    first time diner. I can only imagine how crowded this place would be in the summer months. We were here in later September. We were pleasantly surprised with the great views. Tyler was a great server. The food runners were helpful. Food came out on time and hot. good portions. we will return.

    Great food, great service, and the view of the waves coming up onto the sand really adds to the experience. Good spot to go off season if you’re craving the beach but it’s too cold to eat outdoors. We had seafood - halibut and crab cakes - and both were excellent. Also loved the avocado/mango/crab meat starter. Our server was terrific and didn’t rush us at all but everything came out quickly, including cocktails. I’d go back.

    Good food, service and views of the Atlantic. Menu has plenty to choose from for all types of diners. A bit hectic to park but that is the nature of Pier Village especially on holidays and the summer weekends.

    Terrible experience tonight. Waiter came to table pured water and was gone for a solid 20 minutes before taking our appetizer order. Kids food was so cold and our expensive Oysters were tiny. Waste. The avocado stack was good. Waited another 40 minutes for Waiter to come back for our entry order. By then they were sold out of what we wanted. Our glasses were empty for an solid our without refill. On to coffee ice cold and again Waited. I got up and brought the coffee to the kitchen area we were so frustrated. No manager to provide any type of retribution so tonight they lost customers. I don't think they really cared. Needs real management that "gets" it. Tired of service industry hiring "woke" young adults who think it's your privilege for to be served when spending good money. Stop hiring people that are not cut out for service and would be better off in other industries or train them what hospitality is and to recognize when a customers unhappy over terrible service & cold food. Again lost opportunity for our business.

    I want to say the service was excellent but I was very disappointed in the food. Celery and carrots that came with the wings were dried up. The poke bowl was okay. Bathroom was very messy. For the higher prices I do not feel that your restaurant has kept up the standards that used to have.

    Loved the live music. Burger wasn’t cooked to correct temp. They did bring out a new burger, however the error caused a disconnect with the timing of our dining. Everyone else was done eating when the new burger came out.

    Food was very average. I had tuna and soba noodles. No sauce or seasoning, literally just tuna and soba noodles. I asked for soy sauce and siracha and that helped Other diner has salmon, very bland not a tasty meal at all. The ambiance was nice , right on the beach but too many other restaurants with good views in the area. We won’t be returning

    The food was great but I couldn’t hear a thing anyone at the table was saying. Even our waitress had a hard listening to us. She had to crouch down to better hear us. The noise level was abysmal and honestly ruined the entire experience. Quite a shame because we certainly enjoyed the food.

    When reservation was made told Mcloones its our 44th wedding Anniversary dinner. Made 3 weeks in advance. Asked for window seat overlooking ocean. When we arrived, Hostess with a attitude took us to our table not to window seat. She said they don't take those seating location reservations. ( I saw a few seats at the window available). She said we can wait an Hour and see if one comes up. In the past they were accommodating and food had more generous proportions. Had to pay almost 7 dollars pre meal rolls (in the past it was free). Fish and chips was 1 small piece. (in past we recieved 3 good size pieces. Proportions of food was substantially smaller. Thursday night dinner was not a high volumn evening for dinner seating. We enjoyed the West Orange restaurant but the Pier Village had sub standard customer service.
