Description: A tribute to the maritime heritage of beautiful Harbor Springs, Stafford's Pier Restaurant offers true waterfront dining, quite literally, as the Pier Restaurant was built on original pilings over the harbor. The Pier's Pointer Room overlooks the historic yacht basin while offering visitors a superb choice of fine cuisine. A local meeting spot, the Wheelhouse Lounge is open daily for cocktails with a complete menu. Dudley's Deck is without question the most famous outdoor dining spot in northern Michigan and the place to be each and every Fourth of July. Along with spectacular views, the Pier notes an impressive culinary team, lead by Executive Chef Rob Sargent. The Pier is always the center of action in Harbor Springs all year long. And especially when summertime hits, there is probably no more popular nightspot in town.

Really enjoyed sitting outside for a delicious lunch. Tasty whitefish & perch sandwiches. Excellent service. A local store owner recommended for dining & he was right on!

Before the Pier was remodeled, the food and ambience were OK but nothing special. Since then, both have taken a leap forward!
The Pier has become a regular and reliable resource for an excellent meal.
