We went in for lunch and we were one of 3 tables seated in our area. We ordered quickly and our bread was brought to the table immediately but without our drinks. Several minutes later a server came to clean up our bread plates and said oh nobody brought your drinks? We then waited an additional 20 minutes for someone... More

You can't go wrong with east side Marios and their unlimited salad. I prefer the garden salad, but the Caesar salad is very good as well.

All you can eat bread and salad. Kids love it! Pasta dishes are good. Quite tasty. Consider it is a chain restaurant, it does serve good food. Good value for the dollar spent.

ESM emailed me a coupon which sounded like a good deal, but when I took the wife and kids for dinner there, the waitress pointed out the fine print, and said that people come in under misdirection all the time. We stayed, we ate, and the food was decent... but when you feel tricked its hard to return.

My boyfriend took me and my daughter to East Side Marios for my birthday on Jan 3/17 as it used to be my favourite place to eat. We travelled an hour to get there. When we got there, my boyfriend told the waiter it was my birthday. He stated "Oh, we will get together a bunch and sing, and you... More

There were a lot of children there for a tournament and the adults were louder than the kids. They just shouted over them instead of asking them to be quieter. I do not expect kids to be silent but they should not be allowed to yell but that seems to be the norm since adults do not seem to discipline.... More

Lunch included Margherita Fritta (cold and over-fried dough), Seafood Linguini (just warm making the seafood rubbery), and a kids chicken fingers (the best dish of the meal). Waitress was very nice and accommodating - adjusting the kids' dessert. Too bad she has to serve crappy food.
