    I'm having a 'brain fade' moment where I can't think of the word for something, so thought it would be interesting to have a thread to answer such questions.

    I'll start: what's the word for the small structures, typically 1-3 levels, with a roof but otherwise open, at the end of or along a pier? They look like a bandstand or gazebo, but are on a pier on the water.

    Lookout Station?
    There must be a better term...

    It's commonly known as The End Of The Pier. Phishing is an optional activity.

    Here's a picture of one such structure, sans pier (which was destroyed in a storm). It used to be connected on two sides to a pier.

    I always just called it a gazebo.

    I just assumed a gazebo was only on land, but that works for me :)
