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.

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

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.

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.

I am constantly surprised at how many wonderful things (restaurants, attractions, activities, etc) are in Cleveland. We were taken to Pier W as a special gift, and we were not disappointed. Apparently this has been a restaurant of note in the Cleveland area (this restaurant is in Lakewood) for many years. This is a white-tablecloth and china restaurant - a place where the waiters clean off the tablecloth with a crumb blade, so please don't go thinking this is casual dining. The view of Lake Erie is extraordinary - a reservation for a window table is a must. (You should get reservations, anyway...) Art Deco décor - chairs are a little small and institutional. But the food! Oh, the food! The menu is not narrowed to seafood (beef, lamb, chicken - all available and probably superb) but the seafood is fresh and fabulous....and you have to order each item (veggies and salads are separate from the main course). We had shrimp cocktail appetizers (excellent) and ordered Lobster Bisque or Clam Chowder. Main Courses: Salmon, Scallops, Cod, Tuna, Mahi Mahi - I had a special of Abalone with Bacon. (BACON!) There was no room for dessert, but they sounded fabulous: phenomenal cheese selection, truffle cake, sorbet, brulee, cheesecake.....(roll me out, please.) It is not inexpensive; wait service is refined and attentive without being intrusive (and should be tipped well) - be sure to take walk out on their deck before you leave. (It is reserved for patrons and those who live in the high rises nearby.) Wonderful meal.
