Westside, for years a sleepy warehouse neighborhood, is changing quickly. Newer, more consumer-oriented businesses are moving in after being displaced by the development on Howell Mill Road. Residents are also moving into new apartments being built at the edge of Buckhead. Westside Bar is a pleasant little place from that more relaxed Westside era.
The interior is standard, old school bar with low lighting and lots of wood. People sat at the bar and around tables, taking their time to chat and enjoy themselves.
I started with a Caesar salad, which was nicely done with fresh ingredients.
I topped that off with a slice of veggie pizza. The crust is cracker style, all crunch and little chew, which is sure to annoy New York pizza zealots. But I really enjoyed my slice. The huge pile of ingredients included all sorts of things that created a melange of taste. It was big enough to make a satisfying lunch. And the bill was very reasonable with good service. I can see why locals come here.
