I try to stay away from chain/franchise resteraunt whenever possible but east side Mario's is one of the few that rarely let me down. Always loved the bustling atmosphere and the meals. As always my hells kitchen chicken was great

Had the soup and salad meal the other day for lunch and was pleased to try the tomato soup. Was very rich and flavourful and the service was great!

I ordered takeout. The takeout area was not very nice. The fridge was old with rusty dirty shelves that holds soft drinks and butter. It is the first thing that you see when you enter.

Really friendly waiter, great service, had the marsala and mushroom steak - might be a new item, it was very good. Great Ceasar (drink not the salad although salad was good too).

We eat here fairly often and have for years. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The new decor is ummm... New- I liked the old decor better but !! Lots of TV's for sports or booths for quieter times. Prices are reasonable ( just increased but what hasn't) but the food portions are large and well worth the price.... More

We had a very pleasant meal and although the atmosphere was very noisy, our great server managed to make our visit quite enjoyable. The portions are quite generous and our meals were served at the right temperature.

The food was good however our waitress was very slow. We waited several minutes before the waitress came to ask us our drink order and the slow pace continued throughout the meal.
