Chef knows all about the art of cooking and preparation. Sorry to hear that the original establishment has closed and is in the process of rebuilding. Hope the new Pier House is every bit as good as the old one.

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.

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.
