“Great Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

We dined here on a recommendation from someone at our resort. We were very happy that we did. We dined outside on the patio and the place seems to stay pretty busy. We had the stuffed mushrooms which were delicious, as well as the beer batttered onion rings. Sandwiches were really good as well. We had the Caribbean Chicken, and the Rajun Cajun Burger was fabulous, I definitely recommend it. Chicken tenders were good too. The only thing that we didn't try that I wish we would have are their chicken wings. This place is definitely worth a visit if you're staying in the Pensacola Beach area.

“Great for watching a game... but not much else”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

My husband and I went here to watch the MLB playoffs game. We had asked our hotel for a recommendation of a fun place wtih good food and drinks to watch the game. They referred us to Sidelines. The TVs were great - pretty much every seat in the place faces a TV. We also liked that the tables each had their own speaker so you could choose which game you wanted to listen to. However, that's about where our positive remarks end. The food was greasy, heavy bar food (lots of fried things, burgers, wings, etc.), and the beer/cocktail list was very limited, no craft beers, no local brews, and only your typical mixed drinks. Our server was friendly and attentive, but we wouldn't return unless we were looking for a place to watch a game.

“still good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

I have been going to Sidelines for over fifteen years, and it is as good as ever. The only thing that has changed is the TVs. The food and service are still up to par. The only bad thing is if you do not get there early on game day you may be standing for a while, but your beer will be cold.

“ok for bar food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

LOTS of TVs, so great place to watch sports. Food was ok, bar food essentially. Service was ok. Not a place I'll quickly go back to, unless I decide to watch a sporting event!

“Better than most sports bars”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We were desparate to watch an MLB playoff game, so we needed to find somewhere showing it. We went to Sidelines which had a bunch of big screens as well as individual speakers at your table so you could choose what to listen to while eating. I was surprised that they actually had some veggies as side options, which doesn't happen a lot in bars. We both had chicken and both enjoyed our meal. They had garlic bread (1 slice orders) for a little extra and I thought it was awesome. Be aware that it is easier to get into the parking lot if you are heading East, otherwise you have to do some fancy manuvering.
