Have been there, with family 3 times. Enough variety to keep kids and grandkids happy. The fried seafood was perfect and the hamburgers were large. Service was good and other customers were jovial. Desserts were large enough for 2. Prices were very fair. Beer is cold and has restaurant access for handicap. Large dining area. Only down side is that... More

When a place is packed at 2 p.m. on a Monday, you know you're in for a treat. Southside Cafe did not disappoint. Filled with locals, we were still able to get a table quickly, and service was great.

This is like the NCO Club, of the Navy or UMSC base, food is good and a happy place. Good place to take the kids and see all the photos and items on the wall. Lots of history in the building of the USA. Staff is friendly also. Lots of good parking. Owen by a combat USMC

Everything we had was awesome. I had the spinach & artichoke dip, the absolute Best I have ever had. My sister in law had the Brisket Burger and she said it was undeniably the best burger she ever had. Don't miss Wednesday nights, $4 appetizers & all Burger toppings are free. And, by the way, Joe was an awesome waiter!

Never a bad choice at this place. Love their steak-on-salad dish, but got the tuna and it was excellent. Place was packed for a weekday lunch, and everybody is here. You can't go wrong with Southside.

Really good onion rings. The steaks on steak night are delicious and filling. The poboys are very good.
