    Out with my husband, our son and myself to celebrate my husbands milestone 60th birthday. Crab cakes were good,( usually order these) and house salad fresh and huge (where's the beet salad). Cowboy steak, very fatty but good flavor. B boy had the special, grouper, good but very small portion. I had chix w spinach and linguini, kind of a forgettable dinner, disappointed. We didn't order dessert because there was nothing that sounded appealing (only 3 items on the list) Very nice waiter. Had to ask for bread after seeing every other table had it.( Very good small warm rolls with butter) Don't you hate that. Been here before, will try other places for special dinner.

    Made a reservation for a party of six - we were promptly seated in a corner table - the restaurant is quite loud, made conversation difficult. The server was charismatic and very prompt. The food however, was very bland and not well seasoned, specifically the breaded scallops - claimed to be cooked in wine and lemon? Scallops wrapped in bacon were great, tiramisu was HUGE and delicious. Overall the apps and desserts were the highlights, main courses needed adjustments.

    A group of ten of us got together outside for a drink and then inside for Sunday lunch. Our request for a semi round table was granted and drinks were forthcoming quickly which was good. The waiter might have been new as he had trouble remembering who ordered what and was trying to be too clever. Maybe it's hard to remember that guests come for dinner not for entertainment from the waiter! The Caesar salad and the oysters were very good. The sea bass was too dry though, but my husband would not send it back....his hangup! Other visits have been better so we will meet there again.

    My husband and I live on the Cape and wanted to meet our 2 daughters and 14 month granddaughter who live in Boston for brunch. We thought Plymouth was a good meeting point and choose East Bay Grille. We were seated outside which was what we wanted, however their was a big tent in the way so we did not have a view. Our waitress was very good and the food was delicious, so I would definitely recommend the restaurant.

    We dined at the East Bay Grill for our Wedding Anniversary. My husband per usual ordered the lobster roll which he raves about. I ordered one of the specials for the night. My meal was tasty but I felt it did not warrant the price. Overall we had a good time and will go back. We love dining outside as the view is fantastic.

    I have eaten lunch at the East Bay Grille before with friends, and always on the patio--never in the interior dining room. We again asked to be seated on the patio overlooking Plymouth Harbor. The view was spectacular and will be etched in our collective memories as we begin to encounter hints of fall weather. My lobster roll was (as always, very good) and my very pregnant daughter-in-law attacked the Belgian waffles with gusto. Both my husband and son devoured their hamburgers that were cooked exactly as ordered. My spicy Bloody Mary was perfect and hit the spot. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. My only recommendation would be to expand the brunch menu beyond a few specials. We always walk away with a smile.

    We had a table for 4 by the window. The hostess was very nice and accomodating, food was very good, but our server could have been more attentive and seemed a bit annoyed (maybe hoping for a bigger tab). We had hearty appetizers and then salads with toppings and drinks, but no desert. Other than the waiter, our experience was enjoyable!

    The acoustics are terrible, and always have been even back when the place was Dern & McGrath's. The air conditioning was being over used and my "date" a 96 year old friend was too cold, even I in my 50's found it to be chilly but the waiter came to the rescue and provided her with a tee shirt to drape over her shoulders! Next time we will be prepared with sweaters. The food and service are excellent!

    Once again the East Bay Grill never fails to impress! From the Valet parking to the Hostess who directed us to a lovely linen set table on the gorgeous patio overlooking the Plymouth Bay, to our server who was both efficient and read perfectly our wish to leisurely stroll through dinner while we caught up with old friends, to the wonderful food which had everyone uttering mmmm.....It was all perfect. Fun night. Beauitiful evening out on Plymouth Bay. Would def recommend it to anyone.

    We had a reservation for 7 and were not seated til 740 while sitting there we watched numerous parties of the same size who did not have reservations seated before us. When we were seated we were sat at plastic tables with no center piece silverware or salt and pepper shakers and basically shoved into a corner. The waitress brought out a bottle of wine instead of the champagne we asked for and didn't notice her mistake til she poured the whole bottle. Felt like we were treated very second rate even though we abided by the dress code that pther people at the restraint did not. Very disappointing.

    We took my mom here for her birthday dinner. The food (Caesar Salad, Steak, Steak Tips, calamari, and pasta with butter for the kiddos) was delectable! The rolls were fresh out of the oven... Our server was Bre and she was phenomenal. She was very friendly and always had a smile! I have a food allergy (garlic) and they were very accommodating. I also noticed a lot of gluten free options. I can't forget valet.. They were also very nice and let us leave the car while we walked to get ice cream.

    We made reservations for 7:00, showed up a little early to have a drink or 2 at the bar before we sat. They were able to seat us early, which we took advantage of. Both of our children, ages 11 and 14 loved their food as well as my wife and I. Our waitress was good, and the service was good as well. You can sit outside on a first come first served basis. Next time we go we will try to get an outside table overlooking Plymouth Harbor. Live bands on Friday night are a good take as well.

    Everything was very good, except 2 of 5 people had the Everything Tuna and asked for very rare and waiter said it's always served rare but both came over done with just a little pink showing. Also, as an aside the daily specials just didn't seem special, a restaurant right on the water and next to fishing boats should have great fish specials and the fish of the day was wahoo?

    My husband & I have been there many times & love it! This is the 2nd time I've been there with a group & still love it. The waiter was fabulous, very attentive, professional & lots of fun. Food is always great, plentiful, nicely plated, fresh & delicious. Our group of 6 loved the lobster roll, Caesar salad with grilled shrimp & the scrod lunch. Would highly recommend it for couples & groups. We never felt rushed. The free valet parking is an added bonus. (Of course we tipped the valets!) Will definitely return.

    Was there on a Monday, which is typically less busy, however tonight was packed and they were short staffed. The staff was great and on many occasions we saw them literally running with food and orders. They really stepped up. The food was very good, nice selections and good local fishes. Definitely something for everyone.

    The food at East Bay Grille was very good and the physical surroundings are lovely. We had a reservation for 4. When we arrived, we were seated promptly. When our friends arrived a few minutes later, they were also seated promptly...in another room. It was only by accident that we found them! Our waiter was very rushed and quite perfunctory in his service. It is a nice place and customers should not feel as if they are in a fast food joint!!
