Love the atmosphere, very casual but interesting. Each time I visit the service and food is excellent. Love the crab cakes and whatever seafood special they have that day.

This is our 'go to' restaurant when we go to the Peace Center. The food is mainly Southern style with a twist and is delicious. Try it, you'll like it.

After moving to the south I have tried many southern dishes. Shrimp and grits has become a favorite. I have tried it in many restaurants and Soby's is the best I have had. The wait staff are polite and go out of their way to take care of the customers.

Continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Greenville! Crab cakes are amazing and full of crab and not just bread. Great atmosphere! Can't wait to come back!

Waiter kept telling us our food was coming straight out, it did not. We ordered New England Clam Chowder and it was good, would have been much better hot or even warm! Brussel Spouts with ham was good, but cold. Clams came out cold also. Salad was average. Recommend sitting inside and not dining outside. This dinner for four was... More

My husband and I live in the area and had our wedding celebration at Soby's. We experienced fantastic food, deserts, selected wines along with excellent service from very knowledgeable and very friendly waiters. Highly recommendable!

.....the service was harried and unexpectedly indifferent. We could tell something was askew as waiters were running and explaining. It was a Sunday night. Management was...where? However, the food was excellant!

We ate here on a Sunday night during restaurant week. Everybody's food was excellent, but the service was disjointed at best. We sat upstairs which was nice and quiet. The venison, filet mignon, crab cakes and fried chicken were all great.

We had a business dinner for 5 and everyone's meal was very good. Shrimp and Grits were very good flavor while not being spicy. She crab soup and fried green tomatoes appetizers were very good as well. We sat upstairs and though we had a table in the middle of the room it was a comfortable evening with good service.

Went here for a family dinner. Had the filet. The steak itself was good. Cooked as requested. But they brought out the wrong sides. Every one else's dinner was correct so I assume it was just an oversight. But at a restaurant such as this I expected better service. Great wine selection. Neat building. Expect a wait on most nights.
