Love dining at Soby's. The food is always creative and delicious and the service is friendly. The wine list is a bit overwhelming but our servers have always been happy to help us narrow down our selection. Using the iPad as a wine list is certainly an innovative way to do it! Soby's is in a great location downtown and... More

For my birthday, I decided to go for a special brunch. Having been to Soby's brunch before, I didn't bother checking around, I just made a reservation. The great thing about the brunch here is that every single item they put out is excellent. I went with my son and we pretty much tried all the same foods. We shared... More

Went here on a recommendation from our B&B host. A great restaurant with memorable food. Great blue cheese wedge. Lively crowd very busy. Good food abounds. Can't miss here.

I just love this restaurant, I have eaten there with family and friends several times and the food has always been delicious. I have also celebrated New Years eve at Soby's for the last two years and both times were perfect, the food, the wine, the service top class. The atmosphere is always fun, the decor warm and inviting. I... More

One of the best restaurants in which I have ever eaten. We celebrated our move to Greenville by dining outside in April 2013 and I try to eat lunch here when the weather if good. Dining al fresco on Main Street at Soby's is one the things I love about living in Greenville.

This is a great place for friends, couples, entertaining, and lunch. The atmosphere is really nice. The food is high quality and so is the service. Upscale local food with fresh ingredients.

Wife and I ate here on a recent trip to Greenville. Made a reservation through Open Table and was seating quickly. Service and atmosphere was great. We shared the calamari app that had a great sauce on it, but was somewhat "chewy." I had the grouper that was on special, and wasn't that impressed. Wife had the crabcakes, which she... More

We dined at Soby's and found the food outstanding, service was superb and the ambiance perfect for a very nice couples dinner. Everything was outstanding and we even reserved the upstairs loft for a small family reunion celebration. The staff a Soby's always went overboard to ensure the perfect event. Angela was the perfect party coordinator and Annie could not... More
