We have been to ESM many times, but the last time we went, we've just decided, no more. The service we received was AWESOME. In conversation after, we thought the menu although fine just needs some spicing up. Now the bathrooms. They always smell so bad. A good scrub and some bleach might go a long way to resolving this.

We had spaghetti & meatballs with seasar salad , we also had Seasar bar drinks , a word of caution if your not into a Spicy drink ask for the not spicy because it's really hot . Our meal was excellent, server was quick and came back and asked how our meal is and would we like more hot buns.... More

This is your standard chain restaurant. The food is good and the service at this location is great. They have a lovely patio that overlooks the river, which is why we go here.

Great spaghetti as usual. Got the $14.99 deal which came with piping hot bread and all you can eat soup or salad. Serve was very good as usual.

This is one of the best East Side Mario's I have been in. The food was excellent and the wait staff was out of this world. Kudos to the management for your staff.

Came here for an easy sunday supper and it filled the bill. Stephani, our server was the best part of the meal as she was attentive and brought the food out quickly in addition to making sure we were happy. I had the diavolo calamari to start and chicken tetrazzini. I had the garden salad with my main and it... More

Over the years, I have found that most East Side Mario restaurants have gone downhill in quality. While travelling through the area we want to stop for lunch but our first choice in restaurants was far too busy so we walked up the street to East Side. My five kids, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The waitstaff... More
