We discovered The Pier online while traveling near Quincy, and made a detour to dine there. Glad we did! Beautiful setting, comprehensive menu, and attentive, great service from our server Eric. All items are made fresh from scratch, including a range of delicious dressings. I was able to customize my salad, and when I was curious about a side dish,... More

Took my mother there while in town recently for a belated Birthday Dinner with my family and enjoy the meal and service....Everyone's meals were on point to include the steak (local grass fed beef), pork tenderloin, coconut shrimp and pasta dishes. Full bar, wine list and beer available. Service and view were both great....

I have only been here for rehearsal dinners but both were very enjoyable. The one I attended more recently, is much fresher in my mind but the food was amazing. We had prime rib, chicken, and catfish. All so so so good. Especially the catfish. I am not a prime rib gal but I enjoyed it here. It was an... More

Passing through on a Tuesday night. Good food, good service and a decent view. Facilities need help- this place has a nice view but the outside of the windows need cleaning and the general appearance of the facility is run down and the elevator smells bad (not a good first impression).

Yea the windows once again are a problem but if you look you can see why. There is just no practical way to clean them, it seems it was a design flaw buy the builders. Glad you enjoyed your visit and we hopr to see you again. More

Really enjoyed the Sunday brunch. Prime Rib was very good. Had other options but I enjoyed the prime Rib the best. Service was good and friendly. Best to get there around noon for best and freshest choices. We come into town a few times a year and this is a place I like to enjoy a nice Sunday brunch at... More

I was touring with a large group of friends in my Corvette Club. So, we divided into two tables of 16 or so. This sort of thing is always a scramble for the wait staff, even at an upscale restaurant. But, our wait handled everything with skill and good humor. It was appreciated and duly rewarded. I had pasta Alfredo... More

Thank you for the kind review and we are glad your group chose us for dinner. One of the reasons our pastas are better than most every where else is we roll and cut fresh noodles every day, we never use boxed or dried noodles in any of our dishes in or dining room lunch or dinner. I am glad... More

Menu is limited, but well balanced. I usually end up with one of the pasta choices. The wine options are pricey, but good quality. Servers are all excellent.

Lovely setting and great food and service. Ambiance is what is all about. This is a lovely place for lunch or dinner. Staff is very attentive yet allows for time for visiting. The unique setting - actually on a pier over the Mississippi River - ensures that the setting is picturesque and provides good food and good value.
