Disappointed with service and menu. When booking the reservation items were not on the menu, the server did not give us the specials , we had to request, sushi not fresh, salmon very thought and fishy. Manager did come by the table, did not pay for the sushi order, balance of the food was just ‘ok’. My wife enjoyed the Asian Steak.

Delightful setting outdoors on the Manatee River. Menu with a lot to choose from. My ?Seafood Jambalaya was excellent, and enough for 2 meals. However, my wife's prime rib was not edible. It was like rubber to chew or cut. We complained and our helpful server (and her manager) comped us the prime rib part of the bill. It was the right thing to do!
Because of this excellent customer service and flexibility, we will go back to give them another try.

3 people celebrating 4 year olds birthday. Seated right next to the water on patio. It was absolutely beautiful there-yachts coming and going, breezy, NO BUGS, could not ask for a more perfect setting. The 4 year old loved watching the boats and thinking she could climb the big oak tree that is part of the patio, didn’t work of course, but she had fun. Staff was super friendly and our server outstanding. Free valet parking. Only thing that wasn’t perfect was my pasta-dish had good flavor and the shrimp was delicious but the pasta was overcooked. I’m Italian and al dente is the only way to eat pasta. Everything else was very good. Will be returning for sure!
PS: everything was very clean, all staff wore masks and tables all distanced. Restrooms spotless. So important during this trying time.

Bartender did not know what a Long Island Iced Tea was. Gave us both non alcoholic Arnold Palmers. Waitress took them back and they had Some liquor in them, but did not taste like the real deal.
Disappointed they had discontinued having Sushi at lunch on Wednesday. Was looking forward to that.
Husband loves their jalopena tartar sauce.

What a beautiful evening, sitting facing the river and just a bit of a breeze! Wait staff was efficient and professional as well as smiling and personality plus! Didn't rush us as we were two ladies celebrating our birthdays and were in no rush. Food was delicious, steak was perfectly cooked and the complimentary "birthday" cake was so good!

A really nice evening, thank you!!

As always, our dining experience was great! We were, however, disappointed that the Oysters Rockefeller were not on the menu at this time of year. We were really looking forward to those. In lieu of that, we were so happy to see the outdoor tables spread apart and people were wearing masks. Although Pier 22 has always been one of our go-to's, it will be our only go to throughout Covid. Thanks for making your restaurant a safe place to dine.

We were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary. We sat outside by the water and the weather couldn’t have been any better. Karrie was our server and she was great! 👍🏼
I had the prime rib which was cooked to perfection and was excellent. My wife had scallops, her favorite and said they were delicious. We started out with an appetizer of sashimi tuna also very good. Great meal, great server and a beautiful sunset!🌞
Great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion or any time for excellent food and service. 👍👍👍

The reason I gave a moderate rating for noise was, we were seated next to a rehearsal dinner for a wedding party. There were a number of children and while we are not against children as we have seven of our own grandchildren it did make our night out a little less peaceful than we had hoped for. My husband and I frequent your bar at least once a week to enjoy the view and change of scenery (especially with the way life has been for the past months) and appreciate the friendliness of bartenders Mindy and Megan. They are a great asset for your business.

Food is consistently done well and hot and/or cold depending on the dish. Friends had only been there for a drink before and were kind of guarded about eating there...and they are now fervent Pier 22 converts!

First time diners and, unfortunately, the weather wasn't conducive to enjoy the outdoor dining or view.

Limited breakfast menu before noon on Sundays until brunch officially begins at 11 AM. Food was very good and you can't beat $4 mimosas/bloodies.

Our server, Mark, was awesome: Prompt, professional and polite.

Will return in the future.

Pier 22 has a lovely view of the Manatee River and our table allowed us to watch the darkness fall, pretty despite a rainy day. Our server, Desiree, was absolutely top-notch, knew all the specials, gave good advice, and had a sense of humor, too! The rolls were house-made and delicious with the equally house-made herb butter. My husband and I shared the lollipop lamb chops, three -- the meat was excellent, the breading would have been better if it had been crisp. My husband had the artichoke crab pesto, which he loved; I had the Thai beef, good flavors but the description said "shaved beef" and these were little chunks, some still burdened with a bit of gristle! The peanut butter pie, of which my husband allowed me to grab one forkful, was superb. Each of us had a glass of wine,
