As of March 26, very little construction has been done -- just the pilings. No progress in past 6 weeks, I wonder what the hold-up is?. At this rate I doubt that they will re-open until at least the fall, maybe not until 2018. It's unfortunate -- we like this place and will miss it until they re-open.

Great place but it's closed for a while (as of 1/1/2017) -- building torn down, they are building an all-new structure. I believe it will re-open under the same ownership, same chef, and staff. Don't know when but my guess is summer of 2017.

We visited The Pier House while vacationing in Wildwood Crest. This place was recommended to us by one of the employees where we stayed and it was an excellent choice! Our dinners were fabulous and we were not rushed. It was such a relaxing evening! Looking forward to our next visit.

Specials were a great food option choices. The menu has a great selection. Well worth the $$$. The drink specials were tasty Martini's. It was still busy for the time we went. (Halloween). Make reservations.

I visited there as a local and host to friends. Everyone was impressed with the service and quality of the food. They were from New York and could not imagine we had come so well established as a good food place.
