I really don't understand why people go here. I went recently after several years. I had a group of 7 and some of them actually wanted to go here. So we went. It is consistently dissappointing, year after year. There are better places to spend your money. I see below that I gave some "average" ratings. Does anyone gather friends... More

This is the "go to" spot for a late dinner when I'm not sure what I want. There's a full bar, a large menu, and consistent quality. I avoid it for dinner Thursday - Saturday because there's an hour or more wait.

It had been at least six year since I had eaten at East Side Grill and it remained consistently good. They have a great wine list and usually have weekly specials to supplement their normal wine list, which is great if you're buying by the glass. Salad was great, steak was slightly overcooked but still had great char. At the... More

Had dinner here last night. Frozen and canned food prepared way too far in advance. Poor quality and disappointing dinning experience. Service was fine, priced was outrageous for quality level of food. Little if anything was prepared with fresh ingredients.

This place needs a good cleaning. It smells of mold and is always dingy looking. The food is not what it was in the 90s. Overpriced average food.

The most consistently good meal (including food and service) in Northampton - and for almost 30 years. Quite an achievement, especially given the transition in ownership. You can't lose at Eastside.

This is our "go to" restaurant when my husband and I have date night in Northampton. Our favorites are the lobster and corn chowder, the jambalaya, and the sirloin with candied bacon and gouda fondue (seriously, steak with cheese and candied bacon...OMG!!). We have always had excellent service and never had a complaint about the food. If there is time,... More

I took two business people from the Netherlands here for dinner. We all enjoyed the food and it was definitely good service.

this place -- twenty years ago--used to be gorgeous! This time, the bartender was cold, rude and disinterested, the waitress a bit amateur and the food mediocre. Bummer.
