Cedar Lake, Indiana Restaurant

Pier 74 is so hip. This small Indiana town restaurant is classy yet casual. Sit in comfort and watch the waves break on the bank. 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.

Hubs 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.

Cedar Lake, Indiana: Pier 74 Restaurant and Bar Pulled Pork Sandwich and Onion Rings

Hubs 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.

Everything, and I mean everything, was wonderful!

Swim on In to Pier 74

Okay, so it’s not exactly swimming season, but you get the idea. This is one more Indiana mom and pop restaurant that you can’t miss! Fresher than fresh, creative, and with great views of Cedar Lake, Pier 74 is a culinary delight!
