The Silo, a new eatery at RJ Rockers in downtown Spartanburg, has completed the addition of a brunch menu to its offering.

In January, RJ Rockers announced Malcolm and Lexie Garrison, owners of Spartanburg’s former HenHouse Brunch restaurant, planned to shutter their store in order to join the Silo.

The Garrisons have developed a tasty lineup of dishes to complement the Silo’s dinner offering.

Brunch will be served from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, with dinner available afterward until 10 p.m.

The Silo’s chef Clay McDonough is responsible for the dinner service.

“Lexie and Malcolm are restaurant industry veterans with tremendous talent,” McDonough said in a statement. “They’re also my friends. Their ideas marry so well with mine, and I look forward to sprinkling a little brewery flair into their amazing food.”

The menu includes beignets; brunch fries smothered with ranch dressing, cheddar cheese, bacon, and green onion; and a “Big A#!” cinnamon roll, which can easily feed four people.

Entrée items — including the OMG BLT, a play on a classic BLT with bacon, tomato, fried egg, sunflower sprouts, onion jam, and mayo on a homemade croissant, and The Benny, a spin on traditional eggs Benedict served three different ways — are priced between $10.16 and $12.04.

Vegan and gluten-free options are available.

Diners can also enjoy drink specials and craft beer during the brunch service.

“We’re excited about the creative opportunity that this space provides, and about how we can translate that into brunch,” Lexie Garrison said in a statement. “The opportunity to join The Silo at RJ Rockers came together naturally, and this decision allows us to better serve our loyal customers.”

John Bauknight, owner of RJ Rockers, which is headquartered at 226 A W. Main St. in downtown Spartanburg, said customers had been asking for a brunch service since before the Silo opened its doors. He said the brewery is glad to give those customers “one more thing to love about our place.”

“You get this feeling in downtown Spartanburg that everyone wants the same thing — more options without excessive growth,” Malcolm Garrison said. “What’s happening in Spartanburg is unique. The heart and soul behind its recent growth is something we really love. We’re very happy to continue to be part of this community.”
