There is really nothing much open, you could drive back to the 101 and Arroyo Grande, but The Boardroom is open until 10 PM with the last food order taken at 9:30. This, a Sunday night, a few diners were here and we were at 9:26, four minutes to order. They seemed to be very serious about the time and... More

Good selection of beers. Friendly staff and locals! Small bar/restaurant, but within walking distance to the beach. If I lived here, I would definitely spend time here!

The atmosphere is beach casual and the service was easy going, friendly and prompt. The wine selection looked great, but don't go for whiskey- no hard liquor We enjoyed several hours... More

This was a return visit after many years. We had an enjoyable few beers and an appy, it was a shame that the main focus of the draft beers were IPAs which did not suit us.

My wife and I ate here on our road trip up the coast last October. We spoke about the burgers every day until we drove back south, and made a point of being there at lunchtime. VERY possibly the best hamburger I have ever had! Casual pub atmosphere, great beer. We will be going back again!

Staying at the Sandcastle this bar was in easy walking distance. No fried food but plenty of other great selections. Excellent food, well priced and very good service. Better than expected and thoroughly recommended for an easy evening meal or daytime snack.

Went here for a couple drinks. Both my friend and I enjoyed it. It was in the middle of the afternoon, so not sure how busy or loud it gets in the evening. They had a single, live performer who was easy to listen too. Thumbs up!!
