My husband and I would like to thank The Charles family for their response during the pandemic. We had booked with Pier for our wedding in July 2020 well before the pandemic hit. We had transferred thousands of dollars and made lots of plans. As...the months passed on with lots of uncertainty, The Pier advised they were unsure if they would be able to reopen for our wedding date, so my husband and I had to make plans elsewhere. However, Jacque, Lily and the team went beyond our expectations. They were upfront from the start that they would refund us all the money as soon as they were able. We understand it would have been an extremely tough time for lots of local businesses at the height of restrictions. They kept us updated on their situation. The day of our wedding at another venue, we were surprised to receive a beautiful bottle of champagne and a handwritten note from the Charles family congratulating us. Apart from Pier restaurant having delicious food, beautiful location and top quality service from the wait staff, they are the most genuine and kind people. This permeates through their business. We are deeply thankful for their generosity and transparency at such a tough time. We can't wait to dine back here again and could not speak more highly of them.More

We’d just got off the Greyhound with all our luggage and they were very accommodating with finding somewhere to put the bags so we could enjoy our lunch Friendly service, nice atmosphere and view of the harbour. Beautiful fresh seafood and a chocolate tart to...die for.More

Wasn't a place I would normally choose but our friends took us there. We had the shared seafood platter hot/cold there was a large selection of different types of seafood and we didn't wait long. personally I thought it was slightly overpriced especially when the...oysters were about the size of a ten cent peice. I would go again but order something different. The donuts dessert I had was very average.More

We came here for Valentine's Day and got the seafood platter for two. The food was really good. The service was really good and was worth the higher cost. We had mosquito issues at our table at the outside deck and the girls were more...than happy to move us inside. Overall very happy and would recommend.More

We attended for a late lunch. The restaurant was empty so we received excellent service from friendly staff. The Pier is in a lovely location in the Marina and is quite spacious. We ordered the Caesar Salad & the Calamari. Caesar was really enjoyable and...a generous serve of Calamari was accompanied by a freshly dressed green salad & chips. All very good food. Good drinks menu but probably not a ''cheap eats'' venue. Recommended.More

Went with a group of friends. My friends liked their gluten free and vegetarian options. I got the crab and barramundi dumplings - they were good but $19 for 4 dumplings wasn’t what I hadn’t in mind. It didn’t fill me up. So maybe don’t...get the dumplings. I tried some of my friends scallops tho - scallops weren’t the best but the truffle and pea purée was amazing. Beautiful location.More
