This is a college town bar and restaurant. Burgers and fries, sandwiches, pizza etc. The ambiance is much better than the (average) food. It really is right next to a sidetrack and AMTRAK trains go though several times a day. An outside courtyard (see Pic) is right next to train tracks. If you have kids, sit there.

Not bad food. Good but uninspired. $8.95 for burger w/o cheese and fries. Recommend the sweet potato fries, the regular fries were a little greasy. Service is great but slow. I was told the kitchen is small and get's backed up during peak times.

I'll go back but only if I'm in the neighborhood.

We had a very enjoyable hamburger and beer lunch at the Sidetrack. Beautiful wooden bar, very old Michigan ambiance. Sweet potato fries really good.

My wife and I went here for the first time on 7/25/13. I opted for the burger since they were voted one of the 10 best burgers in the U.S. I can say it did not dissapoint! I went for the plain, classic burger and it was great! Fresh meat, juicy and delicious.

The service was excellent as well. We sat on the outside patio and really enjoyed it. Fantastic beer selection!

Its a very busy and noisy restaurant. The trains go by frequently, which is fun, but noisy. The food was good burger fare. Do not expect quiet or secluded dining.

Had the Mac's burger - with Mac and cheese on it & my husband had a burger with a la carte toppings. the buns are amazingly soft and the burgers stayed hot throughout the lunch. Definitely the best burger either of us has ever had. Great selection of beers on tap as well. Wonderful ambience - but beware - the train passes within a few feet of this restaurant and can scare the heck out of you!
