Nice view and good soup

We went with some friend while visiting CA and the crab soup was delicious + the view of the ocean was beautiful.

We went there for lunch on 8/25/15. Their lunch menu has deteriorated by at least 80%. On the lunch menu, Fish & Chips For $17.00 is outrageous, even though this dish was good. I had Muscles in white wine sauce - they looked and tasted like clams - the sauce had a peculiar taste. The prices for a lunch menu... More

For many years Steamers of Pismo was a shining jewel of a restaurant on the Central Coast. Big expansive oceanfront views, light, friendly! And good food and drink. For the last several visits our experiences have been mixed at best but yesterday's lunch was the Worst! A friend and I had looked forward to a respite from the heat and... More

Overall we enjoyed our visit to Steamers, especially as we're were able to make a reservation rather than wait for a table as is the norm at most places in the area. The location is good with a view of the sea but it turned foggy the evening we went. I'm sure it would be beautiful on a clear evening.... More

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 are staying at an RV park and wanted a night out. What a great choice first lots of parking. The restaurant is really nice with spectacular views. The service was good. Try the shrimp cocktail we also ordered a bottle of wine from an excellent wine list. We had fish with one of three toppings. Everything is a la... More

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...
