This is a great place for groups, big families, or anyone grabbing a meal who may not have made reservations elsewhere. Menu is diverse so even a picky eater can find something they like.

The food was delicious and it was easy to determine what I could safely eat as a celiac. It was very hard to hear the others in my group.

We went for the Mother's Day Brunch. It was the perfect time of day. The only thing I would like to see is maybe at least one other fish/ seafood selection as I don't eat much meat.

The Mother’s Day buffet was very good. All of the buffet items were delicious and constantly replenished. The music provided by Moss Stanley was an added bonus. Our server was attentive and helpful.

The entire family had a wonderful time at Pickwick & Frolic for their Mother's Day brunch. The food was excellent and the service was even better! The restaurant was less crowded than last year which allowed us to take our time and enjoy the full experience without feeling overwhelmed. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our every request. My only wish would be for more seafood options on the menu next year. We will be back!

Sausage Party was amazing. Scallops, Filet Mignon and the Prime Rib is superior and the drinks were stronger than average and tasty. Doing dinner before a comedy show is as good as it gets.

My wife and I made our reservations for 5:15 through open table easily. Seated at 5:12. We enjoyed a nice appetizer of calamari. Then our main course meals. All came in a timely manner and tasted great. Nice portions at a reasonable price. We saved just enough room for a cocktail. Then casually walked over to be seated for the show by 6:30 for a 7:00 show at Hilarities.

Second time I have been here. Great service & food, once again. Tried something different this time - their prime rib was excellent.
Definitely recommend it to everyone I know.
Reservations help if you want to grab a bite to eat before an event.

The food choices and food quality were both excellent. It would nice, however, if the dessert choices were much more extensive. I was disappointed in the lack of available selections. With 2 of the dessert options being ice cream, that leaves only a couple other basic choices on a very short dessert menu.

Atmosphere was great. Service was good. Food was disappointing. I was told the balsamic vinaigrette was made in house and my taste buds told me otherwise. It had that unmistakable low fat commercial dressing taste. My asparagus was bitter and tough. My friend’s prime rib was served well done when medium was requested. The replacement was medium well because that is all that was remaining (at 7 pm).

Easter Brunch!!!
Great food selection accommodates everyone's life style. The food note cards.. great idea ..removes the guess work for gluten, vegan and dairy customers. Service and food, as usual, was outstanding
Special Note: The salad bar items are always fresh, pasta dishes were great, my favorite was the chicken pasta dish. Salmon was cook to perfection. The owner adds such a special touch as he has genuine great conversation with each guest, love that personal touch. Great place for family and special holidays.

We enjoyed the Easter Buffet very much; a wonderful variety of very tasty food with something for everyone in our group. We asked about seeing the rest of the venue and were given a private tour of the comedy club, champagne bar, martini bar, and cabaret theater- all fascinating. In all, we found this to be a great spot for a fun evening out or special occasion.

We've gone to Pickwick and Frolic for Easter brunch for years and have never been disappointed. The selection is amazing and the staff attentative. The only issue is how much you can/should eat with such a selection.

It was okay. It was our first visit. It was early and not busy. The martini was good as was the salad (wedge). My steak was average -not for $41 for the filet. The asparagus was the biggest I’ve ever seen and not really what I expected. I thought for the dinner we got it was a little overpriced. I don’t mind paying for excellent quality but this fell a bit short of my expectations.

Pickwick and Frolic has a nice combination of upbeat and laid back vibes - great for a relaxing Saturday date night. I had the Cajun Chicken Fettuccini, which had a wonderful spice to it, and my boyfriend had the Rotisserie Roasted Prime Rib (which also looked phenomenal and he said as much). Dinner was a lovely prelude to our comedy show experience, with a comedian that had us laughing so much we were in tears. Looking forward to going back soon - East 4th St. is one of the true gems of Cleveland!

We have been to Pickwick & Frolic in the past and had a very nice experience, however, this time the food was just average. There were 7 of us and it was our overall consensus. Unfortunately, the show was not as funny as we've experienced in the past either. We will be back, but may eat close by and then go to the show.

I went for a family dinner and it was very appropriate for that with enough options for my teenagers. The menu had enough options but was somewhat unremarkable. The service was good and prompt. I would come back for something casual but not for a special night out.
