“Nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Lovely view! The service was very good, I had the shrimp and chips which was good. Wait time was about 20 minutes from order to food delivery. I would recommend this restaurant, however, I wouldn't rave about it.

Seven of us had a wonderful dinner to celebrate a college graduation. Everyone had a delicious meal. Kind staff, wonderful food with a beautiful view. We couldn't have asked for a better evening!

“Steamers of Pismo Beach...B-”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

My wife took me to Steamers in Pismo Beach for my birthday. God love her, she's great...but Steamers wasn't.

Pros: The view...probably doesn't get better, but that's typical for any beach front restaurant in Pismo Beach, too.

Cons: The clam chowder...once again, this place had clam chowder about one step above Campbell's soup. I don't get it. I had the filet mignon with mashed potatoes. The steak was...well...I've done a lot better with local grocery store (Stater Bros or Ralph's) steaks at home. I don't consider myself to be a master chef, trust me. But when you order a steak medium rare and it shows up medium well...well...but the mashed potatoes were good. I ate all of those, the steak got put in a bag.

Cocktails...the usual "Oh, you wanted a real drink for your birthday?"
"Uh, yeah, you know, since I'm walking 400 yards to my hotel next door I thought I could handle a real cocktail with more than half a shot in it. And what's up with the clam chowder?"
"What do you mean?"

Ok, then we get to dessert...Creme Brulee...that was decent.
My wife's chicken dish was great. Wish I'd ordered that.

And then the coup de gras...ready? After griping about the clam chowder, what did they bring me for my birthday present? You guessed it, a can of their clam chowder with a candle on it.

Would I go again. Nope, not even if someone else was paying. My wife apologized to me, that's how mundane dinner was here.

Oh well, the good news is that the Splash Cafe has real clam chowder. Go there instead, and get a burger. Save $60, even if you're not paying.
