It was our first visit and our anniversary. I read reviews and saw the photos and had such high expectations. The night started off great. We were given a window seat and since it was our anniversary, we received a custom menu that said Happy Anniversary. That was a great touch! We got water, ordered drinks and appetizers and were...

On a two day trip to the Cleveland area for a visit to the Cleveland Clinic, my wife and I ate at Pier W. Although we had made a 6PM reservation, we arrived a bit after 5 and asked if we could move our reservation up. They were happy to accommodate us and that was a good choice. We got... More

Most people who dine out can be divided into two camps. Those who enjoy dining because of the atmosphere and those who enjoy dining because of the food and drinks. At Pier W you are guaranteed to satisfy both groups. The restaurant is built on the edge of a cliff on the shores of Lake Erie. The lower part of... More

No wonder Pier W has been named to the list of 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America for 2017! My husband and I were lucky enough to get a prime window-side table during a very busy luncheon service. Some seriously delicious raw bivalves whetted our appetites prior to the most delicious clam chowder we've ordered in a restaurant. He had... More

We arrived early for lunch to get a window table. On a weekday at 11:30 we had no difficulty securing a prime table. The menu includes nearly exclusively seafood. The stuffed shrimp and the plank salmon were favorites at our table. Bread is available upon request. Even the children's menu featured salmon which was a pleasant surprise.

I had the opportunity to visit the Pier W restaurant on Lake Erie. The food was very good. The wait staff was very helpful, friendly and attentive to our needs. While there was a mistake is the soup I ordered, I chose to keep the clam chowder and not send it back for the mushroom soup. The Clam chowder was... More

This is a wonderful way to experience the Pier W; view, cocktails, and food. Happy Hour is from 4 pm to 7 pm and fills up quickly. Great prices on cocktails and food.

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.
