Went on a Saturday night with a group of 5 and it was full up. That said, we only had to wait about 15 min to get seated. They have a great selection of Iowa Craft Beer from the towns of Knoxville, Decorah, Newton, Lisbon, Des Moines, Davenport and Amana. We all got Burgers, however the menu also had chicken, and black bean burgers. Anyway all of our burgers were great. I'd go again.

Stopped in here after a track clinic and also happened to be after a home mens basketball game. It was busy but we were seated at one of three two person tables right by the front door. Great waitress and the food came fast even though the place was packed. I chose a number 18 burger that was delicious but the fries could have been cooked a little longer. Will definitely stop here again.

I love Eastside Shorts. I try to eat there once or twice a week with my wife or business colleagues. Have strongly recommended this nice little pub and restaurant with their outstanding burgers and great chicken and black bean burgers. Wings are most excellent as well. The staff is extremely courteous and attentive. I love shorts, but have one little complaint. We had a business meeting there over lunch at the only six top table near the back today. When the wind chill is minus 7 at 12:30pm, maybe the beer leg deliveries should be postponed until lunch is over. My poor female business colleagues by the back door were very cold and uncomfortable throughout our whole lunch from 1230 to 1pm.

Great food, great service, but not a good day for atmosphere.

Great food with funky combinations. They have a great selection of beers also. Count on waiting a bit when busy.

Went on a busy Saturday night. The wait wasn't too long and totally worth it! The beer on tap is local, awesome, and very reasonably priced, and the burgers were amazing. We will definitely make this a regular stop.
