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.

“Sunday Brunch Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Today we dined at Pier W for the Sunday Brunch Buffet. I have been to Piew W many times over the past 45 or so years but, this was the first time for the buffet. It was very good. They had a wonderful variety, something for everyone. Of course, the Pier W ambiance was fantastic. The view of Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline was stunning.
Service could have been better, it was hard to understand our servers broken english and he did not explain the buffet, included items/beverages or omlet ordering, and did not clear the table of dirty dishes in a timely manner which was disappointing. But, I didn't let that take away from our wonderful time there. I would highly recommend the Sunday Brunch at Pier W.

The breakfast buffet was outstanding as was the service. The view of Lake Erie was as though we were dining in the middle of Lake Erie. The variety of foods was superb

“Cleveland's Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

My wife and I had been looking for a restaurant to share a romantic evening. We decided on Pier W and we're glad we did! The design of the restaurant is situated on an overlook of Lake Erie & the city skyline. The atmosphere and view are simply amazing.
The food was excellent and service was top notch. The waiter made us feel like we were the only customers in the room.
If you are in Cleveland, don't miss out on this Hidden Gem.

“Great Atmosphere and View”

Stopped by here for a after work cocktail and was glad I did. We really enjoy the romance this place can bring out. Tough day turned into a great night. Love the food and love the wine selection.
