We had dinner here recently following a regional legal competition I judged. Reservations are a must! I made a reservation online a week prior and still could only get a table at 8:30 on a Saturday. We both started off with the lobster bisque. It was excellent. I had the venison and my friend had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin.... More

Excellent atmosphere, wine list, service from making reservations to closing the place down. Many thanks to Brione and our complements to the chef for a lovely dinner celebration for my husband's birthday.

Soby's has been our hometown favorite for years, so much so that we ate here weekly to satisfy my cravings before our daughter was born. We are used to excellent valet and table service at dinner time in addition to top notch dishes. However, today we booked a late brunch at 1:30 and while the food lived up to our... More

We chose this restaurant because of all the excellent TripAdvisor comments, but were very underwhelmed. The atmosphere is EXCELLENT, the wait staff were EXCELLENT, but the food -- which is what we came for -- was just "okay." Being from the South, we were all set for being wowed by Shrimp & Grits, Crab Soup, and Fried Green Tomatoes. And... More

Service is excellent. Food is wonderful. Great selection to chose from. We had a very large group with three small children, as well. All went smoothly and everyone had just what they wanted to eat.

If you enjoy Sunday brunch, this is a place on Main Street in downtown Greenville that is worth experiencing because it's done the right way: Bloody Mary & Mimosa custom menu; Chef's pastry including bagels, croissants & danish; fruits & salads; a variety of hot & cold buffet items; omlette/waffle/french toast station; roast beef carving station; and a wonderful desert...

Their tasty menu isn't the only reason to make this a stop on your visit to Greenville. This former shoe store was transformed in the early days of Downtown revitalization. Soby's, the flagship, of a few of the Table 301 establishments, has stayed true to their southern roots. The veggies are a fav. The service good. The setting is hip.... More

Once again Soby's did not disappoint. The crab cakes, filet, and scallops were enjoyed by our party. The waitress was exceptional and fun.
