Daaaaamn, SOHO, where have you been all my life? A family friend told me they have the best chicken & waffles in town, but I'd just never made it over to try them. On our six-month marker, my boyfriend surprised me with dinner here; because it was a Tuesday night, we were seated quickly, & though there were a few other tables filled, the ambiance was generally quiet & low-key. We split the Jalapeno hushpuppies served with "comeback sauce," which our served described as "Probably a mix of mayo & ketchup?" It was better than it sounds, I promise, & the hushpuppies were perfect - lightly spicy, very crispy, & not too dry, like hushpuppies sometimes are. We were also served a few pieces of fresh, hot bread with house-made seasoned butter & some kind of jam (I forget what kind) that I would've eaten with a spoon if it were an option. Needless to say, we were carbed-up & happy by the time our meals arrived, but we'd left plenty of room for dinner. And good thing! My boyfriend ordered his fried chicken "evenin' style," served with mashed potatoes, braised collards, & sausage gravy; I,. of course, ordered mine "mornin' style," with a rosemary waffle & Ohio maple syrup. The other option, which I'd love to try, is "late-night style," with pulled pork mac 'n' cheese, & smoked cherry bbq sauce. I KNOW, RIGHT? They're all served with boneless chicken - a breast & a thigh. I don't like dark meat, & getting it with all-white meat wasn't an option, so my boyfriend & I swapped - all-white for me, all-dark for him. A good trade, but I wish I could've just ordered it the way I wanted it. That said, everything was delicious. The waffle was hot & soft, & the chicken was perfectly done, with the crispy coating so fresh that it was sliding off of the meat. I was too full to eat all of it, but I took one of the breasts home for leftovers the next day. Just as good afterward! SOHO has a number of interesting-sounding items on their menu that I'd love to go back to try - but honestly, the mornin'-style chicken was so tasty that I don't know if I could bring myself to order anything else! Minus one star for the very slow service, because only one server seemed to be working that night, & she was also playing hostess - crazy! Though she was very friendly & accomodating, the fact that she was flying solo meant the service was understandably under par. I'd still go back, but I hope they don't make a habit of being so understaffed.

Had dinner at Soho last night with on old buddy. In the course of trying new eateries in Cleveland, I have added SOHO to my "Absolutely Going Back" list. Made a very satisfying meal of appetizers. The staff was pleasant and upbeat, the food was great and the atmosphere very mellow and comfortable. It's a pity there are so many entitled, dainty, effete whiners in this town. ALWAYS ignore a 1-star rating. If I lived closer, SOHO would be my "go-to" place. (Value Added; SOHO is right next door to Mitchell's where you can snag a pint of their unbelievable Tiramisu ice cream...)

Fantastic--the food, the service, the atmosphere. Well worth a stop for brunch or dinner. Chicken-scratch Wednesdays are fantastic if you want real southern pan-fried chicken--but be warned, the spicy is SPICY! We've taken small kids there, and larger groups, no problem. Cocktails are different, inspired, and delicious.

Great atmosphere and service. Fried green tomatoes were the best I have had. Also enjoyed the deviled eggs, bloody mary, and po boy. Mom is from South Carolina and thought it was better than almost all of the southern cooking restaurants in Charleston. Will be back.

This is my new jam on Wednesdays. Spicy chicken with waffles. Side of mac & cheese. Sweet, spicy, savory all up in your mouth, like a Busta Rhymes video.

Came for brunch with some older folks and no one was disappointed. Authentic Southern food and very reasonably priced. Will return.

Very good atmosphere. It is truly a Cleveland secret. i hope they can stay open for a while. It seems like they don't have business a lot but the food and drinks are excellent and reasonably priced (on the higher scale).

Great food, service, location and atmosphere. Looks great inside and out, but we love it outside in the nice weather.
