This is the second time that we came to Erie, PA from Michigan, and we liked Joe Roots so well last time that we went again. In fact, they let us leave our van in the back, and bike the Presque Isle for a few hours, before coming in and enjoying some GREAT food!! We started out with their great clam chowder and crab stuffed mushrooms, and was going to order the Flagship Niagara Platter of Shrimp, Scallops, Clams and Whitefish, but we seemed to have just enough, and didn't order this time........ But they make everything great!! And the staff is always fun, happy, and ready to help you at any time!!
