FAQS – Pier 290


  • Do we need a reservation?

    Reservations are recommended, however, we welcome walk-ins based on the availability of the time of day and season. We encourage guests with parties of 10+ to reserve tables early in the season as availability for large groups is limited. Please note that depending on the size of the party, your group may be split up into multiple tables next to each other. 

  • Can we request an outdoor table for our reservation?

    We do our absolute best to accommodate all outdoor dining requests, however, they are not guaranteed. Due to high demand outdoor seating requests may result in a wait, even with a reservation.

  • I was told there aren’t reservations available but I see open tables. Why is this?

    Staffing, high volume, and reservations may be the reason for this.

  • Is there a dress code?

    There is no dress code. Guests are required to wear cover ups over swimsuits, shirts, and shoes.

  • Can we do separate checks?

    We are able to divide evenly between 2-4 credit cards if needed. We do not separate checks on parties of 8+.

  • Do you allow dogs? Even in your outdoor areas?

    The FDA laws currently prohibit animals in restaurants unless the animal is a service dog providing specific tasks for an individual with a disability. Emotional support dogs will not be accepted. Please note that a manager will always follow up regarding a service dog brought into the establishment.
