My husband and I decided to go for lunch in Donaghadee and went to Pier 36. The staff are very friendly and the service is good. There was a large selection of things available on the lunch menu at a range of prices and the food was good. I had the winter warm salad which had a generous amount of... More

I've been here often and find it usually good, but was disappointed at the recent price rises for smaller portions. The Steak Deal is up a Fiver and the Brie starter portion has halved, so a "double whammy" for them. That said, there's always a good atmosphere and the staff are great, but value for money is now less so... More

First course - Queenies, overdone and tough. Lots of them though! - Prawn cocktail - absolutely ok Mains - Pork Belly - not bad, but the three cold purple broccoli stems on top of it looked a bit lost and the mash had been heated up. - Chicken, of some sort, absolutely overwhelmed by batter - described by my partner...

We visit Pier 36 as often as we can. It's our local, go to pub/restaurant and you can always be sure of a lovely meal. We mostly go for dinner, however it is lovely to pop in for coffee and breakfast after a walk down the harbour. The atmosphere is welcoming and warm with the log fire by the bar... More

Called in for lunch on spec after a 4 mile wintery trek around the coast and town in late January. Marvellous offer of two courses for £11 if over 65. Sadly no one asked for ID, but the food was excellent and the service complete with banter brilliant.

Pier 36 is a family owned restaurant. We had a party of six out for a family evening together. The food was very good and the service also was good with a friendly atmosphere and you are made to feel welcome. We all had different meals and no one could complain about the food. The night was a great success... More
