Went with friends and had a nice evening! Watched the fishing and dolphins while waiting for a table. Live music was very pleasant and enjoyable. At the table we had buffalo popcorn shrimp (a nice large serving of shrimp!), a fish dinner- I can't remember the type- and crab cakes. They were the dinner crab cake croissants which were very...

Over the years this has been a regular stop. It can be an acquired taste as I love Florida seafood and some offerings are not the usual fare if you aren't from here. The clam chowder would please anyone and the grouper sandwich is excellent. i will go back whenever possible.

Enjoyable setting and great beer specials. Can be windy, but worth the walk! The onion rings are amazing!

This restaurant is out on a pier in Anna Maria. Food was good but priced a little on the high side. The Caesar salad was huge and delicious. The clam chowder was excellent (New England style). Twenty-five Shrimp platter came with fries which my buddy got looked great. Beer and wine is offered.

We were drawn to the view and uniqueness of this restaurant at the end of the pier. We each a cup of soup, lobster bisque and clam chowder both good. We ordered the calamari and it was a ridiculous amount for two people and only so so (frozen rings). After that we lost our appetite to order anything else. The... More

The length of the pier might be too long for people with challenges walking. Smaller place with windows overlooking the water. There were people fishing on the pier and others sitting at the outdoor bar. Casual place with good food. Had the 20 piece shrimp special and the food was very good. Would go back.

We went to dinner while visiting family. They insist on taking us restaurants with great views and it doesn't get much better than the City Pier, which as the name implies, is at the end of the boardwalk. We arrived early and were able to take advantage of some very reasonably priced early bird specials. I had the coconut shrimp... More

People will say, "Don't miss the City Pier Restaurant." "Old Florida." Do not believe them. I found it almost scandalous that a restaurant on an island in the Gulf of Mexico served frozen fish! Before I knew about the frozen fish, we decided to give the restaurant a try because we could walk to it. Mistake! It was way overpriced... More

Met some folks in town who recommended this restaurant at the end of the long City Pier. Early Bird is 3-6 with limited selections but very reasonable prices. House-made gumbo was great. Fish and chips ($8.95) were very good, and the pollack lightly breaded. Service was good and friendly. We were there on a very windy day, and could feel... More

We were very excited to try the City Pier for the first time and we had a wonderful time! It was a bit windy so we ate inside but the atmosphere was wonderful! Giant windows facing the water on 3 sides and little white lights at the top of all the windows made for a cozy, fun time. Husband had... More
