Restaurant week

Here, in upstate NY, when they do Restaurant week, it is priced by the year -- as in 2015, the 3 course meals would be $20.15...not in RI -- $35.00 for a 3 course meal. Oh well, we are here and it's time to eat. They guys had their standard beers, and we had our Riesling wine. Toast to Friday... read more

The service was fast, friendly and atmosphere absolutely fantastic with great music by a group called Zan Ricky. Highly recommend the pier for dinner anytime and in the summertime enjoy their...

No one wanted to cook the night before Thanksgiving so we chose to go to the Pier. It was a little quiet that night there but the food and the service was wonderful. There were 7 of us and we almost all got a different dish. We started with some Clam Cakes and Calamari. Then picked our main courses. Grilled... More

We were unsure about this restaurant because it's a bit out of of the way, but learned it's much worth the walk. They offer a great winter special: dinner for two with a bottle of wine for $40.00. My husband had the rib eye and I the chicken parmesan along with a bottle of a Woodbridge white chardonnay. Excellent!

We stumbled upon The Pier for Thanksgiving and what a great experience. A good amount of options and quantity - very tasty. Wonderfully handicap accessible. At $19.00 the price was perfect. The harbor view was superb however what made this experience most memorable was the staff's kindness. Their warm, affable and accommodating client service made us feel instantly at home.... More

Our friends were showing us around Newport and as it was a nice sunny October day they suggested we walk here- only 200 yards away- and enjoy the harbour views. Waitress was good with advice, food was quite fine and beer was cold. A really pleasant spot on a good day.

Went after the lunch time crowd was done. Was seated by the window. Had an excellent server who was very attentive. The view itself was spectacular, looking out at 3 decker yachts is not a bad thing and dreaming. Ordered the Fish and Chips and by far the best I have ever, ever had. Huge portion and fish was so...
