Pier 7 Restaurant + Bar in North Vancouver
Pier 7 is an upscale seafood restaurant and bar situated right on the North Shore waterfront. Although the restaurant is in a stand-alone building, Pier 7 is related to the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier and The Lobby Restaurant which are on the other side of Shipbuilders’ Square just a 60-second walk away. In fact, the hotel and both restaurants are owned by the same local company.
The Pier 7 restaurant offers stunning views of Vancouver’s skyline from the Shipyards District. Tall windows provide natural light and scenery. The place also has a very popular covered outdoor patio that’s heated during cooler times of the year. In the summer, there is live music on three or so evenings per week.
Location and Hours
Pier 7 Restaurant + Bar is located at 25 Wallace Mews in North Vancouver. It’s in the heart of the city’s cultural and entertainment district. The restaurant is right by Shipbuilders’ Square, the Burrard Drydock Pier, and Shipyard Commons. It’s also just steps away from the Pinnacle at the Pier Hotel.
The restaurant typically opens at 11:30 am on weekdays and at 10:30 am on weekends. It usually remains open until late, especially in the summer, sometimes only closing at around midnight.

The last time we ate at the restaurant we had the mussels which came in a delicious white wine sauce. They were really good! We also had the burrata (cheese) appetizer, which was amazing.
