We were recommend by a few locals to go to this place and we were not disappointed, the food and service was spot on...it was a very busy little place and yet nothing was a problem for the staff and everything tasted great...we can see why this was a popular place for the locals

Dirty plates on the table that never got cleared. Seafood platter not available. Wait time for meals was over 1 hour. Guests who arrived after us received their food before us. Ordered the fish burger but received fish and chips (we didn't want to correct the order for fear of having to wait another hour). Kids chicken schnitzel was burnt.... More

We came here as a recommendation. We were four and my friends ordered the crab and the beef burger. The bread was from some days ago and the crab was small and untasty. Beef burger was just decent. Service was nice.

Another busy place in Airlie but the food came out reasonably quick given how busy they were, and was always very tasty. Ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here over our stay.

Travelling round Australia, menu looked nice. We sat ourselves down, after 5 minutes of not being given menus we got up and got them ourselves instead. After 10 minutes of waiting to order, one of us went up to the bar to ask if it was table service which it wasn't, a waitress apologised saying they were very busy, they... More

We had breakfast here and it was yummy! The eggs were fresh and free range, the bread tasty and crunchy. The coffee was delicious, I would recommend having breaky here, the prices were reasonable and the location great.

Huge portions and great tasting food. Lots of choice. Good coffee. You can sit outside as well -even in the rain! You order at the counter and they will bring it to you.

When I think about Good Food, its about quality and value. After working in some of Australia best food establishments I have discovered making sure high quality standards are applied to the preparation, cooking and presentation of our menu is the key to its success.

SideWalk offers a cosmopolitan experience with its footpath dinning. Although this kind of dinning is not unique elsewhere in Australia, we offer a different experience in Airlie Beach, from the fantastic view, the food, wine and service we certainly stand out from the rest. Lovers of good food, coffee and wine love SideWalk.
