Pier 701 Restaurant and Bar, Piermont

Pier 701 is a casual, family-friendly restaurant that offers exceptional, year-round views of the Hudson River and Tappan Zee Bridge. It’s also home to one of the most unique outdoor dining spaces in the Hudson Valley—a beach! Sand was brought in to build the Pier 701 beach between the deck and the edge of the river and seats up to 40 people. Guests can order from the full menu while taking in the river views from their Adirondack chairs, cold drink in hand, surrounded by tiki torches. Kids entertain themselves with beach games while parents dine. 

Executive Chef and owner Dennis Whitton has created a menu of Mediterranean- American dishes that are updated with the seasons. In the spring/summer, Chef Whitton highlights the freshest seafood around, with items like the warm, Vietnamese-style spicy Screaming Oysters and the popular Seafood Tower. Sunday brunch features classics like buttermilk pancakes and eggs Benedict, and flavorful seafood dishes such as the crunchy tuna tartare and grilled Spanish octopus. Don’t leave without trying one of Pier 701’s signature desserts, like the thin-mint tart or lemon ricotta cheesecake topped with strawberry-rhubarb compote.

In addition to the beach, Pier 701 has an expansive outdoor deck and energetic tiki bar, which accommodates up to 225 guests. Table umbrellas provide shaded relief on hot summer days. The tiki bar has its own menu, offering small seafood plates, burgers, wings, and more. Not to be missed are the lobster sliders with sriracha mayonnaise. Happy Hour specials at the tiki bar run throughout the week.

The beach closes at the end of September, but Pier 701 encloses and heats the deck and tiki bar, so guests can continue to enjoy riverside dining during the fall months. The restaurant has docking for five boats, with more spaces available after 5 pm at the dock next door. Valet parking is available. Reservations for outdoor seating are highly recommended Thursday through Sunday in the summer.
