We had breakfast on the patio and the view was well worth being a little chilly. The service was a bit slow; but the comfort food breakfast, with the ocean backdrop, more than made up for it. I also thought the pricing was very reasonable.

Good restaurant and bar with a spectacular view. Requested to sit outside but was told the deck was closed. Got a window seat instead. After being seated several flies were buzzing around that table. Requested to move and was seated in the bar area. Then the host began seating people outside five minutes after they told me I couldn't sit... More

Had brunch. The food was excellent, but the service a bit lacking. The view cannot be beat, and this is what you're paying for.

I've gone to this restaurant for years when I pass through and the only reason to do so is for the ocean view on their small terrace. The food is "good" and fairly consistent, but unlike the food, the staff/waitstaff is hit or miss. The last couple of times I've been here they've been very disorganized and chatter about this...

Loved this place. Evening meal out on the deck, with the sea in the background and the heaters on next to you was amazing. The food was good, the service good and the price was good.

The food was pretty good but overpriced. I liked the outside patio with the sea view which seems perfect for a romantic dinning while enjoying the sunset.

We had breakfast and lunch here on different intervals. The food and scenery was a delight! Service was good also. If not , the wait was worth it. The only thing is , it is far from the town and you need a car.

We were staying in Pismo Beach and decided to try this restaurant out. The food was very good - fine quality and good choices. The service was really good - very friendly and attentive waiter. We would recommend this restaurant to anybody.

I visit this place every time I visit Pismo Beach. Over the last few times it has started to look a little rundown. The last visit will be my last visit.

Had the halibut and chips which was excellent. This establishment also has the choice of outdoor seating with the same great views. Stop by here for... More
