I'd never seen an East Side Mario's attached to a hotel before. Weird. Anyway, I had some time to kill before my afternoon flight so I stopped by for lunch. It was fine, the server was nice and took good care of me.

I have had their Hell's Kitchen Chicken multiple times so far and I am still feeling that I did not had it enough. Simply loved it. Friendly staff and loads of parking spots. Very close from the International airport. Another great item on their menu is Bassa Fillet

I really enjoyed East Side Mario's they have a good vegetarian selection their prices aren't to high and the staff are very attentive. I managed to get a lovely veggie lunch for a good price. This place has a lovely sports bar atmosphere which I love and I'm sure when there is a game on this place is bouncing really... More

My family had dinner here and enjoyed all of it. The staff could not have been nicer. The food was quick and the new additions to the menu that we tried, were delicious. Although not fancy and a bit loud, we always enjoy the meal we have at this chain.

we were staying at the attached Holiday Inn, were late getting in, so went for dinner. We just had appetizers, but they were fine. Breakfast was included at the hotel. Could order anything off the menu. Breakfast was great, hot and service was good. Would recommend using this restaurant when staying at the Holiday Inn.

I went to eat here as was staying in Holiday Hotel while on business. Went about 930PM. Service was great. Food was Ok. Got the Lasagna and it was good but not outstanding. The vegetable soup was heavy on water and light on vegetables. Also the soup was heavy on salt. Overall OK.

A typical fast food type of place and menu. There are lots of fresh seafood places I preferred so I only went here a few times when the weather was very wet or when I was tired.

Thanks Danielle & Olivia for truly making our visit to Newfoundland a great experience. This was our first day in the province, and we'd been recommended by trip advisor AS WELL as our car rental guy, to go to the Duke of Duckworth for a meal. We walked in there and walked straight back out. Not our kind of atmosphere... More

It was Canada Day, so the place was very busy. They still managed to serve us pretty quickly. Food was okay - typical ESM.

Thank Bill D
