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

After a day of hiking on the parkway we wanted a good burger. We happened upon this restaurant and were not disappointed. There are some good beers on tap as well. We shared the spinach artichoke dip with pita. The generous serving was warm cheesy and was more than enough for two. My daughter liked the south of the border... More

Stopped by here for late lunch. Lots of cars in the lot, which I felt was good sign. Service was prompt, friendly and the food was excellent. Obvious that this place is a neighborhood favorite.

My family was visiting the Folk Art Center off the Blue Ridge Parkway and we searched Trip Advisor for a lunch place close by. East Village Grill looked like a good find. Easy to reach off the BRP on NC-70. Nice clean interior. Good menu variety. We shared some sandwiches, salads and soups. All were well prepared and very good.... More
