Good drinks, lunch counter with the usual fare, reasonably priced. Arcade for the littles and bathrooms between arcade and gift shop. The pier is long with frozen Italian ice vendors and big roomy chairs lined up all the way to the end where there is another bar. Across the street is a 24 hour diner, more gift shops, some bars...

It's a fairly long pier and you can see for miles in either direction but it's a bit splintery so don't think you're going barefoot. There are fishing stations and seats along either side as well. I mean it's a pier, what else can you really say about it?!

We had a pretty good day of fishing but it did take the locals a long while...most of the morning/afternoon to warm up to us...it was a rainy day but we still caught a cooler full of whiting. The second day we went back, a new set of locals to deal with...didn't stay as long...but still caught enough fish to... More

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

Been going here since I was a kid. I now have kids of my own and it is still the same as when I was young. On the pier is plenty of arcade fun, fishing, kareoke, and dancing for all ages. It is definitely one of my favorite places of all time! And Nathan's hotdogs right across the street puts... 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
