Check out the crab soup and eat in the bar if the restaurant is full. Such helpful friendly staff and delicious food!

Was pleasantly surprised at menu options. But why not have real maple syrup for such a lovely meal? I would gladly pay extra.

We went here because it was in the hotel where we stayed. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer. It was very good. Then we ordered the baby wedge (bigger than baby size) and the house salad. Large portions. We had the seafood with tagliatelle and portebello ravioli. Excellent taste and service was great. Portions are large.

I got to experience the Bayfront Grille during my recent stay at the Sheraton Bayfront Hotel while on business in Erie. Since time was somewhat limited, I needed a convenient breakfast which meant eating at the hotel. I expected to spend a little more, and fortunately, the Bayfront Grille came through with a couple of good meals. On my first... More

The food was very good and the staff and kitchen seem to understand the importance of separate areas for preparation of gluten free food. We both enjoyed our meals and the view of the lake is very nice as well.

We walked over from the Courtyard to have a late breakfast. Restaurant was empty and was seated at a two top, when there was plenty of other seating available to make a guest more comfortable. Server appeared right away and took our beverage order. We placed our breakfast order and it seemed to go downhill after that. The breakfasts arrived... More

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.
