Friendly staff and great food

A cool bar in Ypsie right near the train tracks! Had a fun night here with good friends, great staff, easy bar menu and good beer! All that makes for a good night out!

Very large assortment of brews. It's a very popular place thus prepare for a wait to get a table on weekends at least. They do have outdoor seating which helps. It does get crowded but the food has always been good. Large selection of beers and you won't be disappointed with the burger. Caution, the strawberry shortcake for dessert is... More

For me and my family one of the best burgers in town, we love the fries, we go very often to Sidetrack, but one point they really need to pay attention is the delayed to bring your food! Sometimes food come in minutes but most of the times we need to wait a really long time to get the food... More

All of the food I've had was good and the portions large. I love that they have Woodchuck hard cider on tap. The giant strawberry shortcake is great but don't order it for less than four people. The service is good but it gets loud and you are packed in.

The Sidetrack is consistently good: Delicious food, friendly service, and happy atmosphere. We've been there for Happy Hour, birthday celebrations, for a warm cup of soup on a cold day, and lunch on the patios in the summer. Best burger around, and don't pass up the onion rings!

We came in with a group of 15 and they were great. It's noisy enough that the younger kids don't bother others. At least that's my working theory. I have never has a bad meal there. Everything is great. Love this place!

I was at Frenchies/Sidetracks a few months ago for a company holiday party. Unfortunately as fun as the night was and as great as the food was the planning process was absolutely awful. Jessica, the woman in charge of scheduling events I believe has zero customer service skills. While trying to book, Jessica was extremely impatient, rude and always seemed... More

I finally visited this restaurant after hearing about it for years. I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't come sooner! The burger was fantastic and I was able to get a gluten free bun which tasted amazing. The sweet potato fries with the horseradish sauce were unbelievably good - I've thought about them several times since we visited and can't... More

The first time I ate here, I ate on the patio. I know this place is supposedly famous for hamburgers, but I wasn't hungry for one that day. I don't remember what I got, but I was not impressed. A few years later (and some months ago from today), I went there again. This time I ate inside and got... More

What a great place. The service was very good. The waitress brought us crackers and orange slices for our toddlers. That was just what they needed to settle down. Wine Wednesday - yummy glass of wine half price. Lots of craft beer choices. Then the food came. We ordered regular burgers and black bean burgers. My regular burger was the... More
