There was a wait so we sat at the bar. Bartender got us drinks promptly but then we sat there a solid 10 min or so without having our order taken.

Not bad, but there are other restaurants with better seafood for the same price. Service was average as well.

We stopped in the Pier Market today for lunch on our first day visiting from the UK. We each had a different meal, blackened rick cod, swordfish, mahi mahi, and jambalaya and all were perfect. Very fresh and light and just right in the sunshine. We only had to wait 10 mins for a table at 1pm but stood in... More

Server was good, very attentive. Food came fast. A little noisy but it's just the atmosphere of the restaurant.

This has to be our all time favorite .Everything is fresh and full of flavor...Lots of garlic!, fresh sourdough bread. Clam chowder is light packed with clams. It has window seating so you can see and hear the sealions in the bay below. The plates portions are large and it offers beer ans wine. PIER MARKET wont disappoint

Kids did shrimp which was average but not great. Staff friendly and location outside sea lion's allowed quick bit before animal watching.
