First, to stand out as a restaurant in downtown Greenville, you you have to be exceptional. Soby's is exceptional. We attended brunch for a very large group and I don't have a single negative. The food at Soby's is fantastic in both variety, quantity and quality. The restaurant is in a two story, impeccably redone warehouse that has a great... More

Soby's is a must for me whenever I'm in Greenville. The shrimp and grits is fantastic and you can't beat the white chocolate banana cream pie, though the key lime runs. Close second. The crab cakes are wonderful, too. Besides the food, the restaurant is elegant and beautifully decorated. I often eat alone and find it a perfect place to... More

Interesting menu changes up from time to time. Wide variety of we'll prepared food. Fresh vegetables. Nice atmosphere and great waitstaff. Not inexpensive. Across from Peace Center. Has valet parking which is a big plus in this area.

My wife and I went to Soby's for our anniversary,it was wonderful. We were treated as if we were the only people there. Our server Caddy was the best. Thank you Caddy for a wonderful evening. The food was excellent also, I highly recommend the crab cakes and for dessert the banana creme pie.

We dined on Sunday and sat outside to enjoy the breeze and people watching with our dinner. Our server recommended the seasonal watermelon and tomato salad which was very refreshing. My husband had the shrimp and grits which he said was among the best he ever had. He particularly liked the chorizo which was part of the dish. I ordered... More

Pork Tenderloin is the best item on the menu and I encourage all to try. The Tenderloin is cooked to perfection. I will admit that I have had better crab cakes. These were good but they didn't come close to the Pink House's crab cakes in Savannah. Our waiter made it a perfect night, especially as we were so large... More
