Although the atmosphere is nice, the view is beautiful and the food was good - the service was disappointing. When I want to have a nice dinner and enjoy the ocean view I don't want to be rushed. And when I tell the server that I have time for my dinner and then the entrée is served when I just... More

Ate here our first night in Pismo Beach for the Memorial Day weekend. They have a great happy hour in the bar. $5 appetizers! We were seated at a beautiful ocean view table. I thoroughly enjoyed my steamed clams & Ceasar salad! It was cheaper to order that way, and plenty of food! Another member of our group had the... More

This is one of my favorites in CA for their clam chowder and other seafood offerings. Clam chowder is loaded with clams, veggies, potato, and bacon. The steamed clams, fried oysters, and fish tacos are also delicious.

Our first stop for what we heard was the best clam chowder around. It was so good and filling it's all I could eat. A meal in itself I didn't love the decor it's dated and needs work but many times it's not about that. I will say one of the better Clam Chowders I've had.

Had a family wedding in Pismo. Group of us went to dinner at Steamers. Ordered the sea bass for $22. Got a piece of fish that was the size of my iPhone 5. Nothing else on the plate but parsley. The fish was dry and not worth the money. Not going here again. So many other choices in Pismo.

The food is good but will not knock your socks off. What makes Steamers great is the view of the ocean and its atmosphere.

Food just average, but main thing is they do NOT know how to set a table. Forks on right side, knife on left!!!! The ahi sandwich was overcooked albacore. The crab and lobster roll had no lobster in it!!!
