Food was great and the staff was very nice. This was our first time there and we will definitely return.
Omg I think I found the best beef brisket and ribs!!! Food was hands down incredible!!! Thank you Sophie’s for making the best ever bbq!! Beef brisket cheesesteak was phenomenal and ribs were delicious as well!! You guys have a customer for life!! Thank you
A very nice casual dining experience with an attentive staff. Only suggestion would be to change the music to something more suitable to the patrons enjoyment. Will definitely go back again.
Great food and service. We had a large group and they did an excellent job.
Great spot-don’t forget it’s byob.
Food was amazing
Great food, great service , very friendly helpful staff I will go back for sure!
Amazing food! The brisket, smoked wings and greens were out of this world!
Anniversary dinner in Wednesday night. Decor was great and felt cozy! Our server did a great job selling the food. Definitely lived up to the hype. The chicken sandwich, Mac & cheese, and wings are why I will be back!
Vibe was awesome and staff was super nice. Waited about 40 minutes for main course even though there were only a handful of tables seated. The coleslaw was awesome as was the white bama sauce but meat and fries were over cooked to the point That food tasted mostly like grease. I had high hopes-
everything was just perfect; the food was delicious and the service was very hospitable.
Very good service, friendly clean restaurant would happily dine here again
Great food! Our partY ordered ribs, brisket, the shrimp skewer bowl, hush puppies and mac&cheese. All delicious! Did not have a long wait. We will go back!!
This was my and my husband's first time at Sophie's and once we just looked at the menu we knew were going to come back--so many good things to choose! And once we actually ate the food, it was a no-brainer. Definitely would recommend. And the sweet potato hush puppies...I could eat those for dessert all the time!
Food took 37 minutes from the time I ordered to the time it came to my table. When the food arrived, it was basically room temperature. I had to wait 5 minutes for the waitress to come check on us, I then told her that the food wasn't hot at all. She took my food back to be warmed up. 10 minutes later, my food came back the exact same as I gave it to them. So, I just got the food wrapped up and brought it home. Warmed it up the next day and the food was tasty. From now on, if I order from there, I will do takeout only. There is absolutely no reason for an entire platter to come out room temperature TWICE!
The shrimp skewers, cornbread, & Mac are amazing!
Great spot for a quick meal and tasty food.
Very good long wait for good but , so worth it . Will go back soon
Great menu - a combination of traditional bbq with a twist of whimsy. Everything was delicious. Service was great. BYO and there is a liquor store a few doors down. Highly recommend!
We arrived for our reservation and were seated immediately. Decor was really beautiful and the food smell delicious. Our reservation was a Thursday evening at 6:30pm. We watched them fill pickup order after pickup order. After we ordered we were informed they were out of pulled pork, ribs and brisket. Pretty much all of their BBQ meats! Not planning to return any time soon. We left and had a delicious dinner at La Cabra Brewing Smokehouse in Bryan Mawr.
Food was outstanding for the genre. Service was a bit slow and at times inattentive. Restaurant appeared to be a bit understaffed.
Great, authentic BBQ spot. Outstanding ribs. High quality food.
The service and food was good. The restaurant was on the warm side. Other than that I have no complaints.
The food was really good. I never at fat from the brisket but the way this was prepared it tasted so good lol.
IT was terrible. The shrimp was over salted the hush puppies were over cooked and after I complained about the shrimp the chef made me some grilled shrimp that were tough and tasted like show leather. Nobody ever checked to ask how the replacement dish was and they had no ventilation or AC and it was 95 degrees.
Overall experience was lackluster. Overpriced for average food. I had high expectations based off reviews and their Instagram. The cornbread and hush puppies were good, but their Mac and bbq platter didn’t blow me away. The servers were very nice, but the food took a long time to come out.
Excellent BBQ Joint! Very good ribs, pulled pork and brisket. Loved the cole slaw and cornbread too.
We went on recommendation of family members. We got the smoked chicken wings app of 5 which were very tasty and well done to a crisp. These are big wings. I went for Sophies surf & turf that I saw on menu online or the crabcake sandwhich, neither that were on the menu and there were no other specials that day? I got BBQ salmon as I was swayed by grits and grilled asparagus accompaniment. It was just ok . I love grits but these are very different and not much flavor. Salmon was a little fishy to me but in fairness it is my least favorite fish to eat so I made the mistake of getting fish in a barbecue/smoker place and probably should have known better. I tasted my hubbies 1/2 rack ribs which he raved and I thought they were great and very tender! He also got a cuban sandwich,which was very big and tasty. Do not go if your on a time limit as the chef does take his time but I like that as I feel he really cares about what he is putting out and I love the break between app & entree as I abhor getting food all at once! Some dishes we saw go by looked so interesting! Portions are large so you will not leave hungry. Servers are friendly and good as it was very busy ! I would recommend making sure menu online is current as it appears to change as I found out. It is not cheap but I would go back try and other items.
I’d read a review about Sophie’s and wanted to try it. There’s street parking with meters. The outdoor dining is at picnic tables. It’s BYOB with a deli down the street that sells beer in case you didn’t bring anything with you. The food was delicious. We ordered the half pound of brisket meal which came with 2 sides and cornbread. I chose the potato salad and the Mac and cheese for the sides. We also had 5 wings. This was more food than 2 of us could finish (I brought home the leftovers and look forward to eating them for lunch). The Mac and cheese was served in a small cast iron skillet with extra cheese on top. It would’ve been enough for a main meal. They serve lemonade and cane sodas. The people were friendly. We’ll definitely be returning.
We mostly enjoyed the food, but the service was inconsistent and the outdoor seating wasn’t ideal. There were a lot of bugs and the seating was spaced rather closely together, and some tables were over grates and gave the feeling of sitting in an alley.
The food is really good. I was very impressed. Please note that this is a BYOB place and the service is slow so bring a few extra beers or bottles and enjoy the wait. The service is under resourced but the food is so good. We had the Brussel sprouts covered in cheese that were wonderfully charred. The brisket was fall apart. They give you a knife but you don’t need it. The sides were also very good - fresh cut sweet potato fries and baked beans. The corn bread is so good. Better than my wife’s unfortunately. I think we may have to come back to Ardmore more often.
Food was fair service was excellent
Great barbecue. They were quick, courteous and the chicken /rib combo was fine.
Great experience. Resturant def needs additional staff but the waitresses did the best that they could with the number of customers in the establishment. ( as well as the online & take out orders)
Will defiantly visit again..
Brisket was absolutely spot on!!! Hats off to Greg!
I will happily come back. The food was out of this world. The staff was attentive and very friendly. Please keep the surf and turf so I can bring my husband!
Was disappointed they ran out of ribs. Appetizers were amazing. Main course not so much. I went on 4 of July so I will give a pass. Staff were nice.
The food was amazing. The service was exceptional! The whole experience was superb! The best barbecue I’ve tasted in a long time!
Pretty good experience as first timers
Awesome place to go enjoy your dinner
