    Been to Soby’s many times over the last 20 years. Seemed overbooked for the first time ever. Got seated very late and waiter worked tirelessly to ensure we made our Peace Center show on time. But, ran out of time for dessert. However, we will be back.

    First time dining here. Ate outside. Fabulous atmosphere. Extensive wine list. We ordered the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. They had a pimento cheese fondue on them—so good!! I had the crab cakes. They were outstanding. I cleaned my plate! My husband had the scallops again they were wonderful. Everything was cooked perfectly, came to the table hot and was very flavorful! Our server went out of her way to get the bartender to make me a millionaires coffee— it was awesome!!! Highly recommend!

    We were in the mood for Shrimp & Grits so we headed to THE BEST SHRIMP & GRITS in Greenville - Soby's. They did not disappoint. After cocktails, we ordered the Greens Salad (which we split) and then our Shrimp & Grits. We decided to end the delicious evening with the yummy Banana Cream Pie. Service was excellent and we appreciated the valet parking.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
