East Side Marios has become my favorite place to eat in Cranbrook. Lots of great food options, fantastic service, and it's hard to get enough of that starter bread. Love the personal TVs at each table in the lounge - great for NHL playoffs.

Stopped in for dinner while in town on a business trip. The service was prompt and efficient. Had the broiled salmon with pasta, and Italian Wedding soup for a starter. Both were excellent! Decent prices on all their fare too!

nice food, very 'italian' atmosphere - pictures, décor etc. visited on a weekend night and was very surprised to find it all but empty! service was very quick! server most helpful, pleasant and smiling. Found the menu ok, but not much choice if you didn't want Italian style food - should have gone somewhere else for this I suppose!!

It is always a plesure when dinning here. The staff are friendly and the food is yummy! My family attends dinners here together several times a year. We all get together, parents and grandparents and wr do not have a small family, but east side accomidates us by moving several tables together.

It's been a year since we visited East Side Mario's. We ate there again this week and we still rate this Italian restaurant highly. We like the décor and atmosphere. Entering the establishment, a hostess greeted us cheerfully and quickly found us a booth. Within minutes Rae-Lyn appeared and took our drink order. By the time she returned we had... More

Poor choice of decor. Very random. Awkward feel. Bad management. High turn around poor staff picks. High price. BAD FOOD! Had better frozen meals. Would have rather stayed home & had nothing. Stay away! Especially if doing a family outing or get together. It's a One & done establishment.

Food was good. Service was pleasant. This is a family restaurant so wondering why so many "private" poker games involving the owner.
