Everybody told us this was an awesome place, so we came with high expectations. Unfortunately we came on Thanksgiving day, and they had a dinner buffet. It's hard to judge on buffet food how good a restaurant usually is, so we left a little disappointed....More

Side Street Inn is a great place for groups to go for some great local food and friendship. The pork chops are a reason to get to this place alone! All of the portions are large and great for sharing.

Try the Chicken, the Teriyaki Rib Eye and the Fried Rice. All three amazing. It is a hole-in-the-wall type of place, with a grumpy hostess, but the food was really good!!!!
