First of all, I don’t like most seafood restaurants because their fried seafood tastes so greasy. But my kids really do. So we tried Pier 51. WE LOVE THIS PLACE. The food was better than any seafood restaurant we have ever been to and we have eaten at all the local seafood places as well as the chains. I had the fried combo platter and it was an overly generous portion. The fish was light and flaky and the shrimp was crunchy and delicious. It was simply perfect. I asked my husband, who had worked in a Fish camp in high school why Pier 51’s seafood was so much better. He says that the key to the best seafood is to change the oil frequently so that must be what Pier 51 is doing. The kid’s portions were large also and my kids are big eaters. Also, the staff is friendly and attentive. It has a great family atmosphere. Last, the restaurant is spotless…including the restrooms. Give this place a try!

Wonderful place to eat

My family and I have been regular weekly customers of Pier 51 Seafod Restaurant for several years. We have always had a good experience there. The food is always well prepared, portions are generous, and the wait staff is very courteous, fast, and professional. The restaurant offers a wide variety salad bar. Their new menu offers large and small portions favoring senior citizens and smaller appetites. The items for children are excellent - especially the spaghetti and the chicken fingers. Our children always look foward to going there. I would recommend Pier 51 to anyone.

Seafood for dinner?

Don't come here if you have a hefty appetite. The dinner portion is small but of course not expensive. And the services isn't good. We waited forever to get greeted and even longer just to get our drinks and hush puppies.

Adherence to Stupid Policies

I have just been forced to experience an achievement of excessive ignorance. My wife and I went into Pier 51 in Pineville, NC to get a quick bite to eat after some shopping. This is a seafood restaurant in a strip mall over by Burlington Coat Factory. I still eat seafood sometimes but my wife has been a vegetarian her entire life. Seeing how there was nothing on the menu that didn't have meat (other than the salad bar), she decided to order the Grilled Cheese sandwich from the kids menu. Usually this is no problem but not today.

The waitress looks at us and says ""No, that is for kids but let me check with the manager"". She goes back in the kitchen then returns and says ""No, you can't order a grilled cheese. That is for children"". This is quickly becoming a Larry David moment as I ask, ""Why? What's the difference? Is there something in this selection that is harmful to adults but not children? Just pretend she's a kid and bring the sandwich."" I must point out that this particular selection of two pieces of bread and a piece of cheese is already $4.95 which must have a profit margin of something like 5,000%. We were not upset, just blown away by the extreme absurdity of this situation.

Though I am shocked by the stench of the horrible business acumen of this 'manager', I offer to pay extra for the grilled cheese. Extra! The thing is already outrageously overpriced! Again, the waitress looks at us with a straight face and says ""No, that is only for kids"". Now, I'm looking around waiting for Peter Funt to pop out and say ""Smile, You're on Candid Camera"" but he never does! I should also mention the fact that I was ordering something expensive so how they choose to adhere to such a ridiculous policy is beyond me.

Giving up, she asked for spaghetti with no meat in the sauce. The waitress again has to check with the 'manager'. She returns and says we can only order the adult spaghetti which has meat and denied us the meat-free spaghetti which was available (only for kids).

We left in amazement and went to Pike's where she ordered from the kids menu... no problems.

So... Einstein manager over at Pier 51, Pike's got my $40, not you, because you are an idiot. I might add Pike's was packed with a 20 minute wait while Pier 51 had 3 customers.
