We went with a large group and the meal was filled with mishaps. First off we were told there was no outside dining, and then watched several parties seated on patio. Then we needed help with separating checks and were met with massive attitude. I...get it during peak hours, but this was at 4:30. As for the food, I had the signature Pier 29 sandwich. Imagine bland baby bay shrimp, and non descript seafood in a grilled cheese sandwich. Would never order it again. And my partner had the salad with “albacore” tuna, added at a substantial price. Right out of a can quality. And as far as drinks, absolutely no draft beers available in an area teeming with wonderful craft beers. Skip this one by, lots of better local options.More

3 friends and I went on a Saturday night, and the place was hopping. There was a party of 80 people in one room. We were able to be seated immediately. I ordered the calamari dore which came with a nice cup of clam chowder...(excellent) and I chose a baked potato, also good. And carrots/stringbeans, nicely done. The Calamari was ok although not memorable.More

We had a delightful lunch at Pier 29 Restaurant We very much enjoyed the Shrimp Louie Salad. We added avocado to it for an additional $2. Service was good. We also like the marina views one can see from the tabe.

I have always liked this place, especially the Prime Rib and Lamb Shanks. Sadly I am housebound for a while. Wish they were available through Doordash or Ubereats. Guess I will just have to wait until I can get out and about again

$16 for a $10 sandwich is too much Nice view and friendly waitress. Old building that could use some work

We went during the early bird special and the selection of food was better than most happy hours. It is located at the marina so the setting is beautiful.

I've been eating seafood at some pretty impressive restaurants my whole life. I have never had fresher crab or shrimp anywhere - no matter how fancy or expensive the restaurant. Oh, how I wish I could get this quality of crab and/or shrimp all the...time. For those of you who live anywhere nearby - you are so lucky! This is an older restaurant. But it's still got a lot of charm and the food - all of it, is excellent. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was for my husband and I to enjoy our lunch here. To start off with, we had some really great clam chowder. It was a chilly, rainy day and the chowder was perfect. Then I had the crab and shrimp louie salad and my husband ordered the fish and chips. Besides the crab and shrimp tasting so good, the other ingredients in the salad were so fresh! And my husband's fish and chips (which he kindly let me have some) were also great quality. I need to add that the french fries were amazing - and such a generous portion! Besides the ambiance, the wait staff is very cordial and the service was just fine.More

We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation and were seated promptly. That was about the only thing prompt. We waited to order our drinks and appetizers. One of my table mates chased down a server for the menu's and we waited. If you're looking...for a 2-1/2 hour meal, this is the place for you. However, by the time we left, and numerous comments about hitting In-And-Out burgers, we left late in the evening. The only excuse we received about the delay was "the kitchen was backed up!" There was no couteous apology from the server, not was there any management apology. We won' be returning to this restaurant.More

We had breakfast with a group here. The crab benedict had loads of fresh crab in it and eggs were cooked perfectly. I had the fresh fruit with it and the berries and melon were also fresh and really a nice balance to the benedict....I've had lunch there, but this was the first time for breakfast. We were on our way to visit the USS Hornet, so it was a perfect and convenient stop. Service was excellent, as with lunch. The parking lot is big. The dining area overlooks harbor slips, so is a relaxing location with a nice view.More
