    We started at the bar for drinks and conversation with friends. Service was friendly and fast. Drinks were made perfectly. We moved to table for dinner. Our server was personable and attentive. Nice variety on the menu. Everyone enjoyed their food. Steak was excellent. We had a great time and can’t wait to go back. Very comfortable friendly ambiance.

    First visit here and we came because of specials for Erie Restaurant week. Very nice looking and server was. Very attentive. We did chose the special-Australian surf and turf, with shrimp, not lobster. The food came out warm and not hot. Special we sent it back. And it came back warmer, but not hot. Everything was very good. We shared a raspberry creme Brule for desert. . Will definitely come back again.

    Food and cocktails were delicious! Only recommendation would be putting berries (strawberries, blueberries) in the berries and cream crepes instead of melon. Omelette and French toast was amazing.

    We started with the oysters that were fresh and delicious. Then we ordered the Manhattan Strip Steak and the Salmon dish, and both were cooked to perfection. Our waiter Ryan couldn't have been more knowledgeable of the menu and provided great service. We will definitely be back.

    Definitely overpriced. My piece of Halibut very small for the $34 I paid. Once you add a salad and side my meal alone was over $60. This is Erie Pa not NYC

    Thé oysters are excellent. My halibut was over cooked. The tuna appeared to be correctly seared. I found the side portions to be enormous. They are too big for one person and priced accordingly. I would have appreciated a smaller side and a lower price for it. I don’t understand why a restaurant that seems to be aspiring to be upscale would have TV sets facing the dining area. I found that very distracting.

    This was a first time visit for our group to Bay House and we would highly recommend. The food was outstanding, the waiter was knowledgable and made great suggestions. We ordered signature drinks that were well worth trying and the wine selection was perfect with the food selections. Menu is unique and the seafood fresh . Presentation was impressive as well.

    This is the 2nd time my husband and I ate at this restaurant. Both times were very good! The oysters are fresh and the Delmonico steak is out of this world. Staff is so nice and helpful with any question thrown their way. The ambiance is perfect for date night.

    We had a very nice experience at this restaurant. This is our second visit and it was much improved over the first visit. We requested a downstairs table which was a very smart thing to do. We had an excellent location right in front of the open kitchen. We had a great waiter this time and he really took care of us. Three of us had a great pasta dish and I had the Brazilian fish stew which was excellent. Very nice evening
