Several months ago I wrote of a disappointing visit. Walked by the East End on Saturday and see that it's closed. I feel vindicated.

We have had some nice meals and that is why we stopped in tonight. Ordered drinks, but found out that wife's choice, Blue Moon, was not available. We each ordered the pot roast sandwich. Oh dear, that is no longer available on the menu. So wife ordered roast beef on weck and I ordered a Texas burger. If you aren't... More

Travelers beware--this place is cash only! The service is slow. The food is good. When the bill came, I was shocked to see that they had charged us $2 a glass for tap water! This is not NYC! This is East Aurora, for goodness sakes! We have not been back--even though we had previously enjoyed going for the live bands... More

We had lunch here on a winter afternoon. The beer selection was interesting and the menu acceptable. There are mainly sandwiches and burgers - lots of burgers. Food was okay to fine. My husband quite liked his turkey club. And my burger was pretty good. But the restaurant was very dim on a winter day and COLD! In addition, even... More

Stopped by in a friday night for a fish fry. Fish was good - but the sides were flavorless. Cole slaw had too much vinegar, macaroni salad had no taste at all and the german potato salad was floating in grease. Looks like a nice enough place have a beer or sit on the patio in the summer, but wouldn't... More

Overall, the food and service was average. The place is rather small and does have an outside seating. My spouse had the East End burger with Buffalo Bison beer and enjoyed it. I had the Pull-pork sandwich on a pretzel bun. Both meals were acceptable. I noticed that there was no apparent way for handicap patrons to get into the... More

After reading some of the reviews after the fact, I find it hard to believe we were at the same establishment. Our experience however different and very pleasureable. After several hours of visiting Vidlers 5 & 10 which I find interesting is not listed here on Tripadvisor, my GF and I looked for a place to eat within walking distance.... More
