My husband got sick after this dinner.
Salmon dinner had cold mash potatoes.
Too much zucchini/squash used as a side- very cheap, common vegetable!!

Another great meal! Wasabi tuna was perfection, jambalaya was satisfactory, penne with chicken was enjoyed and shrimp tempura was wonderful. Bread pudding was yummy! Service was spectacular. I can’t remember our servers name but she was relatively new and did a phenomenal job. 4 thumbs up!

Dines outdoors with beautiful view of the Manatee River and the boats. Our server was terrific and very attentive. Three of us had the seafood salad which was generously laden with four types of seafood. My only suggestion would be to turn down the recorded music at lunchtime. Much too loud for conversation and unnecessary with the beautiful setting.

Pier 22 was absolutely wonderful!! My husband took us for my birthday and when we arrived at our table, they had happy birthday confetti on the table. It was by far the best experience I’ve ever had. We will be returning with friends.

Just a comment, when we make a lunch reservation for 6, am I wrong that I expected to be taken to table? We were directed to to to outside stand , where we found no one, so just walked thru restaurant to find table. I have been there many times, but the 5 others had never been before and they all found it odd that the inside hostess did not do her job.

Outside seating comfortable, socially distant and attractive environment. Waitress was overwhelmed with tables, so it took time to get going with drinks and ordering. Her manner was brusque at best, glasses slammed on table, roll ups dropped, and at meals end it was evident that her shift was near end as it was rushed and an inconvenience to have dessert. Food quality was good, presentation good.

You need improving. Door windows are filthy. Carpet needs to cleaned or be replaced. One server challenged me and was very rude if we could sit in the tent area reserved for those with reservations. I told her I checked with the hostess before moving and she gave me the OK to move. Food was adequate. Quality has suffered. Won’t be back for a while.

Can't beat the location, outside along the riverfront. That was the high point. Service rather spotty, an unpleasant wait for drinks but then entrees came within minutes of getting the salads so not good there. Martini came without the olives, long wait for them, beer came without the offer of a glass. Food was good overall but not equal to the price. There seemed to be a staff shortage causing the inconsistent service.

We ate on the outside, not the patio and it was perfect. Weather, food, service all wonderful. We were not rushed and were able to sit long past lunch and visit and enjoy.

We experienced another very nice dinner and evening. The food for our party of 4 was excellent, the service was top notch, the outdoor dining area was spacious and comfortable, and the sun cooperated and provided a spectacular sunset.

We go here every year for our anniversary. However, this year was the first year that I was disappointed by the food. While it was presented beautifully, my prime rib lacked seasoning and therefore taste. My husband enjoyed his fish and pasta dish but was sick later that evening. Something was definitely off that night.

We had a great meal at Pier 22. The server was very attentive. There was a birthday in the party. He brought a complimentary piece of cake with candle. My young daughter loved blowing out the candle. Cant say enough good things about the restaurant. Hopefully next time we will be able to enjoy the outside patio.

The food was such a disappointment. The appetizer was over cooked. One of our guest had a hamburger ordered welldone. The burger came out med rare. The waiter Chaddy was a poor excuse for a waiter. Couldn't get refills on drinks. Spend you money someplace else that wants your business and food much better.
