Description: Just steps away from the beautiful Avila Beach, Custom House offers a casual dining experience with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Come and have a drink at our cocktail bar, or dine on our patio while gazing out across the beautiful San Luis Bay. With favorites like fresh fish, hand cut steaks, refreshing salads and our specialty appetizers, our menu has something for everyone. Our food is prepared with the utmost attention to quality. We receive fresh meat, vegetables and fruit daily. With our kitchen only steps away from the ocean, we are able to serve the absolute freshest seafood available. At Custom House, an excellent dining experience is our top priority. Our Central Coast beach-side location holds beautiful views with a casual atmosphere, the perfect spot for a meal with family and friends.

My family and I ate at the Custom House this weekend during a quick visit to the coast. The Custom House was busy, but got us a table in the back corner. They must have forgotten about us because after a long wait, we had to get up and find someone to take our order. The server was very apologetic and the food was very good with large portions. Prices are decent too. The food did take a while to get to us as well, so I'd say overall the food was good, but wait and service was very slow.

We wanted a breakfast at 10:30-11:00 and this seemed to be one of the better options. The service was great and the salmon omelet was outstanding. It is not a quiet place but it is good people watching.

Well this place have to improve some things, but is not excellent, can you have a decent meal here? Yes.

We try the burger, was ok not bad, the fish and chips, the flatbread I think was the best. Service was not bad but need to hire more people, this is a big restaurant.

But you can eat well.

The last time I was here, I had a burger that was below
average. The waiter seemed to go thru the motions but
appeared to dislike either his job or me. Quite awhile
ago, I went with a group of people & the food was just
average. The high point of one visit was the discovery
of Fossil Hills local wine, which was served by the glass.
