Just what you expect.

Not all that impressed. It was crowded and loud. If you need to use the bathroom you will pay $0.50.

The pier used to be a good place to walk out onto and look out at the ocean. Now they have a pub at the end that requires a cover charge and along the sides they have either seating for food vendors or closed viewing due to vendors.

I visited the Pier with my little family and didn't find anything exciting about it ! It looks cool from the outside and far away but inside is pretty boring...not my favourite thing and probably won't go back !

Lots of cool shops to window shop at, but they can be sort pricey. Same goes for the restaurants in terms of price. It is a short 10 minute walk at the most. Also, it cost $.50 to use the bathroom.

I went out to the Pier once and probably won't go back. There is really nothing of interest, just some over-priced restaurants and bars. There are a few shops selling souvenirs, but nothing very interesting.

The pier use to be more open as to see the beach. Now it is occupied by several businesses that block the ocean/ beach views. Too bad, but it is the time we now live in.

To me, this looked and felt like a throwback visit and very much reminded me of a visit in my childhood and I don't think much has changed here in years. It still has the old honky tonk look and fell to the beach stores, beach restaurant's, beachside carnival rides. Many things are affordable and within easy walks from the... More

The Pier is mostly small restaurant / bars with a few cheap trinket / t-shirt shops. There`s no view at all till you get to the Pier Restaurant at the end where my wife & I had two drinks (one each) and a small (6) order of chicken wings for $24.00 before tip, a bit pricey I think.

The Pier is ok, a bit white trashy to be honest. The security guards (not the real cops) think they are like special ops so keep that in mind when in the bars on the pier. The bars are fine nothing special. I do think the food is good, well at least late at night when leaving the bar. The... More
