Sonia's Seafood

7501 SW 8th St. Miami, FL 33144 | Sweetwater/Westchester/West Miami | 305-262-0878

Location Description:

With Jimbo's Place in the wind and the seafood shacks of yore so few and far between, Miami needs a place like Sonia's Seafood Bait & Tackle Restaurant. A fish market, bar, music venue, local's hangout and veritable shack of eccentricities, it's a Flagami mainstay. Diners can pick up fresh catches like red snapper, yellowtail, hogfish, mangrove, calamari, lobsters and langostinos - or sit a spell and get their fish grilled or fried and paired with soups, croquetas, black beans and rice and other classic fare. The atmosphere is lively and festive - particularly during happy hour. Don't be fooled by the divey decor, however, prices aren't rock bottom. Entrees range around $20 to $30, depending on your seafood selection. English speakers will stumble through, as it's all Spanish-speaking, all the time, but "pescado por favor" is simple enough. You want South Florida authenticity - here it is.
