Great price on good seafood

I wanted seafood for dinner and expected to pay a pretty price for it. But we stumbled across Pier 61 and decided to give it a try. It isn't much to look at from the outside, and inside was not particularly trendy. But the food was very good, and we will eat there again if we are in the area.

October 14, 2015. We meet our daughters and their families for a family get together. We were very pleased with the server. He was very friendly and efficient. The food was very well prepared and we were very pleased with the results.

We've visited Pier 61 from it's beginnings long ago in Rosenberg, and the food has only improved (not that it needed improvement!). Chef Vincent prepares consistently delicious entrees from the very freshest ingredients. No matter the time of day you visit, you can count on quality, consistent food, courteous service and you won't be disappointed! The fried catfish is excellent... More

A great place for fish in the area. I can recommend it highly. come early because it's always busy. The waitress was attentive and even though we had a group of seven, we were seated in a reasonable amount of time. Good portions, well prepared. It's as good as all the reviews you read. Great decor too.

Sept. 2014-The value was ok, the service was good, not excellent. I had Redfish, smaller portion and a little over done but tasted fresh, served with nice veggies. I added blackened shrimp, the entire portion didn't over fill me. NOW, the craw fish étouffée was something else, tasty but definitely not traditional Cajun. In French, the word étouffée literally means... More

Seen many times driving past. Had planned for Pitchfork Steakhouse - wonder its closed. So tried Pier 61. Food was good, and sufficient, served hot. Prices reasonable. Tuesday evening not many customers.

Not much of a selection on their menu but the quality and taste of the food is great. The service was good, they are not very busy so waiters are available.

I have eaten here many times and highly recommend the "Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Shrimp" - truly awesome. Drinks are reasonably good but the food is the star attraction.

I was really disappointed with the service on 3/1/2013. When my husband and I came in we were told it's a 10 minutes wait and then 3 groups came in after us and they were also told a 10 minutes wait. That should have been my cue to leave. So after about 15 minutes or so of waiting we were... More
