Hidden treasure

On a last minute idea tried the Bayfront Grille. Menus was great for lunch and they had a good selection of craft beer from Erie, Jamestown and Cleveland. It was a perfect day overlooking Presque Isle Bay, lunch and craft beer. Will be going back again

We had an excellent meal in the beautiful dining room of the Bayfront Grille. The customer service was amazing and the wait staff was very attentive and gracious. We enjoyed an inside table with a great view of the bay while others enjoyed the same view from outside tables. Reservations are suggested. Great place to celebrate a special occasion!

Four friends who graduated together from high school in 1960 had dinner on the water at the Bayfront Grille with our spouses on August 8, 2015. The food and service were excellent. Being on the water and watching the setting sun added to our enjoyment. I recommend the roasted corn and crab chowder for starters. The Barramundi fish dinner was... More

This restaurant has some of the best views in the city, unfortunately my husband and I cannot justify paying such high prices for low quality food. We ate breakfast here and were very disappointed to learn that the eggs they use for most of the entrees are not fresh and come out of a box! The potatoes were very greasy... More

The prices are in the fine dining range but the food is not fine dining quality. I had a $29 bay scallop pasta dish. It was average at best and certainly not worth $29. My wife had crab cakes that were tasteless and lukewarm. They did not charge us for the crab cakes. A nearby table also complained about the... More

My Mother and I headed to the Bayfront a Grille for lunch yesterday. We ate outside on the new patio. What a beautiful day overlooking Presque Isle! Blue sky, seagulls and boaters on the Bay.

We ate dinner here the other night, and wow are the views amazing! We had a late dinner, and even though it was a little windy, we still got to see a beautiful sunset over the bay. The service was great, drinks were good, and this place has some of the best food around town!
