Smuggler's Wharf is the spot. Great for lunch, sandwiches to prime rib! It's happening indoor or outdoor next to Lake Erie

We ate here for lunch on a recent road trip to Niagara. The kids enjoyed their food and I loved my perch sandwich! The fries were tasty and the service was excellent. The view of Lake Erie and the observation tower was great!

My husband I wanted to eat Walleye while visiting Erie. I was not disappointed in my baked Walleye entrée. I tried the She Crab soup. It was thick, creamy and spicy. The salad was a wedge of iceberg lettuce with onions, carrots, tomatoe, cucumbers, and...More

We ate at Smuggler's Wharf on Father's Day. We did not have a reservation, but was seated within minutes. The food was delicious. The view of Lake Erie was gorgeous. The atmosphere was very relaxing. Will definitely go back next time we are in Erie
