“The East Side Restaurant & Pub is well known by locals and visitors alike. Famous for it's hearty comfort food, the East Side offers fine dining on the shores of beautiful Lake Memphremagog. When you're traveling, nothing hits the spot better than a homemade buttermilk biscuit with chicken, gravy, real mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. If you have room for the bake shops, dessert of the month, you'll know why the East Side has been a Newport, VT favorite for years. The Dancing Sail Banquet Room's elegant waterfront dining room and terrace open onto a garden courtyard to create the ideal setting for a story book Vermont wedding.
