We enjoyed our visit to Jeannette's Pier while invited to a wedding. The spot was so delightful, gorgeous view and plenty of space to dance and celebrate an event. Food was good, i assume it was catered by a selected business in town. Not sure who it was.

Concrete pier, too high up over the water to do any kind of jigging...End of the pier is "owned" by the locals, better off visiting one of the other classic piers in the area !!!

My husband and I are from a state that is land bound so when I saw this massive structure stuck out in the ocean I was amazed. I have seen lots of piers and I am sure there are bigger and better but I thought it was amazing. We did not even go down it but we went under, around... More

Whether the waves are crashing on the beach or the sea is placid, the pier offers beautiful vistas. You can watch seabirds diving for fish, pelicans skimming the waves, and see fisher folk casting and catching. It is a well maintained pier with a large gift shop you pass through going onto it. If you like fresh air and a... More

Beautiful new building and recently renovated pier. Aquarium on the main floor wasn't working at the time that we went but nonetheless is worth the trip. Perfect for pier fishing. Great event space upstairs available for reasonable pricing. Decor left a bit to be desired ( weird carpet) but the view is absolutely incredible.

By all means, if the surf fishing is not working for you, go out on the pier. Bring your own gear or rent it there; bait is also available as are ice and snacks. Apparently owned by the State, the pier is very substantial. Many benches with bait cutting counters built in; fish cleaning stations with running water; nets are... More

We came here to do some fishing during our OBX vacation. Very clean and a cool pier that stretches out into the ocean. We didn't catch anything worth keeping, but had a lot of fun. Locals, vacationers, seniors and families will enjoy this place. I liked the indoor tank that showed the kind of fish you could catch. I didn't... More

This is an enjoyable place to just sit and relax for a small fee. Walk out on one of the most modern piers on the outer banks. Enjoy the sun and feel the surf as you walk way out into the Atlantic. Watch anglers attempt to catch the big one. Enjoy a sunrise or a sunset from the pier. Its... More

This pier originally built in 1939 and pretty much destroyed hurricane Isabel was rebuilt by the State of NC and is one of the NC Aquariums. It is fabulous!! A pier fisher's dream. We highly recommend this pier.....(and we caught fish, too!)

My husband and I love this place. The facilities are clean and very well kept. The fee is a minimal $2 a person which gives you an all day pass (from 5am to 12am). We visited the pier that morning and again late that night. There are several benches along the pier, and we spent hours just site seeing and... More
