One of my FAVORITES

I love this place. We have been several times and always had excellent service. The very best thing I've had... and the reason I will always go back.... is the grilled calamari appetizer. Delicous! The Mediterranean Pasta (also with calamari) is my 1st choice for dinner. I've had a steak only once, and it was ok but not memorable. When the weather is nice, the patio on the river is also lovely.

Chicago's Best Kept Secret

One of Chicago's best kept secrets! Terrifc food and service. Our server could not have been any nicer or attentive. The food is great. Nice portions, not too fancy. I highly recommend.

NOT WORTH IT

You probably will have better service and food at an OUTBACK STEAK HOUSE.
Summer patio is nice BUT not worth the money or calories...

very good

I am quite surprised at earlier reviews. Have been to Erie a dozen times. Food has always been much better than average. Steaks outstanding. Quality of personnel is superb. I highly recommend.

Expensive for what you get

The salad and potatoes that come with your $30. (plus) petite filet (which was tasty at med. rare) were AWFUL. Plain iceberg (read white) lettuce-and overdone, fried, hard cottage potatoes - unedible. For that kind of price, where's the nice spring mix greens? And at least include a baked potato. (extra potato choices are extra $$ as well as $7.50 side dish of mushrooms) Rip off. There are too many other wonderful places in Chicago to try Erie Cafe again.

""eerie"" cafe

The first time I went to the Erie Cafe, I thought my filet was over-cooked. I ordered my steak medium-rare but, the steak arrived medium-well. I didn't send it back and was disappointed with the taste which I attributed to the over-cooking. I tried the restaurant again some time later and again ordered a filet medium-rare. The steak was more rare than medium but still acceptable. The taste however, was not acceptable. The steak was very bland. The sides were okay but not impressive. It is ashame because the atmosphere great as is the location. I cannot recommend this restaurant.
