“Awful”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

A pizza place that tries to be an Italian restaurant which would be ok if the food was any good. Awful pizza, awful pasta entrees, awful salad. The service,well.... not trained well, but not the deciding factor. The atmosphere, at this one anyway, was horrible. All I could think about was getting out of there. This was the first time I've eaten at an East Side Mario's and only decided to try it as we were traveling and staying in a hotel across the street. We noticed later that it is a chain restaurant and that explains a lot. I wouldn't even bother with a review for an establishment like this, however, I was so disappointed with the whole experience.

“Lots of salad and bread!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Entrees were very filling and tasty so avoid filling up on the unlimited salad and delicious bread! You will not get to dessert!

“What portions sizes? in fact what food?”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We have just returned from another holiday in Muskoka, Huntsville region. Whilst there we found ourselves at the shopping mall where East Side Marios resides buying some provisions for our trip.

Okay, it's lunchtime and we are hungry, Marios looks good so lets go and try the food............
We were seated and given menus immediately, then spent the next 15 minutes waiting for someone to come and take our order, or at least ask if we would care for a drink while we decide.
There was no shortage of staff, they outnumbered the customers 2 to 1 but that didnt mean they were going to give us any service or attention.

Eventually my stomach screamed 'has my throat been cut?' and it was time to go elsewhere.

I cannot comment on whether the food, drinks or even the water are any good as none were offered, if you are willing to wait an eternity to be served while staff walk past you repeatedly ignoring you and if you have had a healthy breakfast to keep your strength up, then maybe you will enjoy this experrience, we would rather have reasonable service to enable us to continue our intended holiday of enjoying the beauty of Muskoka.

A very poor show Mario's

“Enjoyed new item on the Menu”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We stopped for lunch and it was wonderful. I tried a new item on the menu and enjoyed it a lot. It was a pasta roll with ricotta cheese, spinach and seasonings in a rose sauce. Very filling entree. The house salad came to the table and had no dressing on it. No problem for the waitress who promptly got a container of dressing for the shared salad bowl within minutes. The coffee, even though it was hot, was not very good. It seem to be a little too mild tasting. The big plus for this place was the service. Our server, Mary, was excellent.
