We visited with a relatively large group for breakfast twice this week. The french toast was so good I was happy to go back! The pancakes were disappointing though. I hear the scrapple was good and the home fries tasty. The decor was beachy, clean and comfortable. The service was better the second time too.

My wife and I visited the Pier 1 and liked the ambiance. The food came in a timely manner and the service was excellent. They have since added more parking which helps a lot rather than on street and the small lot they still have. Coming down Main Street into town, look for Pier 1 right at the light. You... More

While the location is great along the potamac, the food was okay and the service was not stellar. The fish n chips was a bit poor, small, rubbery breading and shoestring fries. The steak and shrimp was ok, the steak appeared to be precooked and heated on the grill. I'd look at nicks next door and the pizza place upstairs... More

From the name and outside we were expecting an upscale seafood restaurant. Were surprised to open the door and discover it is really a diner with typical diner foods on the menu. Food was very good and prices were excellent for what you got. Would definitely eat there again. But know that it is an old fashioned diner atmosphere.

They have a nice simple breakfast menu and we also had dinner here and the food was very good. This is a locals restaurant so it is busy but service is very good. There is street parking.

We wanted a close to home dinner and Pier 1 always comes through with a winner. Each meal comes with a house salad & Italian bread. My partner got the breaded oyster sandwich and I got the broiled rockfish. Both meals were excellent. Megan did an attentive great job as our server. Prices are always reasonable even with a glass...

Breakfast is great, fast friendly service, omelets are huge.... have also gotten club sandwiches in the past everything is usually good. It can get busy on weekend mornings so don't be an idiot and complain about waiting, people eat breakfast in the morning.

Pier 1 is only minutes from our home in North East, MD and sometimes you take local places for granted. We always get a value priced good meal, but tonight was A GRAND SLAM entree with the special of fresh rockfish in a creamy crab sauce. Unbelievable in richness, quality & taste! My partner had the liver & onions which... More

My mom and I were so excited to eat here but....she has eaten here before and had good meals. I ordered the sauted scallops thinking they would be sauted/ seared in butter but they came out swimming in butter and maybe a bit of sherry? and quite rubbery/ over cooked. They may have been frozen, but I forgot to ask.... More
