The Curried Goat was excellent. The Stewed Oxtail was salty but otherwise enjoyable. The fish soup was nice but wasn't served hot enough

Absolutely terrible. It took an hour and half to get our food for four peope. We ordered a flat bread as an appetizer , looked like a kid made it. People all around us were getting their food all around us. Asked for the manager, she just stared at us when we asked about our food. No, I’m sorry let me check on it , noting! Would NEVER ago back.

Pier 1 features a lovely ambiance and good drinks; however, the food isn’t great. I dined at the restaurant with 13 other people, so we were able to try a variety of dishes. The oxtail lacked flavor and the sauce was a bit off. It definitely wasn’t worth ordering. Also, the steamed red snapper had very little taste. The salmon, however, was good, and the saltfish fritters were tasty. Overall, however, I wouldn’t recommend the food——but I would definitely recommend the ambiance.

The service was slow!!! We ordered starters and the server brought out our starters with our main dishes. The food came out warm and the calamari was good. I had to wait 15 minutes to get a drink from the bar while people walked up ti the bar and got there drinks right away. I’ve been better off going to the bar myself. The best part was the breeze.

I made reservations 2mths in advance for 8:30pm. I advised was making reservations to celebrate 40th birthday. Now they did have the table set with the colors I wanted, but I was disappointed that they rushed us to order and eat. Stated the kitchen closes at 9pm and the have to have all tables cleaned and off the floor do to turning restuarant in a night club. So we could no longer sit finish food and enjoy celebrating because of the club atmosphere. 1st time in Jamaica and not very happy about this restaurant.

The service was slow and unprofessional. It took a while for the waiter to get our orders right and then when the food was brought out she still did not have the right orders.

Pier 1 was great! Walked in with a reservation and the staff were right there to put us at our table. Immediately we were given menus and drinks. The ambiance was very romantic by the ocean. Perfect setting in a true Jamaican restaurant. The food was abundant and quite tasty. The quality and quantity was more than enough for 2 people. I had the jerk pork with rice and peas it’s fried cassava.

We visited Pier 1 while on vacation in Mobay. The food was yummy and the drinks are great as well. After 11pm it turned into a club. The music was great but it does get very crowded on Thursday nights.

The waitress was not attentive to our needs. Didn't refresh water. Took forver for food to come. Had to flag waitress down to find out what was the delay. It was my wife's birthday and I put a note when I made the reservation. No acknowledgement of it. Very disappointed!!

At first I thought our experience would not go as we expected. Coming to pier 1, for our 9th year anniversary with our three children was a very good experience. Upon arrival we were warmly received and welcome by a receptionist/ hosts who was nicely dressed in their work attire. The ambiance and the food was very good, the service and the entertainment was good. We had a great time. I recommend you to go if you are skeptic about what happens at pier 1, give it a go, you would not be disappointed. Go ahead and have a good time.

We celebrated our 37th Anniversary here, and it was an incredible experience.
Even though it rained, it made it more fun and romantic.
The staff had beautiful flowers on our table, the music was romantic songs played, and we had incredible food and service. We had the seafood pot, which was delectable.
Everything was perfect here.
We will be back.

Beautiful setting, right on the water. Everything we ordered was excellent-two different fish entrees, a pasta and a chicken dish within our group, plus two different desserts. Would highly recommend, but be sure to make a reservation.

The food was delicious. A bit disappointed ting that many things were not available but what I did order was phenomenal. The only negative is that it took a long to get our drinks and food. And when we were done it took over 20 minutes to get our check. but over all I would return

The only problem I had was our original waitress. She walked pass our table several times without even getting a drink order or water. Another lady Nicola who was the cashier at the bar end up serving us. We kept her as our waitress and she was really awesome. Outside of the waitress everything else was great.

Still in two minds about this. The food when it arrived was fine for me, but for my two companions, they complained of cold rice - my baked potato was hot enough to burn my mouth, but perhaps their meals had been sitting waiting so that the vegetables and rice were cold. The chicken wasn't enjoyed, although the waitress was very friendly and willing to take a special request to the kitchen.
Despite all this, a wonderful setting on the water, pity it wasn't the best sunset on the day we were there, but we may be back just to see the view.
