Erie County is a hot spot for new restaurants, local food trucks, scenic waterfront dining, and classic bars. Culinary hot spots are popping up all over town, catering to the discerning diner and cocktail aficionado. While hot restaurateurs and chefs are bringing their best to Erie, we pride ourselves on some of the region's most legendary family-owned eateries. 

Love local fare? Any current or former resident will tell you that Erie is all about the pepperoni balls, Smith’s hot dogs, Greek dogs, and locally made chocolate from Pulako’s, Romolo’s, or Stefanelli’s. 

Erie County is also home to some of the finest local breweries and wineries in the region. 

We welcome you to visit each member microbrewery and sample handcrafted beer from each.
Lake Erie wine county is 53 miles of unique wineries and gorgeous vineyard vistas nestled along the shoreline of Lake Erie. It’s where you can relax and enjoy authentic, handcrafted wines (and even brews and spirits).
