I visit this pier every time I'm in the area. It provides a beautiful view of the Atlantic on the way out & a beautiful view of the Garden City skyline on the way back. There are always interesting sights along the way from fishermen catching fish to novices pulling in skates or stone crabs. Always a pleasure to walk... More

A beautiful view of the Atlantic! Umbrella covered fishing from the pier. Area around the Pier is filled with places to visit, restaurants, shops, arcades, and fun activities.

Do not order an alcoholic beverage from either bar at the pier.....not worth the money. No taste to any of the drinks...very bland and not nearly strong enough....bartenders acted like we were a burden to order a drink on the first bar. The second bartender was more friendly.....ill just order a coke next time....

It is a little weird that you have to go through a bar to get to the pier. We went up the stairs and through the bar anyway to be able to walk along the pier to see the what else was there and be able to see the places along the beach and watch the fireworks. If you are... More

My kids loved this pier. There were shops and restaurants, an arcade, some amusement rides. This is much smaller than Myrtle but also much more reasonable in price. We really enjoyed walking here at night.

Great place to visit. We go every year just to walk out on the pier. Great fishing, and the bar and arcade are great as well.

I wish I could rate the pier differently for the day and night times. When revisited during the day, the arcade was fun and there was a nice family working the snack bar. The guy that was working the fishing counter was rude as can be. The pier was quiet and peaceful! At night it was scary!!! There were cops... More

You start by walking through the arcadeand you always have a friendly competition of skeeball. When you finish there you continue outside to the bar where there is always music playing by a DJ,who keeps things lively. you can't rent tackle to go fishing off the pier and you usually hook into something. There is a bar at the end... More

There is a small restaurant located on the pier. The food a very basic but the outdoor seating has a wonderful view. All along the pier there is small benches with umbrellas for people to fish from. I was surprised to see the umbrellas set up just for fisherman. This is great it gives some shade from the midday sun... More
