I often check here before I go anywhere. The recent reviews were mixed but some were seemingly influenced by out of date menu information. You can'rt see them now, which is a bit of a bummer but much better if they aren't kept up to...More

We enjoyed a pleasant lunch at On the Pier recently. The service was friendly and efficient, the food was middle-of-the-road reasonably good quality seafood, and the views overlooking the Clyde River were just lovely. We chose this restaurant mostly for its setting, and were pleased...More

The swordfish was a little tough but the salad was delicious. Dessert was ok but not memorable.All in all, disappointing for $50.

The view is priceless.. the staff are friendly.. and the menu is fantastic!

Reviewed 13 October 2018 via mobile

The service was friendly but with little focus on the customer; and it was very slow. The food was suburban club standard. Very disappointing. The actual location is fantastic but everything else is sub-standard.
