Great great seafood salad. It was the best lunch/ dinner I had for the 5 days I was there!!! The lettuce was fresh and crisp along with the big tomato the seafood salad s served in. I also ordered the Malibu baybreeze which was very good and refreshing!

Group of 8 Adults came here for an evening dinner. Sat outside with awesome views. Service Dinner & Drinks had by all was good. We each had a variety of items off the menu so difficult to say which if anything was outstanding other than to say all 8 of us were pleased with our meals.

Worst service ever from the hostess (extremely rude) to waitress (Amanda) that we only saw every 30 minutes. We couldn't get refills and she actually stuck her thumb in our salad when it finally came. I live here and am shocked that this is the type of service they give to our tourists. Disgusting. Don't eat here

Meal's were very good, I enjoyed trying the Gator tail. Had a wonderful zesty dipping sauce with it. A bit pricey but as expected on the beach. Great waitstaff who was very busy and managed to keep everyone happy. Live music at the bar. Would go back for sure.

We always have excellent service and friendly wait staff. Reasonably priced too. Great location for dinner either outside or inside. The coconut shrimp is awesome along with their huge salads. Been coming here for 5 years....Our very favorite place to eat on the beach! Don't miss it...highly recommended.

Pierside Grill has a beach front deck as well as indoor seating. The food and drinks are very good. The atmosphere is the best with people on the beach. The pier is also fun for walking and fishing. A most enjoyable time is spent here.

While the bartenders were not overly excited to greet us, they served us up some cold beers very quickly. The crowd was a little bit older, perhaps because this is also a restaurant. Regardless, we had fun talking with some of the older crowd and enjoying a cold beer. Live music behind the bar was great, too. Definitely worth coming... More
