We went to this East Side Mario for a late lunch during a weekday. There was no one at the front. After waiting for a while, a lady (I think she is the manager) came out and seated us. Another 5 minutes, the waitress came. More waiting as she was the only one serving customers (4 tables, then two more... More

This has to be my worst dining experience! From the time the server came to offer us our drinks... 1. She did not introduce herself not made us aware of the specials. 2. She never smiled with us UNTIL she brought us the bill. 3. She was quite nice with the "Caucasian" customers. 4. She never recommended any appetizers. 5.... More

Go to dinner with the family Friday night, and be treated poorly and a long wait, Instead of being a wonderful night we were disappointed. Totally a neglect. Note. The food may be weak, but the service needs to be the best. A satisfied customer he would always come back and recommend to others.

We were a group of 22 and were well serviced by our wait staff. Good place for a large group as no one leaves hungry especially with the free bread and soup/salad. Food was yummy, good menu selections. We felt very satisfied with our family dinner. We will definitely be back!

I went there on a busy weekday, but they only had one server. It took a long time for the food to come, but I don't blame them, they didn't have enough staff, I understand. However, the problem I have is that while I was waiting, I was looking at the kitchen and back counter where they prepare the food,... More

The spaghetti and meatballs was awsome and it came with unlimited soup or salad. The sauce was great and meatballs were delicious. The ceasar salad was great and it had real bacon in it. My wife had gluten free pasta with Alfredo sauce and shrimp and it was great. Came on a special green plate to ensure that it was... More

We go to this restaurant always hoping each time the service will get better. The service is always slow and not friendly. The excuse we get each time, we are extremely busy. When we want to talk to the manager Chris, he's busy. He's to busy to apologize?!?! That's poor customer service! The same thing happened with an order we... More

The service at the bar today April 17th was terrible. Took over 15 minutes for the bar tender to even s.how. the nachos with chicken did not meet the expectations. Avoid this place at all cost.
