I'll start with the good points - a beautiful view of the bay, great live music and good service. Unfortunately, our meal was not as good as the ambience and service. I struggled a bit with the offerings on the menu - it struck me as lacking imagination or pop. It was your standard run of the mill list of... More

Solo for the night. Cucumber salad, mushroom ravioli, vanilla ice cream and one/a few glasses of white wine. The waitress was just adorable, the food was good. The live music, on a summers evening, was ideal. So glad I was here to experience this. Simple, pleasant evening.

Perfection. Food good enough for foodies. Love the crab cakes and their steaks are wonderful. Nothing beats sitting beside that deep blue lake

My husband and I did not eat here. We just had drinks at sunset on the patio, as we were guests at the hotel. I had cocktails, both were very good and the second one was one our server came up with! She was so incredibly nice and personable!! We named the drink for her... "Lake Effect." She honestly made... More

We stopped in Erie, PA, on our way to Canada and enjoyed our dinner very much at the Bayfront Grille. I think that eating on the patio made it even better - watching the boats go by and the sky changing color. A fine place to eat.

We so highly recommend this restaurant. Service, food and atmosphere were outstanding. The manager, Ray, was so pleasant and made sure that we were having a great experience. We give him a "10" rating. Our friends with us were from Pittsburgh and we were so proud to bring them to the Sheraton Bayfront Grille.

The restaurant is located inside the Sheraton Hotel. The location is fantastic. It's right next to the lake and outdoor seating is available. It's a bit pricey, but not terrible. The food was good for the price. I think it was what I expected from a hotel. I would eat here again when I come back to Erie. The staff... More

I did not have a good experience when my family and I dined here. To start off, the restaurant was severely understaffed, and our waiter came to check on us seldom, which was understandable. I got the flat iron steak, but it took forever to come out along with the rest of my family's food. When it finally got to... More

We enjoyed our dinner's at the Bayfront Grille! We were seated at the outdoor patio where the atmosphere was very relaxing on the waterfront. Unique choices on the menu compared to the other local restaurants with an extensive drink menu. We were also pleased with the portion sizes of our meals. The steak, crab cakes and perch dinners were all... More
