bit over rated on the seafood. It was busy and the staff were ok but not what we expected from the reviews here. There are plenty of other places in Cairns to enjoy a meal and we wont be back to this place again. It's a shame because so many people raved about this place. I'd rate it as just... More

Pulled up for lunch on a Monday and was surprised and the relaxed but busy atmosphere. We order burgers and they were great as well as the sweet potato chips were amazing. This, coupled with a great view and an extremely attractive bar staff lead to an enjoyable and relatively cheap lunch.

Our tour guide told us about this place and we were so glad he did! The happy hour deal was awesome ($5 for beer, wine, or one spirit) and sitting out on the deck was awesome. We went three times and made friends with the bouncer - everyone was just so friendly and welcoming!

We always start at the pier bar for happy hour, the atmosphere is great, it's always busy which shows how great it is. Beautiful views over the park and ocean. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I visited The Pier with family during our recent time in Cairns. We'd heard The Pier had recently been remodeled and we were impressed with the trendy-beachy theme. Unfortunately, the positive impression faded quickly. We were there for lunch and none of our meals were anything to write home about. We also found the restaurant to be... More

Fantastic views lagoon & Bay Area of Cairns as well as views of the Boulevard walk along waters edge. Great food, value for money, friendly staff, great place to cool off on a hot day. Short walk to Marina from there as well & attached shopping centre. Great little spot.

I celebrated birthday of my friend in the Pier, Good atmosphere, very lesiure, We ordered fresh oysters, Calamari, and chicken wings. although the dishes were tasteful, we do not expect the dish of Calamari is so expensive, only 4 pieces charged A$13.5.

Went here for a few drinks after arriving in Cairns. The atmosphere was great, and the place was quite charming with a good vibe to it. I had the misfortune of leaving my passport behind which I envisaged as a total disaster given that I was flying back to Ireland five days later and was in Brisbane by the time... More
