“Happened upon this great little place”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

We just happened to run across this little place and decided to try it out. The fish & chips were so fresh & tasty! Next time, we're planning to try the crabcakes and then purchase some fresh salmon to take home. It's a great little place that reminds us of being at Pike's Market in Seattle.

“Very fresh seafood, casual atmosphere, good feel about the place”
Reviewed 3 June 2011

The fact that this place advertizes itself as "next to Trader Joe's" gives you some idea. If your goal is fair pricing, great attitude, really good food and convenience give Pier 46 a try. Whether you want a seafood salad, fish and chips or cioppino, you will find standout versions here. We hear the ahi tacos are killer, but could only eat so much.

“One sentence? Just stop reading reviews and get your tail fin to Pier 46!”
Reviewed 26 February 2011

This place is great! A little bit of a 'shop' atmosphere, but those of us that love this place find it part of the charm. You can have a nice cold beer with your meal, or enjoy it outside, but not both. There just simply is no place they can legally let you do both, as the bistro tables outside are just across a 'public' sidewalk that no one walks down. This part is the state Beverage Control's doing, not much they can do there. The prices are also a little more than I usually pay for lunch, or 'take-out' type dinner for that matter. This is what happens when you get GOOD food, made by people who CARE about a getting you a good meal, and make it with fresh, high quality seafood.
Ok, so much for the 'bad', if you can call it that. This place is Aaaawesome! Just REALLY good seafood made in the old-school fish market way. The place is owner run, and it shows. There always seems to be a co-owner right there. The Clam Chowder and Ahî Tacos are personal favorites of mine. The special seafood quesadilla and chioppino hold their own as well. Or check the special board on the way in, and just order that, or throw a dart at the blasted menu and just enjoy what you wind up with. It'll be good.
Monday's All-You-Can-Eat Crab Feed is always busy, so I get it to go. Believe me, if you order one for everyone, there is NO WAY they'll finish it. And I'm a big guy with an appetite to match.
If you haven't tried it, try it. You'll be hooked.
WARNING: If you think chain's have good food, (Chili's, Applebees, Red Lobster, etc.), stay the heck away from places like this. It'll ruin your current dining habits, and you won't be happy with mediocrity anymore.
