My wife and I waited for an hour for our food. We informed our server we were going to the Peace Center after dinner so we ordered as soon as we were seated. 1 hour later we were still waiting. No appetizers, just entrees. Also, the guests at the table next to us were seated after us, and they were served and had completed there dinner while we were still waiting. When we asked our server for the check she went downstairs and immediately returned with our dinners. Makes you wonder how long the plates sat under a heat lamp. Regardless, we left so we would not miss our concert. My wife and I will not be returning to this restaurant, and we certainly wouldn't recommend it to our family and friends.

Went for brunch on Sunday to meet daughter who is in college in Greenville . Food was acceptable for a buffet. Not a lot of options for the price. I would suggest that the restaurant but placards in front of the food so it can be identified.

My mother’s fish was raw. My food was good, I went with a staple item so it’s hard to mess up. The server was nice but seemed a bit in the weeds with the number of tables maybe. The atmosphere is amazing for anyone interested in a date night. The portions are decent for $25+ plates. Most places you get a lot less. The drinks are fabulous.

We absolutely LOVE Soby’s brunch! We have a super picky almost 7 year old and he is the one that suggested going this last time. That NEVER happens and this time he ate more food than he ever has at one sitting! So worth every penny! Love it! We have already booked his surprise birthday brunch in December!

Friends in from Charlotte for first GVille visit.
One is pretty difficult to please food-wise and even she raved over her pork loin entree. Everything was great. Would send anyone I know and feel confident that they would be pleased and satisfied with dinner at Soby’s.

As usual Sobys did not disappoint. Crab cakes and pork tenderloin were both excellent and were the sauces that accompanied them. Service was attentive and helpful. Can't wait for our next visit to Sobys.

We ate at Soby's twice this week. We had out of town company--two different sets--and we knew they'd enjoy Soby's--and they did! Both nights were great --different waiters (both excellent), different choices from the menu--and everyone enjoyed the whole experience. I had trout one night, swordfish the other night -- and both were fabulous. Others loved the fried chicken, shrimp with grits, short ribs. Dessert hits were creme brulee and pecan pie. The ambiance and history of the place add to a wonderful experience. We know we can't go wrong at Soby's.

We went to Soby's for my mother's birthday with our 10-month-old baby . Everything was wonderful - food, drinks, service and ambience. The atmosphere was also vibrant enough for my child's occasional excitement to not be embarrassing. We ordered the fried green tomatoes, calamari, filet and crab cakes. Everything was delicious. We will be back to try other dishes. Highly recommend.

The food was great, as usual. However, we were seated near the server station and the noise level was off the charts. I could not hear anything over the roar. Also, the staff rearranged the tables for a large party no less than five times during our visit. Very distracting! Usually we are quite pleased with our visits to Soby’s, but this time was not up to the standard we’ve come to expect.

We had a fabulous experience at Sobys last Friday night. We sat in a comfortable booth with extra pillows. Our server (7 months pregnant....I can’t remember her name) was excellent. She was knowledgeable about the menu, poured the wine and the Guinness just right. We all had delicious meals, but I think mine was the best of all. I had She Crab soup as my appetizer and braised beef short ribs with herb polenta and collards. Save room for the white chocolate Banana Cream Pie! Whoa...it is their signature dessert and worth every calorie! Sobys has consistent quality food with a casual yet sophisticated atmosphere.

Very nice but loud. Food was excellent but kind of hard to carry on a conversation. Service was top notch. Highly recommend, but I would suggest requesting a more reserved area when making the reservation. I made my reservation via Open Table and seating location wasn’t and option.
