Cobb Lane Restaurant was a fine-dining restaurant located at 1 Cobb Lane in Southside. The owner and head chef at the time of closing was Jeff Stykowski.

The restaurant, which featured Southern cuisine, was established in 1948 by Virginia Cobb. It quickly became popular for its large shaded courtyard and quaint interior dining areas, as well as for its she-crab soup and other signature dishes. The street was renamed in Cobb's honor in 1982. The restaurant continued to operate under a sequence of new owners after her death in 1987.

After months of slow business beginning in 2008, Stykowski was forced to close the restaurant on January 31, 2009.
