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.

Pier W is about a ten minute drive outside Cleveland proper, but with GPS in hand, we braved the drive. (My husband and I are from out of town.) The restaurant is easy to miss since it's set far back from the road and the sign is very unobtrusive. We almost didn’t reserve but since we knew we would be... More

Pier W has been a Cleveland institution for at least four decades. Perched on a West Side cliff, its big windows provide (on a clear night) a beautiful view of the Cleveland skyline. It's a great place for a romantic evening, or a dinner to impress a client. Until today, I hadn't eaten at Pier W since the early 70s.... More

Pier W really is one of a kind in Cleveland. It's great inside and the food actually lives up to the price! The view is great and it also has the best happy hour in the city!!! Must go if you haven't been!

When my husband and I heard that Super Storm Sandy was heading to the shores of Lake Erie we immediately made a reservation at this restaurant. We couldn't think of a better place to watch the waves crash in while sipping red wine and eating fabulous food! We were not disappointed. Our window table was ready when we arrived. We... More

It is worth the drive from Cleveland just for the view of the lake & skyline. The service was nice & the food good. A nice place for a special date.

Pier W is the place to go for a wonderful lunch or a romantic evening out, an abundant brunch or happy hour in the lounge with friends or for business. Exceptional food, good service and an incomparable view of Lake Erie and Downtown Cleveland!

I took a business associate and her mother here last week for a semi business dinner. The view of downtown Cleveland is really great especially with the lake being pretty rpugh that night. The bar staff were very attentive and professional. We had three fish dinners and my plank salmon was excellent as is the wine list. The prices were... More

We were seated at the best table in the house, with a great view of the Cleveland skyline. But not sure if I would return for the food. Nothing was inspired. Yes, the walleye was well prepared, but over all the meal was bland. The service was very good. The wine list not exceptional, but OK. Also, beware, this place... More
