I went to pier 36 for the first time and there steaks are I would say the best in the country. Very well cooked to suit your needs and you get your side orders included. Also if you don't feel like a big desert you can choose from about a dozen small ones. And also great staff and super service?... More

I can't praise Pier 36 highly enough! We visited today for lunch and the sea food was outstanding. We shared the squid with chilli jam and then opted for scampi for main. Every dish was superb, the ingredients of the best quality and so fresh. As it was a lovely day we opted to sit outside and our waiter could... More
