Time and Time again the Greenside delivers. Great fish and chips, steaks, meatloaf and Udon noodles. If you have time for dessert please enjoy the molten lava cake.

The Greenside is a nice casual restaurant in the East Mountains. Everything I have ordered has been good, but nothing is really exceptional. It has a nice, dog-friendly patio.

This place never disappoints. The staff is very friendly and the food is consistently good. The menu seems to have something for everyone and the beer and wine are certainly appreciated. This is a staple to the east mountains and we enjoy our visits.
