    We love having date night here and celebrating special occasions. The food and service is always great. We love that Christina is back! She is amazing and so great with people. However, what happened to Carly? We miss her! She was so wonderful and good with people. We hope she comes back to Eastside.

    We highly recommend Rick Erwin’s Eastside. Our meal was exceptional - the crab cakes were the best we’ve ever eaten, and the lamb chops were amazing. We could not have asked for better service. We look forward to our next visit.

    We went here for dinner for my stepmother‘s birthday, and it was a great experience. Our server, Rachel, was super friendly and personable, and she made our dining experience even better. We loved the birthday dessert and the sparkler, and it is always nice to see Rick Erwin walking around and introducing himself to his guests. The food was excellent, and so were the drinks, and we will definitely be coming back here again soon.

    Rick Erwin’s east side isn’t what it used to be. Server needed training, didn’t know a lot of things, made several mistakes and was not very attentive. My drink glass was not clean. Service was very slow. It took forever for food and drinks to be prepared. It’s leisure dining, but this was just plain slow! Perhaps Rick has spread himself too thin with too many restaurants. It lacks his careful touch.

    Overall a good dining experience Couple of things that would have made it better (1) it took about 25 minutes to get our bottle of wine to the table? (2) There was no bread available until we had finished our soup and salad. Waitress said they had to bake more bread. It was not mentioned earlier, I had to ask if bread came with the meal.

    We went to Rick Erwin's Eastside to celebrate a special occasion. From the time we arrived, we were treated wonderfully by all of the staff. We were given complimentary champagne to celebrate. They went above and beyond to help serve a cake that we had brought as well. From start to finish, it was the perfect experience for the occasion.

    The waiter was the best part! If wasn’t such a great vibe my family and I would have left. We had to wait 20 minutes and we had a reservation. Once we got to the table it was a hour wait on the food. Once the food came some of steaks weren’t cooked properly. The Westside location is my favorite!!

    I have been to three Rick Erwin restaurants. I found the Eastside lacking especially for the prices. The service was slow it took us a long time to get water and they didn't come back and fill the water regularly. The brussel sprouts were so good but the salmon was average. The ambience is quiet and dark which I liked but not what you would expect for fine dining. I found it a bit run down. I thought the prices too high for an average experience. The Greer and Level 10 locations is fine dining at it's best.

    We celebrated Valentine’s Day early last night and had a wonderful meal once again. My husband and I both have dietary restrictions and really appreciate the staff for working with us on appropriate substitutions. My husband had the Surf and Turf and I had the fish special. We will definitely return!

    The food is always top notch. We both had the Surf and Turf. I opted for the broccolini instead of the asparagus. I made a great choice. Dessert was the Chocolate Mousse cso rich and delicious. With our server, Saxon, he’s not only about serving the food but it’s those “little things” that make him worth requesting. He noticed that I was fanning myself with my checkbook because I was a little bit warm, and came over to the table with a “reserved” card and suggested it might work better. He’s there when you need something and not there when you don’t. A wonderful experience for my wife’s birthday

    This was our first time at RE. It had been recommended so we took my mom for her birthday. Overall, everything was delicious. We only had one problem. I was eating my she-crab soup and something was scratching my throat. I tried to clear it and wash it down, but was unable to do so. I excused myself to the restroom to try and cough it away. I had to reach my fingers down my throat to feel if there was something there. When I was able to retrieve it with my finger, I saw that it was a piece of crab shell that had been in the soup. I returned to the table and showed my husband and mom. I rested it on the plate under the half-eaten soup. When our waitress returned and asked us how we were doing I told her about it. She did apologize and asked if I wanted more soup which I declined. My mom enjoy d her birthday dinner and everything else was delicious.

    Every time we dine at Rick Erwin's Eastside, it's like having dinner with family...and manager Christina Aldridge always finds ways to surprise us to ensure our experience is unforgettable! Thank you for continuing to be a restaurant that values a real dining experience where the expectation of inviting ambience, great food, excellent staff, and reasonable dress code standards are the reality!
