We always looked forward to our stay at Lamer and one of the biggest reasons was this restaurant. We drove past a couple months back and still looking like foundation work. Pretty sad after a year already.

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.

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.
