My husband and I celebrated our anniversary by going to the restaurant. We went for Happy Hour on Saturday. The restaurant has Happy Hour from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Happy Hour is only in the bar. However, the bar area is very spacious. The view of the lake and downtown Cleveland is beautiful. Sitting at the bar drinking one... More

Pier W has one of the best brunches I've experienced. Lots of selections, live music and great service. No matter what "type" of brunch you prefer they have selections to please any palate. The only thing I've noticed, the manager is extremely aloof, he only greets certain guests and has the most unwelcoming demeanor I've seen in a while. However... More

I had the sliders, 2 beef and one a Crabcake. They were very tasty and served with fries. No need for any codiments. My wife had the... More

I only gave it 4 because of the reservation mixup. We went for our anniversary. We had made a reservation but they could not find it. They did find a table for us although not in the area we requested. However we did have a view of the lake. Our server,Greg, was super. He respected our wishes to take our... More

Fabulous view over Lake Erie tasty food with exceptional quick and efficient service. The menu offers a nice variety though I thought the dessert selection was weak. The rest of my dining party disagree with me on desserts. For main meals, we had very tasty scallops, shrimp stuffed with crab and a simple cod, all with great presentation. Upper range... More

I visited Pier W with a client and a colleague on a Wednesday evening around 6:15. The place has spectacular views of Cleveland from its cliffside perch. We initially went out on the top patio, which is above the main restaurant, and enjoyed the view to the east, which is the Cleveland skyline. We then went inside, down the stairs,... More

Pier W has delightful views over Lake Erie and of the Cleveland skyline. Their food is worth it, although pricey. We were there for an engagement dinner and had a wonderful time with family. The restaurant has been renovated since the last time we all were there (25 years ago!) and is sleek and modern vs. the old nautical/pirate style.... More

First of all, this place is not known for being cheap, but their happy hour is killer. You can definitely eat a full meal from the happy hour alone. Tasty drinks and apps that you can fill up on easily. The dinner is also delicious, though. Everything is just absurdly fresh. This is a great place for anniversaries, birthdays, etc.... More

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.
