“A great evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a great place! We had dinner there. They seated us on the second floor and we had a direct view into the kitchen. The food (crab cakes and salmon) were delicious and unique. Our waiter was excellent with the wine selections.

“Always Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We eat at Soby's on most of our trips to Greenville. The seafood rivals any we get on the coast. Wonderful waitresses.

“Soby's - still my favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

If I had to pick a favorite restaurant in the area, it would be Soby's. Their "new South" menu items are always wonderful. I often end up getting a shrimp and grits appetizer and a salad so I can have room at the end for their home made ice cream. Yum! The waitstaff is always knowledgeable and attentive and all in all it is a wonderful experience.

“Food is great, but WAY overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The food sounds delicious. In fact it is pretty darn good, but not good enough to justify the prices. I did enjoy the meal, but I wasn't overwhelmed. Based on the prices and descriptions of the meals, I should be floored. I cannot say the price justified the meal.
