“Everything was Good!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

This is kind of like a road house or the corner neighborhood place that the locals all hangout, would probably be a better description. The food was homemade. I had Shrimp Gumbo and a Muffuletta, and they were both very tasty. Service is ok, but you don't go to this place for service, you go for the food and the experience. It was like stepping into a time machine and going back to the 1940's or something. The place really has character. It was cool...

“A Must Visit for Dining”

We get over to Sonny's every time we visit Galveston. Try the Spagetti Taco Salad, it is a Texas Original! Great prices, great food, a GREAT family owned place.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

Sonny's is a great dive in a residential neighborhood close to the Strand. My burger and fries was awesome. Spouse had chili which he said was good, but he shoulda got it with onions. Waitress suggested buying a pitcher of beer as it would be cheaper if we were going to have multiple beverages. Received food quickly and it was HOT! Funky bar ambience. You may get a complementary joke when you pay your bill. Loved the Elvis pinball machine. They have another pinball machine, a REAL shuffleboard table, and a pool table. NO CREDIT CARDS but they do take checks. They had no hours posted but it was very slow when we were there on a Saturday and after we left they closed for a few hours. I highly recommend Sonny's if you are not a fancy pants and you can enjoy a neighborhood bar & grill.
