Fabulous but casualSoby's is a must-dine in Greenville. This is the kind of place that you'll love eating at regularly and it's also easy to recommend to friends and relatives. The kitchen is visible and you can clearly see how organized and methodical the cook staff is. Service is quick and attentive. Recent visits included an excellent blackened grouper on grits. Sob's fried green tomatoes are outstanding. Wine list is very good. Prices are affordable. Even though Soby's and the Lazy Goat are owned by the same company, Soby's is the better restaurant on a food basis. Lazy Goat has a better view.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Good!My daugehter and I were at Soby's fro dinner Tuesday evening before a show at the Peace Center. We had a man named Soupy as a waiter and he was very nice. My daughter had Filet migmnon and I had scallops with mashed potaoes and green beans. Both dishes were delicios and beautifully presented. Service was a bit hectic, but fine for the amount of people tthat were in there. Yes, we will be back it is always a pleasure to dine at Soby's!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSo impressed!It was my husband and my first wedding anniversary and we had just moved to the Greenville area. Someone suggested Soby's and it was perhaps the best food we'd had in years. The bacon wrapped pork tenderloin was to die for and my husband demolished the braised beef short rib glazed in Cheerwine BBQ sauce. They even brought their drink menu out on and Ipad so you could search through the extensive list with ease. We sat on the top floor overlooking the kitchen expo with was fun to see all the dishes before they went out. It convinced us into calamari and She crab soup, which we do not regret. Their menu changes often with the season, which only meant to us that we would have to come back more often.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great foodAtmosphere is perfect for joining friends for dinner. Service has always been impeccable with knowledgable servers. Nice open ambiance set in an European style, I recommend it for smal gatherings or date night.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOur reservations were scheduledOur reservations were scheduled for 7:30, and we arrived around 7:15. At 8:00, the host still had not called us for a table. A very nice server saw us standing on the patio area, and he asked if we would like to sit there. We said yes because we were both hungry and tired of standing. His service was amazing and the patio was beautiful. The food was delicious! I was so disappointed in the host/hostess because they did not seem to have a firm handle on reservations and seating people in a timely manner.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMalways greatWe love Soby's!

Excellent food and preparation. Fried Green Tomatoes were very good as was the calamari and desserts. Main courses were prepared perfectly! Would definitely return next time we are in Greenville.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Good Food & ServiceI took two co-workers for a business dinner and Soby's did not disappoint. The only drawback is that Soby's can be a bit noisy if the restaurant is full.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the food! Loved theLoved the food! Loved the atmosphere!

The menu was unique and the food and the wine were excellent. Our server, Lynette, was very knowledgeable and very engaging. The restaurant aalled two days ahead of time and offered a variety of seating choices (upstairs/downstairs, indoor/outdoor, table/booth) which we thought was a nice touch. We highly recommend this place for an overall great experience.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA great Mother's Day treatWe enjoyed the Sunday buffet on Mother's Day and it was outstanding! Instead of the normal quiche, Soby's served egss benedict, crab cakes, grilled salmon, ham, pork and prime rib. They also served a cold salad of shrimp, calamari and mussels, and the salad selection was delicious. We were seated at 'table 301' - the best seat in the house - and our whole experience was great!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Service and food.Went for Mother's Day.

Food is always interestingly presented and is delicious! Atmosphere is energetic and puts a zing into your evening.

