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.

We had a lovely dinner at Pier W this past Easter weekend. Blown away by the ambiance of the sun setting on Lake Erie, the food and service was just as exceptional as the view. They made a perfect Maker's Mark Manhattan! The short rib pierogie appetizer was surprisingly tasty, and although I rarely order anything served in a cream... More

We just did Easter brunch at Pier W and I can confidently say we will never go anywhere else in the future. It was incredible! We had 8 ppl-Brunch was $40/person and quite honestly, I would've payed whatever they asked me to pay--it was absolutely phenomenal. Juices and coffee, along with a complimentary mimosa, were all included. The food was... More

From the view, to the food, to the wine list, and the service, this is still one of the best places around. They really have figured out how to do it all really well. After so many years, to keep getting high marks is unusual. I am in the service industry, so I appreciate when I can just sit back... More

The atmosphere in the restaurant was very relaxing. I really enjoyed the fine dining & music which was played on a piano with a gentleman who was wearing a smokers jacket. My date & I also enjoyed the view of the lake & downtown Cleveland.

Somehow made a buffet brunch exceptional. Everything was fresh, at the proper temperature, and well presented, and stayed that way. Incredible selection included high dollar items like oysters. Unbelieveable waterfront views of the Cleveland skyline, and tons of very good staff.

My wife and I have dined here several times when in Cleveland for special occasions. The food is always exceptional and the unique dining room has a perfect view of the lake and of downtown. For a smaller bite, they have a happy hour on week nights where wine is discounted and small plates are 1/2 price.

If you're in Lakewood, Ohio, this is a must visit! The Happy Hour in the modern bar at Pier W offers phenomenal food at an incredibly low price, not to mention their wine and spirits. If you're in the mood for a special dinner, head into the dining room. The prices are higher, but the food is spectacular, only to... More

Pier W is a Lakewood Classic. An architectural marvel overlooking the lake. Call early to request a window table. The food is always excellent and the staff is wonderful. I've been going there for special occasions and celebrations for over 30 years.
