Great Southern cuisine

Unique fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese were delicious. Shrimp and grits were absolutely amazing along with the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin will definitely be returning.

It has It all! Delightful ambiance from the time you enter the courtyard until you leave smiling and happy. This restaurant offers delicious gourmet food with exquisite service. My crab cakes were the very best that ever entered my mouth. The selection of entrees is outstanding. The desserts are to die for. Enjoy

When we first arrived, no one seemed to know if they had a table for us, and if not, how long the wait was. We decided to wait at the bar, and even settled in to eat at the bar, when they decided there was a table upstairs. This restaurant is in a huge repurposed cotton mill, great atmosphere. The...

The title says it all. They do everything top notch and the food and wine selection is excellent. One minor complaint is that I feel the wine is a little pricey but I might just be too accustomed to all the great, inexpensive wine I'm used to getting in Europe. I always take family, clients and friends to this restaurant... More

We come here for the blood orange martini. Awesome! We always sit at the bar and receive great service. We come here for drinks each time we visit Greenville.

Great outdoor courtyard area, and SPACIOUS indoor dining area. Bar area is nicely appointed and well stocked, friendly staff, we had a reservation and were seated nearly immediately on a very busy night. Starters are shining beacons for Soby's. Entrees were very good to excellent, except for the rabbit dish, which tasted like chicken meat... Wedge salad was impressive, even... More

I love Soby's. It is in the delightful downtown are of Greenville. Great decor, reminds me of a revamped old building. I love the food, a lot of southern flavors and the best she crab soup and green tomatoes. Pricey but good for a special occasion.

We were unprepared for the wonderful experience we had at Soby's. We stopped in on a Sunday evening and were seated immediately - sometimes this indicates a less than popular spot, but we were very pleasantly surprised. Our server was Rick. When he learned this was our first visit to Soby's he gave us a run through of the signature... More

Soby's is a Greenville mainstay. A trip to Soby's will include fine-dining with carefully prepared food that is unique because it includes a southern flare. The atmosphere is conducive to a meal with family and friends that allows you talk and enjoy what has been placed before you. I have been here many times, but went recently for my bachelorette...
