A total list of Pier Park Restaurants

by March 22, 2012 • 19 comments

Updated 3/22/12

Pier Park has, in just 4 years, become one of the most iconic landmarks to grace the shores of Northwest Florida.  Literally hundreds of thousands of people (if not millions) visit this destination annually and Pier Park’s popularity is evidenced by the crowded sidewalks, shops and restaurants all year long.  The variety of creative gathering spaces, alcoves and fun places to shop, paired with beachy architecture make Pier Park, well fun!

This is an old post (literally 4 years to the day), but we’re republishing it because we’re updating it.  Since this was originally published in March of 2008, new places have been added and some places just didn’t make it.

Margaritaville’s food and atmosphere is awesome! Great fun sitting on the outer deck and watching the surfers. The conch fritters are to die for and the Volcanoe nachos are huge! It’s a new and exciting place and I’ll tell you, get your name in early! Or, go early. A busy Friday night you’ll find yourself with a 2.5 hour wait! So get your name in, and go shopping!

Gilligan loves MaryAnn will be performing at Margaritaville from 4:30-8:30 pm every Monday this summer starting in April! Come join us!
One of our faves on the menu is the BBQ bacon and cheddar burger — it’s awsome!!!

Guglielmo’s Italian Grill Awful food awful service. Food came out burnt. Waitress would not return to table and had to get the manager. The excuss was they were busy, but there was 2 waitresses to 6 tables. Then the manager would not get the waitress to refill drinks and would not do it himself.

Tootsie’s is also at Pier Park. The flagship store is in Nashville, TN
Kind of pricey, but wondrful food and drinks

Reggae J’s Island Grill is also incredible! They are just across from Margueritta Ville, and have a top deck overlooking the beach also! Awesome food, great service too. And, don’t forget Hook’d at the Pier! You can’t get closer to the beach than that, and their food and service is fabulous as well!

A Friend of mine was visiting from Nashville last week and we went to the Back Porch.. It was So Good..

Why isn’t Hook’d Pier Bar on this list? They have a fantastic atmosphere, the only restaurant with a beach view in pier park. Amazing food and great service………. Hmmmmm? 🙂 You should add this place and experience it for yourself too 🙂

We LOVE Hook’d, but it’s not in Pier Park, technically.

But I’m going to add it anyway because they’re awesome!

Great suggestion!

Thanks for the updated list Jason…. it will come in handy for our June Vacation. We have visited the Hofbrau Garden last year, it wasn’t a pleasant experience… sat there at our table 30 minutes no waitress, nothing so we bid them a good bye & went to The Back Porch… it was truly a fantastic meal! 🙂
Have a pleasant day!
