Thursday about 8 pm, not crowded, nice and relaxed, friendly waiter. We had a smothered hamburger steak and "chicken gyros" which were both pretty good. (It was marinated chicken chunks with onions, triangles of pita bread, and a sort of unauthentic Greek salad). Good drinks. Quiet group at the bar. Nothing was bad, but confusing. Starting with the name "East... More

I don't usually eat wings very often, but was convinced by co-workers to try the Tiger Wings & they were excellent! Great, attentive service.

We enjoyed trying the Highland Brewery, just up the road and decided to give these folks a try. The menu is "Greek centric," thus AWESOME! Everyone throughly enjoyed their meal. I had the Mediterranean Chicken, but sub'd the chicken for shrimp. It was VERY tasty and satisfying. We ALL highly recommend the East Village Grill!

Stopped for lunch looking for a great Reuben. Found it. Tender, well prepared and delicious. My wife had the Chicken Caesar Rollup. It was of the same quality as the Reuben. Service was courteous and friendly.

From the outside it appears to be just like any other bar and grill. We stopped with family and enjoyed the atmosphere. The service was friendly and prompt. The beer was cold and the food was good. Would definitely recommend giving it a try.

My wife and I ate here after a day trip touring the mountains. We ordered a chef salad and ribs the portions were huge, of high quality, and served fast. I would return here again.

The smell in the parking lot alone makes this place worth the trip! The menu is diverse without being overwhelming and there is something for everyone. The stand out dishes were the meatloaf (seriously it is better than your mom's) and tiger chicken sandwich. The tiger sauce is like buffalo's sophisticated older sister, great buffalo flavor amped up with a... More

Had a great meal with a very friendly waitress portion size was perfect for me and entirely to much for my mom. Ordered the mystery beer and was a great surprise delicious not just something they may have been trying to get rid of and it came in a brown bag so it really was a mystery. Great fun

Thank you very much for joining us on Tuesday, and we greatly appreciate your kind words. We hope to see you again and next time for your mom ask if we have a smaller portion size, with some of our dishes we can accommodate that request. More
