I had no idea that Chapel Hill had such a jewel in its storied crown. I was drawn to East End by the live music. We ventured in and were blown away. At the bartender's recomendation, we tried the pineapple martini, and were amazed. We've tried other local infusions, but this drink stands alone. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, the bartender gave us a late night menu. We tried the calamari and the crabcakes. Both were done to perfection, with excellent seasoning and accompaning sauces. The staff was quite friendly, knowledgeable, and seemed genuinely interested in our comfort. Even if everything else had been below par, the service alone would bring us back. As a newcomer, it is hard when you move to find the right blend of service, quality, and atmosphere. East End has it all.
Pros: service, Diamond Dole, atmosphere/appearance
