I absolutely loved this place! The view and food are so delicious! I watched the sunset and enjoy my seafood sandwich! It wasn’t like any I’ve ever had before and I wish I could eat two! My partner ordered the Spicy chicken sandwich and it...definitely had a kick but was also delicious! The only thing is I wish I could have enjoyed my beer, except due to covid, the alcoholic beverages are “To-Go” only. Not gonna lie they confiscated my to go beer because I had it sitting on the table even though I wasn’t drinking it. However, they tell you when you purchase it about their alcohol policy, I just didn’t realize I couldn’t have it on the patio AT ALL. I got it back when I was leaving though. All in all, great food, great service, best views !!More

Due to Covid, you never know what to expect when you go to a restaurant. Woolys was coping better than most. You enter and order, then they announce when your food is ready. Mean while you can sit on their deck and enjoy a great...view of the pier. The fish and chips were very good. Firm fish with a crunchy coating. The tartar sauce and cocktail sauces were both good. I can’t rate service since they only provide “take out”. It was a pleasant dining experience none the less.More

There is always a line here during our stay and you cannot reserve or call to order. We had the fish tacos and seafood roll. The seafood is super fresh and delicious. They have outside seating as well.

When lines were long at other restaurants we came to Wooly's and ordered fish and chips and chowder. They stick to the menu and you cannot pay an upcharge to add anything to your fries or make any substitution if you don't like fries. This...was frustrating since I threw away the french fries and only ate the fish. However the fish was excellent and our friends said their chowder was excellent. Staff was friendly and the restaurant was safe covid-19 rules where followed. Nice views of the ocean from the patio. If they would just loosen up on the menu and allow you to add toppings to the fries or switch out fries for onion rings or Salad Etc at an upcharge this customer would have been much happier. They could make plenty of money on the add-on pricing also. Other restaurants offered changes and add-ons for$1.50. I would have gladly paid more than that just to get what I wanted. Left disappointed the strict rules. Very dog friendly!More

Good fish and chips. Good shrimp. Not a great fan of the waffle fries. wedge salad was tasty and enormous. Definitely enough for two people. Service was fast and friendly. Great location. Nice portion sizes. Only problem, no signage. Customers waiting in the wrong lines...for the wrong things.More

Huge Salads! The kale crunch and side salads were HUGE! They were delicious, and very fresh. Great safe seating on the outdoor deck facing the pier. Prices were very fair!!

Do not miss the Fish Tacos. Great parking for a fee, super selection of brews, all servers and help wore masks, tables were cleaned after use, the fish tacos came in a basket of three. Next time in Pismo we will order the Fish tacos...again, the outside eating area has glass to keep the wind down and you are right there next to the pierMore

The location is really the only reason to dine at Wooly's. The service and food are just your average fare.

We went to Brad's for dinner and were shocked to find it closed at 6 pm. Walked down to Wooly's and were the last people let in before the close. Wooly's is basically really good fast food, the line outside bears witness to this. You...wait in line to go up to the bar to order food. If there is space on the patio a very helpful staff member will find you a seat, if not they package the food to go. Wooly's has the best menu on the pier, everything from Fish Tacos to large Hamburgers.More
