Pier Restaurant & Bar
Our signature dishes include our Hot and Cold Seafood Platter (for one or two) and our Chilli Bug and Prawns.
We also cater for non-seafood lovers, with a variety of dishes to suit every palette. We are vegetarian and vegan friendly and always try our best to cater for other dietary requirements where possible.
We look forward to seeing you.
Great food the seared Scollops was a highlight best food we have had in recent memory
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
The best seafood platter we have ever had in Townsville. Lovely and fresh, and not simply made up of fried seafood from a box and chips.
The food is great, however it is a little on the expensive side. Avoid buying beer.
Excellent food, great view and great service very friendly and helpful staff
The food and service were great however, we booked an outside table and weren’t seated outside. And also there was a function inside that made the restaurant quite noisy. Also food was great but over priced
We had our wedding night here. Staff were fantastic. Nothing was a problem. Every request was able to be accommodated.
The food was beautiful and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed their dishes.
The seating was arranged so there was plenty of elbow room for all and everyone could talk to and hear everyone else.
We highly recommend The Peir for a romantic dinner or a group celebration of a special day.
A big Thank you to the staff and management of The Pier for making our special night so wonderful.
fantastic food and service except that we had to wait for spoons for dessert. Lovely setting and amazing layout and presentation of food.
Beautifully relaxing with lovely boat and water views, well you’re actually over the water. Great food and perfect cocktails
Food was delicious. Lovely wine also. Atmosphere felt a bit like we were sat on a glass walled boat. Could hear thumping bass from a function over the road which wasn't the best but didn't impede on our night too much. Overall very nice.
The serve and food was outstanding enjoyed our evening.
Excellent table overlooking the water, efficient service
Amazing atmosphere, service and food. Overall a wonderful experience.
It was the perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We were seated at a table overlooking the water and the stunning sunset. Food and service was excellent. We would recommend it to anyone wanting somewhere to celebrate a special occasion.
Excellent restaurant. Great location, ambience, service. I'd certainly go back again. Only recommendation would be a little more creative with the hot n cold seafood plater for 2 otherwise it's just a very expensive fish n chips.
Did not have cafe patron and didnt know what it was.
Good food and service, nice ambiance. Overall a very nice restaurant but on the expansive side. This is a place to go to celebrate an occasion, not on a regular base (unless you have lots of money)!
Whenever my husband and I visit Townsville from Sydney we make sure to dine at “Pier Restaurant and Bar”, usually twice! Fantastic spot, great view, friendly and attentive service. The menu focuses on seafood but not exclusively so. We always choose from the seafood dishes as the quality is always top notch. Can’t wait to visit again soon!
