Great ambience and views which compliment the excellent food!
Very friendly staff. Efficient service. Food was very tasty. Varied menu to cater for different tastes. Lovely view.
A very enjoyable night. Waitress was very pleasant, accommodating and efficient. Menu provided plenty of options, food was well presented and tasty. Desserts were particularly delicious.
Absolutely delicious as always, and fast. Mosquitoes outside were unfortunate but the citronella candles were on, so not anyone's fault. Maybe sandalwood sticks would work better?
Great food. Drinks were lovely. Service at the end of the night was very slow. We left before dessert despite wanting to order....they simply took too long. The restaurant was most.y empty so it was not because they were busy
Fast and friendly. Our wattress was lovely. The view relaxing. Scallops divine and the platter perfection.
Don't know why I haven't been here before but we'll certainly be back
We had a celebratory dinner for my wife’s birthday. The food was delicious and generous. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would have given full marks but for the paying experience. I found it hard to believe that with a bill of around $250 that I was informed that there was a charge for daring to use my credit card, Amex over $5 and Visa nearly $4. I settled with Visa but will probably never go there again. I don’t understand such stinginess. I would recommend the restaurant but tell them to take lots of cash,
Absolutely. The chilled seafood platter was really why we visited Townsville!
We totally enjoyed our meals, all the courses for both meals were superb and the service we received was top notch. We will be back soon.
Great service, amazing food, little expensive but you get what you pay for
Absolutely beautiful food, and a very nice spot to take a date.
All round excellence and fine dining
Food was better than great- best food in Townsville at the moment. Wil not go out to other restaurants as the service is poor and the food terrible or skimpy. Bring back the seafood bisc. It was to die for- from an steak eating red blooded Aussie. The tables along the walls with chairs looking directly over the water is a great idea. We really enjoyed the experience. A little more distance between the tables would be good is the only cristism I may have-as the staff walk all over the room. Mabye a few more greenry pots as room dividers would be perfect.
Absolutely stunning. My partner and I came here for dinner for my 21st birthday and it was amazing. Great food, great view, great scenery, astounding service. Will definitely be back again
Food was fantastic, Service was very friendly and didn't wait long for our meals. Great Night out.
Great food the seared Scollops was a highlight best food we have had in recent memory
The staff were very pleasant but a little bit too much attention at times.
The table was not stable.
The food was very nice a little bit pricey.
What a great night we had at the Pier. Food was amazimg and service was impeccable. Thank you for a fantastic night.
Wow this restaurant has really improved since our last visit 2 years ago. Definitely worth a visit and we would return!
Excellent food. Excellent service. Excellent value. Excellent outlook.
The best restaurant in North Queensland. Great chef, great service, great location and worth every cent.
Amazing food, fantastic service and beautiful wine.
This was an amazzing night out with the family. We sat outside and loved the view and the staff who served us. Could not have been any more perfect. Thankyou so much
Never disappointed when I leave the Pier. Great ambiance, service, food and view
Thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience. The food was outstanding and we had two vegetarian diners at our table as well. They loved their meals. Congratulations Chef😋
The food was so yummy we will be back, we had seafood chowder and chili bugs with prawns.
Food fantastic, seafood chowder to die for. Quite busy but service great, just a little noisy. A great night to celebrate 3 wedding anniversaries.
Very friendly service staff and makes sure guests needs and orders are attended to promptly. Excellent experience.
Thank you so much Jason!
Service was a mess, which was such a shame as had been looking forward to going here for months. The people who arrived 20 mins after us were served first, we had to ask 3 seperate staff how many oysters were on the cold share platter in case we needed to order more as they either didn’t come back to us or when they did they didn’t know the answer. Food was ok but was dampened by the confusing and disorganised evening.
Thanks for your feedback Bryan. We do have some new team members who are still learning the ropes, but I will make sure I incorporate your comments into their on-going training. Have a Merry Christmas. Cheers, Lily
Fine dining is never value for money, but if money is not a concern, the Pier restaurant is definitely a great place to dine regularly. For most normal people though, the cost of one meal for two was equivalent to the cost of one week's groceries for two.
Highly recommended. Beautiful food in a nice relaxed environment.
Fine dining experience, beautiful setting, the food was fresh and delicious. We will definitely return. Highly recommended for a special occasion
Small range of drinks and they keep the red wine cold in the fridge.
Food and service were excellent, was noisy, but that was due to a big function that was there.
Beautiful restaurant with amazing scenery and lovely friendly staff
Absolutely brilliant!! Splendid night n the food was second to none will definitely be back. A big hi five for our waitress Sue what a legend!! Keep up the good work guys
Excellent service by Maria - never waiting for a drink or service. The meal was beautiful. Will be back
We enjoyed the early bird special while watching a sunset over Castle Hill with a mild ocean breeze to keep us cool. When the lights came on inside, staff turned on aircon and closed windows to avoid insects. Important for us was the very reasonable prices for a restaurant of this calibre. Prawn entree was outstanding and serving sizes generous. We'll be back with friends next time.
The relaxed feeling of The Pier was absolutely awesome, i would totally recommend trying this as the staff were welcoming, the food was amazing, the wait between courses wasn't to long. Over all the ambience of The Pier was delightful, the scenery was just stunning. Cant wait to go back and try some other dishes.
Was dissapointed with the food I had heard good things so it might have been an off night for them I ordered bruschetta and it came on huge slabs of bread with very little olive oil Mains were over cooked and not presented well at all Service was really good however and hats of to the staff for making that side of things fun
