Worth a stop

It is a fun place with energetic and friendly waitstaff. I just had an egg and toast. The toast appeared homemade and was delicious. Very reasonable meal at $2. My husband had ribs with hash browns and cole slaw. The ribs had a good smoked flavor but were slightly tough. Overall it was a good meal.

Second visit to Wabasha MN, and we can't wait to get to Pier 4!! From the melt in your mouth pancakes to the fluffy biscuits, you can't go wrong for breakfast. Hearty portions good friendly service and delicious food. They have a 3lb pancake challenge called the Danimal. If you can eat in 30 min or less, your meal is... More

Love the breakfast every time. The eggs were cooked perfectly. The potato pancakes are wonderful - just like my Aunt used to make. The model train can entertain the kids too.

Service is always friendly and the breakfast is always good. So fun to see the train up top go round when there are little ones in the restaurant.

Wonderful seating- inside and out. Great view of the river and the bottoms. Food very good, service friendly and quaint. Family business. AND FABOULOUS POTATO PANCAKES with any meal! and the Strawberry shortcake to die for.

Can't wait to go back! Food is always great and friendly staff. Pick up some of their smoked salmon if they have it. It's really good!

This place is small but packed full of tables/booths including screen porch seating overlooking Lock and Damn #4, hence the name. They are only open for lunch and dinner,heads up - breakfast served til 1p includes mammoth omelettes featuring toast with the most incredible home made jam I have ever tasted and lots of other down home specials. Great view... More

It's always fun to return to Pier 4 whether for an awesome breakfast or ribs or smoked pork for lunch. Food is always served quickly after ordering and arrives at the table hot. Service is attentive and friendly.

We got ribs to go & the instructions worked like magic. Who knew you should reheat ribs in cling wrap? Moist, meaty, finger licking good and I sooooo wish they were closer to us. Would've liked to eat dinner in the restaurant--right on the water view--but we had too much going on, so we picked up ribs when they opened... More

My family has been frequenting Pier 4 forever. It has not changed since our very first visit . The food, the service, the cozy atmosphere and friendly people have been constant. It is the first place choice for breakfast or any meal. Love dining on the screened-in porch in the Summer.
