The Boardwalk and The Upper Deck welcomes large groups to our beautiful waterfront destination!

We can offer groups multiple options:

  1. The Boardwalk’s MAIN DECK is IDEAL for groups with different tastes who want a more casual, relaxed experience with a wide array of indoor and outdoor seating. The Main Deck allows large groups to select menu options in a self service format from any one of our three food concessions, as seating is always available on any one of our spacious decks on a first come, first serve basis.
  1. At The UPPER DECK we do NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS, except for parties of 16 or MORE ONLY Monday through Thursday. Please contact our group coordinator, Laura Booker Coviello at 216-970-9196.

The majority of our tables accommodate up to 6 people and we have a large amount of these tables. If you are a smaller group, please step up to the hostess stand. We will be happy to seat you as quickly as possible!

Any other size groups are welcomed to stop at our Hostess Stand and you will be seated on a “First Come, First Serve” basis. Should there be a wait for your table, we have a Guest Paging system to let you know when your table is ready. We will welcome you to sit, relax and enjoy the view, and a beverage at any of our bar locations while you wait. Ask your bartender about our specialty hand-made cocktails of the day!


For groups of 25 or more guests, please contact Laura Booker Coviello. Laura will be happy to answer any questions you may have about booking your next group reservation at The Boardwalk’s Main Deck or The Upper Deck. She will provide you with excellent service as she assists in your choice of location and menu items.

The Upper Deck specifically offers a wide array of Gluten Free Items: Breads, Buns, Salad Dressings, Entrees and Side Dishes. Guests are welcomed to ask their server for our dedicated Gluten Free Menu. The Boardwalk Main Deck Does Not Offer Gluten Free Options at this time.



While we are happy and able to accommodate Gluten Free Diets, by using Gluten Free Products, and Sanitizing work and cooking surfaces, we still can not guarantee that we are 100% Gluten Free Kitchen.  The High Volume nature of our kitchen and also with the amount of other Gluten Containing items throughout our kitchen, we can’t not say there is not a small chance of cross-contamination. Please let your server or bartender know about Gluten sensitivity and we will make sure to properly communicate that to our kitchen staff.
