The service was just OK, but the dinner ended up being really great and a good value! I'd go back for sure!!

“great crack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

as you walk in it appears to be a smallish friendly pub, but as you walk past the bar you keep walking into other small areas with there own bar and tables to eat at. the food is real home cooked fresh produce. i had the roast of the day which was pork and came with mash and fresh veg with a cider gravey. all the staff were very friendly and the food was great. Price wise very good value when compared to other restaurants in Galway.
That impressed went back next day.
looking forward to returning to Galway and Sonny's bar will be the first place i eat.
