My wife and I enjoyed an excellent anniversary dinner at Shawn's last Saturday. The grilled artichoke starter was excellent as was the bruschetta (sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese on crostini). Our main courses were very good, too: delicious gnocchi and Chinese style beef; and the wine was reasonably priced. The atmosphere is tranquil (unless you eat after 9pm on... More

Decided to give Shawn's On Main a try and we were not disappointed. Very nice dinner and wine. Quiet relaxing dinner. We also enjoyed very nice bottle of wine at a reasonable price. Personal service as Shawn's wife was our waitress. The Ahi that was in the online menu was not on the current menu. I hope they bring it... More

I had not been back to Shawn on Main in a while , should go more often. It's in my opinion definitely the best restaurant in Morro Bay . We shared the Brucetta with the use of Goat cheese and no garlic it was a nice change . Everything in Shawn is always tasty and the presentation is first class,... More

We absolutely loved our dinner at Shawn's. We started with the grilled artichoke, followed by the coq au vin and the pork medallions, and finished with the sticky toffee pudding. Every dish was excellent, as was the service. We will be back next time we pass through Morro Bay.

2nd time back just to make sure the first visit wasn't a fluke. It wasn't, 4 people, all plates cleaned, even the salad was good. Chocolate sticky toffee pudding was to die for. Small restaurant with personal service, relaxed atmosphere. Small menu so we know everything is cooked after you order it, not waiting on a heat lamp somewhere. Best... More

Artichokes are hard to ind in a restaurant, so I was happy to find them at Shawn's. they were the best ever! Also the corn chowder...obvious that fresh corn was used. The gnocchi was great but the coq au vin was outstanding! And then there was dessert...the chocolate pudding/cake was awesome! Even though Shawn was alone in the kitchen that... More

A friend of mine recommended this restaurant on a whim and my fiancé and I thought we would try it out. Dinner was absolutely amazing and we were so pleased! The grilled artichokes and baby back ribs were delicious, as was the chicken. I wish we lived closer! Although they were short staffed in the kitchen, the entire experience was... More

My wife and I had an incredible meal here that started off with some sweetbreads brought to the table, and was rounded out with the gnocchi and chicken dumpling main courses. Great wine selection, incredible flavors, fantastic service, and perfect atmosphere. Best Gnocchi ever! Highly recommended!
