We were just looking for a bar to have a drink so this place was good enough. Drinks, music, atmosphere, service and price were average.

Great little bar on Limestone close to Gratz Park Inn. Very nice staff and great food and drinks. Cheeseburger and fries are wonderful pub food. Bloody Mary is tip top and so are the cold beers on tap. When in town always try to stop by...and the soups are delicious.

Ate here recently and was served a piece of meat that I couldn't identify. Undercooked flatiron steak with a tendon running through it. I couldn't saw my way through it. When I pointed it out to the server, all I got was a shrug!

We decided to have dinner before a movie last weekend and had a great meal at Sidebar. The beer was cold and the fish and chips were very good. Our server was very friendly and helpful.

Visited while in town on business, as a local recommend for an inexpensive meal and a brew. Server was pleasant and accommodating. Small place, more bar than eatery. Had BLT's, salads and appetizer. Just ok. Bacon was kinda MIA. Salad small, but good. Overpriced a bit. Wouldn't recommend with so many other options. Maybe good for a beer outside if... More

My husband and I happened upon this slice of heaven when we were in town. I ordered the black bean burger and I seriously was disappointed when it was gone. It was like eating heaven. I enjoyed every bite. The flavor was spectacular! I wish I knew how they made it because I'd love to make it for myself. Since... More

This is a great casual place. The hamburger is absolutely perfect and the fries are outstanding. The service and clientele are both relaxed and friendly. Sitting in the window or on the patio gives you a nice view of the park and courthouse. A great place to enjoy a Rolling Rock!

We stopped by this interesting looking bar/restaurant on the way through town. Only had 7 tables and bar seating. The menu was small but had options for meat lovers and non meat lovers! My man loved his burger and although I did enjoy my black bean burger, the bun was hard. I just removed it. All in all, very enjoyable... More

We started with the fried pickles and they were delicious. I had the hamburger and it was very good, cooked just right! My spouse had the BLT and the bacon was literally raw. Not good at all. We will definitely go back, just not get the blt.
