“Fabulous Central Coast Experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

Great local steakhouse with healthy portions and cool ambiance! You feel like an old school cattle rancher with all the decor and branding implements.

The food is terrific California grilled beef. Happy hour has amazing dishes at $3 a plate. We have enjoyed many special meals here with friends from around the world and birthdays with family. Take your time and enjoy the views and cowboy culture.

I can recommend just about any dish. I have not had a bad meal here and the service is always friendly and on the spot. McClintocks is a must do stop if you are visiting the central coast. Enjoy your meal, walk around the place and loosen the belt.

“DELICIOUS!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

Hubby and I went here for dinner our last night in Pismo Beach. We were seated almost immediately.

Our serves name was Tonya, she was EXCELLENT!!

I had their Oak Pit BBQ Ribs and hubby had their 8oz. Top Sirloin. Both of our dinners were exceptional and large portions!! I ended up bringing most of my ribs back to the hotel room with us because I was stuffed with the 2 huge ones I ate! Not to mention the delicious side dishes and desert that was served. I had the mint chocolate chip ice cream and hubby had the after dinner Liqueur.

Their meals are pricey, but the portions and service makes it well worth it.

“Fabulous, Fun Atmosphere and Great Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

For a great steak in a fun atmosphere, McLintock's Dining House in Shell Beach is the place to go. Featuring a cowboy bar with a country singer/guitar player and rustic decor, McLintock's offers a great western-style meal. The Filet is fabulous and my husband really enjoys the Ragin' Rib Eye. If you like to have fun and feel like some "Cowboy Gourmet" this is the place to go.

“Noisy and expensive.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

My wife and I arrived for 7PM reservations and were promptly seated. We requested a quiet table but were seated next to a table of 12 girls, probably 11-14 years old, carrying on conversations from one end of a long table to the other end. Since the volume of ambient noise in the entire restaurant was already high we chose to remain at our table. At this point a staff client game began. The chosen client, seated, held an empty glass on her head while a blindfolded waitress perched on a ladder attempted to pour water from a pitcher into the glass following the shouted instructions from the other girls at the table. The noise was over the top. We asked for another table and were grudgingly re-seated at a "quieter" table. Within 10 minutes the water game was repeated not once but twice in our section of the restaurant. By then we had already ordered so decided to give up on conversation. The food was promptly served but was average in flavor. The online menu did not include prices. The steaks ranged from $28-45. The dinners did include onion rings and baked beans. We wished we would have gone a little farther south and had steaks at Jocko's in Nipomo.

“Good Ribeye”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

I've been to McLintocks a few times and they definitely have their own unique atmosphere. The food is good and consistent, which is great! The ribeye was tender and McLintocks beans are amazing. It isn't the best steakhouse I've ever bent to, but it's quite good.
