We dined here recently and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The menu was extensive and the food was fresh and well presented. The prices were good and the service was quick and friendly. A busy restaurant (probably because it is good) so book ahead or be prepared to wait a few minutes during busy times. We'd certainly return.

I like Pismo's. I think it has fresh seafood for an area that isn't coastal. It is located across from the Riverpark Shopping Center, so it's pricey.

If you are looking for a restaurant that is consistent in good seafood, try Pismo's. You will not be disappointed. Love the calamari steak, the Ahi stack, the sea bass and the clam chowder is great.

A bit over rated. Not sure what the big deal is. Service a bit slow. We were there on a Friday night with a group of 7. Not impressed.

Try their Halibut Chivece. Its undoubtibly the best I ever tried, served with spicy Tortilla Strips. Its a great combo.The minute you walk the smells are best. Fresh cooking Seafood is Awesome. Calamari Dinner with the house mash potatoes is the Bomb. The Bar drinks are super too!

Pismo's offers great atmosphere and really good food. It's a pity there isn't one on the beach at Pismo Beach. Thankfully, we have one in Fresno that does the trick with a wide variety of selections offered all day long.

Had the fish and chips. Two small pieces of fish well prepared with a ton for fries ( limp on the cool side) the wait staff was good and my overall impression was average. I was with tow others that had grilled mahi mahi sandwich and really liked that. The facility was clean and inviting.
