The Pier is a restaurant that I had forgotten about and was reminded when I saw it while out for a morning run & happy about that. Hadn't been in about 15 years but I remember it having very good food with a fantastic view from it's location on the harbor. Well the food and view is still fantastic and... More

I didn't want to leave The Pier once I discovered it. It's true, it was the ONLY place I could find to park on an absolutely perfect late summer day, but they let me keep my car there the whole afternoon! And I only ordered a salad. I asked the waiter if I should get a half or a whole,... More

The outside bar is a great place to chill and enjoy the sunset and the ambiance of Newport. The entertainment is good and the crowd was laid back and fun.the bartenders were handsome and charming and even with a large crowd, no one waited to order drinks or food. But the best part of my birthday besides spending it with... More

A friend of mine visited The Pier Restaurant during Newport Restaurant week. I find this a great time to explore restaurants I haven't yet frequented. Our appetizers (stuffed mushrooms and Cesar salad) were excellent. The entrees were presented beautifully and were mostly good (braised short ribs over mashed potatoes and for my friend petite sirloin with asparagus, lobster, Bearnaise sauce... More

Try the fish and chips. The accompanying coleslaw is outstanding and they have amazing in house tartar sauce. A stunning view of the harbour accents the dining experience

We accompanied our humans to The Pier for a sunny lunch on the deck. The staff were very accommodating and brought us bowls of water. Our humans had the lobster bisque and some seafood dishes which they appeared to enjoy. We each got a small taste of the lobster bisque which had generous amounts of cream and butter. Yum!

In Newport, restaurants are aplenty. The Pier, on Howard Wharf, is one to include while in the seaport city. On a beautiful evening, we were seated on the open patio adjoining the pier. Fresh air, boats coming and going, and a sunset to die for set the stage for a fabulous meal. Choosing seafood dishes, they were prepared perfectly, with... More

Love the pier! I'm taking advantage of their fabulous deck before this cold winter ahead of us Rhodies!!! I had Dwayne, as my server; he was decent, needs to be more attentive for sure. Still gave at least 21%. I had a dozen littlenecks; delicious, but you can't mess those up . I have had fish tacos, previously; delicious !... More
