Always great!

It is always a treat to have lunch at Side Kicks because JD always seems to have an interesting chalk board filled with the daily specials. We consistently great a good meal at a very reasonable price.

Always lots to eat and great homemade food. Plenty of room for a large crowd or small tables for two. Definitely a must if you are in the area for Sunday breakfast. Don't forget to try the eggs bennie!!!

Sidekicks is the best place in town for bacon and eggs. The place is always packed and closes early afternoon. A great, old fashioned dining experience.

Thanks for the kind review, we LOVE making breakfast! (FYI, it's pretty quiet from 6 to 8 AM, just in case you are in a hurry and need a quick fix before you start your day) More

We stopped in on a trip to Owen Sound. 45 minutes from order to food ( plus 5 minutes before ordering) for relatively simple egg dishes is beyond acceptable. The food was ordinary and bland. Staff were friendly and apologetic but it was still 45 minutes for eggs.

Sorry for the late response to your review in July. In June and July we welcomed 3 new staff members to our kitchen. We were also pleased to have received more visitors to our restaurant on the weekends than we have ever had before.Unfortunately we were not as well prepared for the crowds as we would have liked to have...

This is not a fancy place, but it's clean and the staff is extremely friendly. The coffee is excellent and delivered soon after you sit down. There are specials listed on a huge blackboard as well as a good selection of items listed on the menu. There were three of us. We each had something different and it was delivered... More
