We were starving after the ferry ride and Pier Bistro looked good from our quick search of the Sidney area. It’s located right along the docks beside the Seafood Market shop.
Sign out front promoting their happy hour (3:00pm to 5:00pm daily).
Menus on display out front.
Chalkboard outside promoting a few of their specials.
We came in for a late 2:00pm Friday afternoon lunch. The place was busy with all the old, retired grannies meeting up. They have a patio right out front but also a covered patio if you walk inside.
The menu is split into fish n’ chips, appetizers, soup, crab cake combos, salads, sandwiches and burgers & quiche.

Halibut & salmon quiche ($14.99)
Served with hollandaise on top and your choice of side. I went with their soup of the day, a salmon bisque.
Bisque was good but the quiche needed some seasoning and acidity.
It could have benefited from having a better crust.
Seafood clam chowder & crab cakes ($15.99)
A cup of chowder, two pan fried crab cakes and grilled pita. Their known for their clam chowder but we thought it was pretty bland.
It needed seasoning; we had to throw in some pepper, which I never do. The crab cakes were tasty. The sauce had a surprisingly nice kick to it. Pitas were wasted calories.
Get the crab cakes if you go. They clearly cater their food to the locals so keep that in mind if you’re going to go…
