Settle in with a great glass of wine and a wonderful meal as you take in the stunning views of the Mississippi River at The Pier Restaurant in Quincy, Illinois.
Known for its tender steaks and flavorful seafood dishes, the restaurant’s menu focuses on local ingredients and organic produce. Chef Richard Cole – a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America and an American Culinary Association Certified Executive Chef – adds his own spin to timeless Midwestern fare: Think potato salad brightened with fresh basil.
And the German chocolate cake – a rich dark chocolate cake with warm coconut-caramel-pecan frosting inside a silky chocolate shell – is so decadent you’ll have to fight your tablemates off with a spoon.
