Our food was not cooked properly , sauce had no flavour and meatballs where over cooked almost burnt ! Salad and wedding soup was great. We where given 5.00 off the bill ! We found the restaurant somewhat untidy and not manage to support staff or customers .

We were seated quickly, server nice. Was brought their bread stick with butter. As we were eating it, we asked what kind of butter and were told it was margarine. Well we both stopped eating it. Salads came, i ordered Tossed and my boyfriend order Caeser. The Caeser salad looked like someone just dumped a bottle of dressing on and... More

My wife and I stopped in here for a couple beers and app on Tuesday, May24, around 7pm or later. We sat at the bar, greeted by Scott, who wasn't on bar but was more than happy to help us, I think he was just helping out, since the bartender was busy, the restaurant wasn't packed but I guess she...

It was poor... Food was no better than going to fast food. Our server Jenn didn't look happy to be there.. The service was very slow and it was 3:30pm, not busy at all. There were drunk guys at the bar that were too loud and rude. I had my three kids with us too. The menu portrays like it... More

My friends and I met for dinner and decided to split the pizza which came with the unlimited salad. Our waiter provided decent service, bringing us our drinks and food in good time. We chose the extra large pizza with 5 different items and both the Caesar salad and house salad which we started eating while waiting for the pizza.... More

Arrived at 4, prompty seated and then our waiter arrived. Our waiter Ron was so prompt and unobtrusively attentive that he could be serving in a gourmet 5 star venue in any international city. Over the hour we were there and business steadily picked up, the happy and smiling staff adjusted and worked beautifully together. It's clear they enjoy what... More

Met family here for lunch on a Sunday. I was looking for the all you can eat soup and salad combination. Started off with a Caesar Salad which although being a good sized serving was way too heavy on the salad dressing. Our waitress started off being very attentive checking with us often. For my soup I went with Roasted... More

Its been quite a few years since I have eaten at East Side's. I was pleasantly surprised that not much has changed. The bread is still complimentary and delicious, most of the classic pastas, soups and salads are still available and its still a good place for a quick lunch.

Went last night for a casual dinner with my wife. Ordered an appetizer to share, bread was never ending hot and delicious, as was the app. She ordered the lasagna, so huge with the enormous salad had to take everything home in containers. Staff very friendly and attentive!
