Good place to go for fresh seafood, nothing fancy but a typical island fare. Great seafood at a decent price. The flounder and red snapper was prepared very well.

Let's start with the positives: Pier 19 overlooks the water. And it's got cute, kitschy signs and sayings posted throughout the restaurant. And the menu is extensive.

Drinks awesome and food was amazing! Coctel de camaron was so good I couldn't stop eating it. I had Shrimp Diablos that were stuffed with jalapeño and cream cheese, wrapped in bacon, grilled, then drizzled with raspberry chipotle sauce. Best thing I've eaten in long time. Best hush puppies ever. Coconut shrimp and Mashed potatoes great also.

We really loved the atmosphere here! So quaint and fun. You truly feel like you're on vacation in a seaside town. Our waiter was very personable and took great care of us. The four stars are for the atmosphere and service. Unfortunately the food wasn't as good. We had the red snapper (fillet so that might have been the problem)... More
