This was by far my favorite place in Pismo! Live music, extremely generous portions, great service, and a beautiful view of the ocean! We shared one meal since there was so much food. The sides come family style and there was plenty. A must see if you're in town! Awesome!

“Great food for the price!!!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Beware of the portions when you arrive because they are HUGE!!! There were 5 of us and everyone got steak and none of us could even finish our plates. The gave us 2 pans full of ranch potatoes which was delicious but its was too much!

I would recommed participating in the water goggles, which was really fun!

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

My husband and I decided to take a quick getaway for our 6 year anniversary and we decided to try McLintock's out! We live in the valley and go to Pismo all the time but have never tried it. We made reservations for 7:30 and when we got there we were informed our table wasn't ready and they directed us to wait in the bar. We ordered some drinks and just enjoyed hanging out, we didn't even notice the time. By 7:55 the manager came in and apologized and bought our first round of drinks! We let him know it wasn't a big deal as we were just enjoying each others company but he insisted. It was such a nice gesture! I've worked in the restaurant business for years now and it's always enjoyable to be taken great care of! Dinner was amazing, we ordered our steaks rare and they came out amazing! It was delicious! lots of food and lots of fun!!! We will definitely be back!!! :) Try the artichokes!!!!

“Good Food & Service And Plenty Of Each”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This Shell Beach location is my favorite of all the McLintock’s on the Central Coast and probably my favorite restaurant ON the Central Coast. My wife & I opted for the Tri-Tip Steak which is accompanied by ranch style beans, mashed potatoes, bread and salsa. Our medium rare steaks were cooked to perfection and well seasoned, as was everything else. McLintock’s has kept things simple over the years. They specialize in a limited menu and they do everything well. They also have a nice gift shop where you can purchase raw steaks for take-out, salsa, jams & jellies, denim aprons and even ‘rubber-band guns’ for the children. For an unexpected treat, have the 'water boy' fill your water glass on top of your head while standing blindfolded, on a chair behind you. It's a great treat the entire family will enjoy. For a romantic dinner, ask for a window table overlooking the ocean around sunset.

Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

The food here is cooked to perfection. My kids love the way they pour the water from over their head to the glasses. The service is fantastic! The view is beautiful! We come here anytime we are near.
