Enjoyable dinner

Visitng our daughter at Quincy University we decided to eat near the river. The view and atomosphere were pleasant. The food was good with a nice variety to choose from. We hope to return sometime before she graduates.

We made reservations four hours before arriving. The view inside is amazing; the bridge, sunset, and water view all right there. The service is very good. The food was flavorful, perfect temperature, and good servings. We ordered lobster mac and cheese for an appetizer. Beer is cheap- $2.75. I figured it'd be over 5.00 a piece. My husband ordered the... More

We went to this restaurant as part of a large group, and being from out of town, had no say in the choice. It is a nice restaurant, though nothing special inside, with great views of the river. The luncheon, however, was delicious, with the group ordering a variety of salads, sandwiches and entrees. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and the... More

My husband and I and two friends were among the hundreds of birders hoping to see the Ivory Gull a few weeks ago. Although we were not successful, we did have an enjoyable time in Quincy and a big part of that was the excellent lunch we enjoyed at The Pier. The staff was very welcoming and almost every table...

It is so much fun to sit right over the Mississippi river. This time of year there are great views of bald eagles. The service is great. The food preparation is exquisite. The menu items are interesting and satisfying. The Sunday brunch buffet is the best for 120 miles in any direction.

I was among 200 birders looking for the Ivory Gull Saturday, Jan 10. The bird had first been spotted from the restaurant several days before. The restaurant's January lunch business has increased manifold over the past week. On Saturday we were told that the normal number of customers on a similar day in January would be 20-30 and that they... More

We had lunch at The Pier recently and were very pleased. I ordered the salmon/asparagus lunch special and it was totally delicious. It was also served with warm bread and creamy risotto which were also superb. We'll definitely be back!

This place has GREAT potential for being a highlight for out-of-towners, BUT the web-filled OUTER windows erases the charm. Food is average, with the salmon with risotto being the exception.
