As a local of SLO county I've been trying to eat at every resturant in the county at least once. I droped by Embarcadero Grill one afternoon, and decided to order lunch to go for my girlfriend and I. I walked in and there was 1 couple eating in the resturant. I waited about 5 minutes before someone came out... More

Service can be spotty at the beach , they either don't have any customers and are unable to staff or they are swamped and don't have enough staff. We stoped in at the Embarcadero for a beer one night , cool kind of beach dive bar feel. They knew there beers as each beer comes in the correct style of... More

We took our friends from overseas who are currently working on a guide book checking restaurants and hotels on the Central Coast. Food was alright even though my hubby's cod was partially raw. Restrooms were super dirty and they could not tell us what beers they had on draft. The windows were dirty and there was some internal remodeling going... More

We arrived and ordered an ice water and draft import beer, 25 minutes later I asked for our drinks. The ice water never arrived. When our food arrived we realized we didn't have silverware, which took us several minutes to find --by ourselves-- by taking them from an unused table across the restaurant. Since the place was not terribly busy,... More

My wife and I had an early dinner here. She ordered the tri tip steak and I had the fisherman's platter. Both were very tasty and filling. We also had a great view of Morro Harbor from our table.

We set out to go to the Libertine Pub, but it wasn't open for lunch. One of the bartenders told us that we could get beer and lunch in the Embarcadero Grill (they're connected). When we tried to order beers, our waitress couldn't tell us what they were pouring - the chalkboard list was not accurate. She offered to get... More

Period. Then three or four white wines arrived and one was completely spilled down the back of one... More

Wow, there are a lot of terrible reviews for this place on tripadvisor! I'm not going to write one, though, because my family and I just had a good lunch there last week. We were visiting the area for the first time and wanted to have lunch someplace on the water, and their lunch menu looked okay, so we tried... More

My husband and I had lunch here with a cousin over the weekend. I ordered fish, calamari & chips. Generous portion sizes. Decent prices. Server offered samples of different beers for me to choose one I liked. I went with the Hazelnut Brown draft. Beer was ice cold and delicious. The fried food was a tasty rare treat. Dinner two...

This place is nothing short of horrendous. Everything is microwaved and tasteless, and the service is bad. The view was nice but you can get the same view from countless other restaurants on the same street. After reading all the other reviews we are now hoping we don't get sick. We had such a bad time that we went to... More
