I went here with two other people for my birthday this past Monday. Honestly, I'm surprised there aren't more reviews?! It's a little small inside on the first floor, but cute. There is also an upstairs which is pretty large with nice views out the windows. Maine lobster nachos and fried sweet potato w/ honey mustard = both awesome. Main entrees were awesome. The quality of everything was very high and we will definitely be going back.

Awesome place. Great ambiance, great service, and a unique menu that is as tasty as it sounds. I know one person who won't be eating at their neighbor anymore! Try East Ender and you won't regret it!

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant in its current incarnation. On one hand, the food is very good, and I enjoy it. As someone who's into veg/hybrid recipes, imagine my surprise that the tartare and burger are my favorite selections on the menu! On the other, the service has been absolutely terrible, almost every time, in the 4 times we have been there. Plus, you get the inevitable friends of the kitchen staff, at the bar, who distract the kitchen staff, and general lack of care in managing service and/or customer satisfaction, that make me want to go someplace else. As someone who has worked in restaurants professionally, experiencing a restaurant that's MARGINAL, at best, service-wise, then seeing its staff congregated about the bar is a MAJOR turn off. Does anyone manage this place? I just spent 113 + tip at this restaurant. I can spend the same at a number of other popular local restaurants, and receive far better service. If this restaurant was smart or good on any level, they would have up settled us promptly on our chit, since on this an off night, and with the proper service for drinks and food, our base would have been 160+. Ever wonder why other restaurants are killing it on a Wednesday, at peak time, when East Ender is practically empty? Case closed. You have to manage your service better, or you're done.

Terrible experience! The service was extremely slow. I ordered ribs and ended up with food poisoning. My girlfriend's received a few small chunks of over cooked brisket. On top of it all, my server added her own tip to the bill. Last I knew that's considered theft. I would avoid this place like the plague.

Great place. If you go make sure you get the lobster poutin.
