A group of businessmen from Houston wound up at The Strip Club 104 last week and complimented Executive Chef / Owner Jason Clark on one of the best-prepared steak dinners and customer service they have enjoyed.

“I don’t know what that group was here for and how they selected us,” Clark said. “It never ceases to amaze me the people who come into our restaurants for the first time and say they hadn’t heard of Greer.”

Clark hits the visitors right in the gut with his crafted menu and bar selections.

BIN112 (112 Trade Street) and The Strip Club 104 (104 East Poinsett Street) have repeated as two of the top 10 Best Overall Restaurants in greater Greenville by OpenTable. Translated, it means two restaurants, separated by less than a small city block, owned by the same person, is a food destination that virtually sits on the borders of Greenville and Spartanburg counties.

“Honestly, the way do we do business is the customer should expect excellent food and service,” Clark said. “I think we do that.”

Lines outside The Strip Club 104 for Friday lunch – the only day opened for lunch – are legendary. "It's insane," said a customer. "Honestly, to see a line outside a restaurant any day only happens in big cities. And they feature one item, burgers. I've never seen anything like this." 

Clark ages his own beef and his meticulous kitchens are standards of the industry. He cuts his own ice cubes for exactness for drinks served.

Clark said some of his accomplished staff are commended for the continued public support of the restaurants.

“This is about the staff and trying to keep good staff,” Clark said. Jeff Smith, Emily Fulktineer and Christina Dancy manage the front of the house and Chad Avery and Craig Dunbar bring stability to the back.

“I’m real proud of what we have done and I’m always in awe we do as well as we do in Greer,” Clark said. “People need to realize Greer is growing and there’s a lot happening between Wade Hampton Boulevard and I-85. These businesses are not going to stop. We’re going to keep growing.”

• BIN112 and The Strip Club 104 will be closed Thanksgiving Day and lunch Friday.
