Funky bar with great drinks and well priced food

We decided to stop in for a cocktail at The Pier in the midst of trying to find a reasonably priced restaurant in Port Macquaire (not all that easy). The bar had a great cocktail menu, as well as a big range of beers. Whilst enjoying the first cocktail we decided to eat there - both of us having... read more

Seating is eclectic , with high chairs and benches..but also tables & chairs on the boardwalk... We were pleased to climb a few stairs on to a small area within ,( a sort of mezanine area )...It was a rather romantic little spot... More

Met up with some friends one of whom was playing in a Jazz Funk Band, obviously a meeting point particularly for the younger element, buzzing atmosphere, very good food and service, worth a visit.

The food was good and reasonably priced. It doesn't really have a water view as you would expect from the name.

We had lunch and dinner here during a recent trip to Port Macquarie and can't understand the other reviews on here. Admittedly we only had coffee and soft drinks but we thought it was very reasonably priced. The food was absolutely amazing (see pics) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The open mic was a bit loud (and... More

Have been here a couple of times due to friends wanting to go. Has a nice atmosphere and live music is usually good but the beer prices are ridiculous. $12 a beer - seriously outrageous when you have no water views and getting nothing special in return. I am happy to pay this price if I am getting a great... More

Have been a few times recently. Atmosphere is good and live bands always add to the night. Grape and petal food next door is also good. Biggest issue is the price of drinks, It just spoils the night. I know its pushing a different market but you might as well go to Sydney and pay less at better bars. Unfortunatley... More
