First stop on our road trip and I wanted a place where I could dine with a view of the Morro Rock and hopefully catch a nice sunset. Well I got both here. Get there about 5:30 at the latest. Word is out about this place and can get crowded, cannot imagine how it is during the summer. We both... More

Yep - will say it again - Great menu and a helpful and friendly staff. The food was delicious. Outdoor seating provides a beautiful bay view. The staff is both friendly and helpful. What more could you want? Well worth a visit (or two)

Back at Morro bay to get my daughter off to school. Went back to blue sky as it was so good the first time. We were not disappointed. The lobster bisque is truly amazing, and the others who had the clam chowder said the same. This time the weather cooperated and we sat outside at sunset. It was outstanding. Service... More

Let me simply say, I literally crave this stuff!! For months, I would think about the Lobster Bisque daily on my way home from work, wondering if my husband made us dinner, or if maybe we'd go out to Blue Sky Bistro for my favorite meal!! Buttery, deliciousness! Do yourself a favor, give it a try!

I had both a lunch and a cocktail hour while in town recently. The patio is the best & the beer is the coldest! The food is simple fare but good as well. The grilled shrimp cocktail was my fav dish.

The Grill Prawn Cocktail was extremely good. The New York Strip Steak with mushrooms was good with the fresh vegetables and rice pilaf. The hamburger was good made from black angus beef and nice assortment of condiments. It was nice sitting close to the bay with the sunset. Watching the playful sea mammals and listening to the their sounds. Very... More

Went there for breakfast but were underwhelmed so decided to skip it for dinner. No oatmeal. No much on the healthy side with limited dish selection. I ordered a bagel-unremarkable. Served with a bunch of spinach, cucumber, red onion, tomato and cream cheese. No fruit offered as a side. Service was nice but not much of a breakfast crowd -... More

Pleasant place to sit and watch sea otters play and sea lions slapping around whilst you eat breakfast in the sunshine. All the food looked good on the menu and the prices for the location seemed reasonable. Really enjoyed my granola with fresh fruit and yogurt. My daughters hot chocolate looked great too.

A delightful place to enjoy a dinner and drink while watching the Sunset, They have a menu which offers a variety of meat and seafood dishes. I enjoyed the Seafood Pasta dish which included, salmon, shrimp, clams and mahi-mahi in a rich garlic butter broth. The services was good.

Great setting overlooking Morro Bay and Morro Rock! Sat outside to take advantage of the view and split the gigantic breakfast burrito with my wife...definitely enough for both of us. Great service, food and setting.

In addition to the indoor seating, there are 18 outdoor waterfront tables to enjoy watching the seals, otters, pelicans and other nature as well as watching the sailboats drift by.

The scene is gorgeous and a glassed in area is provided to enjoy the outdoors when it is windy. Sunset is beautiful from this location while dinner is served.
