Right on the water, great location with a view of the Ferris wheel. Aimee was a friendly bartender that made some good suggestions. Warm crab dip was good but don't let it get cold. It gets really thick. Lobster bisque was great with lots of lobster.

I dined here on a Tuesday night with a group of 15 colleagues. I understand that serving a party of that size is not easy. Our server did an admirable job taking care of us. It did take 2+ hours from start to finish, that was a bit long. The crab bruschetta was very good as a starter. The calamari... More

We ate at the Pier House on a Saturday evening. We planned it to be there to watch the beautiful sunset and were not disappointed. A glorious view of the sun going down over the Potomac River! Try to get a table where you can see it. The staff were very friendly and professional and the food was excellent. My... More

We have been here several times because the other options in the area were poor or also average. It smacks of a chain restaurant. It is just too bad because in either Alexandria or DC (which is a $30 Taxi ride) there is an abundance of locally owned unique places to enjoy a special meal.

Enjoyed a beautiful Sunday lunch sitting out on their patio! The shrimp and grits were excellent and my husband enjoyed his omelet. Our waiter was very pleasant and helpful! The view of the Harbor was so nice and we enjoyed people watching, too! We were right next to the Carousel and watched folks on kayaks enjoying the pretty day, too!... More

Outdoor seating is a must if the weather permits. Right on the river and great people watching. The drinks were great and the food was delicious. Everything was reasonable priced as well. Definitely recommend the buffalo chicken wantons!! Delicious. We tried the wings, burgers, calamari (so so), crab cakes. Great variety on menu. Service was friendly, fast and great!

During my week in Maryland I had crab cakes at 3 different restaurants on the harbor. Pier House was hands down the best. I went back there on another night for the lobster special. Great value! Service was excellent too. I enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the festivities on the plaza during dinner.

The ambience - huge restaurant with tables spread out so it did not feel as though you were sharing with other diners. Not too bright, but not dingy either. Very warm and inviting. Service - fantastic. Food - delicious! I had a whole lobster for $25 and yes it was delicious. No one (that worked there) ever walked past our... More

We went based on a recommendation. The food taste, portions, and price weren't that good. It left a lot to be desired. The outdoor seating was nice, on a very pleasant day. The inside seating was nice. The service was ok.

I really liked the bar and the She Crab Dip-to die for! A bit noisy but lots of with a view of the River. The restaurant is medium priced with very large portions. I enjoyed assorted 'small plates' with friends sitting at the bar - a fun time!
