Description: In an enviable location by the water, The Pier Bar is somewhat of an institution in Cairns, known for our delicious wood fired pizzas and our relaxed Sundays and our big party events. The Pier Bar is open 11.30am until late every day, serving up sun, fun, lunch, dinner or just drinks!

Located next to the ocean with great views and surrounded by all the cafes and restaurants on the pier, this is a busy place. We came here twice for drinks, didn't eat so can't comment on the food. Popular venue with lots of people.

Good place to have drinks with friends by the water. Didn’t go to the restaurant so can’t rate that. Plenty of good restaurants at pier point so worth trying a few, specially the seafood boat restaurant if you can get on.

We had an amazing experience at The Pier Bar, it was a Sunday night and there was a live band playing all our favourite classics, there was great atmosphere and the staff were super friendly. Would recommend to everyone

On hearing and reading about The Pier bar a small group of us decided to catch up here. What was a great night turned bad very quick when we were advised we need to leave as we had been seated in the one place to long. It appears they are happy to take your money for food and drinks but not happy for you to sit in the one place. We did ask to speak with the manager but this could not happen

Dear Palmcove1,
I was very concerned to hear about your experience and would like to get to the bottom of what went wrong during your visit. I would genuinely appreciate if you could email me via amy@thepierbar.com.au and explain the situation to me. I will advise that as we accept bookings you may have been asked to move tables as we were honoring a pre booking on said area. Either way I am extremely sorry to hear that your night ended poorly and would like to personally apologize.

Kind regards,
Amy, GM
