“Fun place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

The staff here is great. They made my meal here fun. It was one of the best burgers I have had in a long time. The fries were cooked to perfection. Just a great little place in one of my favorite places, Pismo Beach. Will be back.

“Basic food, great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We'd likely come back but it was really your "basic" lunch. The best part was the sports TV viewing.

The food was decent but basic. Price was reasonable. We'd go back.

“Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

The food was good and the service was more then adequate. The views from their back deck was great and included the Pismo pier. They are busy around the traditional lunch and dinner hours so make plans. They also have a great variety of draft beers.

“Great American Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

A great place to eat, nice surroundings and attentive waiting staff. We picked this placed to eat one evening and were seated in a window booth, so plenty of table room and easy to chat over our meal. The food was very good, lots of american cuisine to choose from, quick service and a nice family atmosphere. The decor is 1950's American Diner and located only a few yards away from the pier so you can walk off dinner easily enough.
