Had a great late lunch in front of the fire, after spending time in Presque state park. Lovely clam chowder, Cajun catfish was excellent, Lem & locs bagel huge. Great meal, great service.

The mussels were delicious and quite large. The perch was the best my companion has ever had and my seafood pasta was excellent. Service was also quick and efficient.

The view is nice if you can get one. Food is good. Only complaint is that it feels a bit cramped when crowded.

We visited friends near Erie, so we went and checked out the tower there, and then went across the parking lot to Smuggler's Wharf. The bar area was very original and enjoyable, but we chose to go outside and enjoy the beautiful warm September day....More
