We took the family to brunch for mom's birthday. Have not been there in years. Elvis was an excellent server. The food was wonderful. We had mussels, shrimp, crab salad, prime rib, and oysters. There were so many options. The food was well done, much better than the last time we were there.

Although the menu indicates the surf and turf is gluten free, they served the mashed potatoes on a slice of bread! The waitress and the floor manager were told that my daughter has celiac disease before we ordered. It isn't a fad for her, it is a medical concern if she eats wheat it tears up her intestine and takes... More

My husband and I stopped for a cocktail and a bite to eat. It was a lovely restaurant with great happy hour pricing on food and drinks. We each had the NE clam chowder that was loaded with clams and spit the cheeseburger sliders. The sliders were big and tasted great. We ordered off the bar menu. They do have... More

The food is fantastic, the service superb! The appetizers were delicious including shrimp cocktail, calamari, crab cakes and lobster bisque soup. The entrees' were sumptuous; steaks, lobster, and...

My daughter and I were in Lakewood for a social event on a Sunday afternoon near Pier W so it was a natural to end up there for dinner. The views are always great of the lake and city skyline and we were there early enough to enjoy the scenary before sunset. My daughter had the cedar planked salmon which... More

One of the nicest places to share a Special Occasion right on Lake Erie with a view of Downtown Cleveland. Celebrated with two friends our February Birthdays! A three course lunch special was available: choice of two soups, a fish entree, dessert and beverage. It was excellent for $17! There were many other entrees, salads, and sandwiches availabe. On Sunday's... 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.
