We had an overall poor experience at this restaurant. Once we were seated by the hostess, we were ignored by the wait staff for 15 minutes. Other diners were getting prompt attention. After flagging down another waitress, we eventually got a server who explained that "someone forgot to write it down." Unfortunately the service didn't improve much after that. The... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. The perch was done very well, as as good or better than anywhere else I've had it. There was a nice selection of salads brought to the table to share as well as celery bread. The service was good. My only suggestion if you're going for the perch is to get the plate of perch...

Missing a recent experience of the Atlantic Ocean, we decided to take a drive to a spot nearby which closely approximated the ocean scene, namely, Lake Erie. We drove down to Port Dover on a cloudy, occasionally drizzly day, arriving about noon. It was not the usual hustling people-filled beach-front area we usually have found there. In fact, we had...

I was part of a group tour that stopped at the Erie Beach Hotel for lunch. We were a party of 40 people. We were greeted upon arrival by the manager and his staff. They took our coats and led the way to one of the dining rooms. There are two large dinning rooms, the Cove Room and The Terrace... More

Four of us visited the Erie Beach Hotel for a weekend get together. This was the first time any of us had been there. We all had different meals but the service and side dishes that went with the main course were plenty and more than ample. That was great and unexpected and complimented the meals that we had all...
