This is by far the best food in Alma and the surrounding area. Try pulled pork, brisket, or ribs... smoked on site. The potato pancakes are fantastic. We have enjoyed Pier 4 for 8 years, and have had a great meal every time. The only drawback.... it opens very early but closes at 2:00. Try it. You will be glad... More

We had breakfast here and it was superb. We stuck to the basics but everything just better. Given your choice of meat - go with the ham!!! This is also a smokehouse and the ham was incredible. Somehow the hashbrowns and even the toast/ homemade jams were just great. Don't miss Pier 4. Oh, and then go stand on the... More

The breakfast food was great! The waitstaff was courteous and attentive. The prices are very affordable and the portions were large. On the way out you can purchase some of their homemade seasonings such as Rib Rub. Overall a great value! Thanks, WE WILL BE BACK!!!

My wife wanted to go to an Art Fair around Pepin & Stockholm, WI. We drove up the Wisconsin side of the Mississippi River from Winona to Alma and stopped to dine at the Pier 4 Cafe. This restaurant is right on the edge of the Mississippi River and offers some great views of the Lock & Dam. My wife... More

Went for breakfast the other day and it was outstanding. The omelet I had was a garden variety and it was LOADED with goodness. The service was great and the scenery was fantastic.

We spent a few delightful days on the Great River Road in Wisconsin in October. By far the best breakfast on the trip was at Pier 4. First of all, it's a charming little place, full of small-town atmosphere, with a nice view of the Mississippi and a train track feet away where huge freight trains pass by frequently. Strangely...
