I love this place. I have known the owner and his family for many years. They have several restuarants in the county of SD, but this is my favorite. They have a lot of weekly specials of all kinds. The menu has many delicious burgers, tacos, salads, pizzas, fries, onion rings, sandwiches, and a miriad of drink specials, and on... More

This is the best eatery in all of East County. Nothing on this menu will let you down. Atmosphere is fun and waitresses are happy to serve you. Great selection of beer on tap.

This was the best breakfast I've had in a while. The staff was awesome and friendly. The prices are reasonable at first then you get your food and see you are getting a great deal. Two people could eat off one place. It's a lot of food.

We've been there many times and had good food, drinks and good service. This last time, the sole female bartender could not have cared any less about the customers. It took nearly 20 minutes to get our drinks, because she was too busy chatting. Our waitress was equally as unconcerned. The food took forever and was average at best. As... More

Eastbound is the best bar and grill in town. The atmosphere is so inviting, fun and there is such a sense of community when you walk in. They have all the local Emergency Medical Services patches on the wall and old pictures of Lakeside. Their beer selection is huge and they have the best Bloody Mary's ever that come with... More

We have been going here for 4 years. Lately the experience has left me feeling like....."what happened?" I feel like the menu has lost itself. I used to be excited to try everything now it all arrives cold and blah. If you read my reviews you see that I am an admitted food snob. Once upon a time I was... More

Nice bar and grill to grab a burger and a beer. Sandwhiches are good as well as their salads. Favorite of the locals.

Eastbound is THE place to go and eat and have a cold one either after work, after watching a Softball or Little League game on a Saturday, or anytime you are out in East County. Friendly staff and great food! This place has put most all competition out of business. And they have a great selection of specialty beers!

Thank swesolowski
