    Lynette provided some of the best service we’ve ever had. Loved the fried green tomatoes and signature Old Fashioned. We had crab cakes and duck for entrees. They were good. Fantastic wine list. Could use additional domestic by the glass options. Our table for 2 was undesirably located on the “server highway” and next to a party of 12. Really not a good spot for a party of 2.

    My husband and I came here for an impromptu date night a few days ago. I have been coming here for years, and this experience was the best yet. The food and wine list are exceptional (wine list is the best in the region). Our soup, short ribs and crab cakes were perfect, and service was impeccable. Donnie was attentive, personable, and knowledgeable about everything on the food and wine list.

    Amazing wine list - world class! Sort of out of sync with a casual southern cooking place (food is very good) but if you want to drop $2K+ on Harlan Estates or Screaming Eagle cabs, you can.

    Truly outstanding food and service! Highly recommend the boudin balls, mussels, crab cake, and shrimp and grits — and the sommalier gave perfect advice for wine pairings. We also had our three young children, and they were incredibly welcome. Couldn’t have chosen a better spot for dinner!

    Fabulous dining experience for our anniversary. Personalized menu and complimentary Prosecco toast. She crab soup, crab cakes, and shrimp & grits were all terrific- the best we’ve had. The desserts with candles were exquisite creations from a very talented pastry chef. And the service? Donnie made our night special with excellent recommendations and courteous attention. Very professional with a great sense of humor too.

    The restaurant space is nicely done. Noise level allowed us to have a conversation across the table easily. The meal delivery to our table was long and unacceptable. I realize that it was Easter and that they had been busy all day according to our server. Our soup took 45 minutes to arrive after multiple inquiries. Our entrees were good and arrived soon after the soup. They tried to make it right and I appreciate that but after a long travel day what was supposed to be a special evening was overshadowed by poor execution. This is probably a really good restaurant on any other day but given this experience I would stay on top of my order more closely.

    Tried something new and it was very good. I wish there were a few different side options to choose from. We were seated at the two person table right at the bottom of the stairs which made it difficult to enjoy our Easter meal as there was a constant stream of people coming down the stairs behind us.

    We had a wonderful experience (again) at Soby's! From the valet parking to the 301 Bloody Marys, the food and service, everything was perfect. We all enjoyed our food, salads with shrimp and a salmon special, pimento cheese and pita appetizer. Our server was wonderful as well. It's hard to have a complaint, but if I had one, I wish that some sort of bread came with the meal for the table. I absolutely LOVE Soby's, it's my favorite restaurant in Greenville. A perfect experience every time.

    We dined at Soby’s before our Sunday night show at the Peace Center. Our server was aware of our timeline and kept the dishes coming from soup to dessert without making us feel rushed. My husband raved about the beef short ribs and goat cheese mashed potatoes. My shrimp and grits were traditional but not spectacular. The expresso crème brute was divine. Our server was knowledgeable about the food and drink menu. His suggestions were spot on. He surprised us with an anniversary cheesecake that he served with cappuccino!

    Went for Sunday brunch again which is one of the best in Greenville. Donnie was our waiter and he was spectacular-a seasoned veteran who knows the menu and makes the experience enjoyable. We had mimosas which were okay but the shrimp and grits, the crab cakes and the fried green tomato eggs Benedict were all exceptional.

    My wife always gets the crab cakes.. Never a disappointment. I likewise are never disappointed with my standard: the filet medium rare. This time around the chef changed the accompaniments, which were the highlights of the dish. Absolutely excellent. The steak I thought was a little chewy, but that might have been due to it being more toward the medium side of medium rare. I’m sure they would have gracefully corrected, but with Peace Center tickets in hand it was a timing issue. Service was as great as it always is. Modifications to the menu are effortlessly accommodated. This is our Peace Center go to and will continue to be.
