Cool space in downtown Greenville. Busy Friday night, but got great service. I had the Short Ribs, which basically fell apart with my fork. The muscles were very tasty too!!

Excellent food and service. The crab cakes were excellent, lots of crabmeat as it should be. Shrimp and Grits were the best. We were seated upstairs and it was a very comfortable, pleasant atmosphere and not seated on top of the next table. Excellent coffee and good choices for dessert.

Our family had the Thanksgiving meal at Soby's this year. We were seated upstairs, and were delighted to find that they had a complete buffet there, so we didn't have to go down to the first level to stand in line. The food was first-rate. My only complaint was that the gravy should have been placed at the end of... More

This restaurant was just across the way from the Westin hotel. Modern establishment. Authentic southern menu. Prompt service. Nice wait staff. Reasonably good selection of local craft beers. Salmon was excellent.

My wife and I chose Sobys to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We made reservations, but arrived early so we enjoyed a couple of cocktails at the high top tables in the bar area...quite noisy, but it is a bar. Later we made our way to our table. The noise level was still up there, but the restaurant was practically full.... More

I had brunch here on a Sunday, and it was lovely. A good variety in the buffet, and the best shrimp and grits I think I've ever had.

We had Thanksgiving dinner at Soby's tonight and have to say that it was an amazing experience. We (table for six) were the last table seated on an extremely busy day, and after superb cocktails (they can make fantastic Negronis), they ran short on one or two buffet items. Just let us say that the manager and server both made... More

We visited on the night of a Garth Brooks concert -- and it was insanely crowded. The staff was working diligently in getting those who were attending out quickly -- this resulted in our meal taking a lot longer than it should have. That being said -- the manager was very diligent in making sure we were taken care of,... More

A meal at Soby's is a must if you're visiting our wonderful city. It's a cozy, warm and inviting atmosphere where the most pleasant people work to make sure your experience is top-notch. The kitchen is open so guests can see everything that's going on and if you sit upstairs, you get a bird's eye view of it. It's really... More
