Greenside Cafe opened in 2007 mere months before the country was rocked with the largest financial crisis of our lives. The fact that we have maintained while over 50 restaurants on our small stretch of highway opened and closed should give us the right to be a little bit proud!

    Greenside was great for my vegetarian friend as a dinner option. We both loved their food. I enjoyed their burger for dinner, nicely seasoned and yummy. The service was great and we enjoyed having a leisurely dinner. We’ll be back.

    Great little local place. Service was slow, food prep was slow, but it was good. Chef had difficulty getting eggs consistent. (poached medium got one egg correct one runny) Over easy... one correct the other over cooked??) We will give it another try

    We were there for Mother's Day and my mom had the chicken enchiladas which were tasty and quite ample. My friend loved her Hen Grenade and I was pleased with the mac and cheese. I got the lite portion without the peas and it was more than enough with my side salad. Great experience and ambiance. Highly recommend!

    Food is usually good. This visit the KFC had a different taste. Almost like a flour taste. The sandwich has really changed since I had it a year ago. I won’t order it again. At one time it was the only food I would order. My other half at the trout. She said she thought it had been microwaved. Service was excellent as always

    Our go-to spot in the East Mountains for consistently good food and friendly service! We crave the KFC sandwich - it’s the bomb. Also love the peanut noodles and fish and chips on Fridays. It’s always very relaxing on their spacious patio.

    The Korean chicken sandwich was super tasty and the vegetarian enchiladas were amazing as always. We had a quiet table to ourselves on the patio and appreciated all the precautions that the staff is taking to make it feel safe to dine there during the pandemic. If anything, the food was even better than we remember it being when we dined there in pre-pandemic days.

    The food was great as always. We’ve been there a few times and it’s always been good. Just wish Covid was over. I didn’t like all the disposable utensils and serving containers they used. Possibly this is required during this crazy pandemic???

    One of the things we were looking forward to was eating out and although we had the eating out experience, being served with little plastic tableware and throw away dishes made us feel like we were eating in a cheap take out place. It just kind of made us wish we had gotten take out.

    Fish tacos on Taco Tuesday were the best. The service has always been friendly and professional. During the Covid pandemic, Greenside has maintained the highest standards of compliance. Looking forward to real dishes and silverware soon though. Best eating in Cedar Crest!!

    While things seemed good at the restaurant, both of us experienced GI events during the overnight and even beyond. WE each had fish and chips. The French fries and fish appeared to be just barely cooked, but were tasty. Something did a job on our tummies later that evening. This is the first time we had been there.

    My wife and I had lunch at Greenside Cafe in Cedar Crest on Friday, specifically for their fish fry special. With the current virus situation, only outside dining is available. We made a reservation ahead of time and arrived at the appointed time. They had reserved a table in the shade. The food was served piping hot and delicious as always at this restaurant.

    Nice out of town dining location. Lots of great menu choices. Although a shady spot was provided, they really need more shade on their patio. Very pleasant and efficient service. Attention to recycled service ware really appreciated.

    Food was delicious. I had the red trout with green chili butter, my wife had the vegetarian enchilada. I can heartily recommend either one. The view from the patio was great. Service was a little slow as it looked like one server taking care of the dining area we were in but will definitely be going back.

    Food was excellent, as it always has been. We both had the "Fish fry" special. Tasty and plenty of it. Also shared the other Friday special, Clam Chowder which was delicious. Things are a bit different eating out of take out boxes at the restaurant, but these are different times. Service was excellent, food was delicious, and it wasn't raining. So a wonderful meal out.

    They really do have great chicken fried steak. Almost as good as their Friday night fried fish, which of course has the best side - sweet potato fries! They are the best I've ever had.
