    We always love the food and atmosphere at Sophie's! They have gluten free buns, which for me is a big deal! Plenty of food choices for all, and I love to watch its' many successes!

    Food presentation and customer service was good! But the ribs WERE NOT cooked all the way through, you really need to take your time with ribs no short cuts. The pulled pork lacked seasoning. I wish the food tasted as good as it looked.

    Excellent BBQ. We had the BBQ platter, and the pulled pork. Tender, juicy ribs. The sides are outstanding: cornbread, slaw, collard greens, but the baked beans are insanely good. And the service is very friendly. This restaurant was just awarded Best Of the Main Line 2022. It very much deserves that award.

    The food and service were equally excellent. I normally do Italian dining on Mother's Day; however, I decided to change up and was pleasantly surprise. I will venture to Sophie's again for the food.

    Great food and service. It’s a byob. There’s a store conveniently few doors over that sales libations. Great music. All around good spot and it’s barbecue is the best I’ve had since leaving Richmond, Va. Sophie’s BBQ is a highly recommended venue in my book. We will be sure to revisit! Lastly, make sure you try the Mac and Cheese! Not a regret! 🥄🥄🥄🥄🥄

    Anniversary dinner in Wednesday night. Decor was great and felt cozy! Our server did a great job selling the food. Definitely lived up to the hype. The chicken sandwich, Mac & cheese, and wings are why I will be back!

    Vibe was awesome and staff was super nice. Waited about 40 minutes for main course even though there were only a handful of tables seated. The coleslaw was awesome as was the white bama sauce but meat and fries were over cooked to the point That food tasted mostly like grease. I had high hopes-

    This was my and my husband's first time at Sophie's and once we just looked at the menu we knew were going to come back--so many good things to choose! And once we actually ate the food, it was a no-brainer. Definitely would recommend. And the sweet potato hush puppies...I could eat those for dessert all the time!
