Description: The Bayfront Grille, located in the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel in Eerie, Pennsylvania, can be your personal oasis in the heart of Erie’s Bayfront Marina District. The stunning lake views on our patio are sure to take your breath away, while you dine on a delicious seasonal menu featuring hints of Asian and Contemporary cuisine. Executive chef Michael Cerrie is taking Bayfront Grille into elite status among the top ranked restaurants of the Sheraton brand. The Black Pearl Pork Chop and Roasted Corn & Crab Chowder are two dishes that make Bayfront Grille dwarf the local competition. Meanwhile the Delmonico Steak and House Ct Strip Steak truly are cut in-house to ensures that every steak served is not only the freshest it can be, but of the highest grade. A global selection of seafood, delivered daily, also is prepared in compliment the premium meats. Bayfront Grille has something to server everyone!

“Comfortable, enjoyable and great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

I must start by saying the staff, Thomas and the gentlemen at the front desk of the hotel were extremely helpful in taking care of our large party. Having walked to a few restaurants in the area for a late dinner prior to the fireworks, we ended up at the bayfront grill. Thomas and the staff eased my concerns about the size of our party and the time of day and we were extremely pleased with the service. Our food and drinks came in a timely manner and our
waitress was very helpful. Each member of our party was pleased with their meals. Personally, I recommend the diver scallops, with the house cut strip steak. Overall a fabulous meal, great view and wonderful service.

“Not a typical hotel restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very creative dishes. A little pricey, but the food was excellent. The server was attentive and friendly, and the executive chef came out to talk with us as we were finishing our meal.

“Lunch By the Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My wife and I went here on our recent trip to Erie and the atmosphere was amazing. It was a little difficult to locate since the restaurant was in a hotel, but once we found it, we were glad we did. We both had the same sandwich for lunch and it was very good. We sat outside on the patio and took in the beautiful bay. It is a very relaxing restaurant. The food was a little pricey, but overall I could only see it being maybe two or three dollars cheaper based on similar restaurants, so that's just a minor quibble. Our waiter wasn't the greatest. He only checked up on us once toward the end of our meal, but that happens when waiter's are working both inside and out. Overall, very relaxing atmosphere and good food.

“Underwhelmed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

While I have been a patron here since it opened I would never say the service is great.I have had a tray of mimosas spilled down my back,been rushed to pay by an over anxious server,made a reservation for a special occasion at a specific table and then seated elsewhere only to be told...too bad! It just seems to always be something. I will still patronize for the food and the view but the service is certainly lackluster.

eriefoodguy61,
Let me first say, thank you for your patronage. It sounds as if you have had a few bad experiences that could have been handled differently. I would urge you to speak to a supervisor or manager so that they are aware the next time something like this takes place. We always strive to make each guests' experience one that is enjoyable. If you are not receiving this kind of service please take the time to let the manager know so that it can be corrected immediately.
We appreciate our local guests and always want them to have a wonderful experience. We look forward to your next visit and hope that it will exceed your expectations.
