The Eastside Grill, in business for almost 23 years, has long been a major dining destination in downtown Northampton's busy and diverse restaurant community. Its skilled, dedicated staffers are renowned for their attention to detail, and their menu is always changing in pursuit of excellence and a passion for the new. The restaurant remains famous for its steak tenderloin and fresh seafood such as caramelized tuna, seafood risotto with lobster stock and pepper-seared scallops with a bleu cheese fondue and fresh lump crabmeat. Homemade soup stocks and house-made desserts betray an obvious love of culinary craft in the kitchen, and the waitstaff and bartenders in the front of the house serve as ambassadors who uphold Eastside's high standards of hospitality.
