Lovely View

We have come to this area annually for years, yet have never eaten here. We arrived mid-morning, so . . not crowded at all. We did hear a couple other guests ask to put their meal on a room charge (for Spyglass Inn) - and they were told they do not accept room charges. Our server was very nice... read more

Thanks for finally checking us out! We're very glad that you enjoyed your poached eggs and pancakes as much as the view. Sorry for the few mishaps with your order -- we would have been glad to warm up your crab and take another shot at the bacon if you'd asked us. Just let us know next time! We appreciate... More

I always have liked the Spyglass Inn Restaurant and Bar. I usually stop by on my way home after business...( I stay at the INN).

Enjoyed the dinner, Flat Iron Steak. Tasted great and the view of the ocean and sunset was beautiful.

Glad you loved your steak, TJ! We hope you'll be back to see how the rest of our menu measures up (the view, of course, will still be just as breathtaking). We appreciate your support, and we look forward to your next visit. Sincerely, Spyglass Inn Restaurant More

Next to the Spyglass Inn, this restaurant has very friendly staff and the bar seems to be a local favorite. During a sunset drink in the bar we got some great recommendations for Pinot Noir tasting in the Edna Valley and not to be missed sights in the Pismo Beach area. There is a breakfast special for those staying at... More

We stopped here as it was convenient on our drive up the coast, not knowing what to expect, and were very pleasantly surprised. The weather was good so we sat outside and enjoyed the amazing views over the ocean, the seating area is enclosed with glass panels so keeping the wind away - very pleasant. The food was fantastic and... More

The outdoor patio was a lovely place to sit with a full ocean view. It was very nice to have a much better than average lunch while watching a sea otter play. Service was quite good and prices not too bad.

Doug R, Owner at Spyglass Inn Restaurant, responded to this review

Sounds like you lucked out this time -- the view is always beautiful, but you don't always get to observe sea life so closely. We're glad you had just as much fun as the otters did! We appreciate your feedback, and we hope you'll visit us again very soon. Best wishes, Spyglass Inn Restaurant More

Server accomodated my request to have pasta and salmon instead of pasta and clams. Both my husband and I enjoyed our food. The server also quickly returned my purse I had left in a chair.

We checked for the timing of sunset and had drinks in hand on the patio just in time. Beautiful! The menu choices were wonderful and I had a delicious shrimp scampi dinner.
