Only because I belong to a group that meets here once a month do I go to Sonoma's. There's nothing awful, but there are better places to go. My group routinely brings 30+ patrons in, on the same night of every month, and frankly, I don't get the feeling Sonoma's is all that thrilled about it, even though we fill... More

My wife and I went to Sonomas to meet up with a friend to listen to a popular local band on a Friday night. We ordered onion rings, hot wings, and crab dip appetizers to start. The onion rings were cold, greasy, and soggy. The crab dip had the smell of old fish. Fresh crab should have no odor, or... More

We were looking for a local place to have a drink and some good food and found it here. It is a good bar, a lot of TVs playing sports, the drinks were all good and not weak, and the patrons and staff very nice. Their mussels, shrimp and brisket were very good. We'll stop in again next time we're... More

We went to this restaurant/bar mid afternoon. Our grandson was playing in a School of Rock presentation. Because of this, they were extremely crowded with parents and performers. We ordered food and beers. The server was clearly very busy because of the standing room only crowd, but very efficient and friendly. I had a combination platter of smoked brisket and... More

We tried Sonoma's for the first time and sat outside on the patio. The menu had lots of sandwiches that appealed to us, but we got a turkey burger and a cheese steak sandwich. Both were delicious--juicy and tasty! The prices are really reasonable, too. The people who were outside at the time were all very friendly. Many were regulars... More

Nice setting, relaxed, and low key. Food is average bar fare and drinks are ok. A good hang out not exciting.

This really is a great bar - loads of atmosphere, really friendly owner and staff and great live music. Whether you're on your own to watch the game over a beer, in for after-work refreshments or out with friends for dinner, this place works really well. Attentive owner and really friendly staff who are always pleased to see regulars.

Sonoma's offers a good happy hour. $2 off all drinks be it drafts, wine mixed drinks etc. There are also about a half dozen food specials. There was a good crowd, with several large tables perhaps co-workers going out together.

Me and a friend went there a week ago for dinner. It was trivia night and the crowd was definitely in to drinking and playing. We wanted dinner so I ordered buffalo wings and calamari, my favorite appitizers as a dinner. The wings were almost tasteless but had heat and when mixed with the bleu cheese dressing for dipping had... More
