I absolutely love Jennette's Pier! By far the best pier in the outer banks. It has become a tradition for us to spend at least on day here, no matter where we stay. There is a fee to walk out(I think it's $2), but we'll worth it. The upstairs balcony is so relaxing.

I took my in-laws here for a scenic walk, they loved the shop inside. Watched some surfers surf and saw many people fishing. Nice afternoon stroll or easy location to fish with benches and fish cleaning areas. Someone even caught a shark. It's $2 to take a stroll. I recommend!

Our kids love this pier and my husband remembers the old pier from his childhood, fondly. Nice facility.

Well. . . I never thought I would find a yuppie pier. This place is too nice. The pier is concrete and does not move with the waves, no splinter in feet when walking with no shoes, bummer. Rest rooms real clean, I could sleep on that pier. Some old timers on the end, rest were some that had no... More

My family signed up for the Family Fishing class one morning and we weren't really sure what to expect. It ended up being a great experience and the guys who were there "teaching" were awesome. The rods and bait were provided and we had pier access for the whole day (to watch, not fish) if we wanted to stay. If... More

We just walked on the pier, it was absolutely beautiful! Lot's of folks fishing, didn't see to many fish that day. There was a surfing competition going on, gave us a good view. A must do while in the outer banks. A walk on day pass is only 2 bucks! Wish we had brought a picnic!

We love to take a stroll out to the end of the pier, watching to see who's catching what! Enjoy the scenery, the beautiful ocean.

My sister and I were expecting a little more. Its older and the cliental was on the shady side. The food and service was good. But we paid $10 for a hamburger! That could be made at home just as easy. The family that was seated next to us was sooo loud.

After the hurricane destroyed the original pier it was rebuilt and is not a beautiful structure for the area. Great to fish from and have fun. A place to visit when in the area.

Jennette's pier is located in the Whalebone District in Nags Head and is a great family place! Educational outpost for the NC Aquarium, great pier for fishing and crabbing, or for watching local wildlife! They have a beautiful gift shop and the pier is available for private rental as they have a second floor reception area that can accommodate up... More
