The Pier is 1/4 mile long, people fishing, families strolling. During the daytime, there is kareoke, and/or a live band by the gift shop. In the evenings, the end of the pier bar opens for those over 21. Live bands, although I am a tad tired of Shaky Legs. This year the pier will be open all night for fishing,... More

Free pier access! Great for fishing or watching others fish. Or just to hang out. It's just a great place to be. For those that like video games & arcades, there is a nice little place at the pier entry. Two great bars - one at the beginning and one at the end. During the on season, there is a... More

Wife and I always try to make it a point to be on the pier when karaoke starts up. Its some of the cheapest and best entertainment around. Now don't get me wrong,99% of the folks singing could not carry a tune in a bag. Although thats part of the fun. There is a bar right there so you can... More

Overall, a good experience. Service was friendly and fast, food was good, prices were reasonable, and the view was fabulous! We live in Garden City and go to the pier often, but had never eaten breakfast in the cafe until today. We walked in the cafe to see two men sitting on stools talking. Turns out the man sitting there... More

First of all the staff here are super friendly. At the tackle shop when I first tried the pier, behind the counter was "about mid 40's, light weight lady". I asked so many questions and all of them got answered in a very courteous manner. This pier has a lot to offer. 1). Arcade for kids and the young at... More

Free to walk. Has a bar and bands at night. Well equipped pier and people who can give you advise about what fish is running and what bait you need. Great arcade.

The pier was nice to walk on and had great views in either direction. We ate at lunch the café which offers grill food like burgers, hotdogs, chicken strips and fries. The food was good but the view was excellent. We went during the day so the bar at the end was closed and there was no live music.
