Tastless, Heavy, noisy and small portion for the price. I spent 60 dollars and still left the restaurant hungry. The pasta was so heavy on oil.

Had lunch for first time since the restaurant was renovated. new lunch menu looked promising so I had the new mushroom goat cheese salad which was nice. Hubby had one of the new sandwiches which comes in a tortilla like wrap but it was cold limp and mostly just the totilla. Glass of wine was ridiculously high priced so all... More

Brennan is the best waiter I've ever had. Absolutely great, friendly service. Drinks were refilled before we asked for a refill. Salads came out quick and to order. Made our ESM experience very enjoyable.

Suited a very large group (24) on Easter weekend. We always like East Sides for our team travel dinners.

East Side Mario's is a chain, so the menu doesn't change often. The food is generally decent and it features several "all you can eat" options. Great for students (a large part of their cliental) as you can really fill up. Service is generally good and you won't wait long for your food. Good for family dining too!

We like to indulge once in a while and East side Marios hit the mark. So impressed that we can still indulge in bread and salad with our meal. Chicken Parma is delicious and huge, I had leftovers for the next day. It was great that hubby could change side to fries and I could change the sauce on my... More

There proportions were not small but not large for the price. We will never be... More

I had the all u can eat soup, salad, and bread. Soups ok...Italian wedding is a tad salty...salad is average...nothing to write home about..but is adequate. I would go back just because it is a quick lunch and your guaranteed to be full.

I have never been so angry before going to an eatery. The bartender was just rude, when I told him we just wanted water because caffeine laden drinks would just keep me up he looked like we were troglodytes and walked away in a huff. Came back barely stayed two seconds just to get our order. It's a University town... More
