My husband and I have been exploring restaurants since moving to Erie. We ate outside by the water. It was a wonderful view. Our dinner was delicious. The waitress was overworked but in this post COVID time we understood. Great place. We’ll definitely be back.

My best friend and I had the best experience here on Sunday afternoon at 1:30pm. We sat outside on the patio and it was such a beautiful day! Perfect ambiance. Our server (blonde hair woman) was absolutely amazing! I wish I would’ve gotten her name! She was attentive and went above and beyond! Our Perch Po Boy sandwiches were out of this world too! 10/10 will definitely go back and highly recommend!

It was a special occasion for my wife and I. We were away for the weekend and wanted to celebrate at a nice restaurant. We don’t drink, so we ordered a soft drink and an iced tea. The server was more interested in serving her tables that were drinking. We kind of felt pre-judged because of how she handled our experience. She was literally telling tables that they had an hour and a half and then they had to go.

She didn’t pace the meal properly. The calamari came out first without the shrimp cocktail we ordered also as an appetizer. She explained to us that pantry was backed up and it was taking longer than normal. Ok, no problem but, I thought it could have been handled with more class. Why throw the kitchen under the bus? The calamari was excellent. The Arrabbiata sauce served with it was a nice sauce for the dish. The shrimp cocktail was good. The Caesar salad was warm and over dressed. The croutons in it were nicely done. My wife ordered the strip. She didn’t want any of the sides and when explained to the server, she caught an attitude. She ordered it medium and it was over cooked. It was also way under seasoned. Fat, needs salt. I ordered the pork belly and it was ok. The potato croquettes were the best part of the dish. This also was under seasoned and, tough. It’s described as seared pork belly on the menu. It was seared on one side and not the other. The bourbon infused molasses was absent from the dish. The Brussels and the garlic mashed were excellent.

We passed on dessert and the bill was dropped almost immediately. I marked special occasion on the reservation, nothing was mentioned of it.

What a great experience at Bayfront Grille. This was a really important small reunion and the staff and management went out of their way to ensure our experience was amazing. From the call the day before to adjusting things based on weather and surprises, the team made it all work for us. We will be back again.

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary so we thought we'd go to a bit of an upscale restaurant. We should have stuck to Longhorn's. I had salmon and my wife had a steak. The salmon was nothing special and the small whole onions it was served with were very undercooked. My wife's steak was good, but was served with a quinoa cheese mix with asparagus, which were overcooked. We had two mixed drinks that were very watered down, and were $9 and $10- but the glass of wine was good.

There is no ambience. There is nothing special about the dining area at all. Our server was great and gave us one piece of cheesecake on the house for our anniversary. We appreciated that, but it was rather dry. I know it sounds like major complaining, but it was our anniversary, we wanted it to be special, but this $129 dinner didn't help that at all. It was special, but only because we had each other!
Until they change, I would not recommend it. It was not a good value in any way in our opinion.

We stopped in for a pleasant meal while staying overnight in Erie. We had dined here before and have stayed at this hotel. The menu is continental and somewhat limited but nice.
I had a field salad which contained nice ingredients like diced sweet potatoes and dried apricots and pecans. I then followed with a large plate of chicken fettuccine Alfredo. Very tasty. My companion had a bowl of very hearty chicken and broccoli soup that could have been a meal in itself. He ate every drop. He then had a fried perch sandwich with a nice panko breading. We wanted to try dessert but could not.
