“Nice food, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This place was recommended to us by some friends who live in Airlie Beach. Really nice food and reasonably priced. Staff are friendly, place is always quite busy. Seemed a popular spot.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

My wife and I were recommended this place recently on our trip to airlie beach we had breakfast there and besides not getting the order right the food wasn't that right either. I had the eggs benedict with salmon and it was very bland it tasted like the sauce could of came from a packet and the spinach was soggy, although the meals came out pretty quick and the staff seemed friendly

“Disappointed with the old pancakes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Have been to Sidewalk many times before and always rated it but not this time.
The pancakes were old and didn't taste nice at all. The egg Benedict was like we had ordered a serving of Hollindaise sauce with an egg on the side. Overpowering and when its from a packet you really don't want that much holliandase.
The only thing enjoyable was the tea.
No water on table so had to ask for that.
Waiters was nice and friendly though so that that a positive but
Sidewalk you need to pick up your game.
