Steamship Pier Bar & Barbeque, Vermont Waterfront Restaurant

The Steamship Pier Bar & Barbeque, A Vermont Waterfront Restaurant

The Pier Bar is located on the North Hero House Steamship Pier directly on Lake Champlain. In the years before the Island Line Railroad was built in 1903, guests arrived by Steamship for their summer stay. 

The Pier Bar & Grill is housed on a blue stone patio under a large white tent with water on 3 sides and a commanding view of the Lake Champlain Islands and the Green Mountains beyond. The new & improved Pier Bar will now serve casual, authentic Barbeque fare along with some of our Signature Favorites like our famous butter-poached Lobster Rolls. Guests can arrive by boat, car or even SEAPLANE.

The North Hero House has installed shallow water buoy markers as indicated on the image below. When approaching or departing from the marina at the Pier DO NOT GO BETWEEN THE TWO WHITE AND ORANGE BUOYS. This is a shallow area. Always approach or depart to the south or north of these markers.



The Steamship Pier opens Friday,  May 27 for the 2022 season. We will be open weekends until Father’s Day. Hours will be Friday, 4 to 8PM and Noon to 8PM on Saturday and Sunday

Pier Bar and Barbeque is first come, first served. 
Parties of 8 or more can call ahead to be added to the Waitlist

We are very pleased to tell you that we will be adding authentic barbeque to the Pier Bar Menu this summer.  Our “Pit Master” Chef Dan will be operating our new commercial smoker and 5 foot grill to offer delicious Ribs, Brisket & Chicken.
