Unbelievable white clam chowder across from the pier in Cayucos, CA. Sit inside or eat outside and enjoy the phenomenal view and ocean breeze.

That's what you go here for. Clam chowder. My personal favorite is the white but they also serve a red which is more like a vegetable soup base. Certainly not as thick as white clam chowder.

Very busy, but quick. Good fish and chips. Or if you like, you can have chowder by the bowl, or sour dough bread bowls. Also plenty of parking behind the restaurant..

We stopped here for dinner and had the calamari, crab salad, clam chowder, and the steamed clams. ALL were delicious! ALL the portions were quite healthy! We shared a bottle of Ancient Peaks Sauvignon Blanc...an all around, truly wonderful meal! All the staff were polite and helpful! I'm sure we'll return!

Having arrived in Cayucos later than planned, with 2 hungry kids, we headed straight here after a recommendation and were not disappointed. A great location near to the pier, the décor is great, the food was delicious and it was served fast.

I wish I a picture but I'll to capture next time. Our favorite resto in Cayucos. Space is limited but you can buy to go and eat on the beach. The calamari is better the Splash cafe in Pismo and in SLO.
