This restaurant is so nice. Just being in there takes you to a different place. Service is exceptional and food is excellent.

Very unique 87 y/o, spot for German food where you will also see steins of beer and waitstaff in Lederhosen as well as hear drinking mantras and accordion music. The place is decked out to the nine's and it is a one of a kind experience I came with my GF and we started our dinner off right with one of their many different shots each.

Authentic German food, good portion size, very welcoming staff. Our waiter, Matthew, was top 3 best waiters we’ve ever had in our lives- extremely attentive, respectful, genuine personality. It’s no wonder how this restaurant has been in business 100 years… used to come here with my family as a child and it’s just as good 20 years la ... read more

One of my favorite places to grab a meal in New Britain. The servers and owners are always very friendly and the food is hearty and tasty. I usually order the sauerbraten with the awesome potato pancakes. They also have an extensive desert menu. The East Side isn't just a restaurant though, it's an experience. I love the large old bu ... read more

I've wanted to come here for the longest time but yesterday I finally took my wife and stepson and we had a great time!

It was quite the experience. The food was overall pretty good, the sausages were tasty and the rouladen was good. Big portions. But……. you have to go there just to drink a giant boot shaped beer and revel in the bizarre decor. Complete with what I would equate to German mariachi music in the background, the outfits they make the wait ... read more

I went there for my sisters 16th birthday and the place was amazing. The Hungarian Goulash that I have ordered is delicious. I also ordered the Chicken wings as an appetizer which weren’t that bad to be honest. Might want to visit this place again someday.

Wonderful atmosphere with excellent food and service. Dining is fun and engaging as German music plays indoors and out. Food is delicious and hearty, as would be expected. I recommend checking East Side Restaurant out, as a date destination or gathering of family & friends.

Lots of food, for sure, but great traditional Bavarian Cuisine, it comes at a cost though, but the experience is unforgettable especially with a good group of good sports.

Hidden gem off the beaten path
The ambiance of this place is fantastic! Each room of the restaurant has a completely different vibe. This is the cozy, well established restaurant vibe you get from European restaurants, which is what makes this place a great place. The owners are kind, funny and so welcoming. They are taking precautions on CoVID: I saw the waiter c ... read more

Great experience while there, but the food was really mediocre at best. The restaurant and ambience are great! The murals and decor make you feel like you're in a München bar.

As other reviewers have commented this restaurant is very dated but in a pretty cute way. The decor brought me right back to my German grandparent's house from the carpet to the lamps. A majority of the tables were set for 5+ and I would love to come back with a big group. They have everyone chant when you order a large beer, which i ... read more

We love East Side Restaurant!! The food is always delicious and the atmosphere is laid back, enjoyable, and fun!

Read some of the other reviews Not sure what people were complaining about The food is authentic German food The food is very flavorful. Pay no attention to the reputation that German food is boiled and bland. East Side was not. We had appetizers dinner and dessert All were very good.
