This was the worst clam chowder we've ever had... they forgot the clams and everything else. It was like eating a paste of flour and milk, no flavor whatsoever.
The sandwich was good but it's pretty hard to screw up a sandwich.

I've only had breakfast here but it has always been very good. This is my wife's favorite place to take visiting guest because of its views. When its chilly out they have an outdoor section with a plexiglass windbreak that allow you to sit outside and tale full advantage of their dockside location. We like the eggs benedict and you can't go wrong with the breakfast burrito either.

I like to camp at Pismo Beach and each time I do, I take my 2 dogs to Morro Bay to get some fresh fish at Giovanni's. Walking up the dockside walkway one visit, I happened on Blue Skye with dog-friendly seating outside. I ordered the 1/2 sandwich and cup of clam chowder and I was blown away at how really good it all was. The sandwich was built with care and the chowder was amazing! Now, I add that to my "must do" itinerary when I camp. The food is terrific and the service is first class... VERY friendly and prompt. Oh.. and the atmosphere is terrific, sitting by the sailboats, the view of the Rock and the barking sea lions, you find yourself saying "Life is good!"
