It's Not Hard To Get Sidetracked

Whenever I travel to Michigan, I try to stop by some of my favorite watering holes. Sidetrack is a mainstay in Ypsilanti, located on the main drag in historic "Depot Town." Parking is generally abundant, which a couple of lots behind the restaurant, street parking and a lot across the street... read more

Neat little corner pub next to the train tracks. Great food! Beer battered pickles, pulled pork sandwich, chicken spinach feta quesadillas, crispy chicken strawberry salad and the brownie ice cream sundae. All was delicious. They have a nice tap and bottled beer selection and for scotch aficionados a selection of single malt scotches. There are 2 bars and the kitchen... More

Good all American food fixed in unique ways. One e.g., is a turkey burger topped with redskin mashed potatoes with cranberry sauce mixed in--all on a bun. Very filling. Good sweet potato fries. Huge menu--no time to list other offering. Good dinners and salads, not just burgers and sandwiches. There's a bar if you drink. The restaurant is large and... More

I took my mother out and we were sitting outside and I saw a mouse crawling around my feet. I screamed then I saw several running up and down the wall. Inside the building smells dank.

This is our all-time favorite restaurant in Depot Town. We have been there three times in the last month and every time we go it is packed! We like the busy atmosphere along with the mix of all age groups from college kids up to senior citizens. The food is fabulous. We have never been disappointed in anything we've ordered.... More

Weekends it's crowded, fun in summer on one of the patios. Many great beers on draft. Cheap eats which are delicious. Their fish & chips or BBQ sandwiches only in $10 range

Wide selection of bar food and full dinners. Great burgers and fries in a very busy bar and restaurant. Loved our waiter (Chance) who gave excellent service in spite of being very busy.

Great food & beer along with a friendly waitstaff makes this a very nice choice. Casual, comfortable dining whether you are inside or out. Nice menu with good selections from pub food to nice vegetarian selections. A couple of my favorites are the fried pickles, ham & cheese on a pretzel bun and the gazpacho. They also have a good...
