Burgers are always very good. Fried pickles and Onion rings are a must but one thing you have to get are the Leprechaun Fries! You can make these a meal all by themselves if you wish plus their beer selection is the best in the...More

Sonka's has been a popular place for people to gather in Terre Haute for drinks and food. The food is your standard bar fare and meals - good but not fine dining. But it's the atmosphere that brings people back and the friendliness.

Sonka's is a great place for lunch...fish sandwich is the best in town. Always greeted with a smile and friendly hello as you enter the door. Will definitely go back.

We visited because of a tripadvisor review and found it to be quaint and had a very diverse menu. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cold beer and hot food. Probably noot a family atmosphere but they do have a family room.

Did not expect to eat in Terre Haute but traffic and construction deemed otherwise. This was an unexpected surprise. An Irish pub/college hang out. There seemed to be some good menu items although surprisingly no fish and chips per se although all the ingredients were...More

Glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again. Some times the students can be a little loud but usually they are well behaved. Just part of what we hope is an overall pleasant experience.
