My friend and I enjoyed a lovely lunch in the outdoor seating area. We had a very good server, and the kitchen was quite willing to adapt the perch sandwich to accommodate my onion and garlic allergy. It was served with fresh seasonal fruit, presented in an adorable little jar. The view here is one of the best in the... More

Really enjoyed three meals here during recent stay at Marriott next door. Compared to disorganization there, very organized and seamless.

My husband and I were celebrating our 29 anniversary ! We had an excellent meal. We started off with a flatbread appetizer, it was very tasty and came out promptly. Then we shared a house salad. I ordered crab cakes and my husband ordered the filet. We both were very pleased with our meals. I was not so pleased with... More

We visited the Bayfront Grille today for a Father's Day meal. What a disappointment! I can see now why they weren't nearly as busy as we expected. We waited quite a while to order our meals, and despite the waitress telling us, "I'll be right with you," she seldom was. We ordered an appetizer, which did not arrive. Finally, after... More

Very good food, good service and a lovely view of the water. Located in the Sheraton Erie Bay Front Hotel, it was very convenient as we stayed in the hotel. The lounge area is very welcoming. Would return.

At there several times while staying at the Sheraton. Servers were efficient and pleasant and the food was very good. It was kinda of pricey but between the quality of the food and the location, it seemed worth it. They accommodated our wishes to eat outdoors even when it was threatening to rain - enjoyed it very much!
