The first sign of spring is the opening of West Pier. I really enjoy the cold cut sub and deep fried cauliflower. We usually get ours to go and park somewhere we can watch the boats go by.

The staff is fast on their feet and the food is excellent. The hamburgers are huge and definitely the best that I've ever had. This is a great place to go for lunch.

This is just your average mom and pop drive-in. They serve burgers, sub sandwiches, and chili. Also grilled cheese sandwiches. The subs are alright tasting, as is the chili. They also have shakes, which are alright. My husbands' favorite is the hamburgers, which he says taste very good. I usually order the grilled cheese sandwich. Just a nice, average place... More

They only have a handful of seats at the counter. There are what they called car hops (waitress) that come out to your car, take your order, then bring your food back. We had burgers, fries, and onion rings. My husband said it was worth the 5 hour drive just for the burger.

Wow! Is there such a thing as too much food? If you're going to the West Pier for any meal let me make the suggestion, think about sharing. The service was outstanding those servers literally ran from car to car. The burger was huge, the fries and onion rings gigantic. You definitely get your money's worth. This place came highly...

They actually the biggest burger I have ever eaten but don't order a double burger. We had so much food but it was delicious. We'll definitely go back and just order smaller quantities.

Fantastically thick and big burgers. The wait staff literally runs from vehicle to vehicle and then back to the building. Great view of the locks while you eat as well. Fries were a bit thicker than I prefer but that is personal preference. This place has ruined McDonald's and Burger King even more for me.
