Welcome to The Side Door

The Side Door is a blast from the past featuring a pub-style menu with a twist. Dining is available both inside and outside, and a fun atmosphere is always found no matter where you’re eating!

Inside, you’re “next up” on the Pool Table. Outside, you can throw some Horse Shoes while throwing back your food and drink!
