Description: 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.

Visited for the Sunday Brunch. Fantastic selection. Started with mimosa cocktails and a beignet doughnut each. Light and fluffy. Started on the brunch with rare tuna on a polenta cake, lobster croquettes, shrimp, bluepoint oysters, and some smoked salmon. All were perfect and left some room for other items. Next tried one pierogi with onions and sour cream, some crispy... More

My daughter took me to Pier W for my birthday. We love grazing appetizers and so choose to go for Happy Hour! And we couldn't have been happier...the prices are reasonable and the food is amazing with a great selection. Calamari, a pizza, and, not on the happy hour but well worth the price, oysters with an unique sauce....and a... More

I tried some new items for me and was quite happy. For appetizers I tried a bowl of the clam chowder New England style with freshly steamed Manila Clams for $6.50. Then I ordered the lobster bisque which was very creamy as advertised ---- as classic style with fresh Maine lobster and brandy. It was the best I have ever... More

Today, my family and I had Thanksgiving Dinner at Pier W. The service, food and location was amazing. The server's were very professional, friendly and welcoming. They seemed to have been happy to serve us. Also, it was refreshing to see such young servers acting in such an adult manner. Our waitress was so so helpful in helping us understand... More

Good restaurants eluded us this trip to Cleveland. Pier W was the shining exception. The restaurant was full on a bitter cold Monday night, always a good sign. The wind chill that evening was -10 yet people were waiting for tables. We had a reservation and didn't have to wait. Our server was friendly, answered all the menus and was... More

I've been to Pier W twice, and ordered the same meal because the first time I ate it it was the absolute best salmon I've ever eaten in my life. I was NOT disappointed! Location: Beautiful. The view of the pier is breathtaking, excellent for romantic dining. Service: Fantastic! I ate at the bar the second time, and the service... More

We were here celebrating our engagement and my aunt and uncle's 38th wedding anniversary. The lobster bisque, although salty, was the best I have ever had. All the food was delicious. The waitress was friendly. The manager gave us free dessert in honor of our celebrations. Normally, the view of Cleveland and Lake Erie is superb from the dining room's... More
