I feel like this place is moderately priced for the quality and amount of food. I personally think the portions border on the Cheesecake Factory portion size, but it's very flavorful and delicious. On the plus side, you'll have leftovers for tomorrow's lunch. I had the gumbo and loved it. And the bartender was excellent and though I can't remember... More

I had Happy Hour Oysters with a delicious burger here. The Aperol Spritz's were very good as well. The bartender was really nice and attentive. Loved it here and will return

I have never been disappointed at sidecar. Good food, great service, nice unassuming, warm vibe kind of place. Interesting menu, that could change a little more often, but still a good variety.

So, we had high hopes for sidecar based on what we read. We ended up going for dinner and beer around 11pm, and when we got there it was relatively empty. The taps were ALL broken, but a waitress helped guide us towards a good bottle. I've never sent a meal back to the kitchen in my life, but when... More

We spent our first lunch/brunch in Brooklyn here, only regret was not going back for a second dining trip with drinks. Great atmosphere and helpful friendly staff. The open kitchen provides a spot for people watching. Smallish menu but with daily specials. We both tried one of the specials; fried chicken and waffles and salmon cakes and eggs. Both were...

Don't let the tin ceiling, capacious bar, and open kitchen area fool you ... this is not only a fine drinking establishment, but a surprisingly good restaurant. Their menu is on the short side, but everything I have tried was a delight. Had a gumbo recently that was so richly rouxed and beautifully spiced, I want to roll around in... More

This is my spot of choice for a weekend brunch in the neighborhood with the family. For one, they're very kid friendly which suit me well as I have a 4 year-old and a 2-year old. I can't speak for all of their brunch items as I've always ordered the corned beef hash and a side of thick cut bacon... More
