MY FAVORITE! I eat here every single time that I come to the island. I always get the same thing as well, which are baja shrimp tacos, blackened, on corn tortillas. They are delicious.

From the moment you arrive, you can see the docked fishing boats, the sea birds perched all around. Then you enter and you can smell the aroma of seafood. The staff was warm and very helpful in menu, drink selections and seating us with a wonderful view of the bay. We could see the dolphin watch boats in the bay.... More

Being at the beach there are plenty of places to eat sea food and we ended up at pier 19. The view was awesome and service was pretty good. We started our meal off with hush puppies and they were delicious. Then went ahead and ordered the coconut shrimp and the king crab Cajun platter. The coconut shrimp was a... More

We brought our family here for their first trip to the island........we weren't disappointed. We never are. The dressed beers are so refreshing on a hot afternoon and the shrimp and oysters on the half shell are always great!!!

I had oysters on a half shell and the small sampler platter of scallops, shrimp,and fish! I couldn't help myself. It was fresh and delicious. You can eat inside or outside and then take a walk down the pier, their is a little bar at the very end. It's family friendly, large portions, and extremely friendly staff.

We all are feeling the cost of rising prices and cost of business. As expenses rise so do operating costs and all are passed along to consumers. We are still are reasonably priced business for family dining and provide fresh quality food and service. More

Tired and hungry we stopped at Pier 19 for a quick meal. We enjoy the nachos with beef and along with their margaritas we were pleased with our decision to eat there. A great place to get the feel of being on the water and seeing a dolphin once in awhile.
