I love the Sea Shanty because it has a casual, laid back feeling just like the town itself. We travel to Cayucos a lot, and we always come here. It's nice to sit on the patio if the weather is good, and if not, it's fun to look at the hats while eating inside, too. I always like the food. This trip we went for breakfast and had a ham and cheese omelet and french toast. They were both really good. If you have a party of more than 5, definitely call for reservations because they don't have a ton of tables inside. There are kid friendly menu options, and there is a small park across the street where they can play after eating. It's also walking distance from many of the motels in Cayucos. The women's bathroom is surprisingly large and nicely decorated.

On a return visit to Cambria, our group of friends had to have lunch at the Sea Shanty. Our idea was to share a burger or the fish & chips so we could enjoy one of the huge, delicious deserts. Always nice to support a local restaurant.

Great place for a quick lunch, especially if you like good chowder, fish & chips, and still have room dessert. If you are lucky enough to be there when they have the fried oyster sandwich, order it. Usually there is only one waitress so the service may be a little slow but what's the hurry, you're in Cayucos.

I highly recommend having breakfast or brunch here and its also worth a trip just for one of their desserts. Their normal lunches and dinners are nothign special. I have had a soggie burger here before which was disappointing, but the general dinners are pretty good. I've never had an awful experience here but the food is defenitly one of the best in town. Is a good place for families and couples.

This old place has great fish dishes--the tacos stand out.

Sort of a cross between very casual and sit-down diner menu. The dessert offerings are spectacularly creative--and spectacularly calorific...

Resembles a converted gas station, still sporting some old signage.

Prices are quite reasonable. Usually not crowded.
