Maybe it was an off day, but it was surprisingly a very disappointing lunch all the way around. The food was not good, the server was inexperienced and inattentive and painfully slow. It was very unpleasant and unsatisfying all the way around.

The Erie grill is a little gem on the canal. We sat at the bar for a drink while they clear the table for us. I felt sorry for the bartender as she was the only one and was run off her feet trying to serve both the long bar and beverages for the diners. A few little pieces of French bread were served. We had chosen a bottle of wine and again because lack of staff we waited an unusually long time for our bottle to arrive. The chips and onion dip were an old traditional recipe that we enjoyed prior to having dock and crabcakes. The portions were large and the food was very good. Had there been more staff we would’ve had a more enjoyable time but I do recommend Erie grill

This was a wonderful breakfast get together with friends from out of town. Two of us had the all American breakfast, substituting pancakes for toast(with an up-charge, but totally worth it). The pancakes were fantastic! Another had the avocado toast. It was everything you want in this delicious and healthy meal. Our fourth party member has gluten issues, so she stayed with eggs over easy, cooked medium hard as requested, and gluten-free toast. Service was on point. The view of the canal adds tOverall, this was a great way to spend a Saturday morning.

We shared the charcuterie board. Probably the saddest one I’ve ever had. Don’t bother. The cocktails were good. The service was very good. My chicken pallaird was delicious. My son’s meatloaf was very salty and mushy. My husband’s salmon was ordinary. Nice place though.

To be fair they just recently opened for dinner so the menu options were somewhat limited. Hopefully that will get better with time. Server (Kathy) was very nice, the food was good and the ambiance is always wonderful.

Small menu, but this is quality food over quantity. Sampled the dinner specials, table ordered the lobster risotto and duck pasta and an appetizer of the charcuterie board. Everything was amazing. Slight delay with bar drinks, but staff was apologetic. If in the area, this is an elegant meal/venue right on the Erie Canal.

We always try the house cocktails. Some unusual combinations, but quite interesting and delicious. Same with food. The standards are great, but the specials are always eye-catching and very tasty. Not usually a fan of a strip steak, but had it as a special last night and it was cooked to perfection, juicy and delish! A little noisy with a smallish crowd, but I think that was mainly due to the 2 intoxicated women next to our table. Service always spot on here. We will return again soon.

Once again, the Erie Grill did not disappoint. Even though the menu is slimmed down a bit these days, each dish we ordered was beautifully prepared and presented ... from the panko chicken to the steak special. Best of all, our server, Kathy, always makes us feel welcome and takes care of us with great warmth and professionalism.

We're glad to see that the Erie Grill is open again. Prior to Covid, it was a favorite dining destination for my wife and I. We were there this past Saturday evening for dinner, and were very satisfied. The food was tasty and the service top notch.

We came for brunch on a Saturday morning with a reservation and were seated immediately. The service and food were both outstanding. The french toast was light and fluffy and had piles of delicious strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. My niece had the egg-white omelette and said it was also outstanding, with delicious home fries on the side. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice spot for brunch.

The meal in itself wasn’t terrible.. The chicken was over cooked and the crust was hard, th hey were out of the special by 7:00… Delmonico steak.. not much variety . Server was excellent. The best part . Wine was too expensive.. cheapest red was 50.00.

We were so happy to see that The Erie Grill had reopened, disappointed at the paired back menu especially the loss of the chicken wings which we had ordered multiple times to go . Our waitress was very nice but when it came to ordering our food it went a bit strange . Two of us ordered the chicken which was so over cooked we could barely eat but we asked if we could get a side of fries or potato’s with it , we were told no by the waitress but she’d ask the manager , the manager came over and said no sides but we said the burger comes with fries so you are cooking them , she said yes but you can’t have them with the chicken only the burger 🤷‍♀️what !!so we said can just have two sides of fries and charge us the burger price again no , only if you have a burger so we ordered a burger and fries just to get the fries , seems ridiculous. I then asked for malt vinegar to be told they don’t have any ok I’ll take balsamic..So the next day our friend who ate with us there the night before goes for lunch and low and behold they have fries as a side and he got malt vinegar, we have been going to The Erie Grill for years and the whole no fries situation seems ludicrous especially as they are cooking them with the burger ……
