They had quite a few great beers for half off happy hour. I don't think that they had any food specials, but their food prices were reasonable and the food was good.

We went here for the first time and were very pleased. I ordered the quiche of the day which was bacon & caramelized onions and my husband got the biscuit sandwich with scrambled eggs, cheese, and bacon. Each order came with roasted potatoes. The coffee was good and hot. As busy as they were, we were pleasantly surprised with the... More

We went to a car show in the area and decided to give The Sidecar Bar & Grill a try. Certainly glad we did! We had brunch and sat at the bar. Crab Cakes Benedict was delicious! At first I wasn't going to order it since I'm not a big fan of poached eggs but wanted to try something different.... More

Good neighborhood bar with a decent variety of food and an impressive beer selection. The upstairs offers a nice area to host larger parties. Service is good. Limited parking.

We stopped to have lunch because we saw this on Diners, Drive ins and Dives and it lives up to its reputation. The staff was super friendly, the place has a rustic vibe and the menu is limited but different. The burgers were delicious. Prices are reasonable. Definitely will be back.

This place has excellent food and a great atmosphere. Don't let the people standing around outside waiting for a table scare you away. You can eat at the bar and the hostess will find you a seat. Menu is varied and creative - chorizo brunch burrito was amazing! Homemade garlic sausage gravy ordered with a biscuit will change your life!... More
