Pull up a stool and grab a shake – South Bank’s classic Americana diner has a new menu to boast about.

On the corner of Little Stanley and Grey Street, a retro heaven can be found offering nostalgic feasts complete with the old-school tunes of a jukebox.

South Side Diner is another notch on Harun Gencerler’s belt, a local restaurateur behind the success of Next Door Kitchen & Bar and Ahmet’s Turkish Restaurant.

When dining at South Side, consider a stack of pancakes drizzled with Canadian maple syrup, buffalo wings or a foot-long smoked bourbon hot dog.

To welcome in winter, South Side has introduced a few more notable meals including the South Beach Burger (the venue’s first vegetarian burger), the Crispy Fried Duck and Chilli Con Carn and Roasted Banana Pepper.

Also, after the success of 2 for 1 Mac n Cheese Mondays, South Side has decided that this special will continue indefinitely.

Head chef Dean Brewer, originally from Next Door, is the brains behind the iconic Americana meals.

There’s no skipping a slice of his pumpkin, apple or cherry pie with a famous Tootsie Roll or Reese’s Peanut Nutter Shake.

However, it’s not all about the food at South Side Diner, but the eclectically vintage atmosphere.

Whether you’re lounging in one of the retro booths or perched on atop a chrome stool at the bar, expect to feel as if you have been whisked back to the 50’s and the Grease cast could stroll in at any moment.

While the Americana stereotypes may run wild at South Side, retro-lovers and fans of all things vintage will fall in love.
