While on vacation, our family stopped to eat here. Didn't need a reservation, only 20 min wait and the food was great. We all got various baskets of fried shrimp, fish, oysters. It was all delicious....esp the fish! We ate and watched the sunset (did I mention the restaurant is located on a pier?) It was such a fun and... More

The good is good, friendly staff. They cooked the fish we caught on our fishing tour and it was amazing. Prices are average compared to similar places on the island.

Wish I could keep it a secret so that it won't get crowded, but this was by far the best breakfast on the island. Clean restaurant, attentive staff and delicious food. Biscuits were heaven and mimosas were yummy! Our entire family loved the food!

We went to Pier 19 expecting just that, dinner on a pier and probably ordinary island food. Our drinks were very good. I ordered pan grilled grouper with Cole slaw hush puppies and rice. It was very good but the best part was the ponchetrain sauce. It was incredible! It was a cream gravy for fish and it was different... More

Food was really good and we sat on the pier and watched the sunset. It took a while to get our food but it was ok.

The food is excellent. They have a breakfast special everyday - runs about $4, which is great when you have a large group. Service is outstanding. The kids love to go out on the Pier and look around while their meal is being prepared.

We have visited SPI many many times in the past, but we have never been to Pier 19 before. Then we ended up eating there twice last week! They have a very extensive menu, offering a lot. Each of our waiters were very friendly and nice to deal with our large group. The hostess staff could have been friendlier. The... More

My hubby and I recently visited SPI and stayed at the KOA. So glad we did as we were able to eat at Pier 19 often! While staying at the KOA for two days, we ate at Pier 19 four times! First, I will address Happy Hour. OMG! You can get a yummy libation at a very cheap price here.... More
