We have been driving most the day, had made it down and decided to stop in for some dinner. I wish I wasn't driving because I would like to try some of the sample brews that they had very large selection. They have these homemade potato chips that are very tasty I suggest you get an order as an appetizer. I went with the crab cakes they were a little on the spicy side and a little pricey I got three of them, but they were pretty tasty. Restaurant has various TVs and a main bar with seating at the bar restaurant seems to be very busy they also have some outdoor seating the atmosphere is pretty cool and laid-back. There wasn't too long of a line to wait to get in so I'm sure it can get packed at times. Would like to go back and try something else including some different beers. If you're in the area check out Shell Beach brewhouse.

Food is very good bar food. The tuna sashimi with chips can be a meal. I go because they have the best beer on tap selections and do a good job rotating options. Good mix of local and national beer. Fun atmosphere!

Food was fine, but average. Shrimp cocktail ($21) was chopped up shrimp with a lot of chopped cucumber, red onion and celery. Half caesar ($9.25) was also OK, just smaller than we thought it would be. Ordered a side of sweet potato fries ($8.50) and enjoyed them. Good craft beer selection on tap.

Great place for happy hour. It was our first time at the Brewhouse and we opted to sit at the bar. Bartenders Cody and Eric were friendly and chatted with us and the others at the bar while making drinks and filling orders. Brewhouse had a buy 2 get 1 appetizer free. What a deal. The poppers were so good and 2 orders of chicken quesadillas were too. So much food we took one whole one in a To Go box. Highly recommend driving from packed Pismo to this restaurant for happy hour or a meal.

Ok went with our family and a three year old. Asked for crayons and got exactly that crayons no paper, no clue on wait staff! The meal was fair at best and the burgers were nothing special. Would recomend Blast and Brew down the street!

We stayed in Pismo for 4 days and ate here twice! The burgers, the french dip, the tacos and the FRIES were amazing. Great beer list and full bar. During COVID so we opted to sit outside at their new streetside patio. Lots of heat lamps, seating and spacious areas to eat a meal and have a few beers.

We stopped by after a morning of kayaking and enjoyed their burgers. There is plenty of street parking nearby.

Good food. Pricy. Some staff didn’t wear masks correctly. For a couple appetizers, and sodas it was $65 with tip.

First night in Pismo needed something light and quick. Also with Covid we knew we would have limited options. Searched around on yelp and this place’s tacos just looked very appealing. Drove up to it and really liked the ambiance. Decided to try the Brussels sprouts starter and get one of each of their six tacos for dinner. We were looking forward to their Korean beef taco but found that to be our least favorite but loved the chicken and ahi tacos. All were really great but the chicken and ahi were our favorite. Place was packed had a long wait. We will probably go back to try the cheese curds. Hubby had one of their beers said it was decent . Service was great. From hostess to server everything was quick, efficient and very professional.

We are loca and right around the corner and used to go there all the time but now a figgin Burger or sand wich is $18 ..... you are better off going to Zorros Cafe about a block away and get great food at 1/2 the price.... I don't think the owners restaurant understands that locals are at least 50% of their business and we just can't afford those prices....When we do go I end up having to leave a very poor tip to compensate for the bigh prices....too bad, I don't think they will make it for the long term..

Have only visited a handful of times, but never disappointed. Good beer, good pub grub and friendly, attentive service. Very dependable in all respects. Go! You'll enjoy it.

One of many eateries in Shell Beach. Were told by friends to check it out. It’s a nice place with large bar and many different beers on draft as well as a good selection of wine and cocktails. At first sight the menu looks quite appealing with some interesting starters, salads , sandwiches and burgers. For us the food however was underwhelming. The plates are crazy big, I could have fed 3 people with my sandwich “ the fratboy”. It wasn’t bad but c’mon. Didn’t care for the fries either. Very crispy and too greasy.

Worth 4.5 stars..... Good, friendly service (thanks Sean), a wide selection of beers on draft and good pub food. Try to spicy Korean beef street tacos ($4.75 each) and fried Brussel sprouts with Granny Smith apples. Go during happy hour (4-6 pm weekdays) for discounts on all beers on tap and well drinks. The only drawback to this place is there’s no ocean view — it’s on Shell Beach road, a busy frontage street to the freeway.

We arrived in Pismo Beach with my wife in the midst of a 24hr bout of food poisoning. She just wanted to sleep, so me and kids decided to head out for dinner on our own. Our hotel recommended the Shell Beach Brewhouse and it was a great choice. We arrived at the tail end of happy hour. My son (12) had the chicken tenders kids meal and my daughter had a portion of wings. They shared the two and were v happy. I had a roast beef and cheese hoagie which trounced most of the burgers I had throughout my vacation. I also had a couple of pints of really excellent craft ale. Happy hour meant the bill was quite reasonable and we all went back to the hotel fed and happy. Even better my wife was fully recovered by the next day. Shame she missed She’ll Beach.

Consistent service and food. Typical resort burgers and tacos.... management is cheap on the extras... Water is city supplied with chlorine and taste... Nor filtered... So buck up and buy the beer.... Portions are not consistent, burger with three fries is same price as burger buried on fries
