Outstanding Lunch Spot

We were a party of 6 looking for a nice lunch with a great view and found it in spades at Pier 77. The lunch menu was not overwhelming but lots of good selections, plus lunch specials of soup and salad, I had the seafood stew and it was marvelous. Wife had a delicious spinach salad and fish and... read more

Ordered the burger on the lunch menu, asked to be cooked medium, I took a bite and it was extremely rare. The server said she would have a new burger made, and took it away, the kitchen scraped off the onions and ketchup off and put the same burger on the grill. Was brought out the same burger with a...

Great location and views are worth a visit of Porpoise harbour, especially at sunset. The menu at Pier 77 is strangely unfocused (they have a bit of everything from meatballs pasta to lamb rack instead of only focussing on seafood), not surprisingly the quality of the food was therefore average, and the service as well. The location deserves a detour,... More

We stopped in for a quick bite but opted to hang at the bar. It is more upscale than other with a limited menu. I did have a Tuscan lima bean soup that was delicious. No outdoor seating though. Seemed more for country club types.

We booked this restaurant following a memorable meal here a year ago. We were assigned a perfect corner table with windows on two sides to enjoy the superb views over this working harbour in the perfect late evening light. Unfortunately the food was just not as good as I remember; my Tete's Clam Chowder was fine as was the pan... More

A few years ago, I wrote a review about Pier 77 raving about the food and ranting about the service. I am pleased to say that the issue has been resolved. We visited the restaurant twice this year and the service was excellent both times. Waitstaff was attentive and efficient...could not have been more pleased. The food and atmosphere continue...

We have been coming here for years and we always enjoy it. They have a great menu so if you are not in the mood for sea food there are plenty of other choices. The service is top notch and always friendly. As an extra the scenic views are beautiful. Finally, they take reservations and parking is always available. A... More

The food here is quite good, although vegetarian options are limited. The setting and views are gorgeous! Ask for a table by a window.

Located right on the waterside at the end of the road, the views from table are lovely. You could spend hours watching the tide. However we were there for the food, which was excellent. This is a quality restaurant, great food and proficient servers. What more can you ask for?
