Ate lunch there on a weekend and were seated right away. Loved the decor and their unique beer selection. Some toppings for the hamburger I had cost extra (i.e. tomatoes). The hamburger was very tasty and the garlic aioli sauce I had on it was excellent! Would definitely come back and try another dish.

We came here because of the reviews. They were right. Such a cool place with all the old decor. We tried lots of beers. Our favorite was the Alaskan Amber. Everyone's food was good and the service was great. It's a busy place so expect a wait, but it's a big place.

During January if you signed up online, you get a free burger on Mondays, so we went to Sidetract. On a cold night we were lucky as we were seated next to the fireplace. We both ordered the regular burger. There onion rings are great and you could not complain about the drinks. I had a 25 oz draft of... More

This popular restaurant has been around since the 1930's so you know they are doing something right. It was packed on a Saturday night. It can be a bit noisy but it's that kind of fun place. Service was friendly and good. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. The onion rings were obviously house made. I had a wrap... More

Saw this was a must-visit place for a great burger from Oprah. :) Lots of great, seasonal beers on tap and delicious burgers! Service was good though watch what toppings you order - you have to pay for each one. Would definitely go back because the burger was very tasty!

Salmon is as good as it gets. Fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced. Burgers are consistently worthy of their reputation. There is a story behind the moose. We were treated to great hospitality and thoughtful service.

A lot of great beers on tap and great bar food! Once in a while a train goes by and adds some great sound to the perfect atmosphere.
