I stopped over to Sophia's due to the proximity to the BJCC and found the staff friendly and food served fairly quickly. That was when my hopes went a bit south. The burger would have qualified as excellent if they hadn't put some onion powder...More

Sophia and her husband just sold this little jewel. Her brother will continue to work there, and he has an amazing talent of making sure the order is right. I eat there every other month or so, and they always have very good, fresh food,...More

It's on the Northside, next to the Courthouse and within walking distance of the Sheraton and Weston where the food is seriously over priced and lackluster. There were about 20 in our group for lunch on a day they were also serving jurors. It was...More

Stayed around the corner at the Sheraton Inn whose breakfast was outrageously priced, so one morning I called in an order at Sophia's, walked and picked up my food, and ate it at a park across the street. The omelet and grits were delicious and...More

Been eating here for years and never disappointed. Good hours only one block from BJCC. Cooked to order but grills always hot. Few things ready behind the glass like salads but their amberjack sandwich is my fav. Worth the short walk!

This little diner has a walk-up order station and is small, but efficient. The food appears to be homemade and is flavorful. The hotdogs with onions remind me of the best of NYC, and the pancakes are fluffy, hot, and more than one person could...More

I went twice to this deli the last two Saturdays. It is a great choice for lunch. Most things are closed on Saturday, so this is a convenient place when you are at the BJCC. I had a cheeseburger and fries. Everyone enjoyed their food....More

The restaurant at my hotel was closed so I asked hotel staff for a recommendation. This place was within walking distance, reasonably priced, and the food was tasty. Probably not the healthiest fare, but good nevertheless.
