Yep, the train goes by. Popular joint. Awesome bar. Good burgers. Nice fish. Try the English chips, crispy. Service is very inconsistent. Many beer choices, for those who like 'em.

Service was outstanding (and we had a party of 8). I got the sliders (Mini Driver gourmet mini burgers with blue cheese, bacon and grilled onions) which was great, but the best thing was the Beer Battered Pickles. Yummiest I have ever had

Sidetrack does not take its name lightly. It is safely located right next to an operating railroad track, and if you were lucky like my friend and I, you will sit especially close to the action. Anyway, our server Adam was delightful, my cocktail Jesus...More
