This is my favorite restaurant in Charleston

The difficulty with Charleston restaurants is that if they serve good food, they are almost all expensive. Soho's is an exception. The menu is varied and interesting; the food is reasonably priced; service is good, and they can make adjustments in ingredients to accommodate food allergies.

A great place to take out of town visitors. Great rueben and personal sized thin crust pizzas, sandwiches and Italian dishes.

Visited with friends. Owner asked us about the experience and when we offered our invites. She became belligerent and swore at members of out party. She smelled of alcohol and appeared extremely volatile. Obviously, she has anger management issues. If you go there, avoid speaking with her. Wait staff and bartender very nice . Food is okay. Has gone downhill... More

Food just OK. Prices out of line with quality and variety of dishes. Living on its reputation with the trendy crowd.

Located in the Charleston Farmers Market, Soho's is a local favorite. Great menu, funky decor and a nice place to dine with friends, and since it is located at the Farmers Market, you can shop for everything from plants to vegetables to Christmas trees, depending on the season.

The meatball panini sandwhich is amazing and seasoned perfectly. A great place to swing by for lunch. The minestrone soup is to die for as well. Will come back next yime that I am in town!

Ordered steamed mussels which came in a cream sauce that was super heavy, like a thick alfredo sauce. Disgusting! Pasta and bread didn't taste fresh. Service was fine. Would not recommend it.

This restaurant still reflects the founder's character for carefully prepared dishes, interesting entrees, and comfortable food. Service is always very good, staff are welcoming, and the food is the best. Reservations are not required but a good idea for any size group.

The menu is a bit pricey, but the service is always on point and this is the first place I ever had Dead Guy ale on tap. The appetizers are worth ordering as well, which is a welcome change for most places.
