“Blew in for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Having walked down the pier and nearly blown away we decided to have late lunch. The shrimp and fries were great. Service was good. Would definitely go back.

“Casual, scenic dining on Historic City Pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We love the view you get while dining at the Historic City Pier Restaurant. And as a bonus, the food is really good! Friendly service. A must stop during your AMI vacation.

“Worst food ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Fishy fish. Fries all stuck together. Crabless crabcakes. Worst I have ever had. I didn't even taste a hint of crab. Probably in the makings of these cakes they had a crab crawl through it for crab flavoring. No way was any crab in this recipe. Tasted freezer burnt. The ceiling has some kind of insulation that is dirty and peeling off. Looks like it could fall into the food. Service was good so I can't knock them there. When leaving the pier I wanted to tell the tourist to save themselves and turn around and go to any other place to eat then here.

“Stopped in for some appetizers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The view was great but the food just so, so. We had peel and eat shrimp that were okay. Some other forgettable fried appetizer.

“What a fun place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We went on a cold windy day. What a great walk out to the pier and back.
We had fish and chips and Flounder and chips. I think for their fish dinner they should have cod instead of Pollack, but it was good. Both fish really taste the same to me, the fries were seasoned and tasty.
The other meals were quite pricey.
The waitresses were very friendly.
Beautiful view and lots of fishermen around the outside.
I can't wait to go back on a nice day.
