The Pier Restaurant
The Pier Restaurant was built and opened in 1994 built on an old railroad pier that in the past connected the city of Quincy to the west. The restaurant is cantilevered from the shore to that old railroad pier, and with its location guests at lunch or dinner get a great view of river life. While dinning guests enjoy watching local wild life or just enjoy a sunset while the Mississippi rolls by. In the summer of 1999 after a short restructuring, The Pier reopened with a new partner, Richard Cole a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and American Culinary Association Certified Executive Chef. In the last eleven years of the restaurant's renaissance, the concept of quality service and guest satisfaction has been established along with creative menu items using locally grown certified organic produce and only the freshest products available. The cuisine is what we like to call Midwestern with a Twist, specializing in fresh seafood, steaks, chops, and pastas served in creative ways while still keeping to our roots.
A friend and myself were over at Springfield for the Motorcycle races on Labor Day weekend. We went for a ride on Friday morning and ended up in Quincy. We asked a convience store clerk where a nice restaurant was and he directed us to The Pier. When I walked in I thought hey, we're in the wrong place. After settling in, we both ordered the Mahi Mahi blackened with ruisuito (sp) and asparagus. I had never had any ruisuito (sp) but quickly found out that this was one of the best meals I have had in my life. (67) Windows were dirty, but waitress explained why. We understood riding bikes what bugs can do. I plan to call them and find out (if they will tell me) how to make that ruisuito (sp) Don't care if it is mis-spelled, it was great. Thanks for the great meal and good service. (Would have liked to have a re-fill on our tea.

The food was NOT good. The salad was like eating leaves off a tree. (I really think they were maple leafs!) I ordered shrimp ling and was served a small amt of noodles that was swimming in oil and a few shrimp that were not throughly devained. Potatoes were burnt. Extremely over priced! We were charged $2.00 for extra bread. You could barely see the view for the dirty windows. Would never eat there again!
Not worth the money. They sold cards for $49 to where you could use it once a month for a year to receive half off a meal if you purchase one at regular price. Worst purchase I've made! I let everyone else use my card so I don't have to go there! Food is overpriced for what you get. Example: I purchased Fet. Alfredo w/ shrimp for about $15. I got about two scoops of pasta and four small shrimp. It was ridiculous!
