Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday with family. Love the bread they bring at the beginning of your meal. Very warm always delicious. Have eaten there half a dozen times. Never a bad meal. It can be a longer wait if busy but that is to be expected.

We were so happy when we moved to Sydney 5 years ago to find that there was an newly opened East Side Mario's. We love the food and the selection offered; although I must admit, we have our favs. There is a dining room and a bar section for whichever mood you are in. The service is quick, helpful and... More

Ordered pulled pork sandwich... took long time for it to come and when it did the filling was cold. Notified waitress who took it back, when it came back it was too hat to pick up, obviously put in microwave as it took only a few min to return with same sandwich... lettuce, tomato slices and were a soggy mess...

I really enjoyed the meal I had at East Side Mario's, The atmosphere of the restaurant was decent and the service was very friendly. However, the meals were way too pricey in comparison to other restaurants that have similar or better meals and for three people, the bill ended up being close to 80 dollars! One of the other person's... More

I came to Sydney this past weekend with a large group and the staff were wonderful! We made a reservation short notice for 18 people on a Friday night, and they were ready for us! Everyone was friendly and whenever they came to our table they would laugh and joke with us. Service was fast, which was fantastic because we... More

I was a little surprised at the level of service and the quality of the food. As a franchise operation ,found in many areas of the Maritimes, you expect a "familiar" level of service. That didn't happen here. I was quite disappointed in the service and the food. That being said I must allow that If this particular East Side... More

We decided to try out East Side Mario's again after coming a couple years ago and having a horrible experience. They ave certainly cleaned up their act, we had exceptional service however the food was not as great as the Halifax locations, pasta was under cooked.. good value for money, usually lots left over for lunch the next day.

Food is pretty good, service can be slow. They used to have the treasure box for treats for the kids. They no longer have it. Also, you should never run out of the standard ice cream flavor that comes with all kids meals during March Break. I absolutely love the Halifax restaurant when we lived in Halifax. This one is...
