“great view, horrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Went to the Beach Pierside Grill for dinner tonight and was terribly disappointed. We went for the view, eating outside is a novelty where we come from. The view was amazing. Unfortunately, the hostess didn't let us know that outdoor seating was also the smoking section, so we had to cintend wit a table full of smokers. The food was not good at all, my husband bar3ly ate his meal. The onion rings tasted so greasy I got sick to my stomach. Wouldn't recommend this place at all.
He view doesn't make up for the awful food.

“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

And the food is actually pretty good. Try the conch appetizer! The rum drinks actually have rum in them, too.

“Great location, good food, decent prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Had lunch here many times. Family friendly during the day, not sure about evening times. Prices are reasonable, food is good. Great views of the Gulf and fishing pier if you eat outside. Typically some type of entertainer (live music) on the patio doing their thing. Only downside for us was the birds tend to pester you while you eat, and every so often there is someone feeding the birds their french fries or the birds help themselves to your food while you aren't looking. Family of four was about $55-60 w/ tip. We will go back.

“Nice place, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

We ate here after going to the beach in the morning, & it was pretty nice. Service was good, but could have been a little faster, & the food was pretty good. Had the crab cake burger which was tasty, & a regular burger which was what it was. Will certainly go back when we are here again.

“Family lunch very good.”

Had lunch here on labor day. Restaurant was not busy, beautiful view. Food was ok. Server was pleasant. Live music was also a nice bonus. Will come back again on future visits.
