We had the pleasure of dining at AJ Spurs in Grover Beach on New Year's Eve. We had a large party (22 or so) but were seated after only about a 15 minute wait in the bar. (In total disclosure, we had a 5:30pm reservation so the restaurant had not hit its peak capacity yet).
Smartly, the restaurant assigned two servers to our table which sped up the ordering and serving process. Upon being seated, the servers brought out a bowl of their stew and beans as a starter. It was a hearty way to start to meal and prepared us for the delicious meal to come.
My husband and I shared the prime rib and I ordered the extra plate for $10.99. The extra plate includes all the sides (bread, salad, pilaf and red roasted potatoes) so it's a perfect option for those with a lighter appetite. I'm a big fan of prime rib and this was done to perfection. A lovely pink color throughout (just as I like it), moist, tender and flavorful.
Our kids enjoyed their meal as well - the pilaf with chicken strips was a big hit with my son and the fettuccine was enough to feed my 13 year old daughter and her friend!
From the conversations at our table I know that everyone was thoroughly enjoying their meat! The steaks, I was told, were delicious and the calamari steaks were large and very flavorful.
The only service issue we had was that it took a long time for drinks to arrive. I ordered a glass of wine midway through dinner but by the time it got to me we were moving to dessert. I declined and they graciously removed it from my bill.
The servers who took care of our party were very professional, courteous and friendly. We will definitely come back to AJ Spurs next year on our annual trip to the Pismo Beach area.
