    Our waiter, Dan, was professional, courteous and efficient. Nice ambiance(albeit a little high on the decibel level), terrific food. It was a dining experience that will cause my wife and I to return. My only real complaint was the drink prices were out of line. $13.00 for a bourbon and ginger is over the top.

    We were sadly disappointed, as we had been here before and the food was excellent. Calamari and escargot were very good, but pecan crusted halibut was dry and flavorless and the papardelle was just awful. It seemed to us a likely function of inexperienced cooks, so we’d probably give them another chance later on. The server was nice and comped the pasta. The place is lovely, and they will hopefully get their bearings again soon.

    We appreciate your feedback and are sorry the Halibut was not to your liking. We are happy you enjoyed the calamari and escargot. We hope to welcome you back in the future.

    Service was excellent, drinks were delicious and our server Kelsey was very attentive. She was the best!! Only minor issue was the busser, too busy with his girlfriend to refill our waters and clear dishes that our poor waitress was running double duty. Otherwise, ambiance, music and everything else were perfect!!
    The Pier HouseResponded on October 22, 2021
    Wow! Thank you for your review, we are thrilled you had an excellent experience with Kelsey. Sorry to hear your impression of the busser was not positive, we will address the issue with our team to improve. We hope to welcome you back again very soon!
