Lakewood restaurants

Top restaurants in Lakewood, Ohio

If you haven’t yet dined in Lakewood, you’re missing out on some of the best restaurants and bars in the entire Cleveland-Elyria metro area. Here, you’ll find a wide variety of places that serve every type of cuisine you can think of.

Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to find where most of the restaurants and bars are: on the waterfront not far from the southern shore of Lake Erie. Lakewood is also part of Cleveland’s historic streetcar suburbs, so you can expect a unique experience. To reach Lakewood, you can either take I-90 west from downtown and if you like a waterfront view, you can also get there via Highway 20 (a.k.a., Clifton Boulevard), which parallels the lake. But here's a tip: most of the best places to eat are along Detroit Avenue, with a few options further south on Madison Avenue as well.

Once you're in Lakewood, you can find an eclectic collection of restaurants serving cuisine styles like American, Asian, Mediterranean, Middle-eastern, and cafes, to name a few of the more popular options. If you're looking for a reliable landmark, Kauffman Park is a good one because it's near the biggest collection of restaurants in Lakewood.
