Delicious food and wine menu at one of the "original" downtown Greenville restaurants from before downtown was popular. Very classy atmosphere with an open kitchen. The duck is phenomenal.

Visited the restaurant with friends. Great meal with wide variety of selections. Desserts worth waiting for but large enough to share. Varied selection of microbrews. Did not see wine list but friends enjoyed their selections.

Really enjoyed the beet salad with goat cheese and marcona almonds. I ordered a crab cake with it and a glass of sauvignon blanc. Dined al fresco on a lovely evening downtown. Very enjoyable!

We have been customers of Soby's for years, enjoying their brunch buffet or dining before Peace Center events. The food is consistently good and the ambiance is congenial.
