This is a solid casual business person eatery on the ground floor of The Hilton Garden Inn off I-90 in Erie. It also serves Marriott Courtyard Guests who can go through the shared meeting space between the two hotels. (The side of the restaurant has a full bar too!) The restaurant features a compact menu with a few appetizers and... More

I hate to eat at Hotel Restaurants, but this one was surprisingly good! This location is attached to the Marriott Courtyard and the Hilton Garden Inn, which share the same owner. I had a Chicken Sandwich, with a squash and zucchini side. Service was quick, the bill came to $14 with tip, very reasonable.

I was meeting a colleague here for dinner while in town and had a heck of a time finding the location! It's in the Hilton Garden Inn so you have to loop around back and enter through the hotel lobby. Once I found it, I was impressed with the superb service and tasty food. Overall a great value in Erie!

We were reluctant to try this restaurant after reading the reviews online but were pleasantly surprised with both our meal and the service. They had a reasonably varied menu. The food was cooked perfectly. We would eat here again next time.

The food was very good but would have been way to expensive had the hotel not given us a voucher off the cost.

Pasta and shrimp, I am dreaming about it. Drinks are above average, nice selection of craft beers on tap. Service was pleasant, attentive and well timed. Flat bread app was really good, a special one each day. Great prices and interesting decor. Loved it.

I try to avoid motel restaurants but I was tired and decided to try the one in the Hilton Garden Inn where I was staying. I am glad I did. The food was excellent and the waitress was perfect. The waitress was very attentive despite a full restaurant. She was there constantly with refills and constantly checking in without hovering.... More

Very very expensive. High priced meals with low price tastes. Nothing special about what they serve. Basic frozen meals re-heated and put on a fancy plate. Not worth the time or trouble. Next to over priced conference center and hotels. Not worth your time. Very very expensive
