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

You just can’t top dinner with a view in Erie! Pull up a chair, sip on your favorite cocktail, savor a delicious meal or relax and catch one of Erie’s world-class sunsets. Enjoy spectacular views year-round at waterfront restaurants like the world-class Bayfront Grille (inside the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel), aerial views of Presque Isle Bay at Oliver's Rooftop (located at the Hampton Inn Erie Bayfront), or at Erie's only oyster bar, the Bay House Oyster Bar. During the winter months, the Bayfront Grille sets up heated igloos for cozy dining at water's edge. When the weather breaks, set the scene for a night out with dinner atop Pier 6 Rooftop Bar and Restaurant, and other seasonal favorites along the water, like the Sloppy Duck Saloon, The Cove, Rum Runners, Woody's Backwater BARge and Grill, and Oliver's Beer Garden

Dog-Friendly Dining

Embrace the charm of dog-friendly outdoor dining year-round in the Erie region and share a meal with your furry companion by your side at various eateries equipped with outdoor spaces. During the warmer months, you can pull up a chair, grab a pint of Railway Hefeweizen, and watch the trains go by at The Brewerie’s pet-friendly Track Side Garden (Thursdays 5-8 p.m.), enjoy a foot-long hot dog with your favorite fur dog at Sara’s or watch the sun go down while listening to live local music at the Edinboro Lake Resort and Sunset Grill. 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 and enjoy a drink with their humans. The brewery even supplies complimentary water bowls for your pup. 

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