I would not eat anywhere else!

I came here for my Birthday party and as always it did not fail to disappoint. The food was superb, the best seafood and steaks in the country. The staff could not be more pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend pier 36.

I have ate in Pier 36 a number of times, and I honestly couldn't fault it once. The food has been perfect, service top notch and the atmosphere is relaxing. Live band/singer at the weekends. Made to feel welcome when in Pier.
