Great grub on the central coast

This is a favorite lunch spot on the central coast. Good value casual dining. I like stopping in after a day on the water. The seafood combo platter is huge, we sometimes split it and add on some other tasty treats. The blackened fish plate and chowder are also quite good. This place can get busy... read more

We stopped in for lunch and had the fish sampler and house salad. The salad was fresh and the fish was cooked just right. The staff was friendly and efficient, and the prices are reasonable. It's a great place to enjoy the seaside and meet the locals.

It was crowded, but the friendly staff did a great job getting your food orders. The food was great, and I would recommend the white clam chowder.

A fantastic location just off the Cayucos pier. The clam chowder is absolutely delicious. I definitely recommend it.

This place is a decent choice for a quick meal if you're in Cayucos. The service is quick, the place is clean, and it's right next to the pier. Chowder is ok - lots of clans, but a little heavy on the flour. Goes well with Cholula hot sauce.

The clam chowder was heavy on the flour and needed some seasoning. An average clam chowder, but the soup bowl was quite large.

An informal, but clean dining environment. Order at counter, they bring it to the table. The white chowder had tender clams and sufficient spices for flavor. The bread bowl was very good and fresh--one of the best bread bowels I've had.

We decided on the last night at the beach to try this place. It is cut inside -- full of locals. We had the steamers and they were very good. I would suggest that they not use so much butter in the broth. It was a bit overwhelming. The shrimp cocktail was decent. Overall not a bad place -- beachy... More
