The food is okay, but it could take you anywhere five minutes to an hour to get the exact same order on the same day, placed within a few minutes of each other. I used to go there often with my run club, but we voted to find a different place due to the service. They still have good bands... More

I've been her several times for a girls night out and with my husband. The food can be great one time and then the next average to poor. I'm also a lover of good beer, but have been disappointed in their lack of craft beers or good beers in general.

Terrible service and the food was just ok. Ordered deep fried Mac and cheese and we were disappointed it was kraft.

Both times that my son and I ate here, the food was awesome! The jalapeno cheese sticks are out of this world!! I also love the Reuben with skinny buffalo fries!!! There is both indoor and outdoor dining. Friendly atmosphere too. Recommend!

The Flipside is a fun place to listen to music and enjoy good food! I've eaten here for both lunch and dinner and have always had a great meal! Enjoy outdoor dining on a beautiful spring or fall day!

I have lived in Clayton for 4 years. I have eaten at the Flip Side four times during those 4 years. I keep giving them another shot, but yet again they disappoint me. The food is good for the most part, but even that is not as good as it should be for the price. [$14 for two small crab... More

I love the flip side for drinks, live music and their hummus is delicious for a healthy snack. My last visit for lunch, I was disappointed with the Beef & Brie sandwich. The description said it came with sautéed onions, but it was red onions and I couldn't even bite through them. The onions in the rings were small and... More

I had wanted tilapia with baked apple salsa but they have not served it for months, thougt is still on the menu. Other members of our group had... More

On the road. Great bleu cheese burger, tasty Reuben (though a little low on saurkraut). Good fries. The fried green tomatos breading was generic, mass produced type, a downstroke. Does someone mass market fried green tomatoes? Excellent and interesting local microbrew beers available (1 each!). Reasonable prices. Passing through? Try this place!

A must-try for anyone who lives in Clayton. Surprises me how few locals know of The Flipside. Go - drinks and appetizers, full meal, late night for live music. Whatever you prefer. You are certain to enjoy! My favorites: portobello mushroom fries, nachos (caution: HUGE portion), steak with fresh, LOCAL vegetables. Lunch menu is excellent as well. There are a... More
