Located on the 8th floor of Erie's newest hotel, Oliver’s Rooftop overlooks Erie's beautiful bayfront and indulges guests with inventive and extraordinary cuisine served alongside stunning views and captivating sunsets.

Oliver’s Rooftop is a one-of-a-kind culinary destination that pays homage to Erie’s rich maritime history. Oliver’s Rooftop is named in honor of Oliver Hazard Perry, an American naval commander best known for his heroic role in the 1813 Battle of Lake Erie. Visitors to Oliver’s Rooftop will have the chance to view Perry’s flagship, the US Brig Niagara, in her home port adjacent to the restaurant.

Oliver’s Rooftop is the crowning jewel of Erie’s newest hotel, the Hampton Inn & Suites.

    It was an enjoyable experience. The one thing I look for is the ambiance and noise level. I want to be able to enjoy the people I am with without having to scream at them to carry on a conversation . This restaurant provided that atmosphere. And the wait staff was attentive and personable. Very good experience.

    We had Sunday brunch for 9 this morning at Oliver's. The service was exceptional! We had an 11am reservation so the restaurant was much quieter than when we have visited for dinner. Breakfast burgers, Oliver's omelet, banana foster French toast, eggs Benedict from the brunch menu were all amazing! Chicken picatta and spicy chicken pasta from the regular menu were perfect as well. We were celebrating a 99th birthday and the staff treated our grandmother like queen for the day! The birthday waffle with sparkler was a wonderful surprise. Thank you to our server, John for taking such great care of us!

    What a view! The menu was a smaller one than I've seen in some restaurants but I understand why...its because the chef focuses on serving elite dishes to our taste buds. From the salads to soups to even the drinks we were not disappointed.

    The food was excellent. All the servers & Laura in particular were extremely friendly & seemed eager to make our evening as pleasant as possible. My date & I were celebrating my birthday & when Laura was made aware of this, she brought over a desert (compliments of the house) & birthday card - a very nice touch.

    We decided to try Oliver's Rooftop on several recommendations. In short, the service was excellent and the meal was out of this world. I would have to say one of the best steaks we have had. Russ was our server and he was excellent. Very attentive, polite and fun to talk to. Would highly recommend Oliver's. We will definitely be returning.

    Overall the food was very good. My wife thought the broccili was a little under cooked and for me the potatoes tasted like instant. The carrots and asparagus were done to perfection.And now to talk about my 22 oz. steak.It was out of this world delicious!!! It was done to perfection and the taste was way better than I thought it would be. My wife REALLY ENJOYED the walleye. Our servers name was Russ. I would rate his presentation as a FIVE STAR!!! This dinner was for our 28th wedding anniversary, and it did not disappoint!!! Thank you Olivers for everything.

    Birthday Occasion. Asked to be seated near a window, we would wait for that to open, and it did not happen. Watched as others were read and shown the specials on an iPad and that did not happen to us. Waited for a while to be served and to be given drinks. At the end we were given a birthday desert but we’re charged. We talked to staff and said it was normally comped. We were excited to eat here for a special occasion, and the food was good, but the service was flat out terrible.

    I wanted to Velma cancer survivor day. I made a reservation and was seated promptly. The host was amazing and then after that no one came to our table; We sat for over 30 minutes no one stopped to take drinks ask if we needed anything; we did not see a member of staff until I was fed up and left. Ended up at longhorn steak house. We where seated; not ignored and had our drinks and food in under forty minutes. Maybe I will try Oliver’s on another night but not anytime soon
