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.

We went here twice for fishing. Caught a few. The pier was nice and bathrooms were clean. Just watch the birds. They attacked and scratched my back several times. They need to poison them in my opinion.. Lol but other than that it was nice..

My family and I truly enjoyed our experience at the Pier at Garden City Beach. Our overall experience in South Carolina was outstanding. The beach was very clean. The people were friendly and the location was great for family. It was worth the 14 hour trip from Pennsylvania.

Remember it is a Pier - people fish off it & there are birds there - not super clean not super dirty - it is a fishing pier - not a pier that is at the lake! A great place to take kids - they can see the people clean fish after catching them - throw the scraps to the... More
