Soby's New South Cuisine is a blend of contemporary cuisine infused with traditional southern ingredients. The restaurant opened in 1997 and is housed in the warm environment of a renovated, century-old building and has a mezzanine level that can accommodate large parties ordering a la carte. Starting with fresh, seasonal ingredients, our chefs transform Southern favorites into something comfortable and fresh. The wine list is a consistent winner of Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast awards. Signature dishes include Barbecue Shrimp and Grits, Fried Green Tomatoes with Jalapeno Pimento Cheese, and Crab Cakes Remoulade.

Brunch buffet is superb!

So much variety for Sunday brunch, they have everything from your breakfast essentials to more eclectic dishes such as shrimp & grits and beet & arugala salad. You will not leave unsatisfied!

My friends and I went to Soby's the other night to take advantage of the Foodie Fast. I had made reservations a few weeks prior because I knew we were going on one of the last days of the Foodie Fest and figured it would be busy. Well we were right! Our reservations were at 7:30 and the place was... More

Loved every item... A bit pricey, but worth it... The loft is a great place for a corporate dinner and to stay should you need a crash pad...

Came here for the first time with my boyfriend on a day trip to Greenville. The food was amazing! I had the crab cakes and my boyfriend was talked into the short ribs by the server. I had a bite of his and was ALMOST jealous that I didn't get it, but the crab cakes were fantastic. Our server, Ivey... More

This is one of the restaurants on our cycle of places to eat at in downtown Greenville. Nice atmosphere and good service. Enough variety in the menu to satisfy what ever you're in the mood for.

Anytime we dont feel like trying one of the many new restaurants in Greenville, we end up at Soby's. All three courses are always good. My wife and I would come for the fried green tomatoes and pimento cheese even if there was nothing else on the menu. Duck, porck, shrimp and grits are all excellent and cannot go wrong... More

One of our all time favorites! Perfect for a date night or an evening to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. The food is always exciting and delicious. Love the crab cakes every time!
