Funky & casual atmosphere. Order at the counter and they bring your order to your table. Seating inside and out. The best homemade food around. Try the Mac & Cheese and the Bread Pudding.

Great atmosphere, very comfortable, good food with decent small selection of wine and beer. I would say it's a bit over priced, but this is downtown Danville, right?!

Excellent place for small or medium sized group... Local, fresh & relaxing. Enjoy any number of unique salads or sandwiches and a great open family style seating inside or out.... You'll love this local gem.

Sideboard is a staple around here. The hip high schoolers, local professionals, moms on the run...everyone loves it. Know though...it's crowded. Always. Seating gets snapped up and guarded fiercely while your table mate stands in line to order. If you go alone, bring a book or something to hold your table spot. Good news is the service is fast and...

Locals love this place. The counter ordering, and table delivery is fine. The ingredients are healthy, and the menu creative. It's all good. We shared the brussel sprouts and chicken sandwich this time. Tasty!

You order at the counter from their regular menu or specials listed on the board. All seemed good. Everyone of our party enjoyed their selection. Fun, "funky" place.

We were in town visiting relatives and they suggested we try this place. The food was very good and the atmosphere was very comfortable and inviting. A great place to enjoy the food, drink and family. So glad we went here. We would definitely come back again.

Been here a couple times, but my first review.No parking on site at this place, but fortunately there are numerous lots nearby. Also, best to come here with a veteran because normal eatery rules are absent - have to line up inside to order, and then try finding a seat ... best to do in reverse order, but only if... More
