My husband & I visited Montego Bay to celebrate our birthdays. Everything I read said that Pier 1 was the hot party spot in MoBay on Friday night. Since my birthday was on a Friday during our trip, I chose Pier 1 for dinner and party to make things simple. I also hoped that it would guarantee an awesome birthday... More

Hello, Our customers usually enjoy the ambiance, food and drinks here. We regret that this wasn't so for you; for that, we do apologize. We have spoken to the Manager on duty, as well as Linton, your server, on the matter of him disappearing from your table for over 20 minutes. Unfortunately, our POS system was down for a while,...

While the food is average the atmosphere is what makes this place. Located on the bay the view at night and the waves on the rocks made for a great back drop. Drinks are good and the prices were much lower than other places visited in area. My servers were attentive even when the crowd picked up. Music was a... More

Went to Pier One for my husband's birthday ... which for a local Jamaican...it's a big deal! We walked in and were seated promptly. The waiter came over to take our order and we ordered 3 appetizers and two blended juice drinks from the bar, which during that time another waiter came over and asked our waiter something and he...

I enjoyed Pier 1 so much on the Wednesday that I was back on the Friday! Great fun - great drinks - just be careful the staff don't try and over charge you!

Food is good, authentic. Atmosphere is nice. Service is so-so. Pay in USD and get a 100/1 exchange rate. Pay by credit card and automatically the charge is USD at 100/1. (Current exchange rate is 127/1). Outrageous and abusive. I won't be back.

We had very good food here. We did not have reservations. The hostesses was pleasant and found us seating after some time. The first dish I ordered was the jerk conch and I had to send it back. Only because it was too spicy for my sensitive stomach. They did not charge me and I ordered curry shrimp with plantains..EXCELLENT... More

Pier 1 is the best place to dance your cares away. Watching all the latest dance moves unfold before your very eyes is spectacular. The breeze off the ocean is so relaxing while walking the length of the pier. Drinks in your cup never stop coming. We always have a great time on Friday nights at Pier 1
