Really good food, people are really nice, the view of the ocean around sunset, and the pirate ship coming in to shore.

Pier 19 had amazing food. But our waitress was terrible. She could not understand what we were wanting. Then she lost our invoices with the money we had given her in it. If she would have checked us out before running around this would have not been an issue. But I feel like we could have had an awesome time... More

Pretty decent place with more than decent food and service. Families welcome. You can also enjoy a smoke if you sit out on the deck!

Great food, friendly waitstaff and quick service. The pier was also very inviting and had "pirates" available for photos.

The view from the boat was nice, service was good, the food was so greasy My husband and I felt ill that night. Maybe the grease was old? Had fried fish, oysters, shrimp fries and calamari.

Great evening spent here first in the bar for cocktails and then for food. Johnny in the bar mixed us all a great pina colada while Ruis(?) took care of our food. All in a really pleasant relaxing time at the Pier.
