It's a fishing pier that is not recommended at this time for young people but plenty of guys love fishing there. Jeannette's Pier and Nags Head Fishing Pier are more family... read more

We all enjoyed walking out on the fishing pier and seeing what kind of fish people were catching, and just talking to them,and the view looking back at the beach.

I thought we were back in the 60s and I think some of the arcade games hadn't been repaired since the 60s, too. Pretty dirty all in all and really cheap feeling.

We went there but did not go on the pier because they charge $2 for site seeing. We didn't think it was worth it.

I love the Eastern Coastline of NC & SC. We try to go every September when there are less tourists and the beaches are less crowded. We love to fish, snorkel & sight-see. The restaurants are awesome & the shopping is great.

It's a fishing pier that is not recommended at this time for young people but plenty of guys love fishing there. Jeannette's Pier and Nags Head Fishing Pier are more family friendly.

We fished every morning from here. Caught fish and had a good time. We were staying 1 block away so we never had a problem with it being crowed.

We love spending time fishing here! Definitely worth the 12.00 to fish and definitely a great time. Families, couples, anyone! There are arcade games also if the fish just aren't biting!

We decided to do some night fishing so we arrived at 9pm. The pier was packed but still found spots for all of us to fish. The older boys fished with my husband and the 3 year old watch and played arcade games. The only problem was the pier is opened till 2am but the shop and arcade closes at... More

Spent an afternoon fishing off the pier. Reasonable prices for access to the pier. We had our own tackle, so didn't have to rent anything. I think it was $10 to fish. We threw everything back, but actually caught a few keepers. Inside is old and beat up arcade games with prehistoric restrooms. Lots of strange people hanging around the... More
