First time eating at a McLintocks. This was delicious. Had a Ruben. Made to perfection. The meat was lean and tender and not too much bread. But the rye bread was good. The fries and streamed vegetables were near perfect. Service was food and fast. We would go back.

This used to be such a special treat, a dinner at McLintocks, now, it's over-priced, over-rated, touristy and a disappointment. We were seated right away after booking a reservation on Open Table, originally excited that we got a window seat to catch the sunset. Then we realized that we were one of the few diners in for the night. Service... More

As a bonus there is entertainment in the bar an excellent Guitar player and singer. He let me play two songs during his... More

We tried the barbequed tri tip and it was outstanding Now I see why the locals form a line to buy this moist and tender dish.

After a little over a year living in shell beach, we finally went to this steak house for a birthday party. I was dreading it due to all the negative comments I had heard. Overall I was pleasantly surprised. The service was very pleasant, the view great. We had over 10 people in our party and the wait staff did... More

I remember this place from my college days...I took my "Cal Poly" son here to experience the "country casual" atmosphere and "meat offerings" on the menu...The prices are a bit higher then I remember...includes all you can eat sides...and I had a great salad for dinner and dessert drink (Yum!). Great service too! The memories alone was worth coming back...

I have been coming here with my family for more than 40 years and I still love it. Our daughter loved it growing up and now her children enjoy coming here. The menu is extensive so there is something for everyone. I really like the steaks here. The drinks and the entertainment are also enjoyable. The Tan Ferrari never gets... More

We always stop by once a year when visiting Pismo Beach for dinner at this place. Food is good and the experience is fun. A bit overprices when compared to past years, but its a destination type place and you have to experience it. Come hungry and prepare to eat a lot.
