Overall great experience... Highly recommend restaurant at Pier 39. Even though touristy area, food was excellent and Kyle, our waiter, was great. Sweet and sour calamari was best we've had and the clam chowder was amazing! Fish dishes recommended by waiter (blackened cod and ahi tuna) were delicious. Don't miss out on a great find!

This is the little sister of Fog Harbor Fish House (FHFH) which is just up the pier. Pier Market is a cheaper alternative that FHFH which we had dinner in the night before. The quality of FHFH had spoiled us a bit and Pier Market, although it was very good, just didnt excite anymore after our FHFH experience the night before.

In all fairness, the food was good, especially for the price and location also superb. I would recommend Pier Market for a good lunch spot and recommend you divert to FHFH if you are willing to spend a little bit extra for a totally different level of experience.

We had lunch at the Pier Market and it was excellent. I had the Fisherman's platter and my wife had the fried shrimp. We sat at the bar and received excellent service. I have almost quit eating fried food but made an exception on this trip.

I recently went there and the service was impeccable with Ricardo as my server he was on point. With the amount of traffic this place has i was truly impressed with his able to keep up with all of his tables. If they spoke English or not this guys was amazing. Also the Manager Anthony was the man of the hour. This guys busy tables, Played hosts and ran food what a guy. I left my charger at home and this guy plugged my phone in his office to recharge. Know that is what you call service. Listen up people whenever in The Bay go see them its worth the wait. The was wonderful take a look.
