I take the 75 km, 75 minute door-to-door drive to Geelong approx once every 2 years. This time it was a business appointment. Other times it is for leisure. But in the last 20 years or so I have never missed the opportunity to have lunch at Fishermen's Pier when in Geelong. Creature of habit? Yes. But why try any... More

Food is overpriced and not the best. Great view of the bay. Menu primarily basic seafood, not that well cooked. Location great but parking can be a problem. Walk. Buy fresh seafood and cook it yourself. Staff good but I felt tipping expected

Came in for Saturday dinner, place was full. Service was OK, tables fairly close together. Had the local Apollo Bay lobster and was disappointed - expected fresh and jumping off plate, but it was a bit dry and not as good as it sounded in print. Others were happy with steak, calamari. May have just been an old, tired lobster... More

Went here and hubby wanted the seafood platter for two. Not what he was used to so I ate a lot more than i intended. Rainbow trout whole was different. Service was good. Air con was quite cold and there were bits of dried food on the plates and cutlery. The still water tasted weird too. Otherwise it was nice... More

We frequent Fishermen's Pier regularly and have always found the food extremely consistent - and very, very good. The service team are well led by the the experienced Jimmy who makes sure nothing goes unnoticed. We visited for the ocassion of our 37th wedding anniversary and ordered the platter with lobster - outstanding! The wines are great value and plenty... More

Me and my husband had a child free night and thought we would spoil ourselves to a nice meal. So glad we chose Fishermans Pier. We chose to have the seafood platter. Oh my goodness worth every penny it was amazing!!!! The lady who was serving our table was so nice and made our experience even better.

A stunning view across Corio Bay which I think this restaurant uses to justify it's high prices. Unfortunately, for the staff, the night we were here they were short staffed and there were only 2 waiting staff who were run off their feet. Possibly because of that some things you would expect in an upmarket restaurant were overlooked. We didn't... More
