This building sits at the west end of Walker bridge which first opened on Dec 15, 1922. The two lane wooden bridge connected North Brevard to Merritt Island until World War II. Following the death of six soldiers after driving through the wooden guard railing, the Federal and State governments constructed a new concrete bridge with a steel swing-span and it was opened on Feb 21, 1949.
The city of Titusville then obtained rights to the western portion of the old bridge used it as a fishing pier. It was advertised as “Longest FREE fishing pier in the world” until the early 1970s. The bridge was scheduled to be replaced when damage from Hurricane Wilma in 2005 destroyed the pier and damaged the steel swing bridge. The A Max Brewer Memorial bridge, two new piers and a restaurant was constructed between 2008-2010
This restaurant was first opened in 2008 and remained in operation until June 2018. In 2017, Hurricane Irma caused major damage to the south seawall and entrance to the south Pier. This was repaired by FDOT in late 2018 and after renovation of the existing building and construction of a new outdoor bar, we have been open since Dec 2018. We have named it Pier 220 for it is the same exit off I-95 making it easier for visitors to find
