This place was right opposite Rib Fest, advertising $4 beers. Stopped in for a couple of pints. My wheat beer was fine but my wife's Coors light tasted like water. Others said the same. Tried to complain but the owner didn't care. I don't think they are experienced with pubs or draft beer. Food didn't look much better and restaurant... More

The location is awesome. With a patio overlooking the water downtown Burlington. But it is lacking in any type Of atmosphere whatsoever. It could be so great. The next Door restaurants patio was packed as usual and this place was empty so We though why not have a couple of drinks and some appetizers here.... Well Service was ok... But... More

We came because our usual breakfast spot, Pane Fresco, was closed and The Pier has a great location. However, we left feeling let down though the waitress was pleasant. The atmosphere is dark and empty - a strange mix of lime green walls and tacky 1980's style dining chairs. They have a large menu, but I was unhappy with the... More

Love their eggs Benedict with the turkey on top. Generous portions and helpful service. Friendly staff. Overlooking the lake, also outside seating ( weather permitting) and good for smokers like me

We have given this restaurant a few chances and every time we are left wondering how this place is still in business. The service is horrible & the food is even worse.. How does someone manage to screw up breakfast?!?! Do not waste your money here- Burlington has a ton of quality eateries that far exceed this embarrassing excuse for... More

I recently ate at this restaurant with my family. We were seated quickly enough, however our server seemed very flustered in her greeting. She promptly asked for our orders before realizing she never brought us menus. We asked for drinks, simply coffee and orange juice but these never showed up. We ordered our food, a sandwich and 3 wraps along... More

I had an incident here around a year and a bit ago and I still hold a grudge. Went here for breakfast one morning, paid first then got my food. It was a little overpriced but you're paying for the location so wasn't a big deal and I tipped well. After finishing my OJ and breakfast I was still thirsty... More

Went there for breakfast this morning. There were only three tables with people including ours. Took 50 minutes for food to arrive. After 25 minutes, our server asked us for our order again - she clearly never entered it, then couldn't remember what our order was. Took 15 minutes for OJ to arrive. When our order did arrive, toast was... More
