The food was delicious. The service was great. The green bean are the best in town. The food was hot. The severing size was so big I had enough for a snack later that night. The waitress was very friendly. The restaurant was very clean. It was a great experience.

We visit Sonny's whenever we travel as we do not have one close to home. We were visiting in the area and since it was nap time for my grandson, we decided to do something different and called ahead for a to go order. It was ready when we arrived and was hot and packed up waiting for us.

Horrible service, and a manager who could care less. What's not to like? Atmosphere just OK, but over-priced for the quality of food and service. I went here over six months ago, and said I'd never be back because the service was so bad. (I will not write a review with only one bad experience. Things do happen.) So tried... More

We had heard how good this barbecue was so we tried a combo of all their entrees. It was good, but we were a bit disappointed with the food. We have not gone back to give it a second chance, which may not be quite far.Pricing seemed fair enough for this type of food.

I love Sonny's BBQ. I have been eating their BBQ for 25 years and never miss a chance when back in Florida. This location did not disappoint. Prompt, friendly service, plenty of food and a sweet tea to-go at meals end. Great!

I'm never disappointed at Sonny's! The service is always friendly, and the foot hot and delicious. The baby backs are the best I've ever had. I also like the salad bar, so many options up there.
