Have a wide selection of choices, for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Anyone can find something to savor. Enjoyed breakfast and lunch here and plan on returning with family. Excellent, fresh omelets - both of my visits were vegetable filled. Fresh fruit as side. Had daily...baked chicken for lunch – very moist and coated with herbs. Had the bean soup as side – rich, smoky flavor. They do some smoking in house and I have wanted to try the pulled pork. I look forward to sampling additional items on future visits. Their desserts are made in house and look oh so tasty. Just have not had room for them yet. Plan on appetizer and dessert for a future visit : ) Staff is great. Found this place when visiting Ashbury Woods for walks and TownePlace desk recommendation. Great place to fill up before walking or rejuvenate after a walk. Currently open till 7:00 pm and do not close in the middle of the day. Very welcoming, homey, cabin-like interior. Cute, but limited outside seating area. Wearing masks, spacing seating and very clean.More

While in Erie for a getaway weekend, we were looking for a family restaurant. We found Lorie’s Wildridge in a google search. What a wonderful experience! The décor has a comfy-lodge feeling. Wide variety of menu options, generous servings and delicious food. We thoroughly enjoyed...the country fried steak, sirloin tips with noodles, sausage sandwich, breakfast sandwich and an omelet – they tasted just like homemade favorites. Our server, Karen, was very friendly, welcoming and attentive! It was obvious that Karen loves taking care of her customers. The prices and portions made dinner for a family of 5 affordable and a good value. We enjoyed our experience so much, we wanted to go back on Sunday. (The restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday, which our family didn’t mind, as it speaks to the character and family-owned feeling of the restaurant.) If you’re looking to support a local restaurant during these tough times, we highly recommend Lorie’s Wildridge Restaurant!More

Lorie's Wildridge Restaurant has outstanding food. You get a lot of food no matter what you order, It is a nice family restaurant and hosts a lot of family celebration dinners. My husband loves their stuffed peppers. This restaurant's atmosphere has wild stuffed animals (...turkeys, deer head, etc) of all kind . Great food and great staff.More

When it,s a Thursday at 12:30 and you have to wait for a table, you know the place is popular. It's popular for a reason, the food is exceptional! Everybody in our party enjoyed their meal. I've ate there several times and found that everything...I've tried has been exceptional. The food is reasonably priced with big portions. The atmosphere is rustic and charming. A great experiance.More

Visited for lunch with my wife. Decor is great, service was good too food is ok. Started with cup of chili and wife had the bean soup. Both were very hot, which is good and that's best part. Both were very bland and uninspired. While...not bad little to no seasoning and pretty much had no flavor either way. I had hot meatloaf sandwich, which again wasn't bad just little flavor. Homemade mashed potatoes a plus but flavorless and gravy probably premade and also flavorless. Wife had fish sandwich which she was satisfied with along with housemade chips which were good. Overall for 30 bucks for lunch I'd expect more flavor and passion in food which you'd expect from this type of establishment.More

This was one of the worst meals I've had in a long time. It came out so fast, you just know it's all microwaved, frozen, and canned. I had supposedly house smoked rib tips with BBQ sauce. They were tough and overcooked and had too...much really sweet sauce. The waitress admitted the horrible German potato salad was canned. Even the "homemade" dressing looked like it fell out of a can.My boyfriend had potroast which was slightly better but also microwaved and with canned gravy. The baked sweet potato was overdone and bitter.The best things were the bread and cinnamon butter.More

A friend and I had breakfast at Lorie's Wildridge Restaurant and it was a great experience. The atmosphere is fun and interesting, with lovely pictures, many for sale and hunting trophies on the walls. We both had one of the specials, "Gramma's Cinnamon French Toast."...It was delicious, accompanied by sausage for me, and bacon for her. Our server was very nice and attentive, keeping my coffee cup and my friend's tea carafe filled. I would definitely return to Lorie's when in Erie.More

NO. not the place for celiacs. Not even aware of providing options and I'd be concerned if you need foods isolated or separate prep.
