    For a hotel bar/restaurant this is a very well done experience. There are some nuances to the menu, like no entrees being labeled gluten free when several of them are or can be made GF, but it is a small and easy to choose from menu. The service was great and perfect for a nice sit down experience.

    A friend told me about East Town early August, and I have been twice this month! The staff is super kind, the atmosphere is chic yet relaxed with tons of space, and the food is tasty. I’ve only had the chicken + cereal pancakes (subbed the waffles). The crunch on the chicken has me in a cholk hold!!! I’m a fan.

    We ordered a variety of small plates to share and everything was delicious! Service was great, and the ambience was wonderful. The only minor complaint is that we were supposed to receive bacon pops upon leaving (in return for a review) and despite mentioning it a few times, they never arrived. We had to leave so we couldn’t pursue it further.

    We were in a rush to eat due to a show at Riverside within the hour. They did a great job of getting our food out in time. All of the food was very good. The only negative was that when we arrived, the hostess station was unmanned for about 4 minutes and no one greeted us, so we had no idea what was going on.

    We arrived 30 minutes early, checked in and waited at the bar. The bar had a wide selection and decent happy hour pricing. It was somewhat noisy, but we were able to hear each other talk. While at the bar, one of the staff went to work on unclogging a draft beer drain. The pressure backfired and sprayed us, the bar, and our drinks with drain contents. We had to ask for new drinks with no acknowledgement of the incident, apology or even a clean towel to wipe our clothes/belongings off with. We hunted down the hostess after our reservation time had passed and were immediately seated. Waitstaff was pleasant and attentive. We ordered all you can eat fish fries that were just “okay” and fried cheese curds that were lightly battered and delicious.

    The service was horrible. We ordered our drinks after waiting for fifteen minutes, we then watched as our drinks sat at the bar for another fifteen minutes. Our food was cold after to the point where the butter wouldn’t even melt on the steak, and a $20 fish fry had two pieces of fish and a lot of fries. We were trying to remain positive, however, we waited so long in between ordering and waiting for each next step that we started to get frustrated. Finally, we asked for the check only to wait just under 20 minutes to get a split check. Turns out, the split check was all charged under one card instead of the two handed to the waitress. At this point we had kept our cab waiting trying to figure it out and left disappointed and frustrated. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant!

    Went for Valentine’s Day... our server was sweet but everything else was not great. We didn’t get plates for our bacon jar app and when we did, the underneath one was full of food, it was disgusting. The table was wobbly, so I spilled half my $12 cocktail due to my boobs hitting the table. The 10 oz Wagyu steak was more like 5 oz... we laughed it all off but I don’t know if we will be back. Ambiance is cool.

    Waiter was not checking up much. I sat at the restaurant for over 20 minutes without anyone checking up on me. Food was also way overpriced. I ordered Brussels sprouts as an appetizer. I was really disappointed to get 5 Brussels sprout pieces on my main course plate. Not coming back again

    When we arrived, the hostess greeted and took us to our table right away. Our sever was friendly and made a few helpful suggestions from the menu. We ended up getting the Salmon and Fried Chicken, I substituted their crispy Brussels Sprouts(yummy) for the mashed potatoes. This time around the fried chicken wasn’t as good as I had the last 2 times I had it. It was fresh and hot, but didn’t have any flavor or seasoning on it, very bland. I’m not sure if this is the new thing now (I hope not) or if it was just an oversight. I know I should’ve talked to the manager but I was too hungry to “complain” and didn’t want to wait for another dish to be made. We will rerun again, I have to find out if this one time was just a fluke.

    Started with deviled eggs and bacon which were fine. Then asked for blacked shrimp on my salad. They have blackened shrimp and grits. Waitress thought that shouldn’t be a problem. She comes back and says the kitchen won’t do it. They will only put chicken or salmon on the salad. Ridiculous. Then they actually put chicken on a salad that already had chicken. Unimpressive.

    Very slow service. Waiter rarely checked on us and food took a very long time. Extremely loud- why not purchase some noise reducing products? They were out of the Saturday night Prime Rib special at 6:30pm. Also out of one of the appetizers we wanted and the Coconut Cream Pie for desert. Very disappointed with this establishment and they could do a lot better.
