    We celebrated our 36 year anniversary. The food was delicious… the crew was great. And the ambience was warm and wonderful.

    Food was excellent, prices not too bad. Nice touch from the owner and the chef to stop by to see how things were. John stopped by when we were done and added some extra mashed potatoes to my sisters take home because she had mentioned that previously. A really nice touch.

    We made a reservation well in advance here for an important special occasion. We arrived a few minutes early and the restaurant was about half full. Our young hostess refused to consider any options for seating us at any table other than a high top table in front. Her supervisor finally noticed the hesitation and found another table option out of many open tables. It started off the evening poorly for us, as the young hostess was not super professional and made us feel embarrassed. Most diners would not know what types of seating would be available so might be a selection to add to the reservation rather than leaving it open-ended. If the value of the dinner was worth the high price we probably would try it again. As it stands, the lobster mac and cheese contained about 50 cents worth of lobster and a whole lot of un-wow pasta. We love fried oysters--the appetizer was the only option for this, and was very good, but it was five small oysters and pricey. For this reason, unfortunately, our overall experience was not wow. Our waitress was excellent though.

    As the only oyster bar in Erie, Bay House is unique. The oyster available during our visit were tasty and varied along with the dipping sauces. The food was first rate. We chose to have our steaks covered in a signature sauce and it did not disappoint.

    We had a reservation for six and asked to add one more. They accommodated our request by putting us upstairs. Salmon tasted frozen and not fresh and was dry without the sauce. Filet was cooked perfect as well as the chicken dish. Water was served without any ice. Have had much better. Not very impressed.
