Terrific Bloody Mary!

Its been awhile since we ate at the "Pier" but I remember the food was very good and I got a terrific Bloody Mary there. The restaurant was lovely, overlooking the river, it was clean and the staff was friendly. It would be a romantic place for a Valentine couple or they will set you up for... read more

We eat here often! The menu is varied and they offer a couple of daily specials. The view is excellent. The food is fine dining. The staff is friendly and helpful. I love this place.

Lunch was very tasty and service very good. The Pier is right on the Mississippi River. At night, you can see the bridge which is lit up and very pretty. It is a very popular place to go.

Thank you for the kind words and I am glad you enjoyed your visit and more importantly your Bloody Mary. We make our own tomato mix for those with a couple of different "spices" to give it that special finish. We hope to see you again soon and thanks again. More

Party for 4 - two couples having lunch the week of christmas. Good burgers, good salads, good affordable house wines and personable, prompt and professional service. The highlight of this establishment is it is on the water with a good view of the Mississippi as it flows by Quincy.

This place is absolutely amazing. The menu is comprehensive enough to satisfy any palate, and the staff is very accommodating. The food was better than delicious, and our server (Jake) was fantastic! I am thoroughly impressed and will certainly be back. In the evening, the lights from the bridge are visible from that side of the building.

multiple visits... The Pier rates high on Quincy's best restaurants list. The location and the views it offers while you dine make it a must do eatery if you're in town for a visit. For the locals, the views are something that keeps it high on most everyone's "love to eat there" list. The restaurant offers 270 degree viewing of... More

Dining at The Pier has always been a highlight! When my husband was at the Veterans Home in Quincy we dined there at least once a week and sometimes twice a week for lunch, dinner or Sunday Brunch.

Why cook and do dishes? Going out to eat on Thanksgiving with family. Excellent and quickly made omelets with sausage and bacon, with upscale selections, like prime rib and salmon, with traditional items like turkey and stuffing. Wonderful desserts, such as pumpkin pie, bread pudding, and apple pie with caramel sauce. Unfortunately, no pecan pie. However, with that exception, everything... More

the weather was terrible and we had already eaten at one of the places out by the highway. But, when we stumbled on the Pier we knew we had to check it out. Because the weather was so bad, the place was deserted but we were still welcomed warmly, even after we shared that we were really only stopping to... More
