Always friendly, welcoming staff. Always good food! Anything from m burgers to perch to salads, the good is good. One of our favorites is to sit at the bar and have a couple of appetizers for our evening meal.

This place is awesome! The food, happy hour and staff are one of the best. It is really cool if you can sit next to the fireplace

There's outdoor seating for a gathering on a perfect day. There's a fireplace indoors for a cosy dinner on a chilly Michigan winter night. There's a bar area separate from the restaurant area, which keeps the noise level lower for those there to dine.

Cool historic building in Ypsi’s Depot-town. Awesome beer list. Fantastic burgers and other sandwiches. Indoor and outdoor seating. Just steps away from the train tracks— you can feel the rumble when a train goes by.

The Sidetrack is a must visit. The historic setting alongside a railroad track in Ypsilanti is amazing all by itself, but the food and beer choices will impress you even more. Great fun place!

These burgers are messy and delicious. I would not recommend these burgers for your first Match.com date....LOL! We had a chicken caesar salad too, it was delicious. Excellent selection of beers on draft.

Great local place in Depot Town area for food and drinks. This place is versatile enough in its atmosphere that it can comfortably host families, couples, friends and/or business colleagues out for drinks all in the same restaurant. Any place that can manage that reflects...More
