Great place with a great atmosphere. At the side of the Shangri-La Hotel, so in a good location too. The drinks are cheap so always busy! Lots of the boat crews use this bar, so you will always find plenty of friendly locals. A really lovely place to go at any time of the day or night.

Brilliant eatery! 12 bucks for a pizza and beer cannot be beat. It is also on the harbour so you can sit on the deck enjoy a beer and pizza that doesn't cost an arm and a leg! The crowd is slightly younger but it created a good vibe. Often with live music it can't be beat. :)

Came to The Pier my first night in Cairns. I was my myself and went outside to a "sharing" table. Everyone was very friendly and I had a great time. My $10 pizza came with a free drink. Nice view of the marina.

The food was superb and 4 local beers in a bucket for £20 was also a deal. We ate there 3 times. One night there was even live music from an Accoutic Guitarist.

The food was very good and the price was fantastic. For $12 I had ribs, chips, a small salad and beer. My wife had Chicken Parmesan, chips, a small salad and a coke. On of the better meals I had in Australia and also one of the cheapest.

This is a great bar and hangout especially if you would like to be able to relax and have a smoke, most places in Cairns do not allow smoking on the premises. Monday to Thursday it is happy hour from 1700 to 1900 pm and drinks are very cheap. This place is a must if you are in Cairns. Great... More
