The owner/chef always took pride in his restaurant and the food he served. Now it's closing. Nothing more to say.

Every time I go to the SideCar I think about how many people are missing out. I love to go when the live jazz music is playing. The food is seasonal and fresh from the farm. The menu is inventive. Always a treat!

We had a party of 9 that went to the SideCar Restaurant for dinner. We were a little nervous about the location since it was off beat and path and looked a little sketch. But, pleasantly surprised with the ambiance. Our waitress was fun and she made the holiday meal a wonderful experience. It was a pre-set menu, but the... More

The location is convenient on Main Street. The food is fancy and upscale. Sitting in an old train would definitely appeal to those who love trains. The prices are a bit high, but it's a fun place on special occasions.

The menu is just on plain paper, not impressed by that all. The menu choices are strange (unique) . If your open minded about menu choices, this is a nice place to... More

We live about 3 minutes away from the SideCar, but it sort of looked closed every time we drove by... looks can be deceiving! They are open for lunch 5 days, dinner 6 days, and the weekend brunch is STELLAR! My wife and I finally decided to just drive into the small parking lot in back and walk in on... More

About 14 of us went for dinner to celebrate a 50th anniversary - at the table we had the filet, sea bass, ribs, salmon and someone even had a goat ragout. I didn't taste all of them, but they were all beautifully presented, and everyone finished their plates. We brought our own wine, and the staff was quite happy to... More
