Good Southern Cooking

We enjoyed the Crab and Artichoke Dip and the Boarding House Bread Basket was very good. For our entrees we had the Low Country Shrimp and Sausage and the Jambalaya Pasta. Both were tasty, but we would probably try something else from the good sized menu on a return visit. It was a busy night and... read more

They have a great happy hour with lots of great food specials. The wings are good, the bbq sliders are great, and there house made pickles are out of this world. Well worth the 8 block jaunt from King Street!!!!!!!

Southside has become a family favorite for dinner, especially on weekends. Its expansive menu with a Cajun touch and traditional southern cooking has been the draw. But we had not been there for lunch to enjoy a Po' Boy until last week. Thawing out from snowstorm Jonas, we found ourselves focused on tasting the well known New Orleans treat. Five... More

Always one of my favorite places to go. Happy hour is 6 days a week and runs until 7 pm. Great beer prices, half priced burgers and .75 wings. The wings are my favorite of any place in the area. There is also a great late night menu. If you're not interested in the bar the restaurant itself has a... More

The best handmade burger in oldtown. Half price at Happy Hr keeps the seats filled & campers coming back for round 2 . Choice of mashed or veggies or fries at $6 is a modern day steal

Southside is one of my favorite restaurants, it's cool and laid back. Also, it's not unusual to spot local well known faces like NHL players or governors there. Their menu is southern American inspired, and the food is always great! In addition, they run interesting special menus during holidays. I can highly recommend this restaurant whether you're looking for the... More

They have Cajun food in main dining area with great service. Excellent outdoor dining in good weather. Park on side streets or parking lot or you'll... More

There were soooo many delicious sounding items on the menu. My wife and I ate rather light but our meals did not disappoint. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Other members of the staff also stopped by to ensure we were being well taken care of. You will not be disappointed!!

A great local bar that treats its patrons like family! The food is fantastic and a game is always on! You can always find someone to chat with at the bar or if you would like your own party, dine in the dinning room!
