Each event is put into motion, specific to the needs of you and your guests. No two events are the same at Pickwick & Frolic and we pride ourselves on being a unique space with one-of-a-kind offerings.

Pickwick Restaurant

Conviviality – relating to, occupied with or fond of feasting, drinking and good company! The spirit of conviviality is what Pickwick & Frolic was created upon and it is what we strive towards; every guest, every visit.

In the Pickwick Restaurant, we offer an amazing experience centered around outstanding food! The unique dining room has a warm and comfortable atmosphere, which feels intimate whether your party is 2 or 20! The dining room itself is made up of two areas, with our Semi Private Dining Area able to accommodate your group for lunch or dinner. In order to fully enjoy your experience as a large group, we may suggest that your guests order from a limited number of menu items.  This ensures a high quality, efficient and enjoyable dining experience for all guests.

Pickwick & Frolic is one thing Cleveland has that no other city does! Take the opportunity to impress out of town guests with dinner at Pickwick & Frolic! Not only will the atmosphere wow visitors, they will also be impressed with you!

You hardly need a reason to get together with family or friends. Our Rustic American approach to “comfort food” is sure to please all palates. Plenty of wonderful food to share will encourage lavish conversation and story telling!
