I had lunch with my husband and the place was really nice. We had a table overlooking the bay and there was a fireplace nearby. We had the veggie burger with fries and it was great. The service was very good.

My boyfriend and I visited this bar and restaurant in Erie PA. The food was delicious and the lake view was breath taking. We enjoyed this wonderful place and would definitely go again on our next trip there.

Spending the day and saw their menu advertising lake perch. Originally from Chicago and now living in South Carolina. Love lake perch and gave this restaurant a try. It was excellent. Sides of wild rice and portobello mushrooms were a treat. Recomend this restaurant
