Part of the foundation that Sidelines Sports Bar sits on was the old Bridgeton-Millville Pike toll house.  According to the files of the Millville historical society, the toll house was there as early as 1840, and it was known to be the oldest house on West Main Street.  Horse and Buggy’s riding along today's Route 49 had to pay a toll to travel between Bridgeton and Millville.  In 1919, Cumberland County and the State Highway Commission acquired Bridgeton-Millville Pike and the tolls were dropped when the county engineer began making repairs to the road.  The gate house was rebuilt at least twice before it was torn down in 1975 to become a parking lot for Kirby's Bar.  

I purchased Kirby’s Bar and changed the name to Sidelines Sports Bar & Grill.  Sidelines has come a long way since the first day I opened the doors on May 4, 2005.  It’s unrecognizable; completely renovated.  Over the years, we have completed three expansions.  The last expansion being an outside patio equipped with a full bar, 4 TV’s and ample seating.  I am proud to be able to provide a fun, comfortable tavern for the people of Millville and surrounding towns.

Millville, NJ is my home.  I was raised here.  My football jersey hangs proudly in the bar next to my teammates that I shared the football field with; who are still friends and loyal Sidelines customers to this day.  I love and care about this town and strive to make it a better place to live.  I enjoy giving back to the community.  I sponsor many local organizations and provide a venue to host fundraisers to raise money for your favorite charities.  I take great pride in my establishment and insist that we provide only the best products and service.

Thank you for supporting us through the years and cheers to many, many more!
