We were hoping to be able to sit outside, but they were not sent up outside. Our waitress was very nice and attentive, but the food was only mediocre. Some interesting items on the menu which had potential, but the end result didn't meet the expectations.

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.

The food and ambiance were great, however the drinks were terrible and very disappointing. The bar was barely stocked and the selection and quality of the liquor they did have was atrocious. We started by asking for shots of Fireball - the bar was out of Fireball. They were out of Disaronno and the only amaretto was a $10 bottle of junk. Moscow mules were terrible and not served in a copper mug. We ordered coffee and Baileys; while the presentation was nice, the drinks were cold and the cream curdled making the entire beverage unable to drink, not to mention the taste was horrible. The excuse for the poor selection was COVID; interesting as other restaurants and bars I’ve gone to do not have the same problem. If you’re headed here for drinks after work with friends, family, or coworkers, I’d choose somewhere else.

My husband and I were staying at the Sheraton and needed a convenient, dog friendly restaurant and this place fit the bill. The setting and service were fantastic although I thought the food was just ok. I had the perch entree and the cole slaw that came with it tasted like it had been sitting in the refrigerator too long. The fries and perch were ok. Fries were frozen and the perch was a bit bland. It would have been good to have had a lemon wedge to season it. Portions were big but I prefer quality over quantity. I’d still go back for the setting but would try something else on the menu.
