Flipside Steakhouse and Sports Bar has opened in Santa Rosa's St. Francis Shopping Center, offering a family-friendly atmosphere and moderate prices.
The steakhouse side features a classic menu of steaks, prime rib, burgers, seafood, salads, raw bar, desserts and signature shakes. It also serves local wines, craft beer and a full bar. There is a children's menu, and kids under 10 eat free every day before 7 p.m.
The Sports Bar offers a gastropub lunch menu, the same dinner menu as the steakhouse, plus a late-night menu.
“We are out to prove that an authentic steakhouse doesn't have to be stuffy and over-priced, but instead can offer high value at a fair price,” said Nino Rabbaa, CEO of Flip Hospitality and Entertainment Group. “We want to be your favorite neighborhood restaurant with great food and a fun, friendly and casual atmosphere.”
The sports bar is open for lunch at 11 a.m. and serves continuously until midnight every day. The steakhouse serves dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. 138 Calistoga Road. 539-7700.
The company also operates Flipside Bar & Burger on Third Street in downtown Santa Rosa, Lakeside Grill in Spring Lake Park and Chez Vous Catering to You.
They are currently renovating Space XXV and Rendez Vous Bistro, both on Old Courthouse Square in Santa Rosa, with plans to reopen them this spring. In early summer, the company plans to debut Flipside Brewhouse in the former Latitude Island Grill in Rohnert Park.
