Is the food really good? Yes. Is it worth the exorbitant prices? Not at all. When a burger costs over $20 and doesn't come with bacon or avocado (both additional charges) and is one of the cheapest non-appetizer items on the menu, no thanks. Not worth it. I honestly would rather just drive another couple miles south and get an... More

Always a fun stop in Pismo, with very tasty steaks and side dishes. If you are bold enough, ask the server and they will pour your water blindfolded from about 2-3 feet above you into a glass on top of your head!

Big, loud restaurant, perfect for families or large groups! Steak lovers seem to love this place, however, considering steaks are their specialty and being a med rare girl I found my steak to be overcooked. The rest of the food was on the basic side The group I was with loved the food but I found the experience to be... More

Good for the whole family but extra fun for couples. We were on business but also couples dinner... Tried the turkey nuts as a joke and they were pretty tasty. The service is A+ very good. Food spectacular and you get life than you pay for... Perfect night out on the beach with a great view.

Come here whenever we are visiting Pismo. My boys and husband love the filets and ribeye and everything that comes with it. Not being a meat eater, I find it hard to pay so much for a pasta primavera that was just eh, but the grilled artichokes were delicious! Nice view of the ocean and cowboy ambiance. Prices have gone... More

Just off the 101 in Pismo Beach, McLintocks Saloon is a landmark. Once you're seated, be ready for a big basket of terrific onion rings, on the house. There's a full bar, good wine list, and a menu with a nice variety of entrees, but beef seems to be their forte. A baseball cut sirloin arrived cooked to perfection but... More

I have been coming to McClintock's since the 70's..... That's right, you read that correctly. I was born in SLO and we came here every year on my birthday, as well as other times throughout the year. Moved away in 1979, but always visited McClintock's when we were in town. Returned in 1988-1993 to attend Cal Poly, and it continued... More

My favorite place in Pismo for over 25 years. Filet melts in your mouth and sides are tasty and refillable. On a Monday night it wasn't too busy and bottled wine was half priced. ...bonus!

A steakhouse should be able to do a good steak. It might just be my personal taste but the New York steak was not tender nor delicious and the amount of accompanying food was unnecessary. Why put rice and refried beans with a steak, along with garlic bread and fried potatoes?!!! And all of this after onion rings served with... More
