“Fun, Good Food and Scenic view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My mom suggested we eat here. We were not disappointed. From the Bar Tender to the waiter and the entire staff all Positive. And the "view" can't beat it! Look close too as you just might see dolphins playing in the water right outside your your window at your booth. Have time to kill while waiting for your table? Take a walk out on the Pier lots to see and again keep an eye out for the dolphins that play out in the bay!

“Nice place, not so much on the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I at here last week with my wife, and we ordered seafood platters. I was impressed with the blackened shrimp , but everything else was just bland and watery. The other dishes I saw going around looked good, so I may not eliminate Pier 19 yet, but this visit was a bust. The view was cool with boats and dolphins all around the restaurant.

“Stick with seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Great location, out on a pier with water on both sides. My wife loved her blackened grouper. I ordered Mexican, which was not the best idea. Both were specials. Go for lunch and enjoy the view in daylight.

“Favorite Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We eat here almost every Sunday and sometimes Friday night too. Most important thing to say about Pier 19 is the wait staff. We have never had a bad experience. We think they must make this a priority... they are the most friendly staff, so polite and helpful, truly appears they care about service, no unusual these days. Their breakfasts are awesome and the prices are such a great value. They have music on sundays which adds to the fun and you can watch the dolphins! There is nothing negative to say about this place.
