I went here with my husband for lunch. I had a pulled pork sandwich and french fries. My husband had a southwest chicken sandwich and a Greek salad. The food was well cooked and absolutely delicious.

I ate dinner here twice while staying in Sarnia. I hadn't tried poutine before, so I tried a different one each night. The brisket one was quite good but a little too rich and heavy for me--I couldn't finish it all. My favorite was the curry poutine. It was delicious and filling but not overly heavy--a real treat. I sat... More

We were driving through Sarnia looking for a non American chain restaurant to eat at. We saw Sideways Classic Grill and decided to give it a try. The food was good and the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our time here.

We have been to Sideways many times and it is always great! Excellent service, great food, and a great place to watch your game. We've gone there to watch, basketball, hockey, baseball, and football. We LOVE the chicken wings. We usually get the dry rub Sriracha, dill, or Jamaican Jerk. Order a Caesar! The flatbreads are yummy and you can't... More

Sideways was an enjoyable place to eat, friendly wait staff, good atmosphere, and great food... The dinner was awesome I had a Pear and Cashew Salad, and it was great. It arrived fast despite the place being so busy... I also enjoyed a couple of pints of locally brewed beer while I was waiting.

Awesome place for drinks and a bite or a full meal. The Caesar is nice and spicy. The classic burger is probably my favorite burger in town. The won ton chicken nachos are incredible and the poutines are tasty. Staff is great and the atmosphere is always good. Highly recommend

I love this spot, i remember when Steve was re-doing the place and we couldn't wait for it to open, now I have to go to get my fix, I almost always get the Malibu Chicken sandwich and the greens with pears and goat cheese however everything there is so very good! Gosh I may have to go out for... More
