We rented a house directly across the street from Somnys, and came over for lunch. Really good gumbo, spaghetti, hamburgers everything. The beer is cold cold, and the family atmosphere is wonderful. Highly recommend.

Our group of 5 was turned off by the wait time at a waterfront restaurant on Saturday night and went to Sonny's for dinner. We all enjoyed a shrimp bun (some chose "dressed" and I liked "undressed". The shrimp were delicious, not overdone, with homemade tartar sauce. Servers are friendly and only locals seem to know about this place. Highest recommendations.

We went on a Friday evening. Luckily they have gumbo on Friday! Delicious fresh shrimp and friendly waitstaff. Happy hour daily from 5 to 730 for really cheap beer. Good place to spot the locals and soak in the flavor. Portions were just right, but the price is a little steep for such a hole in the wall. They had raised prices since the menu I found online. Pool tables and shuffleboard for.a little something extra to enjoy.

Been eating at Sonny's for decades. The place sure doesn't look like much from the outside and even less on the inside but the hamburgers, fries and chili can't be beat. This has been the hangout for the UTMB crowd for as long as I can remember and you can't find a better place for cold beer and great fried fare.
