Nice dinner

A bit hectic service, but the view was great and meal very nice. We enjoyed our meal, and they were able to acoomondate special dietary requests, although the server seemed reluctant at first.

We had an open table reservation and still had to wait 1/2 hour. Our seafood was excellent and the server was very good. My biggest issue was waiting 45 minutes to get it. View excellent

While the view was sensational..... (we observed a number of whales while there), the food was "ok". Not bad, just not what we expected. In their defense we did come in during those odd "in between" hours of lunch and dinner, so we may have caught folks between shifts as well. Our waiter was very good, and friendly. Just thought...

Our fish was raw, but potatoes and view were fantastic. Service staff were very nice and efficient. The wait time was very short and our drinks were delicious!

We showed up in Pismo Beach at 10:30am and drove around looking for a parking spot, what a mess! We decided to leave and on our way out we found Steamers. Steamers had just opened we had a great table with a breathtaking view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly. Everything on the children's menu is $10 which... More
