Great food with nice view of Cleveland. Service was very attentive and good. We had a window table and it felt like we were on a cruise.

I met a few friends for Sunday Brunch at Pier W. It's a wonderful location on the shore of Lake Erie with a great view of the Cleveland skyline. It's a must to go eat place with fresh seafood, sushi, fruit, and the usual eggs, potatoes, bacon sausage and a complimentary glass of mimosa. Also, awesome desserts.

Pier W is far and away the finest restaurant in Lakewood. The food is always excellent and their happy hour is to die for. Make reservations early to insure a table by the window for a breathtaking view of downtown and Lake.

Took my son here for brunch buffet. He was the only one who ate the chicken. By the time we got to cedar point he was feeling sick. Vomited all day! Waste of money! And my son will never forget this day!

Returned here last night bringing with me a party of 14 from our company. I've been here many infrequently over the years. I have no complaints about the food, it's uniformly very good to excellent although pricey. Last night the oysters from Cape Cod were fresh and perfect. I do have a few pet peeves that I wish management would... More

This is one of Clevelands most iconic restaurants. Situated on Clevelands 'gold coast' the view of Lake Erie is spectacular and at night the downtown skyline is breathtaking. The food is superb especially the seafood. If in Cleveland, this is a must visit place.

Visited Pier W Sunday morning for their legendary buffet(Their words, not mine). They are now my words, also. Most likely, the best brunch buffet I've ever attended. The food was top notch, the view was magnificent, and the service was impeccable. The food options to chose from were vast and all very good. A little pricey, but worth every penny.... More

Pier W has been around for 51 years according to its hostess. The restaurant resembles a shipping vessel and sits cantilevered off a cliff on Lake Erie. It offers a gorgeous view of the Cleveland skyscape. Lunch service was impeccable thanks to knowledgable, and attentive Terri and her capable assistants). The wine list is reasonably priced, especially for its quality.... 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.
