We had reservations but decided to eat at the bar because the bartenders were all so attentive & knowledgeable. My husband tried a new Tequila called Pasote & I had the Coconut Mojito. We started with a cup of corn chowder soup & an order of Chili wings. Both were fantastic. For our main meal my husband tried the Shrimp... More

Turned up on a busy Monday night without a booking but the staff were accommodating and found me a table. Service was fast and efficient considering the place was packed at 7:00pm. I had the Mahi Mahi which was expertly cooked and delicious.

Outstanding salads, super fresh and enough to satisfy the heartiest appetites. Cocktails are the best ever. Large selections.

Our friends live in Pismo Beach and had visited the restaurant many times. They said we didn't need reservations on a Tuesday night but we should have had one. The food was good and unusual and reasonably priced. I asked our waitress to recommend something lite and she couldn't. Service during our visit was not good.

Amazing views of the ocean with brilliant sunsets. Enjoy amazing food while watching whales, dolphins, and sea otters frolicking in the waters.
