Great corn dogs and great value! On the run then prepare to wait a bit as everything is made fresh to order! All very good!

Not open every day, but was a great stop for lunch. A bit pricey for lunch fare, but overall a good open air place to eat.

We ALWAYS eat a buffalo burger at Eric's. This time our burgers were not the juicy burgers from the past. But it is fun to sit on the pier and people watch. I'll go back next trip and try something else, maybe Huevos Rancheros or...More

Eric's was what I assumed and I enjoyed. They have a great select of the "Burger Joint" type but also Mexican and Sea Food I had a Tuna sandwich and fries, nothing fancy and it did not disappoint. I got what I wanted... The atmosphere...More
