IB pier

The first pier in Imperial Beach was built in 1909 and had a bunch of machinery called the "Edwards Wave Motor" that was hopeful in harnessing wave energy. Alas, that didn't work and anyway, it would have gotten washed away in the storm that took it all down in 1948. Another pier was built in 1962 which lasted into the early 1980's until it too was taken out by storms. The one above opened in 1989 and so far so good.

Is that structure at the end still a fish restaurant?
