“Great views, great food, fast service once seated”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

While it did take a while to be seated on a Monday night in July, we took out drinks out on the deck and enjoyed watching the whales frolic off the coast. Once seated, the service was fast and friendly. I had possibly the best salad of my life, the Calamari Salad. I highly recommend it!

“Magnificent view, good food”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

This is a very busy restaurant. We tried to make a reservation for a Wednesday evening and for a Thursday evening but we were too late. Walk in arriving at 7 pm on Wednesday was 1 hour waiting time. Arriving around 6.15 pm on Thursday was no problem and we had a table straight away. Food was good, friendly service, not cheap, but very nice view over the ocean.

“Wonderful dinner!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Great service, wonderful food, and outstanding views make this restaurant a must-visit when in Pismo Beach. The fondue dessert is a treat well worth the extra calories!

A good restaurant. Food was of a good quality, but maybe a bit on the large size. Location is fantastic, with great views. Even saw a whale passig!
