The deck has a great lake view and was right next to the lakeside concert series performance. The food was just OK, but reasonably priced. Worth a visit if you can sit outside and don't have to wait.

Had the Whitefish. It was excellent. Wish we had fish like this near home. Ate at the bar. Wait staff very friendly. Loved the Pier Fruit Punch so much I came back later to have another one. Boyfriend had a steak and did not like it, but not much can be expected from a bar steak. He loved the whitefish... More

An excellent place to eat for the budget-conscious. The service was pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful, the food was very tasty, the portions were bountiful, and the prices were very reasonable. I recommend it.

Every year visiting my family in Superior, WI, we make a trip to Bayfield, the town where my mom grew up. We always stop at the Pier Plaza for white fish sandwiches. It never disappoints. The food is always tasty, fresh and very delicious. Their sides are also very good; the sweet potato fries, onion rings and coleslaw.

We got our meal as take out and brought it on the "Evening Grand Tour" with the Apostle Island Cruises. We decided late to do the cruise, and needed our dinner to go. They were great about meeting our request! The chicken caesar salad was delicious, but a little heavy on the dressing. I wish I had asked for the... More

Ate here for lunch, had a whitefish sandwich which was very good. Wife had a cup of soup and a salad which were average. Prices were reasonable, view of the marina was nice, good service, average selection and atmosphere. Not bad but nothing special.

Weekend trip to Bayfield. Had to stop at the Pier Plaza and eat out on the deck overlooking Lake Superior. Super friendly and helpful wait staff. I chose the fish tacos with sweet potato fries, and beverage of choice while enjoying the views of the lake and watching the boats come in and out of the harbor. Lovely stop to... More

We ate here twice in our three day stay, we liked it so much! First went on Thursday, and I ordered the fish and chips----wonderful!! The freshly caught whitefish was delicious and the thick chips tasted hand sliced and fresh. The other members of the family all enjoyed their meals, and we decided to return for the Friday fish fry,... More
