Cedar Lake, Indiana: Pier 74 Restaurant and Bar

Cedar Lake, Indiana: Pier 74 Restaurant and Bar Beef Nachos


Cedar Lake, Indiana may be a summer hot spot, but thanks to great places like Pier 74 Restaurant and Bar, the fun can last year round!

This Lake County restaurant is classy yet casual.

Pier 74 Grill in Cedar Lake, Indiana

Pier 74 is so hip. Sit in comfort and watch the waves break on the bank of this small Indiana town. Totally relaxing.

Black ceiling paint and exposed ducts, are paired with a gorgeous handmade bar, stained glass chandeliers, and a flickering electric fireplace. My coolness level temporarily rose just while sitting there.

As nice as the inside may be, the food is the most important! Luckily, Pier 74 completely rocked it.

We were hungry. Ravenous, even. We started with the Beef Nachos you see above.You’ll need extra napkins for this one!

These Beef Nachos were beautiful. They were tasty. They were eaten very quickly. My husband, Jeremy, and I battled over the last little cheesy bits. I then had to go wash my hands though even on the best of days I make a mess. These were so worth it.

My husband couldn’t decide between the Stuffed Portobello Burger or the Sun-Dried Tomato and Chicken Wrap. But, after overhearing that they had dessert, which included homemade Pumpkin Pie, he ordered the wrap to save room. Of course, that’s before we saw the size of the Nachos!

I ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich (done in-house) with Pier 74’s homemade Sweet BBQ Sauce on the side. Oh, and onion rings. I can’t forget to mention those crispy beauts.
