Run of the Mill

Very busy with attractive decor, but run of the mill fast food. Quick service and they do give you plenty to eat but the food quality is only average at best. There were over 40 people in our party and we were in and out in in just over 1 hour. Not bad. The Chicken Parm was tasty and more... read more

Dropped by for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. First time I have been back since it was renovated. Service was good and the food very well done. I would recommend this as a good lunch spot anytime.

Have been to East Side Mario's numerous times in Guelph. Even when it is super busy we get waited on quickly. Love the garden sale and garlic bread stick. A favourite is their firecracker shrimp bow ties and chicken tetrazzini. A family favourite.

Excellent promotion in conjunction with good wait staff and very good meals. The restaurant was very busy when we attended - said the wait would be 20 - 30 but it went fast at the bar - very good bartenders - asked for service and got it - nothing flat. The staff must be used to the routine as they... More

My son and I were in town for a Basketball tournament on a Sat. Night. We decided to eat here because he loves pasta, and I love the salad. We were told our wait would be 20 min., but surprisingly it was less than 10; perfect! Our waiter was great, and very attentive even though he was busy. Service, food... More

My fiance and I often visit this location as it is close to his place and the food is a great value. We are always seated very quickly. The food comes quickly and is consistently made. Refills are usually very quick to come to the table, even when they are busy. One server in particular, Emily, always goes above and... More

Great place to go for lunch. Have a good kids menu and the service is wonderful. The menu for adults is also good, with salad options and I enjoy the pasta.

East Side Mario's is our go-to place after a long day of work, if I'm too tired to make supper. It's not fancy or knock-out fabulous; just comfortable and familiar. During baseball season we like to sit in the bar section and watch the game on the huge screen (the size of a whole wall). We always share one order... More
