The reviews I read were one hundred percent correct. I brought my extended family there after my sons BU graduation and was not disappointed. Daniel was our waiter and he could not have been more helpful. Food 5 stars and service 5 stars, you can't beat that combination

Holiday Inn Staff Member Dana recommended we go here. She was right on. Salads and soups to start were very good. Then the main course came and there was no way we could finish our plates. I had a full plate of different seafood's on top of pasta. i had enough for another meal the next day. Friendly serves. Nice people safe area.

Went to East Side for dinner on March 17 at 7:20 pm. Our order was taken promptly and enjoyed toasted ravioli appetizer. Here is where the nightmare begins. There was only two wait staff, who were also working the bar making drinks. We were totally ignored, at 8:45 the waitress came by for the first time to see if we needed anything, I said yes, our dinner or we are leaving. Five minutes later, she came out with dinner , but it was for the table next to ours. So we walked out. I have never walked out of a restaurant before, can you imagine arriving at a restaurant at 7:20 pm and no dinner served by 9 pm. I feel they were short staffed , maybe workers called out with the the St Patricks Day Flu. It's hard to rate a restaurant when you don't eat

This is a great corner restaurant and bar. The service was great, friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food was great and plenty of leftovers. We'll definitely be going back.
