Pier 1 is the Friday night party-dance spot in Mobay and the DJ's are good. Always pay with Jamaican dollars (it's less expensive) and EVERYONE with a "non-Jamaican" accent pays waaaayyyy more for liquor at the bar.

We visited on a Wednesday afternoon after debarking from our cruise ship. We wanted somewhere different to eat and a nice scenery to enjoy before we headed off to visit the beach. We arrived before noon and we were told they did not start serving food until then but we were able to sit at the bar and enjoy a... More

We went here on Friday night as here and Margaritaville seems to be the only suggested tourist places to go out at. Meet some locals that we ran into on Thursday at Margaritaville here on Friday as well. So it was a great night of fun drinks and dancing.

The real party doesn't kick off til 1130pm keep that in mind. May seem a little slow at first but as it fills with locals, the vibe totally changes.

Pier One is the number one spot in Montego Bay right now. Friday nights are always busy... a good crowd with a mix of tourists and locals, no screw faces just good vibes... Drinks are not too expensive... Managed to get through a 1 1/2 bottles of Appleton rum between the 4 of us....

This has been one of my best visits to Pier 1. The service was super fast even though there was a lunch time rush. We got our meals on time and with that great Jamaican smile. I had the jerk chicken salad, it was tasty and very filling. The mango vinegerette was great. It was fruity and not overly sweet... More

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

Owned by the Russell family, Pier 1 is Montego Bay's most pulsating open-air Restaurant, Bar and unique Entertainment Centre that has been in operation since 1986. Located on a picturesque peninsula overlooking the bay, you get a feel of being on a ship while you dine in the most breathtaking atmosphere.

Pier 1 is second to none, with a wide variety of seafood dishes done in a variety of ways that is sure to suit even the most finicky diner whether at lunch time or for dinner.
