    The service was outstanding, but the sandwich I had ordered came to the table in a grilled bun that seamed to be stale. The bottom of the bun on the outside ended up being hard as a rock. other than that all was good.

    We ate Sunday brunch upstairs at a round table and loved that it was quiet, as we were enjoying our visit with our friends. The food was delicious and LOVED the $3.01 mimosa's. Will be returning again and again......

    Awesome evening and the dinner was spot on. Wait staff were friendly and helpful with descriptions of the entree options. Very pleasant evening and we will definitely return on our next trip to Greenville. Conveniently located near the Westin and many downtown locations.

    Great value on the menu items. Sothern cuisine well cooked and well plated, with attention to the complimentary items like Carolina Gold Rice and Course Grits. The rice is called "Charleston ice cream" for a reason. Good cadence on the service, too...you don't ever feel left alone, but not bothered with verbal anesthesia. Everything is refined but not stuffy. Soby's has maintained a refined service culture.

    Soby's is okay. I would not recommend it. To me, it's overrated. We ordered shrimp and grits and crab cakes. The food okay, but for the amount you paid... it is not worth it. As a resident of Atlanta, I have had better food for the value. I would not recommend it. This is my opinion. The service was great. Thank you, Michael.

    Main entrées we’re delicious. (Filet and Fried Chicken). The were not hot just warm which seemed odd. The peach crisp was horrible as there was no crisp pastry. Drinks were excellent and the biscuits.

    The food for all 5 patrons was rather average. Rather disappointing as we usually like the food. Lemon ricotta pancakes had very little lemon ricotta. The oatmeal was bland. Disappointing to say the least.

    We have been to Soby’s many times. We thought we would try Brunch this morning. We were very disappointed with the fried chicken. It was so salty we could hardly eat it. The biscuit & gravy were delicious as well as the sticky bun. We did not say anything to our waitress regarding the very salty chicken. We are not complainers. The service was outstanding!!

    Cocktails and mocktails were delicious. Appetizers all sound wonderful, we went with the Brussel sprouts and it was DELICIOUS. Entrees we’re plenty of food, shrimp and grits and short ribs, the meat was tender and shrimp cook perfectly. Dessert (Carolina peach crisp) hit the spot!

    Always excellent. Service was above and beyond. However. The special flat iron steak was not good. Was so tough. Not cuttable or chewable. At least half of it. Management asked what they could do and was very professional but it shouldn’t have made it out of kitchen. Unfortunate but we will still go back.

    We looked forward to eating there as we had eaten there about two years ago. First, our server was good. I ordered crab cakes which at best was room temperature. They took it back and it came back just a tat warmer, not enough. Over all, it's not worth the money. My husband got the pork tenderloin which was not cooked well enough for pork, very red and it also wasn't hot.

    I was looking forward to having dinner at Soby’s for our anniversary after minimizing the number of times we eat out. Yesterday was a bit disappointing. It took 45 minutes for the food to come and it was not the outstanding food I remember from eating there previously. The food was barely warm and the duck was overcooked. Not sure I will go back.
