It was an okay dinner, This is not the type of restaurant where you couldn't get it anywhere else. It just was an average place to go out to eat.

Great location on Main Street near Mariott and Poinsett Hotels. This is one of the top 3 restaurants we have visited in Greenville and doubt if we have missed but a few after living there for 10 + years. Great food and service. Upstairs seating can get a little loud or smokey at times.

I gave Soby's a very good rating based on the Chef's ability to turn average food into an incredible event. My husband and I shared two appetizers, the tuna and the calamari. Both were good, but not special. The sauce with the calamari was excellent, but the rings were cut oversized, which made them chewy. The tentacles were better. Tuna was very good, but again, sliced a bit thick which would be more consistent with an "Applebys". I had the duck entrée, and although it tasted amazing, most of it was raw inside. Not rare, raw. It was a shame, because it would have been one of the top duck dishes I had ever had. The brussel sprouts were excellent, but again, way undercooked, not even close to al dente. My husband had the pork tenderloin and he said it was very good, cooked perfectly. Dessert was delicious. We had the special cheesecake and the banana cream pie. Both were top drawer. Service was very good and the atmosphere was wonderful. Putting certain things aside, it is definitely one of the top restaurants in Greenville. We will return to eat there again.

Went with business partner. Had the mussels and the fried green tomatoes for appetizers. Mussels were what you'd expect from this class of restaurant, good but not exceptional. Fried green tomatoes were very good.

The hangar steak was very good quality and cooked to perfection. It lacked the flavor I would have expected. The waiter touted the house marinade as being excellent.

Great looking restaurant and average service.

I'd try somewhere else on next trip.
