“East Side Marios no longer exists - it's a Cheesecake Cafe now”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

East Side Mario's in Spruce Grove is no more.
It is a Cheesecake cafe now. It currently is hiring staff, and not open to the public yet.

“met our needs”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We were behind schedule, and needed to leave the restaurant in time to arrive at the cinema in time see our movie. We had an hour. The hostess and the waiter, both understood and each made suggestions that worked. The waiter probably suggested to the kitchen we need our meal quickly. HOWEVER, speed is pointless if the meal is lousy. HOWEVER, the food was excellent, AND we were out the door in time to get to the theatre in time to catch the start of our movie.

“Avoid at all costs.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Spruce Grove, AB location. My chicken parmesan was terrible. The breading was soft and gross and peeled off the chicken which looked like a ground preformed patty.. When I sent it back, they took 50% off the price. The waitress said she'd speak to the manager. He walked by our table several times and never stopped. The St, Albert, AB location is only slightly better. The food was below average.

“Poor service”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

The service was all but non existant and our food ( four adults), was delivered to the table at different intervals, not all at once. I personally had to wait while I watched the others dine. I have not returned. I had ordered a Philisteak and it was tough.

“Terrible experience!!!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Cold food, slow service!!! Stay Away!!!

Always short staffed and no management on shift ever.
There is no sense of urgency with regards to the customer.
Cannot believe someone would run a customer focused business like this!
