As of April 1, 2013, The Cleveland Catering Group has assumed the food service management of one of the Cleveland Metropark’s truly unique locations, the Emerald Necklace Marina in Lakewood, Ohio.
Located at the Cleveland Metroparks’ Valley Parkway trail head just below the Detroit Avenue Bridge that spans Rocky River and Lakewood, the Emerald Necklace Marina is located on the banks of the Rocky River in a beautiful park-like setting. It’s a great place to sit and watch the boaters, bicyclists and hikers — or to take a break yourself from participating in those activities!
The Cleveland Plain Dealer published a Restaurant Row story on March 7th announcing that the previous catering company who ran what had been called Sweetwater Landing had lost its bid to renew the lease. With this change in management, the Sweetwater Landing name will no longer be used.
The restaurant has been renamed Nelly Belly Woodfire Pizza and Piadina at the Emerald Necklace Marina. It will be open seasonally starting Friday, May 24th (Memorial Day weekend!), offering quality casual foods, sandwiches, salads, snacks, drinks, ice cream and more. Complete restaurant details here.
An outdoor patio next to the restaurant overlooks the Rocky River and the Emerald Necklace Marina, providing a great place to stop and eat as you enjoy a day in the Valley.
Also located within the marina is The Waterside Room, an event facility open year-round for groups from 35 to 100. The Waterside Room offers a stunning panoramic view of the Rocky River, the boats of the marina, the bridge and the valley cliffs. It is a perfect venue for small weddings, bridal showers, receptions, family gatherings, birthday parties, fund raising events, or community groups. Fully equipped with media presentation tools, the Waterside Room is also a great location for business meetings and presentations.
The Cleveland Catering Group takes over all aspects of the marina food service, restaurant and catering operations. Anyone who contracted for room rental or catering service with the previous management company should contact the new group as soon as possible to re-confirm the date.
