    Passing thru Pismo and had a wonderful dinner at Adas. We split an order of clams in a white wine sauce that was very tasty. I had delicious scallops, pan seared perfectly. My husband enjoyed sand dabs with a lemon and capers sauce. Enjoyed a bread pudding desert with ice cream and a bourbon sauce that was so yummy. The highlight of our dining experience, however, was the service! We sat at a high top in the bar and the bartender waited on us. She was so delightful and friendly. She and another bartender, a nice young man, handled the bar and food service for that area with a calm and easy going manner that was great to see. Would definitely dine here again in the future!

    The food and the service and the view were superb. I did think there would be more seafood options on the lunch menu. My chicken panini was very good!!!

    The meal was excellent but one of the meals was delayed by 10 minutes. May be a little better time management by the chef. Just a thought.

Discover Pismo Beach

Pismo Beach is located along the California Central Coast, making it a popular stop for tourists and locals alike. Pismo Beach pancakes are a savory favorite for breakfast. Usually drenched in syrup, butter, and sugars, the batter follows a secret recipe that has been passed down for generations. Pismo Beach fish and chips is another delicacy made perfectly for lunch. The coast is a terrific place to find seafood, and at nearby fish markets, restaurants are able to purchase the freshest catches of the day. Accompanied by crispy, salted chips, this is a signature dish on the beach. Pismo Beach is home to mom-and-pop eateries that go back many generations. In addition to fish, seafood restaurants serving lobster and crab line both sides of the boardwalk.
