We stopped in and are in the bar area. We started with cocktails and they have a well stocked bar. For appetizers we had the skillet octopus and the cheese board. Great selection of cheeses and well presented, the octopus was succulent. For entrees we...More

The waitstaff and service were very good. Wine list is incredible. I was very disappointed in the food, it was very bland, especially for being "southern". We ordered the fried chicken and the bacon wrapped tenderloin, both had hardly any flavor. The collard greens were...More

After a leisurely walk through Greenville, our friends recommended SOBY'S for dinner. We were not disappointed. The ambience is modern southern as well as the menu selection. The service is friendly and not intrusive. We enjoyed our dinner and experience. The owner has his finger...More

The brunch buffet and selection of drinks is just wonderful! Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Dinner here is great too. They occasionally have wine tastings here with a Wine MeetUp of Greenville--those are great too.

Outstanding service and excellent entries. But take a pass on the bar--particularly if you arrive before 530 when the bar people think the valet parking starts (it really starts at 5).

Location couldn't have been better--5 blocks from our hotel, mere steps from the Peace Center where we attended a symphony concert. We made a reservation so were seated right away. Customer service was excellent--the manager even comped an appetizer because they had to move us...More

Fried green tomatoes were very good, but my entree was ridiculously good - - half crab cake over creamer corn, and half shrimp and grits. Wow, fabulous meal. More food than I needed to eat, but finished it all, so good!

On the plus side, super wine list. They were out of the bottle we ordered, but made good with an upgrade for the same price. Food was less consistant. My wife's vegetable plate was over-seasoned. My beef short rib was tasty, but a little dry....More

Menu is basicly seafood. If you Google Soby's, I believe the whole menu in online. The prices were ok but not low.
