I work in the area and would go to this restaurant at least once a week for lunch. Service was excellent and food always good. Pulled in last Monday (July 8) and was very sad to see it was CLOSED. A small sign in the window said "Closed for Renovations". We all know what that means in the restaurant business.... More

This is a brightly light, welcoming, and friendly family place. The BBQ is wonderful and the salad buffet is amazing. But come on who goes to a BBQ joint for Salad. You should here. Get a side of ribs and then dive into that glorious spread of diverse offerings in the salad bar. It's a bargain! Granted I didn't care... More

Take out will only allow 2 small packages of BBQ sauce per sandwitch. What a cheap way to run a restaurant. I will never go there again!

Kitchen was slower compared to other Sonny's restaurants. Chicken on one person's meal came out burned. Seems as if kitchen was having issues this particular day. Other than that, food was good. Server was good.

A little pricier than other FLA Sonny's but food was good. Nice service as place was pretty empty. Not honoring phone coupons was a dissapointment.

I have Celiac disease and I've been to other Sonny's locations that gladly helped with food allergies. They failed to cater to our needs since the cook refused to prevent cross-contamination by just baking a batch of french fries in the oven. I was with a group of people with the same food allergies. It was just a simple request...... More
