The restaurant was booked for the time we wanted so we accepted a reservation in the bar area. Since smoking is prohibited in Greenville establishments, it was a pleasure sitting in that section. Our server was very nice and our food was very good.

I’ve been to Soby’s for several business dinners. Never a disappointment and last night was no exception. Food and service were both great. Love the southern flavor.

We were in town for a wedding and enjoying the downtown area. We were not disappointed in Soby’s. We had Grouper, Filet and Crab cakes and the Pork Tenderloin! Every meal was fantastic! Great food and wonderful service!

Ate there for business by the sidewalk windows. It had a nice vibe. The food was well prepared with excellent and caring service. Valet parking was free. Lots of other people I know told me their rave "must do" reviews.

Absolutely, bar area could be a little noisy... but if you sit upstairs you'd be fine - you'd just have to keep toddlers away from the stair/railings
