My husband and I had spent a fantastic morning whale watching and decided to eat at this restaurant which is the nearest to the dock. Big mistake! We were welcomed by a great guy who made a really great recommendation for beer and then it all went down hill. We ordered our meals which were lovely and just before we... More

My wife and I have spent a weekend in Morro Bay each of the past three years. We usually dine at Dorn's the first night as it's our favorite. Saturday night is for trying something new. Last year it was the Harbor Hut, this year the Blue Sky Bistro. Honestly we had never even noticed Blue Sky on previous trips.... More

We had a nice little table outside next to the dock overlooking Moro Rock. My breakfast of scrambled eggs with spinach, tomatoes, and mushroom, topped with avocado was delicious. My husband had the country potatoes, also excellent. My son only ordered hot chocolate, but it did look like a treat. Wish we could linger a little longer but we had... More

What a fabulous place. Great service, great food and the most wonderful place to see Morro Bay. I can recommend this place wholeheartedly. Well worth a visit.

Just returned from a weekend in Morro Bay and had our last meal at the Blue Sky - what a terrible way to end such a fun weekend. The service was just awful - shall I saw absent? The interior dining area is cramped and has zero charm. If you want to see the beautiful views that the Bay has... More

We enjoyed our breakfast and the view was great! Food was good, but there was a bit of a wait. The café seems to be going through an identity crisis, in the process of changing names, etc. Hope all goes well.

We had just visited Morro Bay for an event we went to. We were a group of 8-10. We arrived Friday afternoon and set out to find a place to eat. Still early evening and the crowds were small. We came across the Blue Sky Bistro and said let's try it. They had a great selection of wine and beer.... More

Never, in 40 years of visiting restaurants throughout the world, have I experienced such self-centred and appalling behaviour from restaurant staff - and that from the manager. We had a couple of relatively minor issues (an extra long wait for our light lunch, and the salsa spilt on serving) but had not made any issue about them at all. When... More

I am a Morro Bay local and really wanted this place to be great. With outside seating right on the bay the atmosphere is beautiful. However, I have been here several times and it seems to be getting worse. The service is negligent, at best. I watched someone's breakfast burrito sit in the window for about 12 minutes before being... More
