Saw the guy making a salad in a bowl he had carried in his armpit (got our waitress to stop him before it got served)and a waitress was picking her teeth then picked up a plate of food from the kitchen. Veggies were practically raw. At least the steak was cooked right and our waitress was amazing.

Love going there, they have the best spinach dip sauce ever. Good service and lots of options in the menu. Only thing is sometimes the place is very busy and we had to wait for our food/ drinks for a long time.

I went with my in-laws and two sons for supper. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the service was impeccable. Salads were prompt and there was just enough time in between courses. Unlike most East Side Mario's, it wasn't unbearably loud.

This is actually one of the better ESM's that we have been to. The food is consistently good and the staff is friendly, Used to go more when they had NTN, wish they would get it back! My son loves the Shirley Temples, they come with cotton candy.

Dined there recently with a friend...on Family Day. The place was packed but the service was excellent as was the dinner. All our small requests were taken care of immediately. Really well organized considering the crowd.

Awesome food, but the restaurant is very LOUD. I find some wait staff are unfriendly and pushy sometimes. Others are great.

A group of 10 of us visited East Side Mario's in Owen Sound to celebrate our boys from graduating their DP1 Infantry Soldier training. Both the food and service were very good. The portions did not leave you hungry, the salad was fresh, the pizza was pipping hot and our waitress was bubbly and got everyone's order right. As well... More

Consistent fare and food from this chain. Service was chipper and prompt, I'm a fussy solo eater and all my requests were perfectly noted and completed. Nothing beats the value of ESM but in this case they had arranged a 10% discount with the local Travelodge Hotel where I was staying, awesome.
