Restaurant Details

Great Irish pub-like atmosphere with a giant working fireplace ... serving 16 beers on tap, mostly microbrews. Sidetrack is situated almost on top of the tracks in historic Depot Town. Our outside patios are large and great for train viewing. We have been a pub since 1850. The large back bar has been in the Sidetrack for over 100 years, along with the restored tin ceiling. The Sidetrack has been rated the best burger west of Detroit. The whole menu was given a 9 out of 10 for food from the Ann Arbor News. Wonderful Shepherds Pie... and the beer selection is one of the best in the area. Great shopping in the immediate area surrounding the Sidetrack. Makes for a great day trip... across from Ypsilanti Farmers Market.
