Dena was very easy to work with and all I had to say was we "love your lobster rolls" at the beginning of the conversation and she put together a menu of the most delectable sandwiches, unbelievably fabulous salads, chicken satay, maple roasted turkey and on and on... Everyone was astounded at the quality of the food and the delicious... More

Thank goodness for them they seem to have boat-loads of retirees coming in on the weekends for the buffet. Beyond the view, there isn't much redeeming about this place. It's almost a tourist trap along the border. We went around brunch time on the weekend. Service was slow (60 min arrive-to-food) and disengaged. The pasta had a little spice but... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over the last 30+ years, and the last few visits have discouraged me from going back anytime soon if at all. Known for being a place that large parties could go to for business dinners, weddings, and the like, my workplace recently held a luncheon there. There were probably around 30 of... More

I have frequented this restaurant with colleagues over the years. I have always found the servers courteous, and the atmosphere fun. The food has always been consistent, and there are plenty of choices on the menu. On my most recent visit, the server handled a group of seven with multiple checks without any issues. A definite place to try if... More

We loved this place! It was fairly busy for a Monday night. We sat out on the deck. Had a sangria served in a French press! Some eclectic choices on a menu that looked like it was printed for a diner but the food was delicious! Good service and a beautiful sunset, too. We will return!

There will be no review about the food here -- for one simple reason. I never received my food order. After a 45 minute wait after ordering and, upon repeated assurances that my server was "working on it," I left. I have no idea what was going on that night --- I watched people sit down at other tables, receive... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by an employee of the hotel we stayed at that evening. I'm very glad we decided to go with his suggestion. I had the orange duck, which was fantastic and followed up with bread pudding for dessert, also tasty. The windows facing the lake were open and we had a lovely breeze to go... More

Eastside is one of our favorite restaurants in the area because of menu selection, food quality and hours of operation. Service is good but can be slow if they are low on staff. Favorites: Seafood Bisque, Whole Belly Clams, Seafood Salad, Louie's Livers .... Located on the southern shore of Lake Memphremagog, seating is indoor and out.

You have not lived if you have not enjoyed a lovely summer's day on the deck overlooking Newport and lake Memphremagog. The food is great, the wait staff superb (many of the lovely ladies have worked there for more than 20 years. The best place in Northern Vt.

Beautiful location on water with deck looking through multiple boat dockings facing sunset .. That's the reason to go. Nicely done salad bar, mashes potatoes were very good, M's prime rib was excellent, my teriyaki pub steak was average .. meat portions skew very large .. Very busy .. Everyone raves about it .. Location for sunset would be lovely.

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.
