The boardwalk experience isn't complete without breakfast at the Fishing pier. Delicious breakfast sandwiches. Huge pancakes. Good coffee. You won't leave hungry, that's for sure.

Yes Cash Only... But they have an ATM right next to the register. Great choice for an island breakfast. Try the Salmon omelet. One of our favorites.

Rick and Sue's adventure on 7 Mile Island began 27 years ago when they took over the Fishin' Pier Grille located on 32nd Street in Avalon. The husband and wife duo's love affair with restaurants still runs strong after all these years as they continuously enjoy seeing the familiar faces of returning customers as well as the new comers each summer. Rick and Sue's grown children, Nicole Jones and Eric Montanari, are happily joining their parents in this new adventure of opening the Fishin' Pier Grille South in Stone Harbor this upcoming Spring. The family is looking forward to bringing the same reputation of great taste, service, and charm to their new breakfast spot.
