Beautiful view of the Mississippi

The staff was excellent. Attentive, efficient and very friendly. The food would qualify as very good. Hence the rating. The view of the river was outstanding. We were lucky to be there when they were lighting the bridge. Very pretty to see after dinner.

Sitting on pylons over the Mississippi River, The Pier offers vies of the river and the bay. A wide selection of entrees provides many choices. We're partial to the salmon, meat loaf and pork.

We had lunch at The Pier and enjoyed the views of the bridges. Food was good and so was the service.

I was super excited to visit The Pier. Located right along the Mississippi River with views that define Quincy, this restaurant has the advantage over most. We arrived to a filthy entrance that hadn't seen even a light cleaning in months, to an underwhelming eating area that needs a good cleaning and a bit of an update. We were greeted... More

Hay thanks for the review yep the windows are a problem as stated in multiple reviews in the past, no feasible way to clean them really. Was a design problem we inherited the building it built with out a cat walk so you have to hang from a sling attached to a system used for barn doors. I tried it... More

So this place is located on a pier that protrudes into the Mississippi River so you get a really good view up and down the river as barges, pleasure boats and jet skis go by. There is a circle of windows with views at most tables. The center of the dining room is elevated so you can still see the... More

We had dinner there for my birthday! Very nice! The food was excellent! The service was very very good. The view was nice. Every table is a window seat. My toddler fell asleep before we got there and slept through the whole meal. They boxed up his food and the manager personally came out and talked to us before we... More

Friends in Quincy IL invited us to dinner at The Pier while we were passing through. This is an unusual setting perched on a pier remaining from a old bridge that crossed the Mississippi River, literally hanging over the river. The river view was fantastic and the food was very good too. We started with the Thai Calamari appetizer that... More

A friendly maitre led us to our table with great views of the river. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Food was great at a reasonable price. Worth a second visit for sure.

Went there recently for a business dinner. Their main attraction? Location! Overlooking the river. Problem-you can hardly SEE the river through the dirty windows. The meal was nice, good food, good wine, pleasant server, but just couldn't get past the multitude of spider eggs all over the window. If this place got a manager that cared about the details, it...

Sir Knucklehead Yes the windows are a major problem and we do have a manager who cares the problem was with the construction of the building. They did not build any safe way to clean them. If you noticed there are no cat walk or other device to support someone cleaning them, so you have to hang out over the... More

The big attraction to us was the fact that they make their pasta fresh daily. It is one of the few area restaurants where we can get fresh spinach pasta dishes. Of course the river view is awesome also as the restaurant is built over the Mississippi river.
