Driving back from Quebec to Massachusetts, we needed to stop for a bite. The visitor's center over the border was closing, but the woman working suggested Eastside. She had pre-printed directions; obviously, this restaurant is recommended frequently. Approaching the restaurant, we realized we have been...More

Took a ride around Vermont today. Ended up in Newport for lunch. The East Side is one of the nicest places to eat in Newport. Service is excellent and food very good. Too bad it was raining, or we would have lunch on the Deck.

We had driven around Lake Memphremagog, mostly in Canada, earlier in the day. It seemed appropriate to dine by its shore, even though we couldn't see the lake itself in the autumn evening dark. The menu had many tempting offerings, but my dinner partner and...More

Famous for it's hearty comfort food, the East Side offers fine dining on the shores of beautiful Lake Memphremagog. When you're traveling, nothing hits the spot better than a homemade buttermilk biscuit with chicken, gravy, real mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. If you have room for the bake shops, dessert of the month, you'll know why the East Side has been a Newport, VT favorite for years. The Dancing Sail Banquet Room's elegant waterfront dining room and terrace open onto a garden courtyard to create the ideal setting for a story book Vermont wedding. Whether you are hosting a business meeting, birthday celebration, or special occasion dinner, the East Side is the perfect choice for all occasions.
