I ordered the pickerel dinner which is normally good in the local restaurants in the area but found my pickerel to be very average with some parts of the piece to be... read more

A bad waiter takes any good taste away from the food. The food was ok but the horrible waiter called Bryan who is far from young maybe in his 50s or even 60s was rude and sarcastic. we were a fun bunch of 5 and he really knows how to destroy someones meal. Stay away and find another waiter to... More

We arrived and were greeted by a middle aged tall guy his name is Bill I think. He never said hi or smiled and pointed us to the table. Never smiled once or said anything pleasant. Was rude and sarcastic when we asked a question about an item on the menu he responded rudely. He brought the food at several... More

We stopped at the Erie Beach Hotel for Sunday lunch on our way back from a nice weekend in Port Stanley. We arrived about 1:30 and the restaurant was not busy--by the time we were finished, we were the only ones there. As several reviewers have noted, the decor looks somewhat tired. My wife and I had the special Arctic... More

I have been going to Erie Beach Hotel for many years and have never been so disappointed. We had dinner at the cove room. The fish was good but the service was the worst that I have experienced. The waitress was distant and unwelcoming. When SHE asked if we would like something and we said Yes it never arrived i.e.... More

Erie beach has the best perch in the area. It also has other great choices. We ate in the Terrance room which is more casual. Have also ate in the cove room which is more formal. Have never had a bad meal and the service is top notch. A definite place to eat when visiting . I know many people... More

The Erie Beach Hotel has been in the same family for over 50 years and offers a comfortable atmosphere for enjoying the best perch that Lake Erie can offer. There is a variety of food for all ages, even if you don't like fish. I would recommend the soup of the day and the rice pudding. Delicious. The staff are... More
