This was a great place. The view is superb and the food is delicious. We went on a Thursday and did not have to wait for a table with a view. Order the shrimp and scallops. Delicious

At happy hour M-F 4-6pm they offer small plates that are reasonable if you're not very hungry. On Wednesday evening they have a band during happy hour! loved it.

We'd read good reviews of this place so decided to try it for dinner. We sat at the bar as we were in a rush and explained that to the bartender. He was sweating profusely which seemed incredibly unhygienic since he's serving food and drink! He was so slow at serving us anything (the bar was dead), couldn't understand me... More

Went for Happy Hour 3 for 2 small plates. Free corkage. Food was very good and good value for the special price. Sunset views of Pismo Beach were spectacular. Service prompt and friendly.

While on vacation recently my wife and I returned to one of our favorite restaurants in Pismo Beach, the SeaVenture Restaurant, located as close to the ocean as you can get in Pismo Beach without getting wet. We both ordered the salmon paired with a wonderful Chardonnay. I also opted to enjoy their delicious clam chowder as my first course.... More

There was a wide choice of food but by the time I had untangled the descriptions of the sauces etc I had forgotten what the main food item was. Liked the choice of wines especially the chance to have one glass of a dessert wine. Quite pricey as well

Dined here recently and the best thing was the view ! The waiter was patronizing and the food cold and tasteless.On top of all this this the woman singing with the live group had a worse voice then mine and that is saying something !!!! Hope for future customers that we caught them on a bad night !!!!

This had to be one of the WORST restaurants I almost ate in. Arrived at 8pm for our 30th anniversary dinner! The gentleman that seated us was pleasant, however, the food was horrendous. I order a shrimp cocktail easy right? The presentation was ok but it was fishy and the shrimp was obviously frozen. It was surrounded by cucumber slices... More

I used to have a favorite place down the street, but had a bad experience and someone recommended the Sea Venture. I wanted a NICE dinner. I prefer the surf and turf, a nice beach view and the sunset over my glass of wine. May I just say the Sea Venture did NOT disappoint. both myself and my date were... More
