  • We stopped just to walk the pier. The pier is clean and well kept. Everyone working there was friendly. This is a great place to visit when in Nags Head. It was a very windy day so noone was fishing. There is plenty of room for fishing and benches to sit on. Inside there is a small gift shop with souvenirs and snacks. Fishing licenses are sold here also. The cost is $2 per person and well worth the view you get on the pier. We look forward to coming back next year.
  • I always love coming to Jennette's with my family, catching fish and enjoying the view. The staff is very helpful and always very friendly, they have a stocked gift shop that includes drinks and snacks, and there are always nice people on the pier willing to help if you're having difficulty. Also, the pier is build very sturdy and is very clean for a fishing pier. It's not very loud and I a great place to visit.
