Description: 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.

Our previous experience with Newport has been minimal. Just a stop for a gas fill up on our way to Quebec. On a recommendation from someone in Jeffersonville (on vacation at Smugglers Notch)we took the drive up. Very glad we did. I had the shrimp risotto which was delicious and perfect. My husband had the ground pork burger which he... More

A rest stop on our way home and just lucked onto this cute spot for supper. We all enjoyed the wide,healthy and delicious salad bar selection. Everything was market fresh with no artifical flavors. I will definately return on my way to or from the USA via Stanstead border again. More to explore in Newport also....!

Been to The Eastside many times and will likely continue to go many more, but this last visit was not so good. I mean why try to pass Fish Chowder off as Clam Chowder- it's not! And not even good Fish Chowder at that. So I also tried the Ultimate BLT- - ultimately the bacon was cooked many hours before... More

Eating on the deck on a nice day cannot be better: pleasant view on the lake and the mountains, tables not too close to each other, umbrellas for the sun. You cannot say that the food is imaginative but it is a nice American menu and what they make, they make it well. We were there twice this summer. Once... More

My wife loves hash, I'd never given it a thought... but she said this place had the best and now I'm hooked. It's also a great place to have lunch or dinner, they also have a gift shop with a bakery that will have you leaving with something else.

We have stopped here for lunch on 3 occasions as it is superbly located when driving to Quebec City. If the weather is nice, try and sit on the deck. The views of the lake and boats is great. Food is mostly pub style. Entree salads are large, fresh, and seasonal. Sandwiches are Vermontly creative usually using cranberries. Service is... More

I ate at the Eastside Restaurant on a rainy evening but the view of the lake was still good and I can only imagine how nice it is in the summer months. The salad bar was substantial and had good selections. I ordered a steak that was seasoned and cooked perfectly. I passed on dessert. I will definitely return to... More

We ate lunch there when we arrived in Newport for a Sat wedding. Later that evening we were back for the rehearsal dinner, and Sunday after mass for brunch. The food was always nicely prepared, We especially liked the use of local vegetables. So tasty. The place is always filled with locals and tourists. The views of the lake are... More

We are so glad we chose to eat at the Eastside Restaurant. We went early to avoid having to wait for a table and were seated within 5 minutes. My husband ordered the scallops marinated in maple syrup and butter and I had the seafood with scallops, shrimp and lobster over linguini. Both dishes were outstanding. The salad bar that... More
