Great service and all, no complaints on that front, but the Pancho Villa burger should theoretically be spicy, and neither the pepper jack nor the jalapenos got me there.Food: 4/5

Super clean and nice inside. Nice compromise between a restaurant and neighborhood dive bar. Decent selection of food and drinks.Food was high quality and tasted great. Good options for kids and my son liked his chicken tenders.Servers were all high school aged kids but all super friendly, polite and were attentive.Id recommend for a family dinner or luch spot.

Very good experience at Sidetrack tonight with my son. Attentive staff, prompt ordering and food came out well timed. Delicious scoozi bread, then enjoyable chicken sandwich (great bread) and chicken salad. Will be back soon!

It's a cool little spot. There are nice, pretty local waitresses who are friendly and super down home. Had no complaints about the food and would come back again if I'm in the area


Nice place nice patio food disappointing and overpriced. Had a 20 dollar salad that was basically a few shrimp thrown on a bed of iceberg lettuce.

We just left Sidetrack and had an awesome experience with delicious food! I had the Aloha burger sub grilled chicken and it was so good! Others at the table ordered the hangover burger and the Texas bbq burger. We also had fried pickles for the table, which we all loved. Everyone was more than satisfied with their meals... We will be back!

1.) Shrimp were clearly not fresh nor were they the appetizingly jumbo shrimp as pictured in previous reviews of this salad. *if seafood change is due to Covid based supply shortages then have that reflected in the price, this is NOT worth $20* 2.) Shrimp and Crab were both ice cold and devoid of ANY flavor. Had to cook and season them myself for this to be edible. 3.) Dressing was tasty, rest of the ingredients were ok except the avocado could have been fresher. Overall shrimp louie was not worth the hype, perhaps it was magnificent pre Covid but based on what I received I would not order this again and would rather spend $20 on a salad elsewhere. Three stars is only because I made this into a pretty great tasting salad with modifications. For $20 it should be that straight out of the container!

I went here recently and was impressed by everything on the menu. Their beer selections were on point and all of the items we ordered were excellent. I highly recommend trying the Absolut! Prawns which were decadent and the fried pickles as a change-up to what otherwise could be onion rings. I ordered the seared salmon as my entree and loved it. Definitely many more items on the menu to try out so I'm looking forward to returning hopefully soon.

Great place to watch the game and grab a bite. Sidetrack is not too crowded on weeknights making it easy to grab a spot at the bar or get a table. They have a pretty decent selection of beers and also a full bar. I tried their regular cheeseburger with a side of onion rings. The burger was great. Juicy, well-seasoned, and an all around great pub burger. Onion rings were nice and crisp. Staff was friendly. Recommended!

Service is great and the cubano is excellent. It had the perfect amount of meat and the mustard and other sauce as very tasty. The bun was soft and the tater tots were crispy! The sweet potato fries and regular fries are also good - especially with their special sauces. A lot of rowdy teenagers hang out here but I guess that is to be expected. I wouldn't come here with kids in the evenings because it's a bit loud. Also, this place is not that kid-friendly because their koala care diaper changing table is broken and tilting downwards - my son almost fell off. Please fix it! With my infant, I was able to hold the table up with my knee, but with a 30 pound 2.5 year old toddler, it was impossible. Please fix!

One of the best menus I've seen in years. And the actual food is wonderful as well. Great beer selection as a major bonus! Highly recommend!!!!

Stopped by for lunch on a Saturday and surprisingly got a table immediately. I don't know how this place wasn't already packed full considering the rest of the restaurants on Main Street had an average 1 hour wait time (we checked!). Pretty large menu selection and ended up grabbing the Sidetrack Burger with sweet potato fries and a cup of clam chowder. Everything was delicious. Burger was juicy and the clam chowder was hearty with bacon. All the staff were really polite. Definitely will come back.

Went here on a Friday night, they had live music playing so that was great. Good atmosphere and food was priced right. I enjoyed my meal and will definitely coming back here again.

Unexpectedly came in on a Saturday early afternoon. Enjoyed the patio seating while the farmers market was underway. We ordered the fried pickles they were a bit spicy a bit greasy and soft and not all where covered with batter. I would say this was a miss. The Brooklyn Style Hot Pastrami although very good flavors was on the cooler side of warm, not what I expected and the accompanied tater tots where also a bit greasy. My husband had the Spinach for Veronica salad I have to say yes I sampled it! It was very delicious with the penne pasta and crispy bacon and the gorgonzola gave it a zing! At the end of the meal we came to the agreement it's bar food.
