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.

“Great Sunday Brunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

We ate the Sunday Brunch Buffet here and as always it was outstanding. Fresh prepared food including meats, French Toast, unique sides and a loaded up dessert table. It's worth every penny!

“Brunch on Sunday is a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Best Sunday Brunch I have probably had. Buffet has breakfast and lunch items. Lots of desserts as well. Definitely try the grits, actually try everything. The beauty of a buffet.

Atmosphere is fantastic. We went during Christmas season and Santa Clause was even there. They also have outdoor seating right on Main St.

Reservations are highly recommended.

We did go for dinner one night. Ask about the room in the wine cellar. We had a party of 12 down there. Quite a different atmosphere than the main and upper level.

“Just a great dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Great food, great service, always something special on the menu. Love their Shrimp & Grits and the Pan Roasted Snapper. Prices a bit high but well worth it for a special dining experience. Soby's won't disappoint you.

“Sunday brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
