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.

Food was delicious and different than other findings in the area. Great atmosphere no matter where you were seated (outside, upstairs, downstairs.) We enjoyed the rabbit and filet mignon- both cooked and seasoned deliciously. The sides complimented the dishes perfectly. Even the biscuits were superb and unique. We highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for an enjoyable evening out!

Went to Soby's for dinner the week before valentines' day. Daughter requested a kids' filet mignon which they provided with no difficulty. Food was fantastic, service great. Total experience worth repeating.

Wife had the Filet which was as good as Rick Erwins but a little less expensive. The braised short rib and mashed potatoes were awesome. Our friends loved what they had. Dessert was was really hood as well.

The staff at The Loft at Soby's created a refreshing and casual atmosphere for a client appreciation and celebration for my wife's company Bliss Balance Health. Excellent food and service that went the extra mile for this private event.

Let me start by saying I would always give a restaurant a chance to "right a wrong" before posting a bad review. In this case they righted a wrong with something WORSE. And dealt with it poorly. Out for a business dinner here it came with high recommendations. I ordered the salmon dinner entree. I ate about half of it... More

We have had Sunday brunch at Soby's three times in the past two months and we have loved it every time. The selections of breakfast and lunch foods at the same time is impressive and the chefs are always waiting to custom cook your eggs any way you like them. Wonderful service and excellent food at a reasaonable price. The... More

I took my girlfriend out for a lovely dinner on our second anniversary. I had an absolutely wonderful steak and she had the pork tenderloin. Both were fantastic. The dinner was topped off with a tasty banana cream pie desert. The service was great and atmosphere was nice.

We had an excellent meal in a wonderful atmosphere. We ordered 3 appetizers for our meal. My bacon Mac and cheese was the best mac and cheese I have had. My husband had the lettuce wrap shrimp and lobster and she crab soup. Both were excellent but soup was overpriced at $8.
