It’s amazing that I haven’t previously written about Pier 57 at 7376 Oswego Road in Liverpool, which has become one of my favorite restaurants in the area, but I did include them in one of my earliest posts when I was talking about best pizza in Liverpool. Since it’s a restaurant I go to at least once a week, most of the time twice a week, I figured it was about time to talk about them here.

Last year I decided I needed to find another restaurant that I could go to where the people knew me when I came in and pretty much knew what I wanted to get. I already had Friendly’s, but I don’t really consider that as a restaurant as much as… well, I’m not quite sure what to call it. I guess I’d have to say the atmosphere is much different, the desserts are much more dangerous, and thus I force myself not to go there as often.

I decided on Pier 57 because I loved the atmosphere and I had always enjoyed my meals there. What finally sold me was the pizza that I mentioned before, which is a very thin pizza that, for the most part, they cook perfectly every time I go. When they don’t, they always take it back, and actually it’s gotten to the point where the waitstaff there already knows what I won’t eat and won’t even bring it out; that’s the type of service I wanted.

I’ve talked about the pizza enough but that’s not all they have that I like. I’m in love with their chicken and biscuits special, which also comes with mashed potatoes and gravy. It’s not always on the menu unfortunately but when it is, I’m in love.

There’s also their friend haddock and french fries, which is wonderful and is my wife’s favorite meal when she decides to go with me. It’s never overcooked and it’s a very sizable portion, even at lunch.

Overall, it’s a warm atmosphere, the people working there are wonderful, and as a regular I’ve started to meet some other regulars, one of whom I convinced to try the pizza. They also have a bar and a large room for different functions, as I once went to a Liverpool Chamber luncheon there. That room easily fits 50 people, although the day I was in there we had close to 75 people and we fit, but it wasn’t overly comfortable at that point.

So there you have it, one of my favorite restaurants, and as I put out on Twitter often, I go for lunch a lot. Oh, did I mention the nutter butter peanut butter pie? Anyone is invited to join me there for lunch when I go, and if you don’t come, I guess I’ll just have to keep reading. 😉
