    Basically a great waterfront location, with surprisingly decent food. But the noise level was overwhelming. Seated next to me in a booth, my wife & I had to raise our voices nearly to the level of "yelling." So loud, it was funny.

    It was raining the night I went to dinner here, so I completely missed out on the outdoor dining and the incredible view. We ate inside and although we could see the city lights, it wasn't the same. It was such as loud place, that my friend and I were screaming to be heard and we were at a two person table. The food was ok, glorified bar food. There were multiple college football games being shown that night. Its a shame it was raining because I feel like I missed out on the best part of the entire place, the outdoor seating.

    I came with a big group of friends to celebrate my 17th birthday. It is definitely not a place for teenagers. It has more of an older crowd. Food wasn't that good for the high price of it. Our waitress was really slow.

    Went out to dinner with my husband and our sons who are in their 20's. Sports Bar type of place with TV's in every direction. We felt this would appeal to our sons. Menu is varied with bar sized thin crust pizza which we had for an appetizer. I had the salmon burger with avocado and I was not disappointed. My husband had a Philly cheesesteak. Nice size sandwich he took 1/2 home. My son had salmon with quinoa and my other son had a chicken dish. All in all we had a very enjoyable meal. We sat next to a window and the view is spectacular. There is also outdoor seating but it was a little breezy and we stayed inside. We will most definitely go back again.

    Looked for a place on the river, it literally felt like we were in the middle on a boat. Free parking, lunch was tasty, no complaints about the food, the only issue was that the drinks only arrived after the appetizer was finished and then only one cocktail arrived and not the soft drinks for the other two members of our party. The waiter was inattentive and the place wasn't busy as we arrived at noon and were the only people there for a while, but hopefully he was the only one, the other waiters milling about seemed to be all over their tables so I would go back and recommend it to others.

    I was recommended this place and definitely recommend as well. I highly suggest you make reservations ahead of time. We had a great waiter Caesar, who took great care of us and was attentive to our table, which honestly I haven't had in awhile at other places. Drinks from the bar can be on the small size and pricey but well worth it!! Food was great and took a little while to come out but it was very busy and with the views time passed without seeming forever, but I would recommend you order an app if your hungry:) overall great place!!!

    On 7/31/14, it was my first visit to Pier 115. I really enjoyed it, mostly because of the great view and being able to sit al fresco for dinner. My reservation was at 6:15 and i was immediately seated. The restaurant was semi busy as it was only 6:15 when we got there, but by the time we left at 9:30 ... we had a drink at the bar also it was starting to pick up with an evening crowd. I wold definitely go back and look forward to going on a Friday or Saturday night to see the atmosphere as i was told that there is a DJ on those nights. I was happy overall with food, service and atmosphere.

    I recently had lunch at Pier 115 with a life long friend. I recommended we go there and was sorry I did. The burgers were awful. I had the saddle burger which included "crispy onion ribbons", which were anything but crispy. Soggy and old. The burgers were dry and the fries were frozen. The salads were ok. I've been disappointed by this restaurant before and so has everyone I've brought. Guess I finally learned. Also, they really need to actually wash the windows, it's pretty awful to look out onto the river through dirty windows with hand prints all over them.

    The food was good and they had a nice beer selection but the noise level is high. We asked to be seated in the glass encased room that made it slightly quieter. The view is great and we had a good time. If you're looking for a nice place to go, try this place during the week; there's a club connected to it so it gets crowded and noisy on the weekends.

    The ambience in this place is great. A mixture of young professional and older crowd (very minimal though). Dj was playing great music. Can't beat dancing, having a cocktail, and a great view by the water. The food was ok. Wouldn't eat there again. The hummus was dry and not presentable. They charge way too much for the food they serve. The waitress was sweet but lacked experience, as she failed to give us utensils. They were very accommodating to my reservation, as half of my party was late!!

    The food was just ok. I didn't like it enough to finish what was on my plate, nor did half of our party (group of 7). The only way we got drinks was by tracking the server down. She was very friendly and knowledgeable when she was addressing the table, but she did not check on us ever. The manager brought dessert for a birthday like it was an order, walked over to the table and said "ice cream?" No candle or anything. He quickly realized and came back to do it correctly, but it wasn't the same. Someone at the table ordered a round of shots and they brought 1 shot. Then they decided to comp us a round of shots, but a different one than we ordered. The whole experience was just weird, and I wouldn't be excited to return to this restaurant.

    I have many issues with this resturant but I will limit to two. Given there is a large parking lot I find it really annoying that you MUST valet your car. The parking lot is a bit of a walk to the front door so I see offering valet parking. However forcing it on people for the cost of $5 is pretty much a money grabbing move. Secondly, although the food is good and so it the view, the service is horrible. From start to finish the service was poor at best. The hostess cannot get it together and the waitress had an awful attitude and couldn't be bothered. We ordered a pizza - never bringing us the topping tray, extra napkins, even offering us a second beverage. She brought us the bill before even offering us dessert.

    Outstanding Bar & Grill! Typical menu for a bar & grill, however, the burgers were unique and quite yummy! They have an excellent beer list! And, of course, the scenic view is their signature since its right on the Hudson. They have a large sitting deck for lounging and dining, which was a nice touch! Highly recommend this restaurant!

    a casual restaurant with a few tables and couches on the water. went on a Sunday evening and it was a mixed crowd. menu is minimal but everyone seemed to like what they ordered. the Margherita pizza had nice flavor, I ordered the tsunami burger which I liked. an unusual incident took place, the service wasn't great and we all noticed it from the start. we were advised the waiter who was servicing our table was no longer with the business. we wondered what happen to him after waiting 20 or so minutes before being told he quit/was fired.

    Located at the very end of the pier in Edgewater, it juts into the Hudson River, giving a breathtaking view of NY. You have to pass warehouses on the way to the restaurant and it gives it a chic trendy, ambiance. The food is pub fare and it was tasty. The wings were delicious!!! Service was OK. It's noisy and vibrant with TVs throughout. A great place for young people out for a drink and/or a bite to eat. I enjoyed the outing with my 20 year old sons.

    I like the whole concept of the restaurant especially the craft beer and the outdoor seating. But like most places that cater to the craft beer person and artisanal food the service lacks. Servers don't know about what they are selling and as for management the prices on things are alittle ridiculous I'm in the industry and charging $9 for a draft beer that shouldn't be more then $6.50-$7 is crazy

    This is the second time we've been to Pier 115 and we were not disappointed! The food is very good...the service is very good...and the view is outstanding. We all tried something different than we had the first time and were very happy with our choices. Both visits we asked our waiter for a beer suggestion, based on something we drank but wasn't on the menu...and their suggestions were right on. I will say that it's hard to find. The first time we went, we drove around and around and had to call them from the parking lot for directions. They have a large sign out by the road...but it doesn't help. Looking forward to the summer when we can sit out on the deck/patio.

    Was in the area on Saturday and being that it was a beautiful day, my fiancé and I wanted to have unch outdoors if possible. Searched for outdoor seating on open table nearby and this what the first restaurant that popped up. Excellent food (the Logan burger was the best burger I've had in a long time), great mixed drinks and an amazing view as promised. Would go back with friends
