We've stayed in Erie on business several times over the years but fortunately over the past few years it made sense for us to stay at the Sheraton at Bayfront. The restaurant in the hotel is the Bayfront Grille. It is literally one of the best restaurants that I know, ANYWHERE! I've had the Egg White with Spinach omelette for... More

The staff is friendly and courteous and everything was quick and efficient. The chowder, I'm pretty sure from Curtze is always good. Vegetarian options are very sparse, but the pickled beet salad was excellent and generally the salad options are ample in quantity and the quality is above average. The view of the Bay out of the huge windows is... More

There was a new shareable menu and wasnt expecting that was looking more for a real menu if we wanted shareable appetizers we would have went to a bar or chain restaurant. Service was fine and the place is clean ill go back but when the... More

gab469469, I am so sorry that you did not have the same experience with us this time as you did last time. If I may ask, I am a little confused with the "shareable menu" part of this review. We do have a different menu, but they are for individual consumption. I want to make sure that this was the... More

I Meet my friend at the Bay Front Grill for lunch. It is located in the Sheraton hotel on the bay. The view of the bay is beautiful anytime of the year but especially that day with fresh snow glistening on the bay. The lunch menu offers a variety of sandwiches , salads, and several entrees. The sandwiches come with... More

So tonight my husband and I decided to take a much needed date night and we chose the Bayfront Grille. The waitress was so very friendly and recommended a dish of escolar (a Hawaiian white fish) with a mango strawberry salsa and man was it by far the best fish I have ever eaten! The chef did such an amazing... More

Originally, we had planned to eat in town, but we were tired , and decided to have dinner an elevator ride away. Very nice service, tasty signature cocktails, pretty view of Lake Erie steak ordered medium was exactly that, crab cakes lots of crab, not much filler. Delicious creme brûlée to finish the meal. The evening was a hit!

Stayed at the Sheraton for a single night and when we checked in the front desk staff recommended we immediately make a reservation at the restaurant as it was the best Sheraton restaurant in the USA. Well, we'd been driving all day and figured eating at a good restaurant onsite would be an excellent idea. We were very disappointed as... More

The ambiance is relaxing and there is a large bar area when you enter at which you can grab a quick snack and drink or enjoy a full meal. The menu has... More
