This has been a terrific restaurant for so many years and continues to be. The food is always delicious and carefully prepared. My favorites are the etoufee and jambalaya!

A great place for dinner, with nice selection of pasta, seafood, beef, poultry, and pork (New: Blackened alligator). All well-prepped. Selection of Cajun, Asian, American, BBQ flavors. Great bar. Awesome raw bar. Upbeat eatery.

Ordered gumbo that looked and tasted like grey water- obviously watered down. Very disappointed. Used to be better. Just cruising on their past reputation.

We were seated quickly on a Sunday night and the cozy, darker atmosphere is something I enjoy about the Eastside Grill. Our waitress was personable and attentive. I didn't anticipate any problems as we ordered blackened alligator, gorgonzola garlic bread, and spinach artichoke dip with...More
