The Bayfront Grille, located in the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel in Eerie, Pennsylvania, can be your personal oasis in the heart of Erie's Bayfront Marina District. The stunning lake views on our patio are sure to take your breath away, while you dine on a delicious seasonal menu featuring hints of Asian and Contemporary cuisine. Executive chef Kristian Young is taking Bayfront Grille into elite status among the top ranked restaurants of the Sheraton brand. The Black Pearl Pork Chop and Roasted Corn & Crab Chowder are two dishes that make Bayfront Grille dwarf the local competition. Meanwhile the Delmonico Steak and House Ct Strip Steak truly are cut in-house to ensures that every steak served is not only the freshest it can be, but of the highest grade. A global selection of seafood, delivered daily, also is prepared in compliment the premium meats. Bayfront Grille has something to server everyone!

Sleek Setting, Great View

I ate lunch with my family here today. Since the main dining room was full, we were seated in the bar/lounge area. We still had a good view of Presque Isle Bay behind the bar. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated because half of the restaurant is being rennovated, and is therefore... read more

The Bayfront Grille is a gem in Erie. Everything about it is wonderful: the food, the location, the atmosphere, the staff. Our table had the calamari for our appetizer...delicious. Most places have calamari that is over-breaded and deep fried, but the calamari hear is light and delicious. We all enjoyed our entrees as well, and you can't beat the view.... More

Both Staff and the food is Excellent. Also, their drink and wine menu rocks. It is also great for kids that are not into finer food, they make a great Macaroni & Cheese.

We ate dinner before catching Dancing with the Stars. The menu has been changed so that most meals have a Mexican flair. I ordered the chicken breast for 22.00. My meal consisted of a quarter piece of chicken with a wing bone on top of a mushy black bean patty. The patty was so tasteless and mushy that I couldn't... More

When the weather is nice, there is no better place in ERIE to have a nice meal, a favorite beverage, and sit outside by the bay and watch the sailboats. The menu is diverse enough to satisfy most appetites and the service is attentive without being annoying. Sometimes bands are playing and the late night music adds to the enjoyment.... More

Food was terrible. Too expensive for the little piece of chicken that was served. Would have expected more for the price. Could have done better!

We were a group of six for dinner. We had great service and a wonderful meal! Each of us ordered something different and all of our dinners were delicious. The view of the bay was very nice. Bar service was also good, but it is a little high priced for some of the alcoholic beverages.

food was great, service was excellent. Had two drinks and got very drunk and passed out. Lucky I had a friend with me. Something was wrong. Sick the whole next day. And, I am a drinker, ugh.

The turkey panini on the lunch menu was great. Restaurant has a great view of the bayfront and beautiful decor. The only distraction was the fishy smell from the order at table near us.

Stopped in for a weeknight dinner and even though it was early and wasn't busy, it took us 2 1/2 hours to complete dinner with appetizers, dinner & dessert. Most of the items were appealing and tasteful. Some missed the mark. The items members of our party enjoyed: Vegetable Lasagna, Winter Salad, Margarita flatbread pizza. Some of us added protein...
