Sides Grill and Diner (Long Branch)
Before exploring Sandy Hook, I decided to stop at Sides Grill and Diner. Sides Grill and Diner is a relatively new diner down the shore, so I was looking forward to trying it.
Sides Grill and Diner Atmosphere: A
Sides Grill and Diner is located in Long Branch right near Red Bank. It’s located on the main road in a stand-alone building.
The inside is a small modern-looking diner. It has a full-length bar, a few booths, and tables.
One thing I must include is that the bathrooms were one of the most well kept of any restaurant I’ve been too.
Sides Grill and Diner Coffee: A
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh. The waitress refilled it often, and I have no complaints.
Sides Grill and Diner Food: A
Sides Grill and Diner menu has a lot more healthy options than many diners. There are kale salads, plenty of sandwiches, along with the standard breakfast and lunch options. Sides are only open until 4 pm, so there aren’t dinner options.
I decided to order the French onion soup. It came out quickly and had plenty of onions as well as a thick layer of cheese on top. It was delicious.
I was craving a gyro, so I ordered a beef gyro. It came with French fries. The Gyro was good. It was nothing extraordinary, but it tasted good. I will never learn my lesson that gyros are not easy to eat.
The server was friendly, and the food came out quickly. I have no complaints.
Sides Grill and Diner Cost: $
For my soup, gyro, and coffee, the coffee was $18.
