Pier 59, West Side Hwy., New York, NY, 10011
at 18th St.
Terrible food, equally terrible service.
By CynicalSunshine5 on 3/27/2009
We were at the adjacent driving range at Chelsea Piers when the we decided to grab a bite. We thought it would be easy enough to just stop into the brewery next door - it looked beautiful! Our waiter came to take our orders - and then we never saw him again... Another guy came to bring us our food - the nachos we ordered were disgusting and we barely touched them - greasy chips, a little cheese (which was hard), a dollop of sour cream and salsa and what I think was supposed to pass as guacamole - it was just gross. Then our entrees came - overcooked chicken on a bun, no condiments, and soggy fries. We ran out of drinks and our waiter never came back to ask us if we needed refills. When it came time to get the check I had to stand up and walk around the restaurant to flag down ANY employee - a bus boy, who found our waiter and managed to get him to bring us the check. ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE dining experience all around. Next time we hit up the driving range, we're leaving the piers to eat. Never again.
Come for the view, not the food.

Do not in anyway, shape, or form, make this a destination for the food. Come here only to sit outside on the water and have a beer. Otherwise, look elsewhere. The food is absolutely terrible and ridiculously over priced - and I mean, ridiculously over priced especially for such poor quality. The service is horrendously slow and incompetent. The beer is ok. However, if you can manage to sit out in the sun next to the water, it's not a bad place to spend an afternoon. Just don't come hungry... even the appetizers aren't worth it, unless you only eat over priced, over cooked, fried food.
Old reviews, I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Obviously these reviews are old. They revamped their menu and my friends and I loved the food! The beers weren't too shabby either ;-)
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
