“Crowded on Weekend Nights”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We went on a Friday night during their Happy Hour. It was very crowded with mainly a senior crowd. Their happy hour drinks were good and not watered down. Their happy hour food specials were just OK. The 20 cooked shrimp were average size and some were a little mushy, but overall OK. Their rib special very fatty and not great quality. The highlight of the night was the great entertainment. I'd go there again with friends for cheap drinks and to enjoy the music.

“Cocoa Beach Pier”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Enjoyed the visit, right on beach of course and parking was available, however, if college kids on vacation, it can be a challenge to find parking.
Restaurants on the pier provided good food and great views of course.

“Nice place to watch surfers and the sunset.”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

They have a variety of restaurants here, and a few bars as well. Since it is a tourist spot, it can get busy, and of course you will pay for parking. But it is a nice place to go hang out and enjoy a few drinks with friends, or dinner while watching the sunset.

“Great view and location”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

The pier has a great view up and down the beach. Lots of fishermen while we were there. There is a bar at the far end of the pier that had great service. The Boardwalk Bar and Grill were very disappointing. The bar had one attendant and was overwhelmed. The food in the restaurant was terrible. There was one waitress for 10 tables. She did her best but was just too busy for good service. All 10 tables were occupied. I ordered fish and chips thinking that being on a beach pier the food would be fresh. The 3 pieces of fish looked like it just came out of a Mrs. Pauls box and deep fried. It was burned and I sent it back. Not 3 minutes later she was back with almost the same looking plate.
Don't waste your money here. There is a restaurant at the head of the pier called " Aw Shucks" that appeared much better but I can't comment on it since we messed up and didn't eat there.

“Great Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We like to go to the Cocoa Beach Pier for Sunday brunch because they have a very large assortment of food starting with breakfast thru dessert. If you can't find something to please your appetite it possible doesn't exsist.
