First time visit to Plainfield, will definitely be back to visit Sovereign. Lots of good food options, and even more good beer options.

We stopped here on the way back from Bloomington. Although brunch was going on, we had lunch. Wait for tables, so we elected to sit at the bar, which was perfect because bartenders were very friendly despite being very busy and working with dizzying speed....More

Since we last ate at this place we have changed to a Vegan style of eating. Their menu said they have a Vegan option, so we decided to give it a try. I am sorry to say it was a disappointment all the way around....More

Great place. We like to find unique locally owned places. Sovereign has a good menu, FRESH food. The salads are amazing. Good service. Take time to savor the experience.

Sovereign never fails to have an excellent wait staff as well as food. The only reason they don't receive 5/5 stars from me is their high prices and the menu is consistently small and rotating with substitutions to the food "not recommended".

It was our first time there and was totally wowed! Beer selection was huge. My wife loved the Sangria. Their app's were great as well (tacos and brussel sprouts). The bar staff very attentive and informative.

The food was very good and I really enjoyed the setting downtown. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly not dry at all. Good selection of local beers as well. If your in the area definitely skip the chain places.

Yes, the noise is contained within, and with the loud music and customers talking loud, I would not conduct business.

The music is never "loud" here actually. I'm not sure why anyone would say that. I've held many conversations with people even engaging at other tables.
