Chef Peter McCarthy, owner of Pier 5736, selects only the best of the catch of the day from Chicago's finest seafood purveyors. Buying in smaller quantities and having daily deliveries ensures that each cut is the best it can be. Whether you are looking for your seasonal favorites like Lake Perch, Trout or freshly caught Smelt or have a taste for a beautifully prepared Salmon, Stripped Bass or Tilapia, or want to satisfy a real hunger with a hearty Halibut, Shark or Marlin steak, Chef McCarthy has something good cooking.
What else makes Pier 5736 distinctive; we kept it in the neighborhood. Chef McCarthy believes you shouldn't have to battle the hassle, expense and formality of the downtown seafood restaurants just to get fresh, well prepared seafood. Set in a casual, intimate dining room with vintage posters from Chicago's Gold Star Sardine Bar, our staff of professionals provides a relaxed, inviting, family friendly atmosphere, where there is something for everyone, including kid friendly dinners and a full service bar.
Are you in the mood for a 5 lb. Maine lobster or Yellow Fin Tuna? Give us a call if you are looking for something out of the ordinary and we will gladly special order anything you want. We can usually accommodate special requests with a 48 hour notice, unless out of season or unavailable.
