In two weeks' time, our group will be dining at the Cove Room and we are looking forward to having a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Our last two visits, the turkey was excellent but service was rushed too much.

This is our third visit to the Erie Beach Hotel restaurant. It was just as delicious as I remember it many years ago. Everything was fresh and appetizing.

We stopped by for lunch on a weekday, the restaurant was not busy. Friendly and cheerful wait staff. Ordered wings, they were nothing special. I have had much better wings. Order a beer and a glass of wine, pleasant but not a memorable experience. We will try some place else next time.

We drove out of our way to have a late lunch at the Erie Beach Hotel and sat waiting for someone to take out order...they never came. 20 minutes waiting for service is long enough. It's not difficult...customers sit - you take their order...or at least acknowledge they're there. There was plenty of wait staff around...some served drinks - some... More

Like the perch, celery bread. Dislike the line up and wait times. Cannot book ahead of time on weekends.

A group of us were there on a Saturday night. Our reservation was at 630 and the restaurant was not full at the time. The minute we sat down, the waitress came and asked us to order drinks. As we have a fairly large group and the families with young children were either in the washroom or on their way... More

Staying at the hotel, which I have reviewed separately, we enjoyed both dinner and breakfast in the hotel dining room. A slight surprise when my pre-dinner cocktail Strawberry Dacquiri arrived with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Cabbage roll soup - very mid-20th century - was delicious, as was the plate of perch. The salad trolley was amazing -... More

We visited this place expecting great food but their signature perch dishes seem bland. Most of it was fried and only the coleslaw was good. The place wasn't exactly full but we felt like we were being rushed to leave. Overall I didn't the food that great and the environment wasn't warm.
