Our first trip into downtown Greenville. Soby's was reccomended and we weren't disappointed. Had an early dinner, it was busy so they seated us upstairs. A little noisy but not bad. Service was great and the food was good. I'd go back!

Needless to say, we have never had anything unsatisfactory at Soby's. From their unbelievable 37 page wine menu, to each classically local and seasonal dishes, Soby's does it all. The favorite in our family is the crab cakes with the corn maque choux.

Absolutely, bar area could be a little noisy... but if you sit upstairs you'd be fine - you'd just have to keep toddlers away from the stair/railings
