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! Our waterfront restaurants offer dining by rooftop or right along the water’s edge. Set the scene for a romantic date night with dinner at Pier 6 Rooftop Bar and Restaurant or enjoy a meal with friends on the outdoor patio at the Bayfront Grille. Pull up a chair, sip on your favorite cocktail, savor a delicious meal or relax and catch one of Erie’s world-class sunsets. Pictured: The Cove by @vanessadyachkin

 

Erie Food Tours

Learn the history and culture of the region during an Erie Food Tour all while enjoying delicious food from locally-owned restaurants, bakeries, and specialty shops. Whether you're an Erie native or you're visiting our city by the lake, this is the perfect activity for anyone who enjoys eating good food and learning a little bit along the way. There are three food tour routes available: the "Original" Downtown Erie Food Tour, the historic North East Food Tour, and the Happy-Appy Food Tour.

 

 Flagship City Food Hall and Public Market

New to Erie Downtown is the Flagship City Food Hall and the Flagship City Public Market. Located on North Park Row, the Flagship City Food Hall is not your typical mall food court. The Food Hall showcases Erie’s diverse culinary scene with no franchises or chain restaurants. Featuring nine local vendors and seating for up to 160 people, this is the Community’s Dining Room! Just a few doors down from the Food Hall is the Flagship City Public Market, Downtown Erie’s first grocery in decades! The market features three vendors: a full service natural foods grocery store, distillery and butcher market with beef, poultry, seafood and deli selections.

Dog-Friendly Dining

Grab a meal or sip on your favorite drink with your faithful companion by your side. Several local restaurants welcome well-mannered, leashed dogs. Pull up a chair, grab a pint of Railway Hefe Weizen and watch the trains go by at The Brewerie’s pet-friendly Track Side Garden or enjoy a foot-long hot dog with your favorite fur dog at Sara’s just outside Presque Isle.  Man’s best friend is also welcome outside AND inside Black Monk Brewery .  Stop by Icing on the Lake for fresh, homemade doggie treats to reward your special pooch.  They also make custom doggie cakes and cupcakes (order at least 2 days in advance).   To view all of our pet-friendly restaurants, view our dining directory below and look for the special paw print icon.  Photo courtesy of Sara's Restaurant
