We stopped in for the first time on a Thursday for lunch. We were seated right away, and our server was on top of everything. I had the Kevin Bacon burger, which was great. I prefer my bacon a little crispier, but that did not detract from the experience at all. Although I did not have a beer this visit,... More

We had dinner here and we're not impressed. Tables inside were very small and service wasn't that great. Lots and lots of staff but, just socialising with themselves. Nice location but, not a return for our family and we are local folks. I had to put cheese on my own burgers when they came. Not a good expirence.

Love this place, we eat here often! The hippie sliders are so good, as are the southwest eggrolls. Just a heads up, they don't have the most comfortable of seating and some tables are reeeeeally close together- as in, you'll be rubbing backs with the person sitting behind you. That being said, it's a solid choice for a nice lunch... More

We have been wanting to try this place for years, and finally got the opportunity to do just that. Started with drinks (beer for me and a superb martini for my Fiancé) and appetizers, fried avocado and split a bowl of chili and both were great. Ordered dinner and my Fiancé got the pot roast which she said was phenomenal,... More

Menu is always creative, always changing, always delicious. Beer and mixed drinks are always current with season and great choices. The menu ranges from burgers/bar food to fine dining, whatever you are in the mood for but never at fine dining prices.

Great ambiance, food and service. I just wish they had a domestic light beer on tap. Convenient, free parking is also a big plus. Everyone talks about the burgers but I think the steak is among the best anywhere.

This is a very good late night restaurant/bar. The menu is typical grill food but the burgers are very good. They have a good craft beer selection and a outdoor patio. If you need somewhere to chill late at night, go to Sidetracks.

This was my first trip to Sidetrack and I was definitely impressed. My wife and I both ordered the traditional burgers, which we were able to customize to our liking with a wide variety of topping choices for a small additional fee. The fries were hand cut which immediately puts them on another level. There was a solid variety of... More
