Watch the Sunset from UP on the Roof in Greenville, SC

On our rooftop, you can gaze out over the city skyline around you, the Reedy River immediately below, and the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. Whether you dine al fresco or inside, you’ll still enjoy sunset views thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows! And once the sun goes down, we have several fire pits to keep you warm.
Take in Sunset Views from UP on the Roof in Anderson, SC
No other restaurant in Anderson, SC gives you a better view of UPstate scenery than UP on the Roof! From our seventh-story perch at the top of the Market Street Parking Garage, you’ll have a front-row seat for sunset. Watch in awe as the sky over quaint downtown Anderson and the surrounding tree line turns pink and orange. If you sit outside and get a bit chilly when twilight takes over, snag a seat on a sofa next to one of our fire pits.
Savor a Sophisticated Sunset Dining Experience
No matter which UP on the Roof restaurant you choose for your sunset viewing, you’ll enjoy the same innovative menu. Every season, our chef creates unique, comfort-led dishes using the freshest locally sourced ingredients available in South Carolina.
For instance, start your meal with the I Dip, You Dip, We Dip trio as the sun dips out of view. Good luck choosing just one favorite between the black bean and corn salsa, sunflower seed hummus, and pimento cheese!
As for the main entrée, you have plenty of options from the farm, ranch, and sea. You’ll certainly love our Lowcountry style crab cakes served with a zesty remoulade sauce. Other crowd favorites include our seasonal risotto and pork ribs in a homemade barbecue sauce—just to name a few.
