These folks seem to know how to handle a large group, Food was yummy. Everyone liked everything that they had from drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert. One guest ordered the chicken pot pie and it was... More

Wonderful brunch at a great price. I have been twice now. I originally was expecting it to be overpriced, but it is very reasonable give the options one has. It is a buffet so be hungry no menu options.

I dined solo. Although I was seated quickly, it took me an hour and 45 minutes from sit down to leaving which did not impress me. A lot of waiting involved. The food was okay, but not as good as expected given the hype.

Sobey's has a great southern food menu, terrific shrimp and grits and some of my favorite fried green tomatoes. The bar atmosphere is also worth the trip, and you can order full meal at the bar if you cannot get a table When the weather is good, you can sit in the open window tables and have free entertainment as...

My husband and I went to Soby's for brunch with 2 other couples. I recommend having reservations as they are very busy. The brunch was buffet style, which I prefer, and they did not disappoint with the choices thy offered. They had a carving station, an omelet station, a row of tables with numerous choices of brunch style items and... More

I'd heard a lot about Soby's, and was sent here by staff at the Westin. I was disappointed. The "arugula, beet, and berry salad" had a standard helping of arugula, 1 blackberry, 2 strawberry quarters, maybe 6 small [< 1/2"] cubes of beets, and a small nugget of goat cheese. For the price, it was underwhelming. The citrus vinaigrette was... More
