Perfect location, what an amazing view

Food is fine, location is excellent, sit outside and absorb the atmosphere, people eating, drinking, fishing, singing and watch the dolphins, fish and sea birds. Food is typical, service is friendly.

Where do I begin? This place has it all, from scenery, great food, live bands, and great staff. While you wait to be seated, there is an outside bar for you to pass the time, not to mention all the people fishing. This is a good spot for Dolphin sightings as well. We got to see a dolphin up close... More

On our first evening in AMI, we walked along to the pier to just have a look around. Seeing a free table, we decided to have dinner. To be perfectly honest, my expectations were not high, being on a pier, but the food was really excellent. My wife had Grouper, and I had crab, and both were superb. Kids enjoyed... More

The views are great from the restaurant and the food is excellent. It may not be glamorous but it has a good vibe and lots of character. There is also a child's menu that is fantastic value. A few members of staff remember us coming back year after year and are always really friendly.

We had some great service but we were very disappointed with the food. We had tried to come here the day before but they were closed so we went to the much smaller pier restaurant down the shore and we should have stopped there again because the prices at City pier were allot higher and the food didn't compare.

Thought we would check this place out for lunch. Ordered the special, blackened scallop tacos and my husband ordered the grouper bites. The grouper bites were OK. The tacos were not good. First of all who serves rice with tacos and who melts a slice of American cheese on the tortilla before filling the taco. The scallops were not blackened... More

Always a stop on our vacations in Florida. Saw a manatee, ate lunch and watched the fishermen. Also I believe the beer at the bar is pretty cheap.

Shared crab cakes and onion rings for starter; mahi mahi, blackened shrimps, baked flounder and seared tuna for mains. All delicious. Great service plus a lightning display over Bradenton. Fisherman surrounded us on the pier. Happy to recommend this restaurant.

We chose the city pier to spend our 20th wedding anniversary - they don't take reservations so we turned up early. The guy on 'meet and greet' was responsive but hardly welcoming, however we were seated reasonably quickly (Sunday night and they were hardly busy). Our server introduced herself and took or drinks order which was brought to the table... More

We've visited before and the shrimp is fantastic. This time we ordered grilled grouper and were generally disappointed with the lack of seasoning in that and other dishes. Nice view and great location, though.
