A variety of pizza, beer, and an awesome environment to enjoy it in…what could be better? Sidewall Pizzeria located in the upstate of South Carolina has all three of these things and more.
Home to two locations (one in downtown Greenville and one in downtown Travelers Rest) Sidewall is the place to go for a hip twist on the Italian classic. On my first trip I went to the location in downtown Greenville. At this location, the building that cranks out these delicious pies is in a transformed garage and definitely gives a strong vibe before you even walk in the door. When you do enter, that ambiance is amplified through the rustic décor that completes the restaurant. Everything from the long wooden farm tables with matching benches to the chalkboard sign adorned with the daily ice cream special. Since Sidewall is such popular place to grab a slice of pizza, be warned, the wait for a table can sometimes be more than just a few minutes. BUT the good news is-there’s a bar! Pull yourself up a bar stool and enjoy your wait with a cold local beer or glass of wine to sip on while you wait for your table.
Once you finally sit down and get a good look at the menu, I all but guarantee your heart (and stomach) is going to be torn on what to order. Deliciously fresh salads, mouthwatering fluffy breadsticks, and a wonderful variety of pizza. It is definitely a difficult choice to place an order with this menu, but thankfully I have friends whose appetite is as carb hungry as mine. We opted for an order of their homemade breadsticks (which come in orders of four and six), a Spicy Italian pizza, and a Margherita pizza. Oh my lanta was every single bite just as good as the first. The fresh ingredients that the chefs use at Sidewall definitely show in everything that they create.
Now even though you are sitting their in a carb induced coma, you’re gonna need to pull yourself together so that you can enjoy a sinfully delicious bowl of ice cream. Chocolate and vanilla are always on the menu, but there is also a flavor of the day. I had their flavor of the day, which was cardamom-salted caramel, and I don’t think words can even begin to describe how satisfying this ice cream was. The flavor of the gooey salted caramel mixed with the slight spice of cardamom literally had me doing a dance in my chair as I licked my spoon.
I can pretty much guarantee that whatever you decide to order at Sidewall is going to be amazing. The one piece of advice I will give you before you pack the car with your friends and family and head on over…parking. Parking at Sidewall is very tight and scarce however there are multiple small parking lots surrounding the building that you can park at, you’ll just have to walk a little bit extra to get that pizza…but that counteracts all the calories, right?
