“Disappointed Vegan at The East Side Eatery”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Sorry, so wanted to love this place but I was really disappointed. I was told they had vegan pizza and they do but not by the slice...So I asked what else on the menu they would recommend and this is another resturant that thinks you can offer vegans anything on the menu and just remove the meat and/or cheese (usually a key ingredient) and not replace it with anything and call it vegan. I want a grilled veggie sandwich on gluten free bread. The bread was stale and fell to pieces when I tried to cut the sandwich in half. The sandwich was also really small, maybe 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and because the leave off the cheese and aioli sauce it was pretty bland. That's not alot of veg for a meal. We were there early for dinner and we did have excellent service.

“WOW! Great food and excellent service.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

This was my first trip here...it was a beautiful sunny afternoon and I sat outside. The server guy was incredibly friendly, prompt and helpful. I strayed away from the pizza and took the server's recommendation of the fish and chips. It was phenomenal, especially since many places throw a previously frozen, boxed product in a deep fryer and call it their own. This fish and chips was out of this world. The pieces of cod were cut into long "finger" shapes, and breaded with a wonderfully seasoned breading. It was perfect in every way, and was even more perfect with the Santa Cruz Red Ale IPA that I had with it. I will be returning soon to check out their pasta and pizza!

“Good Food”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

This place had good food! the service was really slow but worth the wait. On a nice sunny day the patio is the best place to sit & enjoy the day =]
