Walked into the restaurant late afternoon by myself and requested a table for 10, 7 children ( 5 to 10 yrs), 3 adults. Staff quickly put tables together and Jennifer, our waiter, quickly set the table with water and crayons before the kids arrived. She...explained that it be best if there was distractions and drinks ready immediately on their arrival so there would be fewer immediate child requests. This proved true! The children arrived in a wave and Jennifer had their orders in no time. A root beer spill was handled like it hadn’t even happened. Food was brought quickly for the children because, as Jennifer said, happy busy kids means peace for everyone. Food was very good, tasty and exactly as ordered even with some requested substitutions. Jennifer even suggested what turned out to be an excellent entree that worked perfect for my smaller appetite I would return anytime!More

Had lunch there today with a friend. We both had the crispy chicken wraps with fries. The shoestring fries are excellent -- as were the wraps. Enough food to bring some home. Our server Jazzmyn was fantastic. $36 cost with no beverages.

We were there for lunch with my very elderly parents. The staff seemed to know my parents well and were patient with them. The food was good as I had a salmon and pasta meal while everyone else had regular spaghetti. Overall we had a...good experience. One quibble, is that the music is too loud in the restaurant.More

Sisters and I had a nice dinner out this week. We arrived fairly early on a Tuesday night and was very quiet which meant we were seated quickly, orders taken quickly and food arrived quickly.....maybe a little too quickly. We weren’t even finished our salads...before our entrees arrived. Food was hot, and tasty. Waitress was pleasant, but a little too present as I think she was looking for something to do... Again food was good.More

Service was great and food was yummy. Was there for lunch and it wasn’t busy so it was fast and tasty. Couldn’t say if it would be better when more people are there. Will go back again.

Fresh garlic bread arrived quickly, drink served promptly and didn't wait long for my food. Plate was warm so all the food stayed warm longer - good!

Despite having tried 3 restaurants first to find one open for Sunday lunch we found a good meal at East Side Mario's We were seated at a booth but the 3 of us were too crowded and moved to a table. My wife had a...pasta dish with meatballs added, our son had a club wrap and I had a veal Sammy. We enjoyed our meals. I would suggest a table if you wear an extra large.More

I am disabled myself, just because there are no buttons to push, does not mean that a person in a wheelchair is unable to make it into the establishment.
