We went to Keenan's at the Pier for a birthday and our first foray after we were fully vaccinated. It was indeed very special; the food, the view and the service was exceptional. We will definitely be coming back for more!

I made the reservation for a birthday luncheon several days prior to the date. Since the reason for lunch was noted on the form I thought we would be seated at a nice table. Instead we were seated in the far corner and the south view was stacked extra tubs and carts stored on the deck. It was a lovely day but we could see very little of a water view. The service and food were good.

Enjoyed COVID safe dining on the deck overlooking the bay. Heat lamps made it comfortable. Partitions separated us from other diners. Very enjoyable experience for the first time at a restaurant in a long time.

Celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary with dinner at Keenan’s at the Pier. We both had Seafood Chowder, which is the best I have ever had. The halibut was delicious as well, and presented nicely on the plate. Really like that they offer local breweries in their draft list.

Felt very safe as each table was separated by a plexiglass screen. You could see other diners so it was very social but also kept noise down. I had halibut and it was excellent. The shrimp appetizer was delicious.
Service by Nicole was fun, timely and very professional!

The view can’t be beat, being right on the water. The food is well prepared and very tasty with the exception of the battered fish which was a bit over cooked. Cost wise it is on par with the current “pandemic” pricing in the area. Still for two people, with drinks it was $63, Compare that to 5 Guys, 2 burgers, small fries, a shake & a cup of tap water for $30. Keenan’s continues to be a great place for a meal.

Bare bones, plain decor inside Keenans was nothing special, but of courses, the sunset view is the thing. And taking a walk down Taylor dock after dinner IN the ambience of that view is the other thing.
The hush puppies and crab cakes were delicious appetizers, and everyone at our table of eight enjoyed them and wanted more. We had mixed reviews on our entrees. Those who got burgers thought they were much too wet, but had good flavor. The Whisky crab chowder was strangely stringy and oily, and the White chowder was so creamy it was like clam-flavored half and half. We tried the beet salad and Caesar salad and both were excellent. The vegetarian pasta was very hearty, but needed sauce of some kind. The bread we ordered never arrived. All it all...after eating their four times...it is hit and miss. Sometimes we got food and said, "Wow, this is great!" and other times we did not finish what we ordered because we didn't like it. So, if you have gone their once and weren't impressed, you might try again and order something else and you might get a genuine hit!

I ordered the wrong thing apparently, I didn't care for what I ordered - and the gluten free option for the pasta was horrible!

We happened to get very lucky and had amazing weather to sit on the deck and enjoy the view, some live music coming from the pier. Service was excellent and the food was delicious!

What an amazing place to enjoy a meal! We sat outside under a propane heater in early April and it was fabulous. The evening view of the bay and islands is spectacular. The service was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back!

Very modern and upbeat restaurant with lots of glass to view the bay. Updated with classy glass table dividers for COVID. Very bright and cheery. Our server was a class act and very attentive. She went the extra mile to accommodate us. The menu was mixed with good variety. I had the BLT and it was made perfectly. Great reports from my three other diners. Will definitely make a point of returning.

Our reservation was clearly not on the list. We were put in a non view corner by the doors to outside seating. I had notes this was a special day for my Mom and wanted a treat brought out but no. Very disappointing.

Our waitress was very helpful. When I ordered my steak, she recommended asking for it on the rarer side and said she would take it back to be cooked longer if needed. It was perfect. She was attentive without being overbearing. My husband had the prawn special with sweet potatoes and corn salsa, the food was amazing.
