Sides Diner and Grill (Long Branch)

Sides Diner and Grill (Long Branch)

Before exploring Sandy Hook, I decided to stop at Sides Diner.  Sides Diner is a relatively new diner down the shore, so I was looking forward to trying it.

Atmosphere: A
Sides 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.

Coffee: A
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh. The waitress refilled it often, and I have no complaints.

Food: A
Sides Diner 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.
