Famous for it's hearty comfort food, the East Side offers fine dining on the shores of beautiful Lake Memphremagog. When you're traveling, nothing hits the spot better than a homemade buttermilk biscuit with chicken, gravy, real mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. If you have room for the bake shops, dessert of the month, you'll know why the East Side has been a Newport, VT favorite for years. The Dancing Sail Banquet Room's elegant waterfront dining room and terrace open onto a garden courtyard to create the ideal setting for a story book Vermont wedding. Whether you are hosting a business meeting, birthday celebration, or special occasion dinner, the East Side is the perfect choice for all occasions.

Brunch with Family

Went here with family after church. Most of us had the brunch buffet. It was very good! The restaurant also had a separate area where they sold chocolate truffles, souvenirs, and had a great deal on clothing items and shoes.

Great location and decor. However, our main meal was obviously frozen seafood sitting in a bath of lukewarm buttery water. Intrusive wedding music. Elusive waiter. Poorly maintained salad bar. Both male and female washrooms were out of order. And worst, an unsympathetic . . . even hostile cashier.

We are locals to this restaurant and we have been there many times, and we love the ambience with the view of the lake. Last night was an extra special evening as my son and his girlfriend decided to get married with very short notice. We contacted the restaurant on Saturday morning for a Monday evening wedding and they were... More

Adrian and I had our wedding and reception at the Eastside's Dancing Sail & Banquet Room in September, of 2015, and were extremely happy with the entire experience! The venue was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, scenery, and affordability! From our first meeting, to the day of the wedding, Dena understood our wedding day... More

I had wonderful meals on two different occasions in July 2015. Both time we sat on the deck in the afternoon sun. The food was wonderful, the beer awesome and the staff super customer service oriented.

I have used the East Side’s banquet room and catering services on multiple occasions over the last few years. Dena and her crew have consistently gone above and beyond to deliver exceptional service and meals for every event. Whether it’s a plated dinner for 100, an outdoor BBQ for 350, breakfast and lunch for 50, or a catered meal in... More

After a bad lunch (review Aug. 22, 2015) at Eastside, my wife and I decided to take a breather from eating there. After 4 months we decided to go back and give it one more try. Great choice! We went to Eastside for lunch on December 26, 2015. We ordered our standard wine and a Triple decker Sandwich with fries.... More

Went for lunch with a friend, very good food and a nice view. The only down side was that it was a little on the expensive side.
