    I went once a couple of years ago. It wasn't good at all. I got a bone in rib eye and it looked and tasted like something you'd get at an "all you can eat " steak dive. My favorite is Camanito Argentinean Steakhouse. Thats a real rib eye.

      It is a little more corporate feeling since the new owners, IMO. It is rushed and very noisy. I'd go to Side Street Cafe for better food, more handmade.

        I think East Side is solid, dependable, and a good value. I am usually pleased there. Not fabulous, not pretentious. Always a strong fall back choice to the uneven, over wrought spots in the area that invariably leave me feeling under fed, over charged, and a bit taken advantage of. (i.e.Blue Heron, Tabella)
