Casual dining with interesting food

The restaurant is so casual and laid back you may not be expecting the high-quality food that comes from the kitchen, suitable for a fancy restaurant. It is fun to visit here and see what there is to eat. Even ordinary sounding things like quesadillas come out like something you've never had... read more

My wife and I had lunch there. I had the thai chicken salad and she had the chicken sandwich. Both were well made and tasty but lacked wow factor. The salad comes with way too much greener and the chicke sandwich was well made but uninspired. The chips and fries and were great and their house-made iced tea is really... More

A go to brunch spot or if you are just in the mood for a coffee and delectable desert. The charming decor that is vintage chic, is what captivates my attention. Their dishes always have a twist - I highly recommend the Huevos Rancheros; they make a delicious creamy avocado sauce to add a rich taste to the crunch of... More

The food here really is fantastic. It's fresh, creative, portions are large and there really is something for almost everyone. The fried brussel sprouts are a fave and all the deserts are awesome. The English Muffins with fresh preserves is a must try. It's a very casual atmosphere where you order at the counter, grab your own silverware and fruit... More

I was recently there for lunch. I had the caprese salad and it came with some of the biggest tomatoes I've ever seen in a salad. Also had a cup of soup--surprisingly, I could not finish it all. My friends had a chicken pot pie, which was a special, and they were really pleased with that choice.

Beautiful new location with much more space inside and out. Nice patios and umbrella tables with the same friendly service and great food. Very nice menu with lots of choices. I noticed the white lights, but went there for lunch, must be beautiful at night.

It would be easy to miss Sideboard if you didn’t know it was there. It’s a fairly small restaurant in a converted historical house. Much of the seating is outdoors at the side and back of the house. The décor is eclectic. We enjoyed sitting outside on the back patio for lunch recently. You order at the counter and the... More
