It was frustrating to say the least. We recently visited North Bay, Ont and went to dinner at East Side Mario's. Our waitress seemed so completely flustered and couldn't pull herself together the whole 2 hour plus experience. We ordered drinks and then the food...More

Stopped in for quick lunch. The service was fast an friendly. The chain menu can be counted on for tasty items. They always get me with the unlimited garlic loaf.
