The Pier Restaurant & Tiki Bar in Rye

During the week, my wife walked our dog down the Rye Playland boardwalk and thought it would be fun to check out this new place on the water.

We went tonight (Saturday) and that was a huge mistake. No reservations. 45 minute wait and counting. Although there is no smoking in the restaurant itself, there is some serious smoking right outside the place and the 20 or so outdoor tables -- I felt like I was standing in a smoke stack.

The hostess kept saying the kitchen was "backed up" and it looked like general pandemonium.

Really high prices for what they were serving, too -- the fried shrimp platter was $24.

Although the water setting was really nice, my daughter was choking on the smoke just waiting for them to call us, so we bagged it and went to Burger, Shakes & Fries.
