Probably the best restau in avila beach. Small menu, (always a good sign) only local food and wine, great taste and I would defenitely recommend it to others.

This will be your "go to place" once you have tried it. Delicious tacos and there own pizza oven make for a fun dinning experience. And the view is just a plus. This is not your beachgoers burger palace but a serious step up from the norm.

Thoroughly enjoyed the newest addition to the Avila food options. Our server, Alexis, nailed the service and provided great advice on menu items. We stayed on the appetizer list and were happy with stuffed squash blossoms, tuna tataki and mussels and fries!

The ambiance is great on the patio or inside. We sat in the only table outside of the gate and enjoyed the view and vibe.

The food is great and our service was great. When you combine that with a cool place things only get better.

Enjoy!

This is a great place to go - they mix interesting foods to get a great result. I had excellent mussels topped with garlic fries and it was delicious. They have semi-outdoor seating so it's warm, but you still get to enjoy a patio/outdoor/on the beach feel.

Driving back from Monterey we decided to stop in San Luis Obispo for dinner. Thursday night when the market is going, forget about parking so we decided to try the next exit and came across Avila Beach. With only 2 restaurants there, we chose The Ocean Grill. We found a welcoming and friendly Hostess, nice atmosphere and a view of the pizza oven that kept the 2 and 4 year old entertained. Our waitress, Alexis was very personable and knowledgeable about the menu. It was busy and our order of pizza for the kids did take a little time but the manager came over and offered a free order of the chowder- which was delicious. We really weren't in any hurry - I was enjoying the atmosphere and view of the sunset while drinking great local wine. I (from upstate New York) have been enjoying the fresh California avocados while visiting, so I requested avocado to be added to the strawberry salad on the menu and the chef did! My niece who lives in Santa Barbara will be returning with her husband now that she has dined there.
