My wife and I eat here all the time and have never been disapointed. I believe we have tried everything on the menu and everything is awesome. We tend to go early because it gets busy quick, we are always seated immediately. The service is prompt and very friendly. I would recomend this place if you are in the Rock Hill area.

Food is amazing!! NOT Frozen and NOT Pre-breaded! You can tell that they bread and cook the food by order! None of that fake frozen Gorton's as some people have posted! They should be ashamed to compare this Fresh and always HOT food in that manner! Oh and those hushpuppies are sinful!! I recommend this place to everyone! You won't be disappointed!!

Pier 51 now clearly owns the best fish camp in Rock Hill area by far in my opinion. The fish is very good, with regular, and salt & pepper coatings for fried fans. The fried Flounder, Cod, and jumbo Shrimp are all excellent choices. The french fries are crispy, and delicious. The onion rings are excellent fresh onion rings.
The salad bar, included with you meal, is very nicely done. The slaw is very good. Clearly the chief, and cooks take pride in what the do, and the customer is the winner.
Serving sizes are very generous, and the price is reasonable. What more can one ask?

We live within walking distance of Pier 51 in Rock Hill and have driven by many times to a full parking lot. Last Friday we decided to treat ourselves to dinner. I ordered the fried fantail shrimp and deviled crab and my husband ordered the fried scallops. I don't know how the broiled or baked food is but we could have done better by going to the grocery store and picking up Gorton's frozen food. The food was pre-breaded and frozen, not fresh. We were served no bread or rolls and the salad bar should be considered a greens bar.
After vacationing up and down the New England seacoast we know what good fresh seafood tastes like and this was nowhere near it...sorry I couldn't be kinder but I had to send out this warning.
