Mattison’s Riverside transforms into Pier 22 Restaurant-Patio-Ballroom

Mattison’s Riverside transforms into Pier 22 Restaurant, Patio, and Ballroom on
Thursday, September 1, 2011. The Miller Family, who developed and has owned the restaurant
since 1976 has elected not to renew the name licensing agreement with the Mattison Company.
The owners feel it is time to continue their growth and expansion under a broader name which
better identifies the location. The name Pier 22 comes from the historic nature of the Memorial
Pier on which the restaurant stands and the red channel marker 22 on the Manatee River that
leads into the Twin Dolphin Marina and restaurant. Hugh Miller, the managing general partner
for the restaurant and marina said, “I am really excited about our new name. I feel it gives the
restaurant a more modern look and better represents the expansive and creative menu our
culinary team has created over the years.”

The Executive Chef and General Manager, Greg Campbell has teamed up with the Miller Family
for over 5 years and is equally as excited about the fresh new look and change. “My culinary
team and the entire staff are not resting on our past successes. We are striving every day to
continue growing and refining our innovative menu and fine points of service. We worked very
hard to earn our Wine Spectator Award and 6 People’s Choice Awards published in the
Bradenton Herald this past year. Our goal is to continue to improve on our performance and
exceed our guest expectations. We understand we are only as good as our guest’s last
experience.”

Pier 22 continues to offer a full sushi bar, fresh whole fish procurement program guaranteeing
only the freshest fish available and an outstanding array of venues to accommodate every
occasion. The new expanded patio and riverside terrace provides the perfect setting for al fresco
dining and special events. Chef Greg will continue offering his exciting cooking classes and
special recipes so be sure to follow him on facebook.
A grand celebration party takes place Thursday, September 1st from 5:30 to 7:00pm with live
music and prizes. Complimentary wine tastings, menu samplings and specialty drinks will be
offered.

Pier 22 is located in historical Downtown Bradenton at 1200 1st Avenue West, Bradenton, FL
34205. For more information and reservations please call 941.748.8087 or visit
