“Great Location with lots of potential, but the service ruined it all”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

Came here with a couple of friends and felt like we were putting the bartender out by looking at the menu for literally 20 seconds. He just stood over us with his arms crossed looking angry. He never smiled or checked back on us after he put down our drinks. We wanted to order food so we had to flag him back down. We had a pannini sandwich that was dry and blah. Nothing I would re-order. We flagged him down for another drink and he put his hand up to us to pretty much shush us while he was eavesdropping on another conversation in the bar, sorry! This is a cute place, it's decorated cute, and it's a great location. Overall experience was no good though. Bad service can kill a business in this area.

“Good food, drink and relaxed atmoshpere...go to the Boardroom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2011

My wife, son and I had dinner and drinks at the Boardroom Surf Pub tonight. We were pleasantly surprised with our evening out. The ambiance was very nice and relaxed which was complimented by the owner and bartender Steve (love the surfboards on the ceiling). The selection or draft and bottle of beers was very extensive and the listing of local wines was very good as well. We had the burgers and pizza, which were very tasty, good quality, and well worth the price. The pizza was really unique thin crust and the dutch crust buns hamburgers were very satisfying!

If you are in the pier area of Pismo Beach and you are looking for a casual dining experience with good food, beer,and wine selection I would recommend you stop by the Boardroom and have a great time!

We will be returning!

“A Great Lunch Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2010

We found this restaurant while driving from LA to San Francisco. It is located in the town area, very close to the beach. The atmosphere was quaint and comfortable, dressed up with surf boards and dark wood tables and bar. The meal was excellent and priced just right. We had two of their paninis which were very well made and great portions. Beer prices were not too bad and were tolerable since the meal was a great value.
