The Old Erie used to be more of a diner-type restaurant several years ago. I'm not sure what happened since, but it's now more of an upscale-like diner, which is odd especially for its setting. The staff are mostly high-school kids, but they are well-trained and mannered. The food is typically italian, although you will find other items. The prices are OK, prehaps a bit better than usual. Also, the food is good in general and prepared quickly.
