of Chiefs faster than others we knew who were putting up with the sliding service and quality of food because it was a place to hang out and drink.

The location in Anderson that closed around 2012 and lasted for only a couple of years crashed and burned for the same reason - horrible service, bad food.

I also remember when we moved to greenville Chiefs got a horrible food score by the health department. So we never ate there.
