Have been there, with family 3 times. Enough variety to keep kids and grandkids happy. The fried seafood was perfect and the hamburgers were large. Service was good and other customers were jovial. Desserts were large enough for 2. Prices were very fair. Beer is cold and has restaurant access for handicap. Large dining area. Only down side is that... More

Sunday nights are tough to eat out but Southside was open. They were very busy but service was good and the food came quick.

When a place is packed at 2 p.m. on a Monday, you know you're in for a treat. Southside Cafe did not disappoint. Filled with locals, we were still able to get a table quickly, and service was great. Everything was tasty and fresh, from our iced tea to the salads. I had blackened shrimp salad with remoulade dressing. It... More

This is like the NCO Club, of the Navy or UMSC base, food is good and a happy place. Good place to take the kids and see all the photos and items on the wall. Lots of history in the building of the USA. Staff is friendly also. Lots of good parking. Owen by a combat USMC

Everything we had was awesome. I had the spinach & artichoke dip, the absolute Best I have ever had. My sister in law had the Brisket Burger and she said it was undeniably the best burger she ever had. Don't miss Wednesday nights, $4 appetizers & all Burger toppings are free. And, by the way, Joe was an awesome waiter!

Never a bad choice at this place. Love their steak-on-salad dish, but got the tuna and it was excellent. Place was packed for a weekday lunch, and everybody is here. You can't go wrong with Southside.
