I have been to Pismos many many times. Never a bad meal. I love the atmosphere and the food of course. The workers are always friendly and do their utmost to be sure you are taken care of during your meal. Seafood is amazing. I like the ceviche with chips and half and half clam chowder. I ate at the... More

The Bkackened Salmon & grilled Shrimp tacos were excellent. The fish was moist and not over cooked and the spice was just right. Our server was friendly and very helpful.

Fresno is hardly on the ocean so you wouldn't expect to get such fresh fish, perfectly prepared. We were a party of seven on a busy Saturday night. Seated promptly (with a reservation), the meal was perfect, and the service pleasant. An out of town guest (a real food snob) thought the calamari steak was the best she had ever... More

Fabulous food so far from the sea! Great bar for happy hour, and staff knows their menu. We've dined here maybe 10 times, lunches & dinner, never had bad food or service. Plates are $15 and up, highly recommend calamari appetizer and chippino!

This is really a great place. Very nice atmosphere --- roomy inside and not too loud. Great menu with plenty of grilled fish options. Great appetizers. Service is very fast. We had salmon, crab and a burger. All were perfect. Highly recommended if in Fresno at Riverpark.

Met up with my cousin and a few friends at this grill. Daily happy hour 4-6pm. Wide selection of goodies..burgers, brews and lots of other tasty treats. Serve both red and white chowder and alarm selection of fresh fish done your way. Outstanding coleslaw and sweet potato fries too. Will definitely make another appearance here very soon.

I travel across the US for business and have eaten at quite a few restaurants in various towns/states. Pismo's is consistently among the best anywhere in all categories: Food quality, service, atmosphere and value. Appetizer selection and price during happy hour is unbelievable - truly an opportunity to try a little of everything at a very reasonable price. This is... More

Fresh seafood, except for sushi at various restaurants, is lacking in Fresno/Clovis area and Pismo's delivers. Food good; service adequate; wait time is not unreasonable; but atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. Designed to be like an open-air fish-type market restaurant which results in very loud atmosphere with no buffer to the noise anywhere in the restaurant; and the... More
