Description: SeaVenture Restaurant located on the beach in California's Central Coast wine country, the third floor Restaurant allows you to take in breathtaking sunsets and panoramic beach and ocean views from large picture windows and outdoor decks. Chef Casey Walcott's contemporary coastal cuisine is inspired by the surrounding local wine country. Our seasonal menu is prepared with locally farmed vegetables, premium pork and beef and the highest quality fish and seafood. All desserts are made in house from scratch.

Not much more to say, really. It can be a busy place, but there's no excuse for a waitress not showing my other half to our table, even though I'd expressly asked her to do so.

That meant she was left wandering around a busy restaurant with no idea where our table was, and led to a member of the bar staff barging into her and covering her in booze.

If I was a little less British and more inclined to make a scene, by God, the management would've heard about it. So I'll vent my fury semi-anonymously on the internet instead. That'll show them.

Anyway, the food was serviceable, and probably a step up from the deep-fried guff served everywhere else in the town.

Really fresh and creative dishes. Could not believe I was eating this well for about $25 a main course

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, and the short walk (staying next-door at the Sandcastle Inn) decided to give the Sea Venture Restaurant a try. Unfortunate that I didn't get there before dark, as their view overlooking the beach and Pacific would have been breathtaking. The chef graciously accomodated my special request - broiled salmon (though none was listed anywhere on the menu) added to the Caesar Salad - and it was delicious. I was a bit surprised that the fish selections were very limited. Service was good, but not great. Overall, a pleasant dinner.

The view was beautiful, the outside balcony was perfect, the service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We spent a week in Pismo and dined at this restaurant 3 times and enjoyed it each time.