Dinner is excellent as well.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousSoby's is always amazing and this trip was no different. Everything was perfect, especially the wine recommendations.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFarewell to Greenville in Style...!Graduation at Furman and our last visit to Greenville for the foreseeable future. What a wonderful way to say "farewell", with our graduation dinner at Soby's! As always, we were treated to delicious food and impeccable service. Of course, we started off with light and fluffy, and ever so flavorful, cheese biscuits (we went through two baskets, couldn't resist!) and then moved on to the fried green tomatoes appetizer, some of the best that I've had in SC. Although it sounds simple, one of our favorite entrees is the fried chicken with apple butter -- the chicken is seasoned and cooked to perfection, leaving it moist and delicious and the apple butter is a great complement to the chicken. Soby's is a MUST if you're ever in Greenville!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great mealLove Soby's. We always have to stop and eat here when we are passing through. It never disappoints us5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMenu variety to meet all tastesWe chose Soby's to celebrate the completion of my daughter's freshman year at Furman. Wine and appetizers provided a nice start - especially the spice pimento cheese. The menu had wonderful choices to meet our somewhat eclectic taste. The she-crab soup was some of the best we have eaten. The rabbit was delicious as was the chef's special fish dish. The filet chosen by one in our party was cooked perfectly and served with beautifully prepared asparagus. To cap it off we had a wonderful lime tart and very nice creme brulee.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSoby's is one of my favoriteSoby's is one of my favorite restaurants. The only drawback to the Sunday brunch is there is just not enough room to fit the people, the food and the waitstaff. Our table was right next to the food line, so there was constantly someone bumping into us and we felt like sardines in a can. Waiter was very good and friendly. Beef burgundy a little dry but otherwise a good experience.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellant food, waiter wasExcellant food, waiter was well informed and made terrific recommendations on food, wine and dessert.

Just a few dishes but everything we had was good. Food was fresh, diverse, everything original and carefully made. There were no weak links in the meal, just satisfaction. We had the trout over polenta and a vegetable platter to share, the trout was particularly good, not drowning in butter as some make it, just "trouty" enough. Strawberry short cake for dessert with coffee, perfect finish.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time I am in GreenvilleEvery time I am in Greenville (home is out of state)- I make an effort to dine at Soby's. I love the food, the service, the ambiance. I plan to make an effort to try dessert next time I am there, because the desserts sound heavenly as well.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Soby's. We ateFirst time at Soby's. We ate there before the Boz Scaggs show at the Peace Center. The food was excellent. I had the duck, my dinner companions had the short ribs and the special for the night, scallops. We all raved about our dishes. Try the pimento cheese appetizer or the fried green tomatoes. We had both and they were really good. The pimento cheese has just a little kick to it. MMM.
We shared the key lime and banana creme pies. They were very good.
I cannot wait to go back and try other entrees. Our server, Scott provided excellent service and great recommendations.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a businessGreat place for a business dinner, excellent food, excellent service and great atmosphere.

Honored my request for a table downstairs for six. Good service - fun place!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have been tryingMy wife and I have been trying out many Greenville restaurants. Soby' s had always been on our list, but we went to many others before we went here. We were very pleasantly surprised the moment we walked in. The main room has a warm feeling and is comfortable to be in. We were especially glad we had asked for a booth. The booths are private, but still allow "people watching". The outdoor dining looked like fun too.
We will defifitely be back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything exceeded my expectationsEverything exceeded my expectations from the delicious scallops, attentive service and comfortable ambiance.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks for a great diningThanks for a great dining experience.

My entire family loves to meet and dine at Soby's. Great wine list. Excellent service. Exceptional food preparation and wonderful atmosphere. We love the character of the building and valet parking downtown is a big plus. We be back many more times. We see Soby's as an anchor for downtown and the many restaurant choices in downtown.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place. Wallow in it!The scenic view (for us) was from the delightful chef's table above station 1, where the chef shouts the orders back to the kitchen staff, occasionally pausing for a glance up and to send a smile to the table. Marvelous anniversary dinner and wine. This was our second anniversary (our own 29th) at Soby's restaurant and we were totally electrified by it. A second family, whom we urged to have their own anniversary (6th) there were just as thrilled as we. We all live in Suwanee, Georgia, and enjoy occasional weekends in Greenville; about twice or three times per year.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingFirst time at Soby's and Outstanding!!

You can't go wrong with Sobys. I would like to see a couple more item selections on entree menu and an updated dessert menu. I have never been fond of the dessert selections at Sobys which definitely needs a change. Other than that, Sobys is always a wonderful place for dining.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWent out of there way to makeWent out of there way to make birthday event fantastic.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLisa our waitress was veryLisa our waitress was very attentive and personable.
