Wonderful place for sunset

We came here around 6:30pm on Friday night. There were plenty of tables there. We got a nice table close to the window, where we can enjoy the sunset.

Fantastic food, great service, and there's nothing to complain about. The view is stellar and you can actually watch the sun drop into the ocean at sunset rather than over a cliff point. Our scallop dinner was delicious and the manager went out of his way to make sure our anniversary dinner was extra special. Thank you so much!

Wanting just a light dinner, my wife and I each ordered a bowl of clam chowder and a Caesar salad to share. The clam chowder was very bland as was the salad. The salad was uninspired and tasteless. Frankly, we've tasted better Caesar salad dressing out of a bottle. The clam chowder was disappointing in that Pismo Beach has a... More

On our way into Pismo we called and asked for last minute reservations and were told Saturday night with little advance notice may not be able to however come in and they would try. We did and so did they! We were served by Chelsea and from the drinks, to the appetizers, to the meal there was not a thing... More

While staying next door at the Sandcastle Inn for a February getaway, we were easily accommodated by the staff into a very nice seating area. Treatment was to our expectations for a romantic couple's dinner. The food and wine list made for easy and very tasty choices. I had last been in the area 5 years before on business and... More

Very nice location, inside and outside dining, even an outside area just for smokers (ugh) but it's there. The bartender did not know how to make a specific manhattan cocktail (with Jameson, bitters and vermouth). Even after being told how we wanted it, he put grenadine or some red sweetener in it, and NO CHERRY!. So, my wife sent that... More

I have wanted to try this restaurant for a while, just because their view looked magnificent. I got a chance for Valentine's Day, when they offered a $65 fix-prix menu. We had unfortunately waited until the day before to book, and they offered to wait-list us, as they had been booked for a week. We got a call that afternoon,... More
