I had one lunch and one dinner at the Bayfront Grille. I enjoyed the chicken salad on a croissant for lunch. For dinner I started with their crab and corn chowder (very good!) and I had the flat iron steak for my entree. It was a very enjoyable dinner with pleasant, efficient service.

Everything was passive, the tastes, the sizes, the service. Crab cake sandwich was messy good. Taste was spot on. Could have used a firmer roll. It broke apart from the get go. Fruit salad had large pieces of fruit that needed cutting to size. A good roll does help make a sandwich. Corn and Crab chowder needed heat. It was... More

We've stayed in Erie on business several times over the years but fortunately over the past few years it made sense for us to stay at the Sheraton at Bayfront. The restaurant in the hotel is the Bayfront Grille. It is literally one of the best restaurants that I know, ANYWHERE! I've had the Egg White with Spinach omelette for... More

The staff is friendly and courteous and everything was quick and efficient. The chowder, I'm pretty sure from Curtze is always good. Vegetarian options are very sparse, but the pickled beet salad was excellent and generally the salad options are ample in quantity and the quality is above average. The view of the Bay out of the huge windows is... More

gab469469, I am so sorry that you did not have the same experience with us this time as you did last time. If I may ask, I am a little confused with the "shareable menu" part of this review.
