“It is just a pier”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

For $1 it is an ok thing to go walk on, but it is just a pier.You have to pay more to fish. It was okay if you have time to kill.

“A Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is really one of my favorite things to do on the island--stroll the pier and just hang out for a little while. It isn't terribly exciting, but it is refreshing and relaxing.

“Pretty View”

Overall a nice view. More for fishing but nice to a least see at once if you are staying on Topsail.

“It's a Pier...what did you expect?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

If you plan on fishing from the pier then it is a good place to go. If you have never been on a Pier before then it is an enjoyable 30 min. If you have been on a Pier & you just want to walk out, save your money and walk along the beach.

“Fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This pier is SOOOOO Friendly. They are very helpful for us first time fishermen.. We had such a good time. The Pier Witch is awesome and so helpful. Steve and the guys will help you pick the right bait and poles and teach you how to fish for mullet or King Mackeral.
