On the recommendation of a Shelby County Sheriff deputy, we stopped in for lunch. Mmm, good! Grilled catfish, greens, cornbread and buttermilk cole slaw. Good service and the full parking lot told me this is a popular spot, even for lunch.

Number 1 why are restaurants allowed to have people smoke indoors, is it still the 60's. This is just obnoxious in 2016. The food is about the same as any other fast casual restaurant like Applebee's or similar. No variety no ambience

We stop here each year on our annual trip for the Tour of Duty fund raiser. We look forward to eating here. The beer is cold and the food good. Plus they have lots of room for all our friends.

When this restaurant first opened they have the best fried mushrooms and a great chicken sandwich. I went back there today while I was in Memphis on business, I had not been to Sidecar in a few years. I ordered the fried mushrooms as an appetizer. They taste like the ones you buy at your groceries freezer, they were small... More

I come here about once a week for lunch it is consistently good food and good value. They also have sandwich baskets, salads and soups. I had the red beans and rice last time and it was about the best I've had outside New Orleans. The staff is effecient and friendly.

The food was good, and the wait staff was great, but I was surprised that this was a bar. Half of the cafe was non-smoking, but it was "smoldering," and our clothes smelled of smoke.

While traveling in Memphis we stopped at the Sidecar Cafe for lunch. It was a Sunday so it wasn't crowded. The special of the day was $7 sidecar basket; a burger cooked to order (I had mine cooked medium) and fries. Also, one of our party had 6 pc shrimp basket, served with cocktail sauce and fries. We also had... More

I loved that there was music on the patio on Sunday evening; even if the guitar was good but the lady singer not so much. Weather was perfect! My Gumbo was good but my husband's burger was REALLY thin. However, they redeemed themselves on the hot fudge brownie dessert which served all three of us. It's a definite biker paradise.

My co-workers and I go to this restaurant about once a week since we work just across the street from it. We have tried pretty much everything on the menu after many years. Nothing is bad, all pretty tasty. The wait staff really know us now and usually can tell what we want to order right when we sit down.... More
