I visit Pier 1 regularly. It's always refreshing to chill out with good food and good company. No need to book just turn up and enjoy.

Came here for lunch after our flight and on our way to Negril. Beautiful view!! Lunch specials were reasonable and delicious. We had the jerk chicken and red bean soup. Portions were plentiful and food was good. Would come back if we were in the area.

We visited pier 1 for a meal as we fancied a change from our hotel, the food was great and reasonably priced and the staff were excellent. It is a stunning setting and watching the sun set over the sea was beautiful, when we go back to Jamaica this place will be top of our list to revisit !

We always go to Margaritaville when we go to Jamaica, but we changed it up this time we decided to check out Pier 1. They have a dress code of no sandals for men, so the bachelor that we were going out to party with couldn't even come into the club. So 4 people in our party couldn't come inside.... More

I order the BBQ Bacon Burger plus extra bacon for $1.25 and I only got 2 small strips of bacon and no extras... My friend didnt get any bacon at all. Also the bun was pretty dry... I enjoy the drinks though

Pier 1 is Montego Bay's most pulsating open-air Seafood Restaurant, Bar and Entertainment Center that has been in operation since 1986. It is located on a picturesque peninsula in the heart of the bay allowing diners the perfect view for watching the cruise liners disappear into a brilliant sunset. Our restaurant is well known for its fusion of the intoxicating Jamaican Flavors by offering a wide variety of seafood dishes including the Pier 1 Lobster, our famous Coconut Shrimp and the Grilled Mahi-Mahi to name a few. For the lovers of the land, our menu captures the best of the Jamaican cuisine. From our perfectly Grilled Beef Tenderloin to the island favorite of Braised Oxtail, our vast menu has something for everyone. Like with our dishes, our four signature nights have found a way to fuse Jamaicans and Visitors by offering a unique entertainment package.
