Sovereign restaurant deserves its own section in this article because of its food. Our experience there has been great each time, and the staff continues to be friendly despite being busy. The restaurant opened its doors in 2014 and vowed never to serve frozen food. I love Sovereign’s list of craft beers as well as wine. It’s important to note that the restaurant utilizes local food when creating new menu items. I recommend giving Socereign a try, and I encourage others to make reservations.
