I wanted to like Pier 77 more than I did. It is certainly good, is a local standby and has a atmospheric location in Cape Porpoise. The dining room is comfortable, with a nice decor and water views. On the night we dined I thought the service was rather slow and there was a weird "juggling" of our table at... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant, located on the water in quaint Cape Porpoise. From start to finish, the staff were great. The dining room is spacious, has water views and is nicely decorated. There was even someone playing a baby grand. I enjoyed my mixed seafood grill, which had a piece of salmon, shrimp and scallops in... More

We had a 5.30pm reservation and while we could not snag a coveted window table, we were still able to enjoy a glorious sunset. Our waiter was prompt and efficient. The piano music was an added bonus. My seafood grill, two scallops, two shrimp and a sizeable piece of salmon grilled to perfection and served over mashed potatoes with the... More

Three years ago we ate at Pier 77 and had a wonderful experience; not so fortunate this time. The restaurant was packed for our 7:30 reservation and very noisy. We were promptly seated, handed a wine list and asked if we wanted a drink, bread and water all within 15 seconds. We requested a few minutes to go over the... More

We stopped in for lunch to get some chowder. We chose this place because we heard there was a nice view. I definitely recommend asking for window seats. The lunch menu is short but has a nice variety. We only wanted chowder but it was very good. Service was good as well.

check my reviews-I am not lavish in my praise but I am also not stingy. This place is lucky to get an average from me. My husband and I called for a reservation and couldn't get in until 8:30. We waited patiently in the receiving area-the tiny bar was completely filled. We were there a few minutes early and while... More

We were a party of four with reservations, we were seated quickly which was nice, a table by the water...nice... , then oops , the hostess informs us that we were seated at the wrong table. We had draped our napkins, drank the water, had to pack up & were moved to a table with NO view. Of note, when... More

We drove to Cape Porpoise trying to find a restaurant that our friends had dinner 10 years ago and we ended up to the Cape Porpoise Harbor. We were at lunch time and the public parking was totally packed. We found a spot in front of the Pier 77 and this is why we choose that restaurant instead of the... More

Pier 77 shares a kitchen and a menu with The Ramp downstairs, but it accepts reservations while The Ramp does not. That's important in this vacation spot in season. Of course, the menu here overlooking Cape Porpoise Harbor leans toward seafood, and deals with it well. The mussels a la Provençal that I had for lunch were perfect, as was... More

Amazing food with beautiful views. This is not your typical touristy restaurant. This is a local gem. It's upscale yet not pretentious. If you are a foodie, this is a place worth checking out. Great wine list. The seafood stew was my favorite. It was a perfectly cooked bouillabaisse with a hint of saffron. Best part was dipping toasted garlic... More
