A food and drink tour of Bon Secours Wellness Arena

As hot dog and soft pretzel connoisseurs, we looked to branch out on our recent visit to Bon Secours Wellness Arena. From barbecue to craft cocktails and buffalo chicken totchos, here’s what we tried.

POV: It’s Friday night and your favorite artist is taking over Bon Secours Wellness Arena for their latest tour. You plan a night out with your best friends, but instead of getting a bite to eat before you arrive, you decide to eat at the arena. Thanks to this guide to eating and drinking at The Well, you know exactly what you’re getting for dinner.

Danielle here. I went to the Thomas Rhett concert on a mission to experience the best of the food and beverage offerings at Bon Secours Wellness Arena. While a hot dog, pretzel, and lite beer can hit the spot, I branched out from my usual arena food, and boy was I surprised at some of the bites I enjoyed.

Here’s everything I tried.

Craft cocktails

In addition to craft beer and wine offerings around the arena, you’ll find liquor carts and stands mixing your favorite drinks, plus specialty cocktails — different events call for different cocktails, crafted in-house by The Well’s food and beverage team.

  • The Sweet + Sassy Margarita | For Thomas Rhett, I sipped on this margarita made with Dos Primos Tequila (Thomas Rhett’s celebrity liquor brand), pineapple juice, triple sec, local blackberries, Hawaiian pineapple, and of course, a Tajin rim.
  • Thomas Rhett’s Ranch Water | This show also featured ranch water made with Dos Primos + Topo Chico, exclusive to VIP’s in the Wicked Weed Green Room Lounge.
  • The Jim Peach Lemonade | All country music shows offer a cocktail featuring Jim Beam Peach and Dole lemonade.

Carolina Smoke Barbecue

With my drink in hand, we started our lap around the arena. First up, a taste of barbecue that can go toe-to-toe with your favorite Greenville barbecue joint. Choose from 12-hour smoked angus beef brisket or pork rib, or the twice-rubbed pulled pork butt. Don’t forget the scratch-made sides — I couldn’t get enough of the mac and cheese.

Piedmont Grill

Chances are you’ve visited this grab-and-go spot during a Swamp Rabbits Game or event at The Well. It’s the busiest booth with favorites like hot dogs, pretzels, and popcorn. Before you grab your usual go-to, consider a taste of the Fried Green Tomato and Pimento Cheese burger.

Reedy River Roost

It’s hard to pick a favorite at The Well, but I would say the Reedy River Roost has the most creative menu offerings in the arena. Feast on buffalo chicken totchos, chicken and waffles, and bird dogs (read: chicken tenders prepared in a hot dog bun and topped).

There was only so much room in my stomach on this taste tour, so I have a feeling I’ll be adding to this article each time I visit Bon Secours Wellness Arena. I can’t wait to try the gelato doughnut sandwiches. What else do I need to experience? Share your favorite.
