I was so impressed with the customer service. All the hostess are extremely kind. Food was great and a great view of the sunset.

Everything was great. Only down side was I ordered my steak medium well and I got it rare. They took it back while I filled up on the sides and my wife finished well before me.

We make it a point to eat here at least once every time we travel to Pismo. It is a favorite of ours and did not disappoint us in this trip.

Surprisingly it was not as exceptional as last time. The drinks weren't strong and the steaks were disappointing. The service was professional though.

Extremely expensive for the good offered. It was a saloon with new York city prices.

Excellent food and service. Would definitely recommend and go again.

Made reservation through open table but restaurant didn't us on their reservation list when we arrived. Had to show app/confirmation. Hostess was not very friendly. Wait staff was great!

Still no points open table reservation!?!

We visit the area every year or so and always make it a point to visit McLintocks. It is a fun and friendly place to dine. Food was great and steaks were tender drinks were great. See you next time.

We celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary at McLintock's last night and had a great time. Food and service was very good - a little more expensive than we're used to, but a lot of extras were included in the price, including dessert. When I made the reservation via Open Table, I made a comment that this was our wedding anniversary and asked if they can do anything special. Without further conversation, they brought both of us huge ice cream sundaes, which were delicious!! Way above and beyond expectations.

Note: we were there on Friday night of Labor Day weekend. It was very quiet...apparently normal Fridays are very busy, but Fridays leading into a holiday weekend tend to be quiet (and Sat/Sun are very busy)

If you're brave, ask your waiter for a 'head pour'.

The food was very overpriced and the quality of things in the restaurant like the silverware and the chairs was horrifying. The plates they served us on were way to small for the food, not to mention the waitress forgot one of our steaks and when it did come out it was absolutely raw. I don't think I will ever be going back.

We've dined here several times over the past 14 years and have never had a bad experience. It was kind of funny dining off season and only seeing the place 3/4 full. During summer and on weekends it has a two hour wait.

Great food but you can't talk over the noise. Loud, loud, loud!!!

We always truly enjoy McLintocks. We only go on special occasions because, as much as we love it, it's too pricey for us. The steak was wonderful and my husband loved his pasta. Always love the Tan Ferrari, of course. It was our 50th wedding anniversary.

I have dined many times over the years at F. McLintocks and have had some very memorable meals there, mostly when we had a large group with family/friends. The staff can accommodate larger groups nicely and are always very friendly. It is still a great place for families with smaller children and is roomy enough to be comfortable. The food is still good, although on this occasion, both our steaks were cooked a little overdone for the order. I wouldn't worry about that. The wait staff were attentive enough, but on this trip seemed forgetful about any requests made by us and tables nearby even though it wasn't that busy. I would still recommend it, although it is not really the best steakhouse in the area now and might be a little overpriced for the overall experience.

Food was good, pricey so I would go there for a special occasion. We had the rub, shrimp and top sirloin combo..good however steak was not very good. Overall it's a good place to try.

A must for us when visiting Pismo Beach. Service & Food were excellent. It will continue to be part of our Pismo experience

We went for my birthday and it was perfect. My husband's New York steak was the best he ever eaten. My steak and lobster was perfect; cooked just the way I liked it.
The service was great and they sat us next to the window which was very romantic.
There was one thing though. We wanted our steaks, a baked potatoe, and a salad. Why can't we get just that?
Anyway, it was great and we will be back.
