Description: Soby's New South Cuisine is a blend of contemporary cuisine infused with traditional southern ingredients. The restaurant opened in 1997 and is housed in the warm environment of a renovated, century-old building and has a mezzanine level that can accommodate large parties ordering a la carte. Starting with fresh, seasonal ingredients, our chefs transform Southern favorites into something comfortable and fresh. The wine list is a consistent winner of Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast awards. Signature dishes include Barbecue Shrimp and Grits, Fried Green Tomatoes with Jalapeno Pimento Cheese, and Crab Cakes Remoulade.

“Sunday brunch”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

This is a quaint restaurant with exposed old brick and is quite charming. Don't miss Sunday brunch. Seems to be a great mid 30's hang out with outdoor seething and front doors that open to the street so you really feel connected to downtown. It's great. They also have a lift apartment that's available for rent for private parties. Have eaten there 3 times and not on Sunday. Take my word. Sunday brunch your best bet

“Reliable Excellence - Sobys”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

In recent years Sobys has become the "old reliable" for us at odd times of the day, busy times downtown, and a crowd going to the theater. A broad American menu, knowledgable servers, inside or outside dining on Main Street, pork tenderloin, rib eyes, Mahi Mahi, tuna, trout, crab cakes, she crab soup all excel. Prices reasonable, expect $50pp with beverage and appetizer. I don't think you will be disappointed.

“Delightful place to eat and have drinks”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

We were with another couple and she had some food challenges. It did not cause any problems or concerns to Soby's they just took it in stride and everything was wonderful.Our server was very good and we'll trained which you do not find to often in the US. The food was great and came out of the kitchen exactly as we ordered. The drinks were very good and the atmosphere is superb.we strongly recommend Soby's.
