Pier W, a landmark Cleveland restaurant, has been serving a critically acclaimed seafood and contemporary menu since May 11, 1965. Having recently undergone a $3 million interior renovation, the new Pier W resembles a sophisticated luxury liner cantilevered over Lake Erie offering dramatic views of both the Lake and the downtown Cleveland skyline.

We would like to request that shorts, flip flops and baseball caps are not worn to the restaurant.

My husband and I celebrated 10 years as a couple at Pier W. We made reservations for lunch and got a window seat with an amazing view of the lake and downtown Cleveland. We started our meal off with an appetizer of crab cakes, and they were phenomenal. They were bursting with crab! We then had soup: I had the... More

Came from Akron and found attentive and professional service, fine seafood choices for lunch including prix fixe menu, beautiful lakeside view (even in winter), quiet, clean, and tidy atmosphere, prices reasonable for exceptional quality menu and service.

We went here for a special event with my daughter and her boyfriend. The setting is perfect although, since it was winter, we did not get a view of the lake. It was dark by the time we arrived. The restaurant is all glass on the lakeside and there are outdoor tables for nice weather. The restaurant is modern and... More

I went here for a holiday dinner with my parents, who were in from out of town. The view of the lake at night was lovely. The food was wonderful. We shared calamari for an appetizer - the best I have ever had. We enjoyed the Tempura Walleye, the Simple Salmon and the Rainbow Trout. We each declared our meal... More

We have been coming to Pier W for special event dinners for many years. The food always ranges from OK to very good, though the service has always been disappointing. First course: My wife's salad was OK, nothing out of the ordinary; she didn't eat all of it. I had the oysters, which were appealing but as was the case... More
