We dined outside. Greenville is such a pretty town that you should dine outside if that's am option. I had the sword fish and my husband had the smoked pork loin. Both were excellent. He had our entrée in less than 5 minutes after ordering. Also, ask to be placed in server Tyler B.'s area. He's top-notch!

Visited , an easy walk from the Hampton Inn. One of us had a very tasty loaded potato soup and salad and a great piece of banana cream pie. Another had a Caesar salad and pita bread with spicy pimento spread. All good. Another had a garden salad with a very small crab cake ($11). Not worth it. But also... More

We ate dinners inside on the second level. The scene is energetic, not too loud so you can have a conversation. Enjoyed the She Crab Soup and Fried Chicken entree. My wife enjoyed the Braised Short Rib. Thoroughly stuffed but had to order the White Chocolate Banana Creme Pie and enjoyed it very much.

just not happy with the food, Soby's is not as good as it was, the only reason I gave it a three is the service and our waiter was great.

A group of 9 took my mother there for her 90th Birthday dinner recently. We found the food to be superb, delicious, and a unique and interesting menu. Everyone at the table found their selections to be above and beyond their expectations. The service was five-star, our waiter was not only attentive, but affable and informative. Our only problem was... More

Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Decor to match. This is just the beginning of a wonderful dining experience. Food is sophisticated, but familiar in the best tradition of Southern cooking. Definitely worth a detour to Greenville for the experience.

Sunday Brunch is exceptional. Make reservations early because this is not a well-kept secret. Dinner is great as well. Just cannot beat the Brunch.

Had the strawberry salad (missing the jalapenos), the shrimp and grits and the white chocolate coconut pie. Wow. Now I know what shrimp and grits should taste like. The pie was incredible. As soon as I finished it I wanted another slice. Service was really good and being able to eat outside was a real win. Would repeat.
