Went here on a weeknight and basically met my expectations. They have a fine selection of local beer. I tried one of the Amber locals and it was great. Moving onto food, I got the tom halvorson BBQ slaw burger which has burger, pork, slaw and BBQ sauce and sweet potato fries on the side. So the burger was not... More

Was a very casual place! Food was great! Everyone in our group was happy with their order! A server walking by even stopped to talk to us!

We had lunch at Sidetrack after cutting down our Christmas tree in December. We all ordered burgers, pop, beer, fries and sweet potato fries. The food was fantastic, service great, and beer cold. The kids anxiously awaited a train to pass by, but no such luck. I guess we will have to go back and visit again!

After several visits at various times, we are happy to see that the service is always great, the atmosphere is great inside even during winter, and the food is consistently great also.

Service is always attentive...Most of the food is good...homemade soups are very good. The burgers are good, but not worth $6.50. I've had better at other joints and cheaper The place can get noisy and hard to hear if you are trying to converse with your guest. It is cleaner to use the dumpster out back for your bathroom !...

Stopped here for a burger, hoping to catch the game at the same time. Really good burgers, fast and friendly service, but it was really hard to see the game on the one smallish tv in our section. Would definitely return, just not for the purpose of watching a game, and that's ok, now that I know. Nice atmosphere otherwise.

The burgers are seriously overrated! Just a basic burger, over cooked, nothing special. Best to try something else. We went twice and nothing changed. However, it is a fun place, good atmosphere, and if you just want a sandwich or similar type of food - its fine. If our expectations weren't high, we probably would have enjoyed it much more....

Recent evening spent with spouse and friends, as a get together for the Holidays. Waitress, "K C" was attentive, while not overbearing, allowing us time to catch up on conversation and the like. Once we placed our orders, everyone enjoyed their entrees. I had an Amtrak Burger, delicious and properly "medium"; a perch dinner was enjoyed by my wife (I... More

I just met some colleagues here for lunch and it was a crowded and upbeat atmosphere. It wasn't so loud the conversations were difficult but it wasn't quiet enough to make you self-conscious about other people hearing you. The waitstaff is professional and courteous. We had deep fried avocado as an appetizer and it was sensational. I would've taken a... More
