My friend and I always go to Moxie's at Stone Road Mall for our birthday lunch...this year we arrived only to find it had closed, so we walked across the street to East Side Mario's and had a wonderful lunch...their lasagna is so good....I ate about 1/3 of the very generous portion and took home the leftovers. Good food, good... More

This restaurant was the closest to walk to from our hotel, we really enjoyed our meal! We both ordered new items on the menu - basa with vegetables and a stir fry dish, they're very nice additions to the menu. Food was served in a timely manner, great service!!!

We came to see our son at U of G and before heading back had dinner together at Mario's. It was full of youngsters and we seemed like the only parents around. We were greeted & seated by a very pleasant young lady. Another friendly one introduced herself and took our order. Our drinks came in very fast and after... More

I used to very much like East Side Mario's. This restaurant was recently renovated, although it doesn't seem substantially different from before. The service was satisfactory, but the food has gone downhill. The Caesar salad was bland; the only things I could taste were the lettuce and the bacon bits. The pasta was rubbery and also bland. The bread was... More

It is a great restaurant to go to with the family. Their pastas are ok not great. I am Italian and find it very Americanized. My favorite is the alfredo sauce. Their salads which come with the meals are good.

The renovated East Side Mario's is even better with a new, lively atmosphere. The food and service has always been first rate, as are other East Side Mario's but this one has become the traditional family celebration restaurant for special memorable events.

our waitress took my husbands meal off the bill , which we didn't ask for, but did tell her his food didn't taste good. I feel when a waitress comes & asks how your meal is & you say "fine" then complain to everyone else, it's not correcting the problem.

Had dinner there during the week with friends; no lineup. The exterior has been redecorated and looks great; the décor inside is nice too. We think they intentionally have more noise than some other restaurants as part of the atmosphere; not everyone loves this. Our server Megan was great; prompt and helpful; I wish every restaurant would have servers like... More
