A great place to have dinner and a drink on the ocean. We were in the mood for a burrito, the locals recomended The Pier Cantina, excellent choice!.

You can't beat the views from the outdoor tables along the ocean. While it seems like a dive bar that will just have fried food, the tacos and salsa are actually excellent and very reasonably priced.

I think we caught them on an off day. The taps were down, it was 100 degrees inside.... but it was still delicious. We sat outside which was nice. The California burrito was great. Big plates.

Great service and food was awesome. We had a party of 12 and was seated immediately. We went on a Thursday night for dinner as we were on vacation. Food was awesome. I had a fajita taco salad that was huge and incredible.

Not very friendly apprentice, but great location to the beach. Great food quality, decent choice on the menu. Quick but not excellent service. The cleanliness of the place leaves one or two to be desired.

The menu had plenty to choose from. Most of your traditional mexican restaurant choices were available. You can view their menu online I think. The prices were great. If I recall, my fajitas were about $12.
