We have eaten at the Bayfront Grill several times for dinner and have never had an issue. We went there for breakfast to celebrate my mother’s birthday and unfortunately had a very disappointing experience. The service was very slow and the food was cold and not appetizing at all.

Customer obsession is their standard from the minute you walk in. We had a great visit with Jacob our waiter and Shannon the manager. The food selections were fresh and seasonal. I had the pork belly. The intricate peach bourbon smear was on point and had me craving for more. The croquettes brought me back to my love…Espana. We also had the cauliflower rice and the filet…all were delicious with robust flavor profiles. The view is fantastic as we watched the Lake Erie sunset. Add this to your list of must tries….looking forward to our next visit.

I spent $200 on dinner and received raw salmon, a low quality strip steak and flavorless pasta. It’s been years since I’d been here and I was extremely disappointed with how far downhill it’s gone.

Waited 25 minutes and never got waited on. Went and told hostess we’d not had a server-she said she’d take care of it- we left 10 minutes later never having been acknowledged. Was supposed to be a special anniversary special dinner surprise for my husband. I left embarrassed and mad. Never again

We had a great experience at the Bayfront Grill. The food was delicious with good portions and serving times were quick despite the holiday weekend. The view was terrific and everything was clean. Prices were a bit high, but they were in line with what you would expect at a touristy location.
A special thanks goes out to Amelia, the hostess, for making our experience just that much better. She was amazing, and despite the holiday weekend was able to move our dinner table and gave us a perfect table for breakfast. Thank you so much!

I made reservation and upon arrival I was not being greeted by Hostess, who was listening messages and writing them down. After standing there for few min she looked at me very annoyed. Still no greeting. I told my name and told her that another friend will be joining us, so it will be 3 of us. She looked at me and again all annoyed grab another menu. She seated us and told server be right with us. Server came and asked are we are ready. I asked for few more minutes to wait for our friend. She said ok and come back after few minutes and told us that we only have 1hr and 30 min to dine and due to Covid. And did Hostess told us that because I added another person we will need to vacate table exactly at 5:30m ( reservations was at 4pm). I apologize and told that hostess didn’t say a word ( with all due respect- personality of the hostess was non existent), but we gladly to move to smaller table and just add the chair, but server told that it’s not allowed. We had our drinks and charcuterie plate and then Manager came over and told the same thing that we gona need to leave at 5:30pm. At that point was becoming ridiculous an comfortable, we got that in the first place. So at 5pm we were asked if we ready for main course. How can they cook it and we will eat in 5 min?!?? So no, then Manager came over again and asked that it’s time to move. So we did.
I’m not writing this to be annoyed or insulted, it was very uncomfortable experience. I had worst and I had better. maybe it helps planning experience for other diners.

We visited the area for a long weekend celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary.
The food was really good, the bread was amazing, and the service was awesome. I’m glad we chose this place. Strongly suggest reservations as we did this in advance a couple weeks and could still only get a 4pm (a lot earlier than we wanted) reservation.

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.
