Looking for something a littel different with loca color then this smal sport bar about 15-20 min in the South End of Hartford is a nice change of pace from the Downtown scene.

Went there recently with a group of friends. The bar area is very nice...Good selection of drinks and if they do not have a specific drink your looking for the bartender will mix up one of his specialities...The food was great...I ordered a burger and wings..The atmosphere was also very good..Outdoor seating is also there..I'd def go back.

The place used to be called the OXBOW until new management totally rehabed the place and the clientele changed drastically. The Food is great the service is good and the atmosphere is quaint.

I have never eaten at the resteraunt, only ordered delivery or for pick-up. That being said, everything I have ever ordered from sidewalk has met or exceeded my expectations. Once I ordered for pick up and the food was not ready on time, however the bartender gave me and my buddy a free beer to chill with while we waited.... More
