Thank You Message From PIER 22 Executive Chef Greg Campbell

We're emphatically grateful to our fantastic guests that continue to support our restaurant with every lunch or dinner reservation and every vote for PIER 22 in contests like the Herald-Tribune's Reader's Choice Poll. We're more fortunate than most; at PIER 22 our guests are more than patrons you're part of the family, and we want you to feel at home whenever you dine with us.  It is with great satisfaction and an incredible sense of duty that we accept 11 Reader's Choice awards in food and drink categories like Best Waterfront Dining, Best Brunch, Best Sushi and Most Romantic Restaurant. 
When you visit the PIER 22 restaurant, one of our private dining venues or any of our special-event spaces we hope that you'll find yourself in a place where Old-Florida still exists—a place where scratch-cooked meals and Southern hospitality are the foundation for all that is right with the world. Our success is built on a commitment to quality and service that just won't quit, and our goal is to curate only the best possible guest experiences. We thank you for the opportunity to keep earning your business, and we appreciate our fans for recognizing us as one of Manatee's best restaurants and caterers.

Young Love In Old Manatee

Young Love In Old Manatee
Young Love In Old Manatee 
From classmates to soulmates, Hunter Knuckles and Anna Sams share the most adorable and surprising "How We Met Story." Engaged before twenty years old and forever grateful for the Manatee High School drama performance that initially brought them closer together--these two kids share an incredibly unlikely narrative for this day and age: they're high school sweethearts!
Their courtship has been in the works for the past three years, and they've been talking about marriage for nearly their entire relationship. The hurry to make it official was prompted when Hunter received orders that he would be serving the Marines in Okinawa, Japan for the next two years! 
The Proposal 
Bradenton, Florida has a profound significance for the couple. It's where they grew up and fell in love. The locale was an especially important factor for Hunter as he considered where he would propose. After conducting careful research, Hunter surprised Anna with a magical waterside dinner at PIER 22, the landmark restaurant and venue in the heart of downtown Bradenton, Florida; he upped the wow factor when he got down on one knee as the sun set over the Manatee River. "I'm a native around here, and I've seen the sunset from just about every angle around town, the sunset was absolutely stunning... that night and Anna was gorgeous," Hunter said. "She had her suspicions," Hunter affirmed. "Our first Christmas together, he gave me a promise ring, Anna remembered... and for it to finally be official is really cool. It's still the glowy stage, and I can't stop staring at my ring," she giggled. 
Hunter had been planning to ask for weeks, and he was anxious to pop the big question that night, but what truly had him sweating was earlier when he went to ask Anna's father for her hand. "He was happy I asked, but I was really nervous," Hunter said. 
They've Set A Date!
These two crazy kids are getting married! April 13, 2019.
Marking The Occasion
Anna and Hunter's waiter filmed the entire proposal, and when PIER 22 restaurant owner, Hugh Miller, heard the wonderful news, he offered to help the newly engaged couple with spreading the word. At the insistence of Hugh Miller and the PIER 22 events team, Hunter and Anna returned to the restaurant days later for an engagement photo shoot. Their engagement took place on a Friday, and Knuckles took off to Japan the following Wednesday.

5. The Friendly City & A Wonderful Community
PIER 22 is incredibly happy to make Bradenton our home. Giving back to our community is part of our daily mission to never stop improving. Bradenton is known as the Friendly City, and it is easy to see why. The outpouring of support during the 2016 PIER 22 Toys For Tots Drive warmed our hearts.

 The incredible levels of participation during Brunch On The Bay, where PIER 22 & their partnering culinary students built and served more than 895 capicola eggs benedict, helped to raise $21,356 for education. In late 2016, the unstoppable crowds at the Bradenton Blues Festival, sponsored in part by PIER 22, contributed to the funding of Bradenton’s youth, art, and music programs. 


4. Recipes from Scratch
PIER 22 observed Homemade Bread day and the start of the 2016 bread making season with a behind-the-scenes look at the delicious journey every PIER 22 dinner roll takes before arriving at your table. The PIER 22 menu focuses on fresh ingredients. From our housemade sauces and several scratch-cooked menu items, our guests recognize PIER 22 as the authentic waterfront dining restaurant where there is no substitution for quality. Our fresh baked bread and housemade Boursin butter make it clear that good things come to those that wait, and while the process of fresh baked bread can take hours, we've spliced it down to a mouthwatering 2 minutes of video that we hope you enjoy.



3. Bar Wars
Friendly competition helps drive us all forward. The PIER 22 ultimate bartender showdown, encouraged creativity and inventiveness. Participating bartenders along with their specialty cocktails made their debut throughout the games. With your votes tallied, it became clear that no one could match Brittany's Razzmopolitan. The tart concoction was featured in a Sarasota Herald-Tribune article and is due next to appear as romantic Valentine's Day cocktail February 14, 2017.

2. Manatee Holiday Boat Parade
Every year, the holiday boat parade makes us feel like a little kid again. 2016 stood out due to the record number of captains that participated along with the thunderous cheering from the crowds! 


1. An Incredible Waterside Thanksgiving
We've said it before, and here we go again, every day is a day worth celebrating at PIER 22. But there's something extra special about Thanksgiving on the water in downtown Bradenton. For turkey day 2016, families enjoyed a traditional meal without the cooking or the clean up and Executive Chef, Greg Campbell, said that he was "happy and humbled to be a part of the way Bradenton celebrates the holiday."  

PIER 22 is opened 365 days a year. Special menus and events take place Christmas Eve/Day & New Year's Eve/Day; we also have rooms to fit every occasion; we even offer to-go and offsite catering!
