Stay away. We are here now and the food sucks. The lobster was bad and we were charged for it. So bad we could not eat it. Should have listened to all the bad reviews

I ordered the clam strips they were ok, the fries were not very good, the was good. My friend ordered the fish and chips the coating on the fish was very greasy. She took it off and just ate the fish which she said was good.

From start to finish this place was horrible. My daughter and I had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a booth. Why? I don't know. There were 6 empty booths and no one else waiting. Finally got seated, then it was another 10 minutes before our waitress came over to us. I should've left then but we just wanted to... More

We ate at Pier One last night because the wait at Bum Rogers was over an hour. We should have know when we walked in that when the place next door has a really long wait and this place has 2 occupied tables that something was wrong. We should have just left but decided to give it a chance. The... More

Our server forgot our water, then brought it without the lemon I asked for, then forgot the side that came with my meal, then brought it (mashed potatoes). The mashed potatoes were heaped into a minuscule bowl with a pool of buyer on the side/bottom of the mound. They tasted like the powdered/boxed kind. When I asked to switch sides,... More

This is our place to eat breakfast while we are vacationing at the Jersey Shore. Prices are very reasonable and the chef makes the best eggs, pancakes and home fries. You can't go wrong. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating too.

We ended up at this restaurant because the wait next door Bum Rodgers was 45 mins and our children were starving. We should have known better since there was no wait at the pier house. Our children got chicken fingers and fries which were ok. I got the scallops dinner for 28 dollars. I got about 10 scallops with mash... More

We went here because The Bum Steer next door was overflowing. First, we discovered that it is a BYOB place - no liquor license. but you may bring your own. Which of course we hadn't. We were in time for the early bird special, so I ordered the "Fish of the Day'. If it's true that a standard 4 oz.... More

We went here as a large group for our grandpas birthday. They were able to accommodate us right away. The food is a bit pricey but the atmosphere is fun and there are lots of nautical things to look at. My daughter has loved this place since her first visit when she was 5. She is now 14 and we...

This was our second visit to the Pier House Resturant although they only feature booth seating, the accomodated us very nicely for my son who is in a wheel chair. The food was well prepared and tasty and also pleasing to the eye as you eat with your eyes first
