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.

“Excellent, elegant lunch”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

My first time here for lunch. Lunch menu reflects the excellent dinner menu. Server was well trained and could answer food questions in a way that was precise and descriptive. Lobster slider was good, but a bit under seasoned. Crab cakes were very good. You can't beat the view. Experience absolutely worth the price.

“Gourmet Food and Spectacular Views”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had lunch here during the week. The food was out of this world! We had a salmon salad, clam chowder, and crab cakes. The clam chowder was loaded with tasty clams! Everything was delicious! They also serve a selection of fresh breads with meals and tow kinds of butters. It was great that they had selections for smaller appetites instead of all huge portions.

Prices were very reasonable for lunch.

If you are lucky to get a table with a view you can see downtown Cleveland as well as boaters on the lake.

Our waitress was also exceptional.

We are looking forward to going back. This is truly one of the very best restaurants in the Cleveland area!

“extra special for July 4”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very nice restaurant recommended by hotel staff. We enjoyed the view of the lake and the downtown Cleveland skyline, and it was perfect for viewing the fireworks. The food was excellent. My husband enjoyed the cod with Cajun shrimp, chorizo and calamari accents, and my tenderloin medallions were delicious and well prepared. Service was attentive and friendly and the wine list was interesting and fairly priced. Glad we tried it!
