Stopped mid afternoon for a late lunch. We split the Rodeo Cheeseburger with home made fries. Yummy. Also had the boneless chicken bites which were a nice addition. reasonably priced.

Under new management! Great environment. Friendly service from the front of the house to the server who did a wonderful job! Good food, good beer selection, and plenty to do! Stop on in, we will return!

We went to the Sideline Sports Bar for the first time to meet friends and had a great evening. Beer prices were very reasonable and the chicken nachos that we shared were excellent. The staff was friendly and efficient. We look forward to returning!

So disappointed. Ordered a wine and it came in a plastic cup. Sorry, wine should never be served in a plastic cup.

Better than fast food but not by much. My meal was warm and not hot when served at my table with 3 friends. I got the impression that it sat aside after preparation waiting about ten minutes for another dish for our table. Not a bad place to meet friends but just average for food and service

A standard sports bar with all the tv's, etc. Great service excellent food. Chase the manager was awesome. Ribs were great, burger fantastic coleslaw was fresh and the fries were the best I have ever had. We also come frequently for the seafood on Friday night. Coconut shrimp and the fish are very good.
