Fun & Fascinating !! You can fish, they'll cook 'em or sit in the pier and order, great food, music all while the waves crash underneath, very unique, peaceful experience. Went at lunch and evening too.

We have gone here for breakfast for the past five years on the day we leave to go home. This is some Great down home cooking. It is a great little place for a really good meal. Prices reasonable.

Good for what it is, a small place with a simple menu and a lot of fried food. My friend said her crablegs were cooked perfectly. The shrimp scampi special was plentiful with shrimp. Me being a nonseafood person, had a burger which was good. I was afraid to get a salad (it didn't seem like a salad type of... More

For the past thirty years we have been having breakfast and sometimes a rare lunch or dinner at the Pier. This time the breakfast was okay.One never knows how good it will be depending on a long line of revoving door cooks. The atmosphere is great and the views are wonderful and that never changes. Once there was a soulful... More

Great fish sandwich. Wine not so good. Pier seating, so nice outdoorsy atmosphere with Ocean Views! Very casual.

Go for breakfast. Order the pancakes, with or without blueberries / pecans. They are amazing. Ask for a window seat overlooking the beach and pier. The seat is worth the wait if none are available. We went back for dinner to sit outside and listen to the surf and smell the salt air. Our shrimp and oysters were great. It... More

Can't beat the view. And the shrimp happy hour deal is the best in town. A lot of seasoning on the shrimp, but still good. Interesting crowd - we were there for happy hour (4-6:30 or so) on Labor Day weekend. We were some of the youngest people there (and we're not that young!). So maybe this was a hangout... More

The pier location was great with nice outdoor seating, the food was quite good, and the drink menu was also good (though why so many martinis on the beach I'll never know). The problem both times we went was the service. The first time the wife and I wanted a quick drink and we got one. It took us no... More
