My brother and his wife have a place in Avila beach and they took us here for a anniversary dinner. The food and service was great. I love the tables with the glass bottoms so you can see the water and the mushroom are wonderful. We ate to many!

My hubby and I went for our anniversary, our first time there. It was awesome just to get there driving on the pier, the waitress ( i think selena was her name) was very nice and patient to help us to choose our food which it was delicious! !! She also was kind to take us a pic together (i... More

With the feel of old Avila this unique restaurant on the end of a pier is a must for any visitor to Avila. The fisherman's platter was a great choice. The peach cobbler was so so. The otter dining outside our window was too cute. Friendly waiter in a relaxed atmosphere.

Traveling the coast of California we were recommended to eat at Olde Port Inn. Glad we did. We had a party of nine and they were quite accommodating. Being from Florida, we are used to beach views but the views from the pier and dining room are spectacular. Food was very good but, nothing to write home about as it... More

Interesting dining to the sounds of seals and decor of this establishment, drinks priced on the high side.

We visited for lunch as a group of six and were very pleased we did. It is interesting to read the wildly varying views below; obviously we had a very good day! The food was lovely, the server friendly, attentive and all round professional; I thought the prices were OK too. All in all a lovely meal with great views.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend so we decided to splurge and try it. Inside was uncomfortably hot and stuffy. Our seafood combo dinner was a big pile on the plate with potatoes and soggy veggies mixed up with seafood. Calamari on bottom got soggy. Not presented very pretty. Curry in potatoes didnt go well with seafood. For over... More

Hubby and I went here for our anniversary. They put a little sign on our table and that was that. To begin with we ordered clam chowder and a crab cake. The crab cake was cooked on one side and raw on the other. It was so mushy, of course we sent it back. We did not bother to order... More

I have been coming here for years and have always touted this as the best crab cakes in California. I was disappointed today with gooey cakes. But the service is adequate albeit a little slow (after repeated requests for no straw in my drink, no compliance) and the view is amazing so worth the walk out the pier.

Thank Brandon W
