Stayed at the Sheraton for a single night and when we checked in the front desk staff recommended we immediately make a reservation at the restaurant as it was the best Sheraton restaurant in the USA. Well, we'd been driving all day and figured eating at a good restaurant onsite would be an excellent idea. We were very disappointed as... More

The restaurant is ideally located on the bay side of the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel and has both indoors and outdoors seating with excellent views of the bay. The ambiance is relaxing and there is a large bar area when you enter at which you can grab a quick snack and drink or enjoy a full meal. The menu has... More

We chose to sit outside (good call, it is a bit protected from the wind and the panorama was great!) Tasty iced tea, nice silver and linen, tempting menu, nice background music and upscal-ish, yet casual setting for lunch. It was quite busy, but service was good. Went for the fried avocado and lump crab.salad. I enjoyed it, fresh and... More

Went on a bus tour with our church group and Bayfront Grille was the restaurant marked for Lunch. It was delicious. The Pan Seared Salmon with risotto & seasonal veggies was grilled perfectly. Portions were filling enough and the coffee was just right. Dessert was a generous slice of spice/carrot cake with cream cheese icing and raspberry drizzle. The wait... More

Excellent menu, served graciously and cooked as expected. Large and varied bar menu. Staff served breakfasts to a large group in private dining room after having to reset room due to last minute reservations. Ordered from menu, individual checks. Impressed!!!

Went for dinner on our anniversary. Great location and great view of the bay. Food that we ordered was very tasty and we enjoyed our meal. Would have rated higher but for a couple of issues. Portions were small and very pricey. The item that I ordered stated that one of the ingredients was perch but was substituted with chicken... More

Rick_and_suki, First of all, Happy Anniversary. Second, I am happy to hear that your food was good while you dined with us. Although i am happy about that, I will bring to my Executive Chefs attention about the Perch/Chicken mix up. I assure you that our Perch is Perch and should not have been substituted with anything else. If you... More

My wife had the chicken caprese sandwich and I had the zucchini panini - both were delicious! We were pleasantly surprised at how affordable the menu prices were, and Jessica provided pleasant and prompt service. I will definitely try to find my way back to the water when work brings me back to town!
