Dinner with a view!

We went to spyglass on a recommendation and it was great! Make sure to make a reservation on weekends or busy nights and request for outside seating! The patio is lovely! Next time we go it will be for a nice lunch.

Tried to eat there last night. Ordered garlic fries as an appetizer which never came. For dinner meals ordered were Calamari steak dinner, scallops, and swordfish. The calamari steak came as a sandwich instead of a dinner which they took back however the other 2 meals were cold nothing hot on the plate. When the calamari was returned it was... More

Please accept our apologies for this experience, Charlotte. We know it's frustrating when your order doesn't come out as expected (more than once, no less), and we're very sorry we put you through that this time. We'll be sure to look into this evening to figure out what might have gone wrong. Sincerely, Spyglass Inn Restaurant More

The bus-person appeared to not be allowed to offer water or coffee and we sat waiting for drinks for at least 15 minutes. There were only 3 other tables occupied. Because of... More

Beyond the views and fantastic dishes, enjoy the caring service and conversation of staff and bartenders like Larry, Josh (both of them), Panda, and Jeremiah. Meals for any budget, grand happy hour, great walk down to the beach, you name it.

A longtime favorite of the locals, Spyglass is known for a great bar area, indoor & outdoor seating, delicious food and amazing sunsets. Relaxing, ocean front, and always spectacular.

Good breakfast deal for Spyglass Inn Guests. Nice ocean view, just off the 101 freeway. Good place to stay for CalPoly san Luis Obispo parents. Nice beds and excellent pillows! No airconditioning, but it is not needed - cool

We stopped in for breakfast while we were waiting to check into the Spyglass Inn hotel. We were seated on the outside deck, overlooking the rocky shoreline below. I thought I would be adventurous and try the Crab Benedict instead of my usual omelette . A few minutes later a standard EGGS Benedict arrived, with ham and no crab. When... More

Good quality breakfast for the money! Good coffee, fresh baked goods, and excellent omelettes. We wanted to eat dinner too, but it didn't work out. Restaurant is attached to the Spyglass Inn, and overlooks the ocean. Wonderful views!
