The menu is different from "the usual". It is wonderful. The atmosphere is pleasant and they have a nice patio. Service is pretty good as well. Prices are upwards of $15 per plate.

This restaurant never disappoints. Everything I have eaten here has been great. They always have great seafood, steaks and my husband loves their pork chop. The dinner menu is pricier, but lunch is more mid-range. Their house made rosemary chips are so good.

Sophia's is one of the nicer places in town to go for dinner or a special occasion. It can be busy, but it's location usually ensures that it's not a madhouse (inside and outside) like some of the restaurants downtown. We went back last night...More

Sophia's is a very comfortable casual dining (they also do lunch) place to eat. We love to go there anytime. We love their patio in the summer that is mostly shaded and comfortable. Great for the family or with friends. They also have a Bocci...More

Typically we go here for our anniversary, but can also decide to go on the spur of the moment. Good parking. Food is very good. (The chef is into a wasabi thing right now and I don't like wasabi) Lots of options on the menu....More
