Been a few times....always hard to find a seat, as it is busy for good reason....but have yet to find anything that I didn't enjoy. Asian Nachos and dry rub wings are both favourites and a good draft selection to help it go down

My wife and I live downtown and have been visiting some of the restaurants and bars locally. Our first time was with some friends at a first Friday. We had drinks and someone ordered "Asian Nachos" which are wontons with toppings normally found on nachos anywhere in Sarnia. This are so good we have been back to try experience them... More

Good quality food, a little pricey at $12-$15 for a sandwich type dinner. Nice wine choices. Warm atmosphere. Friendly servers.

On our way back to the US from Niagara Falls; we stopped in Sarnia and spotted this place. So glad we did. The food was delicious. My husband had the Brisket Sandwich and a house salad (with pears and blue cheese) and I had the Pineapple Chicken Sandwich. An order of Poutine (had never had this before) was devoured as... More

Location, food, staff - you can't go wrong here. Be sure to get in early because lunch and dinner times it fills up fast. Only downfall is lack of space as its narrow, however, one can never knock a place for that... Be sure to snag their wings - superb!

Stopped here on the way home from Statford. Very charming pub style service. Food is all good. Fish and chips is authentic with a huge deep fried haddock filet. Salads are amazing. I had the brisket poutine. Best. Ever.

This is my go to place in downtown Sarnia. The staff is very friendly and provide great service. I usually have dinner here weekly or every two weeks. The pear and cashew salad with hazelnut dressing is fabulous! I usually add chicken and a glass of red wine for an amazing fun and reasonably priced dinner. Great value.

Sideways is a small but bustling pub with a typical selection of burgers, wings, etc. We happened to be there on wing night and got a plate of huge wings that were very good. The salads on the menu are also excellent with some unique combinations.

I love coming here when friends are in town visiting. There is a small amount of tables so it always feels cozy and busy. The service is friendly. TVs on the walls are great to watch sports. Good selection of beers on tap as well as other mixed drinks. The prices are average for meals. Fun to order many small... More

This cozy place has great food. My favorites are the Pear and Cashew Salad with hazelnut dressing and add grilled chicken and their pulled pork either as a sandwich or on nachos. Portions are generous and the food quality is amazing. Service is fast and the wait staff is very friendly and fun. I eat here about every week. I... More
