About West End Tavern

The West End Tavern opened its doors on June 1, 1986, having restored what was once a classic American saloon resembling those that were scattered throughout the New York boroughs during the 1930’s and 40’s.

The Tavern began serving Sunday brunch featuring classic gourmet brunch items not typically found on area menus, including large size Mimosas (champagne and orange juice) in oversized wine glasses and beautifully garnished with fresh flowers. That idea spawned a Saturday morning tradition of our ala carte breakfast AND lunch menu with the focus surrounding our original “Create Your Own” Bloody Mary Bar. Now over twenty some years later, the idea of a bloody mary bar has grown in popularity and has proliferated from our Tavern in Lakewood, Ohio across the country in various bars and restaurants. The whole craze originated right here!

Perhaps the single greatest distinction after thirty-five years for the West End Tavern is that we have heard from well over fifty couples who met here and were eventually MARRIED! Where in the world have you heard anyone making that distinction? Love is in the air at the West End Tavern!

On June 7, 2024, a new chapter of West End Tavern began as new owners Steve Stopko and Tom Gillespie carry forward the legacy of West End Tavern that was started by John, Bob, and Parnell 38 years ago, almost to the day.

While we are going to make some upgrades, know that we are doing so tastefully and in a manner that will not only keep the tradition of this great tavern, but honor the deep history of it.

You’ll still see many of the familiar faces in the tavern, including everyone’s pal Parnell!

So, come in and meet us (and if you’ve ever been to All Saints Public House — you likely already know us!), grab a beverage and maybe a bite from the new menu.

We look forward to meeting you and to another 38 years of serving Lakewood and the surrounding neighborhoods!

– Steve Stopko & Tom Gillespie
