A family-owned neighbourhood pub-restaurant in Sidney popular with locals and visitors. The building itself is over 100 years old. Don't let the outside appearance fool you. The decor is warm and full of historic character and local memorabilia. The food is your typical pub grub,...More

I've gone to Boondocks three times in the last month and each time it is consistently delicious food, cooked with heart in a warm, casual pub style restaurant. The poutine (which you can get as a side) and wings are to die for. The owners...More

First time visitor to this restaurant. I don't eat a lot, so just had the honey-garlic flavoured chicken wing appetizer and some fries. The wings were the best I had ever eaten, and the fries were great, too.

Boondocks always has a great pub vibe. Located close to the water, this is a great local watering hole. Their food is always good (true pub food). Prices are affordable and drinks are inexpensive. Worth a visit if you are visiting the area.

Lots to look at. Good food and fun. Very noisy and crowded, but that is part of the charm. Food is plentiful and excellent!

Went to this "pub style" restaurant on a Saturday evening. The place was fairly busy, in part because of the 2 for 1 steak special. Usually this type of deal involves a cheap cut or extra small steak. I was surprised when it arrived, along...More
