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

This place has poor service. Sat down, waitress said she would be with us. 10 minutes later, after watching several servers look at us still never received a menu. After watching other people get served around us, we got up and left. So rude and bad service.

Awesome view! The service was awesome, and the food was really good! I enjoyed the shrimp tacos. They were the best I have ever had. Definitely must stop here if you are visiting Morro Bay!

We ate here twice. Mushroom ravioli, steak...everything was fantastic and the staff is so friendly. The views are beautiful. The dining area inside is nothing fancy, but the food and service (and views) more than make up for it.

We stumbled across this place after getting into town late and we were looking for a nice place to eat on the water. We decided to eat here and we weren't disappointed! They have the best clam chowder we have ever tasted! Main entree was delicious as well. Great service and great view of bay and Morro Rock. Very kid-friendly... More

Stopped here for breakfast after passing it up way too many times to visit restaurants that don't come close to measuring up to the Blue Sky! You could not choose a better location because it is right on the water with picture perfect views of the Bay, Rock, boats and birds! Since it was early, it was nice to have... More
