Newly updated menu

Recently went back after a year absence when we heard they updated their menu and put the emphasis on fresh fish. It is a definite improvement, and Steamers is back on our list of lunch and dinner places we frequent. The killer view remains the same, but the new chef has rolled out some very nice... read more

We dined at Steamers with our business partners. We ordered four different seafood dishes and all were very good. But we were looking for a premium restaurant with great service so we left disappointed because our waiter was challenged to get the order correct and be around at the right time.

We had lunch there. The restaurant was only about 1/3 full. Service was polite and the menu is good. After ordering, we got drinks and bread (very good roles) promptly. However, we did not get the soup for about 25 minutes. Soup takes about 10 seconds to put into a cup, so I could not figure out what the issue... More

Nicely greeted, reservations honored, children accommodated, and nice portions. I just would add a side included in the plates for dinner. How much profit would it take away to put a couple zucchini slices, or other green veggie? We tried the side of risotto (very nice, and big portion).Clam chowder very good. Scallops were tasty. Chopped salad with salmon just... More

The food was delicious! The ocean view was spectacular, and the night we were there several whales put on a show for us spouting as they swam. It looked like every table was situated to have a view of the ocean. I would recommend reservations if you want a window seat. We went on a Tuesday and it was very... More

Whenever I have the opportunity to visit Pismo Beach I try to make it to Steamers. The view is outstanding and the clam chowder is great. I came in for dinner. I just wanted a light dinner, a cup of clam chowder, a side salad and iced tea. The waiter was a bit rude. Took away all of the wine... More

We were on a quick two day getaway to Pismo and decided to take in Steamers Happy Hour on the suggestion from a friend. The wait staff was efficient and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised by the moderate prices and the quality of the hors d'oeuvres. The margaritas and bloody Marys were good, and the clams were the best we... More

If you are there on a day that they are serving their Seafood Fondue, just order that. It is wonderful and more than enough for two people and a margarita or two.
