Food was ok and service was too. Problem is the price is too high and they know they can suck the tourist in. Would not go back unless they knocked 5 bucks off the price of mains

The food is ok but it took so long to get the meal and also the people working there are just mad or something. They never came yo get the dirty plates or cups as well.

Great big breakfasts that keep you going all day. Just need to improve on the heat of their lukewarm coffee and making sure OJ is always available.

The food was enjoyable once we got it. However the 45minute wait was a little frustrating. Every time we tried to speak to the waitress we were greeted with a very rude tone, almost like we were putting her out just by being there. Sorry...More

We came here as a recommendation. We were four and my friends ordered the crab and the beef burger. The bread was from some days ago and the crab was small and untasty. Beef burger was just decent. Service was nice.

When I think about Good Food, its about quality and value. After working in some of Australia best food establishments I have discovered making sure high quality standards are applied to the preparation, cooking and presentation of our menu is the key to its success.

SideWalk offers a cosmopolitan experience with its footpath dinning. Although this kind of dinning is not unique elsewhere in Australia, we offer a different experience in Airlie Beach, from the fantastic view, the food, wine and service we certainly stand out from the rest. Lovers of good food, coffee and wine love SideWalk.
