Love it – My friend and I generally go during the day. Great service, great food and drinks. Not sure if the night service is different but everytime I've been here I have a great time and never have to try to beg for service. The server is always around and checking to see if I need anything!
French Dip is a French Rip – Their $10 french dip sandwich is a rip off. It was on what looked like a baby baguette...but smaller. It took me a minute and a half to eat. I looked around at other food on my way out and the cheaper sandwiches were so much bigger. I even asked how big it was before ordering and was assured that it was a very good size sandwich.
Take Your Hard Earned Cash Somewhere Else – If I could give a negative star, I would.
It started with a friend and myself, waiting at the bar while the bartender ignored us. We asked to sit on the patio and she looked at us like "duh". The first server was nice, but the last two were too busy and the "saloon" wasn't. Apparently if you sit outside, it's ok for them to repeatedly ignore you, forget your drinks (three times), upgrade you without asking and be very impatient when they're ending their shift. I understand, it's hard being a server. But when you treat the customer like they are such an inconvenience, especially when there is one other couple on the patio, that's just bad customer service. The food was lousy, the drinks watered down and the bathroom floor felt like it was going to collapse.
UNCLEAN FOOD AND KITCHEN! – Seriously this place is GROSS. They are unsanitary and unclean. No one washes their hands even though they smoke all of the time. The cooks smoke while working. The service is great but the owners are terrible. The food is pretty terrible as well.
DON'T GO HERE
Good Happy Hour Food – They started a great new happy hour menu for $5. It's a really cool old building with tons of tv and great service. Drinks are very cheap too.
Housed in a building dating back to 1896, this sports bar exudes real saloon atmosphere. – In Short
When there's an important game on TV, space is at a premium in this popular bar. A full menu adds to sports-viewing enjoyment, as does the old-fashioned, brick-and-wood decor, which is a refreshing step up from the usual sports-bar look. East Bank offers all a standard bar menu, but also more upscale options. Good choices include the Louie salad or the daily seafood specials.
Good Soup – we really liked their clam chowder, and deep-fried mushrooms. My husband and I would definately come here again. The only downside is that the service was pretty slow.
does the trick – This place has been there forever. It sticks with the basics, good typical bar food, healthy drinks and TVs everywhere. Nice with out being stuck up.
Go for the patio – The food and service is OK, but this place is best visited in the summer, when the patio's open. Meet for drinks and maybe some snacks, then move on. I do like the saloon atmosphere, but food and service needs to improve.
