Description: A three-month renovation has expanded the original restaurant layout to create a new open floor plan that seamlessly transitions the restaurant from day to night. Erie Grill makes a statement with modern decor. Following lunch, the restaurant transitions itself into a lounge-like dining and drinking atmosphere by revealing liquor selections behind the bar, showcasing a vast wine selection, and softening lighting for the evening hours. The menu offers a variety of crave-able Contemporary American cuisine that encompasses both coursed meals and smaller plates to share at a range of price points. Executive Chef John Freezee and Sous Chef Doug Dake imaginatively utilize seasonal ingredients to present the finest in regional cuisine; popular dishes include Steak Tartare Pizza, Duck Meatballs, and Rabbit Sausage with Orecchiette.

I had lunch at the Erie Grill on a Friday afternoon. The service was not what I would have hoped. The waitress had no clue about wine but the bar tender was very good. We waited over 30 minutes for our food. Three of us ordered the chicken cutlet which was enormous and looked beautiful but was strangely bland. The... More

Beautiful contemporary atmosphere. All new since my last visit. Service was very friendly as well as professional and efficient. The menu offered a variety of choices and ample gluten free items. We both chose salads and found them to be fresh, well presented and tasty. Certainly will return.

We went to the Erie Grill for an early lunch. Most tables were empty. The food was pretty good, not excellent. We both had a cup of the soup of the day, a nice cauliflower cheddar, I had a grilled octopus and artichoke salad and my daughter-in-law a fish sandwich. We each had a weak Bloody Mary, as well.

Table for 8. Prompt service. Delicious food. What more could one ask------ the view of the canal, topped it off!

The Erie Grill in Pittsford's Del Monte Lodge is an elegant spot for a relaxed meal beside the scenic Erie Canal. Had breakfast here yesterday: corned beef hash, poached eggs (done to perfection) and a side order of their remarkable hollandaise. Delicious! Our server was friendly and extremely attentive. We enjoyed every bite and every minute. Highly recommend!

Even though I am a "local", this was my first visit to Erie Grill since their "re-do". I was pleasantly surprised. Although our visit was on a quiet Saturday, my request for a table with privacy was respected, and service was attentively non-intrusive. The food was not exciting, but certainly solidly good. I would return again whenever a professional meeting... More

We ate at the Erie Grill with two other couples for a birthday celebration. Even with a reservation we waited for our table for about 1/2 hour, which was surprising. The atmosphere was nice and the food was excellent though, and we had a very enjoyable evening. Would I return? Sure. But all things equal, I'd prefer Richardson's Canal House... More

Very good food for a hotel. My wife and I stopped here for a fast brunch. Excellent burger, sweet potato fries, salads and cappuccino. Great service and food. Wish to return for their Cioppino in a white sauce, sounds great! I'm glad my back was to the window. I don't enjoy looking at the Barge Canal even if you change... More

Erie Grill had an exceptionally lovely decor, friendly staff and the best wings and sweet potato fries we have had anywhere. The best part, though, was the outstanding view of the canal. It is a very active area for locals with a walking/biking path. Several different types of boats floated down the canal and a train even crossed the bridge.... More
