Stopped in for a quick bite and not really expecting much cause it's just another one of those familiar chain restaurants. We had taken the kids years ago when they were young and it's pretty much how we remembered it. I really was surprised though how good the food was. Maybe we hit on a good day but we found... More

The atmosphere is like all other ESM, food is the same. The wait staff is nice but a little slow. Overall it's a reliable option and close walking distance from several hotels.

Stopped in at the Brockville ESM with some friends on our way back to Toronto. Ordered the Lasagna. Was excellent. Waitress was great. Soups and salads and complimentary garlic bread was plentiful and delivered quickly. Actually, I was quite surprised how good the food and service was. I'll stop here again on my east.

My mother and niece and I went here for her graduation and the service was excellent. I had the build your own pasta and even added a couple extras which I was not charged for, my mother had the chicken fingers which were pretty tasty looking. Nice big fingers with what looked like whole chicken. Only complaint was 1.95 for... More

Upon travelling through, we decided to stop at the Brockville East Side Mario's for lunch as heh - the food here is always consistently good. Or so we thought! We ordered from the 'Mario in minutes' lunch menu as we were travelling, and wanted to get back to it after a quick & tasty lunch. Despite ordering from the quick... More

My two sons and I were in for an early supper on Tuesday. There was only two other tables in at the time and they were already eating... My order was placed very promptly and as per my request my salad and kids meals came out at the same time. Halfway into my salad, my server brought out my main... More

It's touch and go here. Depends on the cook I think, but I find that with most restaurants in Brockville. The last time I was there it was excellent. The pasta dish I had was delicious and I always love their stuffed mushrooms. I think they need to change the bread though...the bread at East Sides in Ottawa is much... More

I am really glad I finally tried East Side Mario's after all these years. The atmosphere is great, very inviting, the staff is friendly and aim to please. The service was fast and there were quite a few tables in the place so I was pleasantly surprised at how fast we got our food. I tried the "Hells Kitchen Chicken"... More

The food here is really only average for the money, but our last trip was a catalogue of errors on the part of our server. She was pleasant, even funny but messed up the order more than once. She brought my wife's starter but for some reason held back mine until the main course was served. All of a sudden... More

I will never be back to East Side Mario's in Brockville again! The service was horrible - our server was extremely rude and looked very unhappy to be at work that day (we sat on the bar side, I guess this was a bad decision on my part). I can only hope during her next shift she could attempt to... More
