Igloo Dining in Erie PA
By Christine Temple
Every day visitors and local residents make their way to the Bayfront Grille inside the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel to experience cuisine unlike any other run-of-the-mill hotel restaurant. Their ever-evolving seasonal menus offer up a range of traditional dishes to creative selections. But the variety doesn’t stop with the food.
In addition to indoor seating, the Bayfront Grille has a beautiful outdoor patio with breathtaking waterfront views, perfect for enjoying the warm summer sun. When the weather outside turns frightful with cold snowy blasts of winter, fear not outside dining lovers. This restaurant has got you covered; literally.
Introducing Outdoor Igloo Dining. Starting with just one table to test the water a few years ago, the hottest (yet coldest) seat in town grew to be so popular with guests that the Sheraton made the decision to now have a total of five igloos for the 2021/22 season.
Each covered climate-controlled igloo seats up to 8 people and is available (with a reservation) for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Perfect for a romantic evening or a family get-together. They are set on the north-facing patio with scenic views of Presque Isle Bay.
The clear plastic domes were manufactured by Garden Igloo. A space heater inside each igloo keeps diners at a comfortable 70 degrees. Sand bags around the bottom of the structure hold it in place and can sustain winds up to 50 mph. Reservations can be made by calling 814-454-2005 ext. 2 or online through Open Table. The outdoor dining igloos are available November 15 2021 through April 15, 2022.
