Calamari Caesar Salad

Such a great twist on salad! This restaurant is amazing and it's a shame that we can no longer dine in the actual restaurant at this moment in time. Definitely recommend it and will be coming back soon

Famous White Cod & Chips

Fried to perfection since 1963, Pismo Fish and Chips' Famous White Cod and Chips is a must have. Piece numbers varied, so my meal was the perfect size. The fried shrimp which I got to try is also freakin' yummy. In fact, the food was so yummy, I bought a T-shirt to advertise. I'd have bought a zip-up hoodie, but the sizes were too large when I was there. So, to the owners, I'll be back for a small hoodie and more great food, fun, and that addicting IQ game when I'm looking for a memorable meal in Pismo.

Rib-Eye Steak Sandwich

My entree is not listed above! I had the Ribeye and Shrimp dinner. The shrimp and their batter was tasty. The ribeye, although thin, was tasty as well. It is difficult to cook a really thin steak to medium rare. Mine ended up on the medium side. All in all we enjoyed our dinners.

Our favorite spot for seafood in the Pismo area. Their chowder is the best & serving sizes leave plenty to share.

Fish Tacos

We had the coconut shrimp to start which was amazing!!! Then we had the fish tacos which we had been craving all day and we were in heaven! Even our 1 year old son was begging for more! Great service, even better food. Ten out of ten stars for sure

Fried Shrimp

The fried shrimp was one of the best seafood dishes I've ever had. The fries were hot and fresh and the shrimp portions were very generous. Will definitely order this again next time I'm in town. Loved it.

Famous White Cod & Chips

My parents have always loved this restaurant. I can still remember coming here as a kid and being like .."fish? Ew gross! No thank you" and happily enjoyed a cheeseburger and fries. It wasn't until I was in highschool that I ended up applying to work here and was given a job bussing tables. I remember one night as it got closer to closing I had expressed interest in growing within the company as a host/ server that the owner Janie asked me "well tell me what do u think about our fish?" I stood there as I felt my face turn beat red thinking to myself (eek I don't eat fish) I couldn't just lie and say I liked it. So I explained that I had never had their fish but the burger was great! Haha. To my surprise janie pulled me aside and told me "if you are gonna work here and you want to grow you will need to know what our fish tastes like so you can appropriately suggest items to guest." She sat me down and ordered me a piece of fish it was Cajun no batter with a peppercorn. (Unfortunately it is no longer a menu available item) however that night changed my entire perception of fish and let me tell you I was in love with the fish and chips and 20 years later I still am. My family and friends still make a weekly visit to the restaurant to enjoy the fish and chips not the cheeseburger. :) Ps although the Cajun style is no longer available. You can still order your fish with or without batter and u won't be disappointed. Even with the new owners and management the food consistency has truly stayed the same and that speaks volumes a true gem of a restaurant. 🎣

These are the best fish and chips in all of Pismo. The batter that comes on the fish is light and crisp. All of the other restaurants have soggy batter.

Famous White Cod & Chips

I've been eating here since I was a kid. We are local and this is the only place my family will get Fish and Chips at because they do it right. The atmosphere is family friendly, and they have a great selection of other items, but we always end up ordering the Fish and Chips because they are the best.

My husband and I discovered Pismo fish and chips three months ago. The quality is superior and the service friendly and homey. The only bummer is when we showed up on a Monday and learned that they were closed on Monday. But that's OK we will adapt.

Coconut Shrimp

So this is like the best way to end your day not only is the food true to the photos but it's cooked right . Grab 2 of these and head to the ocean for the sunset they are good size not to tuff and the sauce is the boss . Lots of fish places in pismo but this one is worth supporting .

Hubby and I tried the fish and chips.. Amazing!! We were on our long walk and had never eaten here, got a to go order.. Even though we had to eat them cold by the time we got back to our car, the portion was large and it was so yummy! We can't wait to try in restaurant seating while it's still nice and hot!!

Salmon & Chips

This place is so good!! I'm not usually a battered fish kind of person but my bestie made me come here and it was A-MA-ZINGGGG! I love getting the salmon and chips. So delicious! It's always cooked to perfection and they never cut corners here. The side salad is even something we look forward to when we come! The chowder is great, different than other seafood places which is a nice change of flavor. The service is always great, they are quick which is great if you're in a hurry but if you're not, they never make you feel like the table is needed for other guests if your still enjoying conversation after a meal. My favorite server is Juan, he always gets remembers us and is so quick but friendly and kind. Maria is a sweetheart too and is also an amazing server, but really they are so great at this place anyone who serves you won't disappoint. Another thing I like about this place is how clean everything is. We come here every other week and I could come more often if I could. Everyone must try this place out you will not leave disappointed! The prices are very reasonable and worth the experience for sure. Come and try it out, you'll thank me later!
