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 Michael Cerrie 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!

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...

This was one very enjoyable experience for my wife and myself. We were in Erie with our daughter so she could see from friends in college. While we usually avoid hotel restaurants, we were tired from traveling and decided to take a chance. Boy, were we surprised. The atmosphere was excellent, the view for the time of year (early spring,... More

I enjoyed my early evening meal at the Bayfront Grille. The atmosphere is quite charming and the view across the Lake is beautiful. I had the grilled salmon which was good. The service was friendly and OK, not great. One disruption was a male server whose voice is so loud that I heard him announce the specials multiple times during... More

A year ago this was my favorite restaurant, and I would have given it 6 stars! The service is still well-done, the view is still fabulous, and it's still a COMFORTABLE restaurant with no wide-screen tvs and a reasonable noise level. But the food seems to have deteriorated. The last few times I've eaten there I've been disappointed, and because... More

We stayed at the hotel with a playhouse package. The dining at the restaurant was great! My family had two different soups with our meals, chicken cordon blue and corn crab chowder, if Im not mistaken, they were great.

We had company from out of town, and we decided to take them someplace nice. This was our 1st time dining there, but it won't be our last. It is very pricey, but my steak melted in my mouth. The food was excellent. We had a 20% discount coupon so that helped with the $170 bill. Well worth every penny.... More

We live in Erie and share this restaurant with everyone from Pittsburgh (our former lifelong home) that visits us. The grill is in the back, along the bay, so it's waterfront.
