We had earlier reservations
We had earlier reservations than normal so it wasn't very busy or noisy. All of the food was great as well as the service; we will definitely return.

Great place to dine and enjoy music
Great music provided by the DJ group House Hunters! It was amazing!
The food was excellent - this chef knows what he's doing. The server was very nice and friendly. She took care of us well.

This was my third visit and
This was my third visit and each time the food and service were good. I have had the chicken and waffles twice now. I love the bourbon maple sauce and hot sauces that complement the dish.
My husband has had 3 different items and all of them were good also. This visit he had one of the hamburgers. It is nice to be able to order it medium or medium-rare!
The restaurant is nicely decorated, dark and noisy. Not noisy in a bad sense. The tables are kind of close together and seating is limited so I would suggest reservations, BUT we sat at the bar once for dinner and received great service there too.

We had an early reservation
We had an early reservation and were seated right away. The service was excellent as well as the food. Very quaint restaurant with a good ambiance. The only draw back was they did not offer iced tea.

Good Food Poor Value
The food was good, a little on the salty side, but very well prepared and tasty. The waitress was attentive and quick. We didn't think for the price the food was a good value and we didn't like not being able to substitute the sides. You are told you have to purchase a different side if you don't want the one it come with. The restaurant is more of a bar and the surroundings are basic. If it's supposed to be a pub the food is too high priced, if it's supposed to be a fancy restaurant it's too basic.

Bar food on another level
The parking situation around dinner time can be a hassle. However, it is worth the effort..
They take classic comfort food dishes and upscale them to a higher level. For example, they make home made tater tots that come with a trulle aioli and a carrot nest - they are fantastic. I went with my son, and he had a great burger and upgraded to the truffle parmesan fries, which were excellent. I had chicken and waffles, which was a well seasoned and nicely fried boneless breast, served on a sweet potato waffle. The waffle is topped with a cinnamon whisky butter and the dish is served with a Crown Royal syrup and home made hot sauce. This allows you to mix and match sweet and hot as you work your way through the dish. Overall quite excellent.

The food was excellent! Delicious and nicely presented. We had the Lamb special, Lobster Mac n Cheese and the Grandpa burger. All very good. The place was not crowded at 6 on a Friday night, so it was quiet with good service. Very enjoyable!

We are from out of town and
We are from out of town and found this on website. It was a complete shot in the dark and it was an amazing choice. We got the spinach and artichoke dip and the dip and pita triangles were amazing. In addition I got a fish taco per my moms recommendation and it was a great surprise. For dinner I wanted something light and got the vegetable pasta and my husband got the blackened chicken pasta both were incredible. The service was also outstanding! Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing and a would definitely recommend and go again.

Lovely Dining Spot
Great food, lovely ambiance, and great service. What more can you ask for, and the lobster Mac n cheese is terrific. Try it for your next date night.

Great service, atmosphere and food!
Great ambience about the place and has a darker contemporary atmosphere. Waitstaff was fantastic and attentive, I had the flank steak. So good! I choose it over the chicken & waffles. Such a hard decision but know I will now have to come back for the c&w. My date had the salad with bacon vinegarette. We were excited about it only to find the the dressing tasted only like bacon grease... interesting but maybe just off night for it. I figured it would be more like a vinegarette infused with bacon pieces. We also had the lobster Mac and cheese as a side item and it was fantastic! Overall great experience at 21 east and we will be back.

One of our new Favorite places. Food and service were excellent.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sort of like an upscale manhattan bar with great food. I say kid friendly but I would not recommend it for really you children, mostly because the seating is tight and its quite dark. I love the home made tater tots and the burger was very good, as were the parmesan truffle fries. Overall a good place and we'll go back for sure.

Very Good Food & Service
Small place located in downtown area with very good food and service. Have a large selection of drinks if you have a need. Food prices are reasonable for what you get.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I heard great things about some items on the menu, which is why I made reservations to take a group of friends. We loved the entrees we ordered! The Lobster Mac and Cheese was delicious as were the tacos- especially the fried crawfish! We will come back to try more from the menu.

Wonderful Food! A bit loud
The food was wonderful. The restaurant is small thankfully we made reservations; but we were seated right by the front door; I would ask for a less obvious table. The noise level was loud and then they turned up the music while we were still eating which made it more difficult to carry on a conversation. Mind you, this was only at 7:30pm...hardly party hour.
All in all, I would definitely go back again. You MUST GET the Beet Salad and the Chicken and Waffles. Everyone at our table ordered something different and no one was disappointed!

Chicken and Waffles are delish.
Chicken and Waffles are delish. Friend had the Buttermilk Fried chicken and said it was the best dinner he's ever had downtown. I had the halibut with shrimp and loved it. There is something for everyone at all price points.
Just a great place and hidden away just off Main Str. Great value for the food. Can't wait to go back.

We are going back again this weekend to try the burgers!!!!!

The grouper that was on special was delicious. The only thing missing was a great piece of bread to sop of the amazing sauce. My husband had the meatloaf that is definitely not your mother's meatloaf! Amazing!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My boyfriend and I were recommended to try this restaurant from a friend. It did not disappoint us. The chicken and waffles exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back.

Good place for couples
Very nice place, food was very good, drinks were awesome, service was a bit slow though, all in all a good first time experience

Food was great. Service was great. Lighting was weird and noise level did not allow for easy conversation. If not for the strange lighting we would go back because the rest of the experience was wonderful.

This was my second dining experience at 21 East. My first was almost 6 months ago, and it wasn't very impressive; the food was amazing though, so we decided to give it a second chance. I am so glad we did. The food was incredible, as before, but additionally, the service was very good and the ambiance was very nice. I think we just had a bad night before, it was Artisphere so maybe that was why.
We really enjoyed it and will definitely return!

The atmosphere was very comfortable, small lighted candle on the table!! The service was great! We ordered the Chicken and Waffles and our food was delicious! We will definitely return!

Delicious Delicious Delicious!
The food is amazing! Everything from the salads, to the tacos, to the lobster mac and cheese! If you are looking for a tasty dinner and a fun atmosphere, head to 21 East! I always enjoy what I order when I eat here. Happy hour ended at 7:30 and my date and I came just in time to take advantage of $4 glasses of house wine. We enjoyed our night and our menu selections hit the spot!
