Due to the number of people attending we had the front porch area wrap around along with the main bar. The separation between the rooms was an issue for being able to speak with many people due to the separation. That being said the food was wonderful and plentiful. The manager was very... read more

The restaurant thrives on it's lunch buffet, apparently. The food is heavy comfort food a "Mediterranean mix." We were at a private function with fish as the main course. The platters were nice size, but the preparation was just average with little flavor. The appetizer greek salad, had lackluster feta

I am fast becoming a regular at Ernie's. We used to love it years ago and them they had a lot of menu changes and it fell off our list. Well baby Ernie's is BACK. They have my old favorites and any many new dishes. In the front of the main dining area is a working kitchen where the "salad... More

Ernie's has great appetizers and fabulous meals. We have been going to Ernie's on 19 Mile west of Garfield for years and it hasn't changed. Went for their Sunday chicken special and thought it was just okay. But the meals from the menu are very and we recommend Ernie's.

We would come out to Ernie's primarily for drinks with friends and, in the summer, the patio area is a great hangout. This has always been the best part of Ernie's. Service can be either great or sometimes short-staffed. When we recently visited with the family, the selection truly favors a Mediterranean style cuisine (thank goodness for pizza for kids)....

Nice waitstaff and impressive building are worth nothing if the dishes your being served with have food residue on them. The portions are unrealistic in relation to the prices. My lake perch dinner had two small pieces of potato which left this 130lb woman still hungry! Really disappointed with our mojitos, they were awful and we didnt drink them but... More

The reason I say that is when we approached the restaurant, it was dusk and the windows on the outside were dirty, always a turn-off to me. And I wasn't sure what door to go in. Once we got in, though, the fun started. We were greeted by a smiling gentleman, who seated us. Our waiter was also very kind,... More

The staff was very inexperienced for the atmosphere Ernie's is trying to portray. We were approached way to often by our waitress, other waitresses, porter/bus boys, and management. My wife and I got to the point we just wanted to be left alone. Food was decent. I had a steak and the wife had tenderloin. The couscous was very bland.... More
