Food Porn: Bedrock Eatery

This is what the seating area looks like.

The Bedrock Eatery is far from ostentatious. Impressed with my big words? Well, it means “showy” or “flashy.” And that’s what the Bedrock Eatery is the complete opposite of. It’s a very laid-back restaurant in Hamburg right on the coast of Lake Erie. The location is their selling point because you get a gorgeous view of the lake whether you’re inside or outside. It’s an absolutely perfect place for a relaxing summer afternoon.

The walls are adorned with many different kind of sailing themed ornaments. It may seem somewhat tacky, but it is actually kind of neat. I was impressed with a display hanging on the wall that had miniature versions of different kinds of rope knots that I guess sailors use. It’s not a typical type of sit-down restaurant with waiters and waitresses; you order at the counter.

The menu contained a wide variety of food. There are many different types of hamburgers. The sandwich selection was quite large too with steak, tuna, chicken, and fried bologna. Perhaps the most unique items on the menu were the salad bowls. For those who are unfamiliar, it is salad served in a tortilla shell. More on that later. The only problem was that fish is only served on Fridays… You’re on the lake, you really can’t serve fish on days other than Friday? Send one of your workers on a boat in the lake and get some fish for crying out loud.

We sat down at a plastic table inside and the view of the lake was great. It was very relaxing as we waited for our food and listened to the mellow music. Then, our number was called and we got our food.

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to do an aerial picture of my steak salad. Lesson learned. The steak was very tender and it was loaded with shredded cheese (love) and had tomatoes, onions, and I got mine with bleu cheese dressing. It was extremely filling and very delicious. The only problem was that it was PACKED with tomato cubes. I’m not a huge fan of tomatoes so I kept picking them out. Also, the onions were cooked or carmalized or something. I prefer my onions raw, but it was good nonetheless. The tortilla shell was a great touch!

My brother got the Bedrock Supreme Burger. It contains cheese, bacon, and BBQ sauce (which he used to dip his fries in.) It was a pretty standard run-of-the-mill burger but he said it was still very good. The fries were very crispy, although he could have used some more of them.

The other members of our party got the taco salad in a tortilla shell. One was not too pleased saying that there was not enough meat in it but the other seemed to enjoy it very much. They enjoyed the tortilla bowl very much as well.

The prices were reasonable. Everything was well under ten dollars. (You just have to watch out for the drink prices.) Overall, I was very pleased with my experience and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. I loved being out by the water and it made me appreciate Buffalo that much more.  With it’s plastic chairs and paper plates, don’t expect anything too fancy. If you’re ever in Hamburg I’d suggest you go and check this unique place out.

Then maybe you can hit up the beach afterwards.

    I said there wasn't enough meat, not that there was too much. And you call yourself a reporter...

    also, and this is just me being picky, it should say "completely opposite of" and "whether you're inside"

    but other than that bad job ;)

    The fish fry is excellent, one of the best in Buffalo.
