Dining in Erie

Find the best restaurants in the Erie area and a variety of dining experiences. From fine dining to casual, family friendly, ethnic, fusion and grab and go, there is a cuisine to please every palate. You can dine on a rooftop, on the water or the waterfront, bayside, curbside, inside or outside. The possibilities are endless.

Waterfront Dining

If there's one thing you should experience in Erie, it's the unbeatable combination of dinner and spectacular waterfront views! Have a seat, sip on your favorite cocktail, savor a delicious meal, or simply unwind while witnessing Erie’s world-class sunsets reflecting off the water. Enjoy incredible vistas of Presque Isle Bay and Lake Erie year-round at waterfront restaurants such as Oliver's Rooftop (located at the Hampton Inn & Suites Erie Bayfront), the new Two45 Waterfront Grill (inside the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel), and Erie's only fresh oyster bar, the Bay House Oyster Bar & Restaurant. When the weather warms, create the perfect ambiance for outdoor dining with a meal atop Pier 6 Rooftop Bar and Restaurant, and other seasonal waterfront favorites such as the Sloppy Duck SaloonThe CoveRum RunnersWoody's Backwater BARge and Grill, and Oliver's Beer Garden

Family Dining

Gathering the family around the table for a meal provides an opportunity to bond, share stories, and create lasting memories. Elevate your meal to a whole new level of fun by adding a side of duckpin bowling at Quaker Steak & Lube. Make Sara’s Diner part of your spring/summer routine before or after a visit to Presque Isle State Park and enjoy their famous 50's-style diner food: burgers, foot long hot dogs, curly fries, soft-serve ice cream, and floats. The Flagship City Food Hall is a great year-round, go-to option for families with differing tastes, boasting reasonable prices from seven local vendors including Ippa Pizza, Cheeserie, and State Street Taco. Lucky Louies Beer and Wieners' spacious outdoor picnic area is perfect for basking in the sunshine and enjoying an extensive craft beverage selection and an eclectic wiener menu with more than 25 hot dog creations including the eight-legged, kid-favorite Octo-dog.

Dog-Friendly Dining

Treat yourself and your furry companion at various eateries equipped with outdoor spaces. During the warmer months, many establishments open their outdoor patios to guests of all shapes, sizes, and wagging tails! Chow down with your hound for some delicious barbecue at Federal Hill Smokehouse or Underdog BBQ’s outdoor patios or watch the sun go down while listening to live local music at Oliver's Beer Garden. If it’s too cold to sit outside, and barking is kept to a minimum, dogs are more than welcome to come inside Black Monk Brewery or Poverty Knob Farmhouse Ales and enjoy a drink with their humans.

All dog-friendly establishments are marked below with a paw print icon in the listing.
