Beautiful view

Visited with my family for a quick meal before returning home. Not a fancy restaurant, very laid back and casual. Outside you have beautiful views of the mini harbor/boats etc - tables/silverware very basic. Had the lobster bisque which was very good, followed by the shrimp & scallop Diablo pasta... read more

Last year I had nothing but great reviews about Sunset Pier, in fact, it was my favorite restaurant in Sea Isle City. Well after visiting 3 times this year with this last visit being the worst, I have to say that the restaurant has slipped in service and quality of food. I ordered the mussels appetizer as one of my... More

The food is adequate. The service is clearly indicative of exploitation of the lack of alternatives, starting with the refusal to accept credit cards. Our server was relatively inattentive, and projected the impression that she had far more important things to do than deal with us.

I usually use tripadvisor to choose restaurants while on vacation. We arrived at 6:00 on on a Sunday. The table was sticky, silverware was dirty and the restrooms were filthy with no tissue. They were "all out" of lobster tail, the chicken marsala had canned mushrooms, and the "4 small shrimp" scampi had plain pasta that tasted as though it... More

I love the sunset pier restaurant because of the affordable food and the wonderful atmosphere. I have been here for breakfast and lunch but I have never samples their dinner entrees. Sitting out on the pier is lovely on a summer day. There is also inside seating available. The food is good and offers a basic menu- eggs, pancakes,burgers, sandwiches.... More

We met a group of friends here for a sunset dinner last week. This is a byob. Our server was very accommodating with opening wine and providing glasses. We all ordered different dinners and sides, everyone was very happy with the way the food looked and tasted. I had a crab cake with a side of green beans. Both were... More

One of the best breakfast places around...good food great views of the bay & boats when you dine on the dock. Oh, and the servers are all on top of everything. Worth the wait to get a table on the pier.
