  • Pier One: Best Sushi Ever!

    The restaurant is basically three in one. They have a seafood menu, an upper class italian food and best of all sushi which just opened in November.
    The red dragon and fresh salmon is just delicious paired with saki.
    The night I went there were five or six sharks but the atmosphere was great and the food just wonderful.
    We went in the evening and watched the sunset and the ships coming in and leaving the harbour. The best view on the island the restaurant is right in the water.
    Great Decor.

    Favorite Dish: Sushi-Red Dragon , christmas and bahama mama

  • Pier One: AVOID at ALL COST

    by hoffmie Written Mar 27, 2010

    1. Shoney's-Quality Food
    Actually, this is being unfair to Shoney's Restaurants. Shoney's food is at least edible.
    2. Menu Misprints
    Be sure to ask if the description on the menu matches what you will actually receive. Numerous "Misprints." When you order an item and it arrives not as described, it's the customer fault. Just ask the manager who expects you to read minds.
    3. Items "Not Available"
    Call ahead to be sure there's actually food. When we arrived, snapper, grouper, and shark items were out. That's half the menu. Enjoy your popcorn shrimp off the kiddie menu!
    4. Pricey
    Do not expect to find ANY entree priced lower than $24.95. If you would like to pay that while you hold your nose to avoid tasting the food, be my guest. I did it once and should have read the negative reviews on a variety of websites before going.
    5. Sharks…Where?
    Don’t expect to see sharks…if the wind blows more than 5mph, anytime from November-April, or during shark mating season. Of course, the restaurant doesn’t tell you this until you’ve ordered and then look over the rail to see the staff attempt to feed the rocks and empty ocean.
    6. Service
    They get their 15% no matter what. We asked 6 times for a glass of water, SIX! The restaurant was practically empty.
    7. The Drive There
    We passed a number of other restaurants that the locals told us we should have gone to instead. Stop there before you drive all the way out to the harbor just to be disappointed.

    Favorite Dish: The burger I got from Zorba's after I vomitted at Pier One.
