We had a great mahi dinner here. The fish filet was generous compared to what we get in Colorado. We had one with garlic butter and the other chipotle and both were tasty. There is not a full bar, just beer and wine if that matters. The staff was friendly and attentive. It is located at the end of a pier so has great views and perfect Florida atmosphere. If on the island, this place is definitely worth a visit.

Decent ambiance, but the younger staff seem more interested in hanging with each other than providing service. Could be much better run, but hard to beat the view. Cheap beer, marginal food. City Pier is a decent option.

Hi this pier is the pier to watch sunsets off and its also the pier where loads of kids come grab fish in there hundreds from the sea tip them on the sand and the birds go crazy eating them .I found this sad as its a fishing pier not one for silly kids to muck about on and around it and kill endless fish.other than that its a nice walk on the small pier and it gets very windy most days and nights on it too but lovely to just sit and watch the birds diving into the sea for fish and to just literally sit and relax and you can see egmont key clearly from here which looks beautifull with all the sand surrounding the island ..food is mosttly fish on the pier not much choice

We were driving around and saw this place, so glad we stopped. The fish choices were excellent and could be cooked in any way you preferred. I had the garlic mahi mahi with a jacket potato and salad, it was beautiful... Would definitely come back for another visit. We had a window seat whilst eating, so could watch the birds fight with the fishermen and sat downstairs to enjoy the evening.

Love this place! The food is delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. This is not a fancy place, if you are looking for that go elsewhere. We sat at our table last night and watched dolphins jumping, and stingrays swimming. We have eaten swordfish, shrimp, grouper and one friend even had a hamburger. Recommend this place 100%
