Switched to a tavern pizza joint. Wanted to give it a try. Amelia's was okay. Should have settled on okay because the Sideline Grill is just plain awful. Same staff including the mother. Plopped a pool table in the middle of the dining room so...More

I have been there 3 times and the food was horrible. The wait staff was not any better. I truly do not know how they stay open.

It is a very small and cozy place. When you first enter you end up at a bar and first thing you see is entrance to the bathrooms. Needless to stay the smell is somewhat bothersome. The food however is incredibly delicious: from lasagna, to...More
