Sophie’s Grill & Bar is an Eastern European-inspired American eatery and sports bar in Cary, NC. We use traditional recipes and preparation methods from the old world to handcraft pub fare in a uniquely delicious way.

We’re excited to open Sophie’s in Cary after 11 years in Morrisville at Desy’s Grill & Bar.

Bring the whole family to watch every game on our 24 TVs, enjoy our full bar with handmade cocktails and 22 craft beers on tap, plus live music and karaoke.

Early lunch. Nice menu selection.

The restaurant was nice, the food was very good and the staff was friendly. They just need to work on their service. Our waiter didn't write anything down so we both got something we didn't order. It was fixed quickly, but, there was only one other couple eating, so we aren't sure how the order could get mixed up. There's no shame in writing down the order.

We had high hopes for this place based on the pictures on the menu, but it turned out to be over-priced bar food - and not great at that. It seemed like the server knew the food was so-so because he never gave us a real chance to critique it, even though 2 of us barely ate our dinners. We ordered the mozz sticks, chicken wings, a burger, salsa salmon and 2 kids meals - the only thing that looked pretty good was the burger. Felt like we were out $90 and could have gotten a better meal at Chili's.

Has potential but food must improve. Setting is great, menu looked inventive, they use Open Table, and our server couldn’t have been better. Came for the stuffed cabbage, ordered it, and waited way too long considering it was 6:30 and we were the only guests. The cabbage was dry and tasteless and the stuffing solid meat needing more rice. Such a disappointment.

Got up with some friends and sat down to have some drinks and dinner and we were promptly taken care of. We’ve been a few times now and service is always impeccable and the food is fantastic! Felt like part of a family, Melissa and Sasha behind the bar are beyond amazing and super sweet!! Desy the owner even sat and chatted with us for a while, I love seeing how involved she is! No complaints about this place it comes highly recommended actually! Very family friendly for a nice night out and what a patio setup too! Top notch folks Top notch!

An excellent place with great atmosphere and an attentive staff. The owner is friendly and the food is delicious. Mediterranian favorites and both classic burgers as well as Lamb and Bison burgers as well. I'll definitely be back!

We had a party of 10, and were seated promptly. 2 guests had dietary restrictions and we were well taken care of. Our server, Nelly, was very attentive and the food was fresh. We will be coming back.

Well, it was memorable. The server appeared to be high as a kite. After taking our order, she disappeared. Appetizers were quick, but half of the wings were missing half the meat. Then dinner took over an hour to arrive (they were not busy). After the server disappeared, we weren't absorbed by anyone else. We found out at the end, after we had to hunt someone down for the bill, that she had quit mid shift. My father in laws chicken was so over cooked he couldn't chew it. Half the menu you see online isn't available in store, so don't get super excited. Memorable, but in the wrong ways.
