We love going to Pier 22 for their great food and atmosphere and views of the water. The Thanksgiving meal was not what we expected at all for the price. $35 a person. The turkey was dry and the sides were luke warm, and the pie was tiny and nothing to write home about, it was dry and tasteless like the turkey. Unfortunately we understand that you are cooking for a lot of people so we didn't complain to the waitstaff, after all it was Thanksgiving. If we do this again next year we will just order from the limited menu. We normally get great food at this restaurant, but this meal was disappointing.

Our server was terrific and we were happy with the COVID protocols. The Manhattan for $14.50 was ridiculously overpriced, and the pumpkin pie was over cooked. Otherwise, good food.

Our party of three opted for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner and it was superb. Turkey was moist and sides were flavorful. All three of us asked for a meal box because the portions were more than generous. We were impressed that our meals were hot without drying out the ingredients. Beautiful restaurant and good service. We definitely will be back.

We have dined at Pier 22 a number of times over the last few years. We chose to spend our Thanksgiving Day meal here and had the traditional Holiday Turkey Special. The food was delicious with a large plateful of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans and broccoli casserole followed by delicious pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream.

Brittany catered to each of our needs at our outside meal at a high-top table on such a beautiful cool afternoon.

Our waitress was fabulous. My husband loved his meal. My turkey was a bunch of skin. I didn’t enjoy it. We were seated on the side next to the docks. I would have loved to be seated where I could see the open water.

I got the roasted vegetables over linguini - the vegetables weren’t done enough and must have been marinated in balsamic vinegar and had a strong unfortunate taste.

We dined there a week ago and had such great food we decided to return. Tonight’s food was not nearly as good. The fish had clearly been frozen and the sauce was way too heavy. But most Of all, there was a wedding on the outdoor area and the bass blasted into the restaurant the entire meal. It was awful. It could have been so easily avoided by turning the speakers AWAY from the dining room. The food and the ambience were a huge disappointment. If they can’t ensure a top class dining experience during a wedding event, they need to close for the event.

The service was exceptional. Topped with creme brulee for dessert, the food was very good. Not inexpensive, but worth the splurge. Tables are socially distanced. Outside dining is available if there's no special event.

There were four of us at Pier 22’s Brunch today. We each loved our food and our waitress was very attentive. Personally I had the Jambalaya which was fantastic. You won’t go wrong if you get a reservation at Pier 22.

It was important to us to be able to eat outside with a older couple to reduce the risk of possible Covid issues. We have eaten at Pier 22 numerous times and always enjoy it!

And service were perfect. Atmosphere is usually great, we just had a table near the kitchen this time with no real view and was noisy, but
Still had a great meal!

Everything about our experience was great. Food was amazing. They claim to cook everything fresh, and it tasted like it. The outside patio was very comfortable. The service was perfect. Our waitress was from Ohio and grew up 10 minutes from where we live. She had the perfect balance between conversation and service. Most importantly, we are always hesitant where we go because of the pandemic. We felt 100% comfortable that they were doing everything to keep their patrons safe and healthy. Thank you for that.
