I've never been to this place till we planned a Fish Fry which we needed to find a place locally that carried fresh sea food. We purchased shark, swordfish, shrimp and halibut, our fish fry was a huge success! 2wks later, I made reservations for dinner and Wow the dinner was amazing and the adult drinks tasted perfect (could be...

Good Seafood in the Central Valley is not as plentiful as I would like, so when I find a place that has good service, pleasant ambiance and great food, I'm sold. I have had lunch and dinner here and each meal was very tasty.

On a recent early Friday night visit to our favorite grill we found our favorite entrees have changed to the worst. Their mussels in wine and garlic usually had broth that you welcomed dipping in with their bread but not this time. The broth was weak and watery as was the Polenta that we ordered with their pan fried scallops.... More

Pismo's always has new, delectable dishes on the menu. I feel compelled to try several of the new appetizers each time I am there. I have never been disappointed with the delicious flavorful food I have had at Pismo's. It is one of the best restaurants in town! The staff is always friendly and courteous and accommodating. In addition to... More

We came here right after our Yosemite trip, and being that we had driven a few hours to get out of the park we were in a mood for some quality cuisine. The reviews on this place were outstanding and we're really looking forward to wetting our whistles and chowing down on some fantastic grub. Then we met our server... More

Whenever we want a good fish dinner we come here. Pricey for us so we don't come too often. Everything is fresh and beautifully prepared. Love crab salad, soup choices, fresh bread and more. Never disappointed.

Pismo's is never my first choice in Fresno because I don't like fish but I have been able to find more options recently. I had a delicious hamburger here that was worthy of the dinner hour. I was only able to eat half of it because we began the evening with artichokes and sweet potatoes fries as appetizers. Both were... More

I have never had a bad meal here! It's a lively, friendly and popular place. Can be pretty busy at times and sometimes a bit noisy too. But it is worth the wait to get in. Just call ahead if you are in a hurry.

We visited Friday June 24, 2016 at around 1:00 and the place was packed. Waited about 20 minutes for a table for two. My wife and I split a bowl of clam chowder, Salmon Burger with sweet potato fries. Food was served hot and it was all delicious and portion size was perfect for us. Our waitress Karly was polite...
