Food is superb. Need an adequate ventilation system in there because the smoke from the front kitchen will choke you.

Some friends and I had a great time at the bar. Garrett was our bartender. He knew his way around the bar, and he was very friendly! We enjoyed a few cocktails and snacks. I cannot wait to return!

The sweet potato french fries were also good. And my highlight is the hot waitor...didn't get his name but he was tall, dark haired,... More

40 East does not have a lot of ambiance but the quality of the food and the service more than makes up for that. We were amazed by the backlighted menus that made reading about the selections easy. We had not seen this before and every restaurant should include this feature, especially the really dark ones. The menu included a... More

Ate here on a quail hunting trip in Statesboro recently. One of the most upscale restaurants in the downtown area. Service was great, food was fantastic (ribeye was one of best I've had), and the live music on the back porch was very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking out a nice dinner in the area.

Delicious food! And the bartender, Garrett Riggleman, did a great job. I loved the bagel, lox and cream cheese and goat cheese grits. Garret's Bloody Mary is the BEST I've ever had! Definitely a place we will return to!

I always get the grilled vegetable panini but substitute the pesto sauce for balsamic reduction. It comes with a choice of sides, sweet potato fries, chips, fresh fruit and a few others. There is a nice outside area off of the bar.
