“Hands down, Best Bar in Oregon District!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

This is one of my favorite bars to visit. The patio is AWESOME, staff is cute and fun, and the food is good and reasonably priced. However, I think you should add a few more apps to your menu like Cheese Sticks! Great beer selection and they have $2 beer specials on Thursdays. If your ever in the Oregon District, this is a fun place to pop in!

“Good food, unsavory staff behavior”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

My daughter took me here for dinner after I told her that Sidebar would be too sophisticated for what I was wearing. Dinner and service were fine, except for the foul language of the staff seated at the bar, within earshot of our table. When one of the bartenders was talking about farts, how "everytime he grows a new mole he squeezes it off", and roughhousing with the other bartenders, I was appalled. I'm even told that he is the proprietor's son! I would expect more respect from an employee, much less a family member. It made an otherwise enjoyable meal completely unappetizing.

Next time I'll go to Sidebar.

“Good local flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

This is a good local place with a decent beer selection and great local flair. The bands can be hit or miss but they are always interesting. Probably the best patio in Dayton,with heaters and a bonfire! It can get smoky at times. Best of all, the house in the back can be rented out very reasonably for parties and it has its own bathroom. Never eaten here.

“Decent bar with good choices of beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

I come every 1st Weds of the month for their beer tastings. The beer is good, and they change it up constantly. The food is decent and valued good also. The service can be slow when it gets packed as they only have like 3-4 servers, so if you need a drink, go to the bar. Other then that, enjoyable.
