Disappointing Meal and cocktail

My husband has been going here for years, usually for a well-made cocktail in the bar area. His impression lead me to expect more than what I got when dining there this week with five of our friends as part of a belated wedding celebration. Yes, we had a very nice visit, but my meal (butternut... read more

The food is terrific. I've never had a bad meal here. Everything is consistent. The cod with lobster sauce is yummy.

I have never been to Eastside Grill without swearing I would not be back because of bad (inattentive) service. The food is fine, not terrific, but the service makes it not worth the trip.

We don't eat out much, but it was my birthday and my parents were in town. We had a great meal with excellent service. In my opinion it was a bit pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

I have been to the Eastside Grill often-- with friends, family, and invited guests. The food is a great combo w/ emphasis on cajun grilled meat and fish. The deserts are also exquisite. Sitting at the small bar, waiting for a table, and enjoying fresh oysters can't be beat. On weekends reservations are a must!

The meal started with an amazing lobster & corn chowder. The steak was cooked to near perfection. The service as friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was ok but stay away in cold weather from the back porch dining area.

I finally got to Eastside Grill after hearing so many great things about it and was disappointed on so many levels. The food was mediocre and overpriced, service was slow and the ambiance was dated and impersonal. We started out with a half dozen of oysters. They were absolutely delicious but they could have used more variety. (There was only... More

I have been coming here for years. Sometimes it's just to grab a drink and a nibble at the bar and other times its to have a great dinner with friends or my date. The staff is always, always very pleasant. The food is always delicious.

I feel in love with this place the minute I walked in. We were greeted immediate by a charming hostess. Kyle was our waiter and he was awesome, very attentive, not overbearing, and very knowledgeable. We both order steaks, tenderloin and Delmonico with sides of mashed sweet potatoes, asparagus and cheddar potato cakes. Salad was included and we both had... More
