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.

Great place for Drinks on the water at sunset!

The Eastside has the best docks for sitting right on the Lake and having drinks at sunset. REALLY nice!!! And Canadian customers arriving by boat, a great international feel. :) Don't know about the food, but the atmosphere is great and drinks were good.

My wife and I were recommend to stop by the Eastside Restaurant on the way back to Montreal. It is off the beaten path and were not sure it would be worth the effort. WOW were we mistaken. I would say this is one of the best restaurants I have eaten in Vermont. The lakeside patio is large and the... More

We stopped here on our way back from Montreal. Newport is not very far south of the U.S. and Canadian border. It was well past lunch time on a “gray” day, and we were getting hungry. Had to stop for gas, and saw a sign to the Eastside and decided to check it out . We are so glad we... More

We have been going to the Eastside restaurant for many years. The food is usually great. They have a nice salad bar, great Mother's Day brunch (great!) and amazing view of the lake. In summer you can sit outside on the deck and take in the view of the water. Service is normally good. A nice venue for weddings and... More

Eastside is the biggest restaurant in town, but it isn't the best, it isn't even good. The service is poor, and the food is just as bad. It once was a good place to eat, but each year we see the quality go down and down. We no longer eat there, as the poor service and less than average food... More

I love salad bar so when this came with most dishes I was very happy. But this salad bar had more than the average selections and very good. The staff did nothing but hustle and answered all requests. We sat on the deck during sunset and it was beautiful. This has to be one of the nicest view points on... More

Lovely location by the lake in Newport. Relaxing place to have dinner at the end of the day. Menu has a good mix of options from full meals to pub fare to salads. Full salad bar is offered with any dinner ordered and can be added on to pub menu selections. I would go back but would skip the fish... More

We moved to Newport last year and for the first time wanted to enjoy a Sunday Morning Buffet so we went to the Eastside Restaurant. While the location is nice, even in the winter, this place is dated and looks 'tired'. The food at the buffet reflects the ambiance, unexciting selection of warm food, which tastes as if it was...
