The spring rolls were creative spin on collard greens! So good. Also the shrimp and grits were full of flavor with great texture. I would've wanted a little more grits as far as portion size, however, I was full nonetheless.

Sobys is very charming. The staff were amazing and made us feel like family. They were very attentive and knowledgeable. I enjoyed great wine and wonderful atmosphere, but most importantly the best friend chicken of my life. I almost ordered something else but figured I should try the chicken since I was in the south. It didn't disappoint though it... More

From the deviled eggs to the short ribs, everything is simply great! Don't forget the apple pie with salted caramel ice cream

Have eaten at Soby's on several occasions, always great, thought we'd try the Thanksgiving fare with family. I didn't find it quite up to my expectations.. Good enuf, no big issues, and the price was reasonable at $30 all in. Main course included turkey, ham and carved prime rib. The casserole dishes were tasty enough but 1 or 2 were... More

The wine list is extensive (a bit pricey) and has pages upon pages of wonderful selections. The Bacon Mac & Cheese App is to die for, as is the Calamari and the Mussels - that we all shared. The crab soup was extraordinary - not to heavy but a creamy delight. Now the main course, a southern standard so I... More

There may actually be better restaurants in Greenville, but Soby's combination of great food, great service, and great atmosphere is really hard to beat. The food is southern eclectic ranging from fried chicken to a southern-style fish fry. I guess those dishes are good, but their other menu items and specials are much more interesting. I started with spinach salad... More

Because most of the family were out of town or had other obligations, my Mother and I made reservations at Soby's for Thanksgiving Brunch at 11:00...cooking for two is never easy and too much food afterwards. We were shown our table upstairs (thankfully, there was a buffet line set up on each floor). I was hesitant at first, hoping the... More

We highly recommend Soby's. Wonderful brunch with friendly, efficient service. Housed in an old warehouse there's a lot of ambience too. Price was affordable.

We ate here late one evening after a very long and crazy day. The food was good and the service was excellent. It was very near closing time, but they let us eat at a high table in the bar at the window overlooking the street and took very good care of us, didn't hurry us. Our server was very... More
