I was glad to have had the chance to come to OOB and this restaurant with friends for a day of slumming: a tradition, most years. This was a great way to start our adventure with some beer and grubs on the pier. It is famous, actually- The Pier: and at one time boasted a ballroom and big band music....... More

The food is nothing to write home about but its got a great view and you pay for it. Its an ok place get loud at night and turns into a bar scene more than resturant. Kids not allowed in after a certain time. Worth checking out.

This was our third visit to OOB and also our third visit to the Patio Pub. I love the Pier more than any other attraction at any beach that I've been to. The only reason I forced myself to give this place 2 stars is for the view and environment. You're literally suspended over top of the ocean and can... More

If you can get an outside table as the ocean view is fantastic. The prices are high as you pay for the view. The food not the greatest. We had a lobster roll which was not fresh and way over-buttered - yuck. If you want to have ocean-front dining then this is the place to go. Just order drinks (expensive... More

We have been coming here for years. I tried to tell the waitress that the clams were over cooked and she tried to tell me it is all in preference. They were solid all the way through and tasted very crisp but not burned. She didn't ask if I wanted new ones just shrugged me off. I most likely will... More

The only thing good about this place is the view. Food over priced and mediocre. My husband asked for Cole slaw or potato salad which was an uncharge. Waitress gave it to him " it is gross I can't charge people for it". Horrible service.

Restaurant at the end of the pier! Seating inside and out. Food is fast, staff is friendly! Can be crowded if you get there at the wrong time! Can sit and eat while people play on the surf below you!

The view is tremendous, and you simply can't beat sitting out on a pier above the ocean on a sunny afternoon with a cold beverage in your hand. The only problem is that Management and/or ownership knows this and figures that they don't have to deliver on the other things that are normally important in the restaurant industry. Forget asking... More

The lobster roll here was very dry and I assume uses claw meat. It was very dry and flavorless. The only good thing was the calamari. The place is very small
