Not too expensive and a good lunch. The wait to pay your check is a little long. Seems like a lot of local work people come here for lunch, we were tourists. The chicken salad wasn't the best, try the turkey.

We have been going to Side Street for at least 30 years. In fact, we held both my and my wife's 50th birthdays there for Sunday lunch. Mary Lou has catered family celebrations (last minute deviled eggs), and we have never been disappointed. No, it...More

Today was the walking tour of historic homes in Oakwood and that should have been a reason to staff up but there were only two servers in the entire restaurant. We (a party of three) arrived around noon and were told that there was a...More

I am particularly drawn to places only locals know about. You would need to be a local to find this Side Street. The chicken salad was amazing!!! It is not something I generally order out, but this was spectacular!! Not your average sandwich shop from...More
