I see a number of people are complaining about the service. I have stopped by Pier 30 many times on my way to my beach house. I have experienced slower service when they are really busy on a nice day but go with the flow. The staff is always friendly and they have a great selection of food at reasonable... More

There's definite GOOD here and definitely BAD here. The good is that only hit here on a weekday afternoon - very slow paced, few people but that allowed us to wander the decks - upper and lower - to our heart's content and play pool in the open air back bar. The bad is this is built on the edges... More

We've been going to Pier 30 since it opened and have noticed that the service and quality of the food has steadily been going down hill. Saturday was the last straw. When we finally received our order of fried pickles (priced at $5.99+tax by the way) it consisted of only TEN quarter-sized pickle slices! Any business should be embarressed to... More

Worst dining experience I've ever "tried" to have. Granted it isn't anything fancy, but basic restaurant functions usually include the following: a server who stops by your table within a few minutes of your seating, busing of prior guests leftover beer bottles and cups etc, taking of a new order and finally delivery of a (hopefully) tasty meal. None of... More

I orderd chicken fried steak not only did it look like crap but it tasted like crap. The drinks had too little alcohol and small pieces of ice that melted too fast. So I ordered a beer and it was warm. Ugh the person running the facebook page is also rude.

HORRIBLE SERVICE I spoke to a couple of people... More

I cannot write review about the food because we waited 25 minutes and could not even get a glass of water. The staff was rude and it was obvious because we were not regulars, we were not wanted. Don't waste your time!

While the beer selection is good for the area, and the food is good, I could not help feeling severely disappointed with the attitude behind the bar. They don't appreciate their visitors very much. :-(
