The crab chowder was excellent! We took suggestions from our waitress. We both got the Lake Erie Perch Sandwich. Spicy red sauce, and quite tasty. Nice presentations. Lunch for 2, $43. Sandwiches, coffee and an extra bowl of chowder.

Good place to eat if you want a nice sit down meal with a wine list. There is also a great bar adjacent the restaurant. The views of the Bay and Lake are great.

The restaurant is in the Sheraton Bayfront, so it offers spectacular views over the water. We were here during winter, and the atmosphere was warm and comfortable with an upscale flair. Our server was very attentive, and provided us with delicious recommendations. A bit pricey, but won't keep us from returning.
