I always look forward to going to the Eastside Grille ! This restaurant is always fantastic ! The food is always consistently great, the only variable is how many other people were going to the Eastside Grille the night you are ! It really doesn't make a difference what time you get their you're going to have a little wait...... More

The Eastside has been around for 30 years so it is a bit of an institution in Northampton. The atmosphere is nice, but the food is terribly expensive for average quality. The "cajun" style food is not really cajun. People seem to go there because they think it is a nice, upscale place for a special occasion. It is not... More

Ate here with my 16 year old son and all he wanted was a good steak. We found the right place! The menu was large with a long list of sides to accompany your salad, steak, potato, and veggie. The prices were very reasonable and service was great. I rated atmosphere a 4 but that isn't really fair because we... More

Excellent food and friendly staff. The choices and food quality were excellent, the bar was nice too,-our wait was over an hour because they do not take reservations.

Our first experience at the Eastside Grill was very good. We came expecting to have a drink and a few oysters, but ended up staying for an (outstanding) dinner. Firstly, the oysters were excellent. We really enjoy oysters and have been lucky enough to enjoy some extremely good oyster restaurants on the east coast (Neptune Oyster, Boston). Even on that... More

The Godfather of modern Northampton dining finally beckoned us three months after we moved here. We weren't "wowed", but the tradition of the restaurant and quality of food were unquestionably good. While the overall experience seemed a bit flat, that won't dissuade us from returning. The two of us settled in to a cozy booth, and were served by a... More

Very good food, nice atmosphere, very friendly staff, well located in the center of town,close to parking,and perfectly situated for a post-dinner stroll through the very quanit and interesting town. Food was good, and very convivial (especially after the very loud group next to us had finished and left).

Once again my wife and I were among the happy and spoiled diners at Eastside Grille on Monday Oct. 20... Our server was Kristian who was a wealth of knowledge of beers, wines and of course food. We began with shrimp bruschetta and fried oysters followed by a maple raspberry glazed swordfish. Caesar salad, warm bread and butter and dessert.... More

It's a pleasure to live in Northampton, with so many great places to eat-- Bistro les Gras, (first and foremost, not just alphabetically!) Ibiza Tapas, India House, Noodles, Osaka, Sierra Grille, Thai Garden, and Zen, to mention some favorites. Regrettably, I'd advise you to spend your money at any of them before bothering with Eastside Grill, the popularity and ratings... More
