Lots of places to eat, drink, but now at dark starting to see more drama. There has been a rise in crime. Enjoy yourself during the lunch time, afternoon time, but nothing good will happen later at night.

In my opinion, in order to appreciate the South Side, one also has to enjoy the type of atmosphere that it offers: cheesy themed restaurants, bars, & nightlife. And since I am not one of those people, the South Side is my least favorite neighborhood...More

For some, this area might be too sketchy but for me, it was very picturesque. A lot of bars and restaurants. At night it turns into the club scene.

I usually stop by the many restaurants in the day over the past few years. In the day I find it safe but at night it is a little iffy walking around.

My wife and I stayed in the South Side during our visit. Ate at excellent restaurants, drank in cool, hip bars and walked around to take in the area. It felt like a small town in a big city to us! Really enjoyed it.
