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.

Sunday nite, a small crowd, and the waiters last night before leaving town. He took extra special care of us, 4 adults and 1 teen. Really good food, nice view of the Mississippi River at sunset. A very pleasant evening.

Great sunset and river views, great food - everything was delicious. Prices very reasonable. Waitress Katy was very attentive and didn't let our drinks go dry even once (my pet peeve).

We happened upon this restaurant while looking for another. So glad that we did. There was a beautiful view of the river. The building is old. The windows weren't particularly clean (cob-webby). I'm writing about the meal. I had salmon, risotto and asparagus. It was really the best meal that we had as we traveled along the Great River Road.... More
