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.

Great dinner, great view.

Pier W is a 15 minute cab ride from downtown but if the weather is clear, this place offers uncomprible views of the city you won't get anywhere else. Besides the view, the restaurant is built into the side of a cliff looking out over Lake Erie. Food and service is exceptional, with wonderful... read more

Great view of Lake Erie and Cleveland Skyline inside and outside of restaurant. Food is a little expensive, but very good. Service is good. Great place to take visitors from out of town to show off the city!

For a spectacular view of downtown Cleveland, great food and service, Pier W has it all! It's the place to go for a special occasion, Sunday brunch, or happy hour on the deck and has been in business for 50 years!

After a visit to the west side market we stopped for a break on the way home. The cocktails, appetizers and lake view make it the perfect combination. We sat on the lounge bar area and met several nice folks around us. It gets to be a busy spot for the after work crowd. There was a home Indians game... More

Very cool place. I had remembered going as a kid with my parents and wanted to check it out again so I took my fiance. The food was very good and of course the view of downtown is amazing. I would definitely recommend for a special occasion.

We went here for my husband's birthday and made a reservation through Open Table. We arrived earlier than expected but were seated right away by the window which was a treat! The view of Lake Erie and Cleveland's skyline was icing on the cake. The food was great. Our starters, crab cakes and scallops, arrived quickly. My husband's steak was... More

This is our favorite restaurant in the Cleveland area! It's a beautiful restaurant perched off of a cliff with scenic views of the lake and downtown Cleveland. The service and the food are always excellent!! To this day, it has the best lobster bisque I have ever had, and I've tried my fair share! On this particular trip, I tried... More
