“Wonderful Bar and Menu”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

I decided to walk around Lake Merritt and find a place for lunch. I passed the Sidebar and liked the menu in the window. I was not disappointed. The sandwich I had included a salad. All ingredients were organic. Just delicious. That evening I took my daughter for drinks. It being the Christmas holidays, we decided to have a Tom and Jerry. The bartenders at the Sidebar are experts at making new drinks. Our Tom & Jerry was with homemade batter. It was a fantastic drink. I can not wait to visit Oakland again so I can return to the Sidebar for dinner and drinks!
