Great Burgers

This a very quaint little spot more like a pub with good food. The burgers were GREAT and they have a house salad that was so delicious with fresh greens and pears top with cashews and finished with a house dressing. Tasted great!! The prices were a little high for what it is and where it is but... read more

This locally owned pub serves up the best food in town! (must try their signature salad!) Service is great & the atmosphere is "cool" being that it holds a mere 50 people at tables & a long bar. Several draft beers, yummy burgers, and the BEST poutine you will find in Ontario! This restaurant is on the waterfront so dine... More

We just got back from this restaurant, and OMG it's fantastic!! My daughter had the best burger she ever had in her entire life! (well, other than homemade), as she stated. The Tetrazini meal was very good, and very much enjoyed by my husband! Even the classic fish & chips meal I extremely enjoyed! Basically, we've got our values worth!... More

Smallish place in downtown Sarnia. Food was delicious and staff excellent and friendly. St.Clair riverfront across street as well as specialty boutiques.

Great place to go for lunch and dinner. The food is good and the service is good too. We have been here with larger groups (10 or so) and unless you get the big table at the back it is kind of awkward but the staff is accommodating.

One of my favourite places. The chef makes some of the best wings from Sirache Coconut and Lime to Lemon Pepper to Jalapeno and Cheddar ... The Wonton Nachos are amazing as well. Great place for some drinks, food and atmosphere with friends.

Every meal we have had here has been fantastic. They have a great selection of craft beers and the chicken wings and salads are amazing! The service is good and the atmosphere is ok too. Only thing I would change is to make it bigger, there never seems to be enough tables.

My daughter and I visited Sideways for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised! I'm not a fan of poutine, however, I ordered Philly Cheesesteak Poutine and it was delicious - not heavy on the fries and gravy, just right and topped with delicious shaved prime rib, cheese curds and horseradish sauce - certainly tickled the taste buds!!!

Met with a friend for dinner and conversation. Service was adequate at first, as only 2 tables were used, but as the evening progressed and the restaurant filled, the service slowed noticeably. Beef curry dish was a little bland, but plentiful, soup was too thin and not very tasteful, nachos were fantastic. Bottom line, get the nachos.
