If you want to have real fresh seafood, this is the place to visit. Friendly atmosphere, gets crowded in warm and hot weather. Simple food, little pricey, you get the real taste. Shrimp is so fresh. Worth visiting

We keep winding up here. Great place for fried seafood. Lightly breaded. Tastes fresh and nicely cooked. Super casual atmosphere. Friendly staff. Diving salvage objects by the front door have some cool history. I liked the bread pudding.

The waterside dining in our area is so limited, but Sono has it. We have even taken our boat,down th river to dock and dine there. Food is good even if it’s served on plastic plates. Friendly service at fair prices.

I have been eating here since 1979 and I definitely see it has gone a bit down in those years. You used to get the freshest seafood here and everything was plain but good. The last time my fish and chips was a bit chewy...More

I've been to dinner there several times and have never seen dogs on the patio. I would recommend making a phone call. That would be your best bet.
