Pismo's Coastal Grill
Great stop for Surf & TurfTable was ready ontime even though the restaurant was very busy. Fried calamari appetizers arrived quickly, they were spicy with sweet chilli dipping sauce, very good. Main course was rib-eye and pan seared scallops, very tasty! Their seafood selection was amazing & fresh. I ordered their honey blonde ale with my meal, good tasting ale.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful as alwaysWe both had the sturgeon. This is the only place we mow that serves it and it was perfect. As always the service was excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, fresh and uniqueOffers a great menu with appetizers that are not offered anywhere else, think grilled artichoke with aeoli dip. Fish selection is excellent and hard to find in a central valley locale, freshness means they ship in daily and it shows. I like the atmosphere and the service is always excellent. We try and eat here at least once a month and since that means a one drive from Merced to get to Pismo's our loyalty is always rewarded.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out with momFantastic food and time as always. Service was perfect!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTo say good-bye or not!We were looking for someplace casual as we were bidding adieu to a lovely Fresno Friend, who will shortly be moving to Tucson, AZ! We were not disappointed in our choice. A lively restaurant with choices to satiate any appetite! We all had something different in mind for lunch and we were all able to have our hearts desires fulfilled!
Each of us cleaned our plates and were wholly satisfied!
Our waitress even brought over a dessert thinking we were celebrating a birthday because we had gifts in tow for our departing friend. We all decided it was our birthday and happily ate the chocolate brownie with whipped cream! THANK YOU PISMO'S!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but.....The food was great but there were things that detracted from the overall experience. The noise level was terrible. I think the interior of the restaurant was designed to amplify it. While we were dining, they opened all the windows and turned on the musters. After some fires in the area and the overall poor air quality in Fresno, this drove the allergies of some in our party crazy. If I go back, it will be in the winter months so I can a kid the outside dining experience.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOut of Town FriendsEveryone was super nice and food was great! - We had out of town friends - and we wanted to visit and enjoy each others company along with good food and drinks.

Only negative was making a reservation for 5:30 and upon our prompt arrival, we still had to wait approximately 5 minutes for our table.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the BEST in FresnoPismo's continues to be one of the best in Fresno. Not only is the food great but when a reservation is made, they stay pretty close to it. Many other places in Fresno take reservations but never come close. This was for our anniversary so we wanted something special and we got it and more.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were good. The noise level can get load at time.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the calamari and scallopsI had the calamari and scallops with asparagas salad. The calamari was tender and breaded just right the scallops were seared to perfection and the asparagas salad was cruncy and tasty. My wife had the morracan salmon which was an interesting and tasty alternative to plain broiled. We shared the pineapple upside down cake and while she was looking for the plain old style we both agreed that Pismo's version was light and very tasty.
We will be back and have mentioned it to others as a place for fresh fish dishes.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Fish & Great ServiceWe love Pismo's. It is the best place to get fresh fish in Fresno. Although it can be a little noisy, it is easy to tune out and in the spring when the windows are rolled up it is a very neat feel. The wait-staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Service is quick without being rushed.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy guets and I were very pleasedMy guets and I were very pleased with the food and the service3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA seafood GEMI just LOVE this place. I eat here at least twice each time I visit Fresno. The seafood Louie salad is " to die for" and I've never had anything that I would rate less than excellent.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest clam chowder and great serviceI have never had bad or even mediocre food at Pismos. It is on the pricey side but the money is well spent!! The service is always great and they have the best CLAM CHOWDER. Even better than many soups you find at the coast!!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time andThis was our first time and it won't be our last. Friends have been recommending this to us for awhile. We enjoyed immensely the Ahi appetizers. And will order them again. All of our guest loved the food. We had no complaints. I like the Seafood Counter where you can purchase fresh also. Thanks.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Restaurant!Pismo's is just a great restaurant. My wife and I and friends have been there several times now and it has become one of our absolute favorite restaurants. I like everything about it. The seafood is superb and I especially like the windows to the kitchen where you can see the expert staff preparing their specialities. And the service is beyond reproach. Amanda has been our waitress several times and she is a treasure. I look forward to trips to Fresno just to go to Pismo's. Superb!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPismo's is worth the trip to FresnoPismo's is another hit for Mr. Fanzler, the noted Fresno entrepreneur. We celebrated Mom's birthday and had a wonderful time due to the ambiance, fine food and attentive service. The food is fresh, delicious and just a little different to make the experience 'fresh'. The fish market near the entrance sets the stage that Pismo's is serious about fresh fish. Pismo's (like Mr. Fanzler's other concepts) has that certain corporate finish and polish without being a cookie-cutter company 'copy and paste' with no soul. The prices are steep, with one would expect considering the daily fresh entrees. Pismo's is a winner.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
