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.

We appreciate your comments. However sounds like you had too much all fried food. Yes fried food is greasy but nothing out of the ordinary. More

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.

Loved the casual atmosphere, boys could wear their swim trunks & tank tops and fit right in. We sat outside on the pier and enjoyed watching boats in the bay and as the sun set, the breeze was really cool. (You can also sit inside or in bar.) Great seafood, but when menu items say "grilled" it must not be... More

While it was pretty expensive for lunch for a family, it was in a great location. The food was very good and so was the service. We were able to watch the action on the bay including the pirate ship that came right up to the pier. Afterwards, we walked up and down the pier. It looked liked it would... More

We decided to eat at this restaurant on the first night of our visit to SPI because of the location, and we did not regret it. Every seat gives you a view of the bay, and we wanted to see the fireworks while we ate (we were able to see it perfectly from our seat). Our servers name was Alex,... More

My food was so good that I am still dreaming about it! I had crab cake stuffed shrimp and shrimp that was stuffed with cream cheese and a sliver of jalapeño. It was very good.
