We were pleasantly surprised by the view, food, and service at The Pier! My husband ordered the fish tacos, and I ordered the Triple Cheese Monte Cristo with fries. Both dishes were wonderful, and the meal cost less than $20. We will definitely return!

We had relatives in town and they thought the Pier would be the place to go. I had the Opah and it was okay but served over rice that as way over cooked with what looked like frozen vegetables. Two of our group had the meatloaf and they said it was too salty. One person had a chicken dish and... More

Thanks for the feed back sorry you were not happy with your dinners. we hope you will try us again in the future. We never use frozen vegetables in any of our dishes I believe you may have been confused with the fresh sautéed snow peas that we served with the coconut rice and Thai curry cream sauce over the...

Thanks for the review we usually go light on the salt using just enough to enhance the flavor of our dishes. on your next visit just let us know and we will cut back more or we can eliminate al together and you can add what you like at the table. Once again thanks for the kind review. More

Drove over to Quincy while visiting family in Kirksville. So glad we did. Wonderful view and great service at 2:00 in the afternoon on a Monday. French dip was the best I've ever had. My husband's lasagna was great. He really enjoyed the in house Italian sausage instead of plain ground beef. Already talking about a return trip this visit... More

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....

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
