Went here with my sister and we ordered the halibut fish and chips. In addition to the pungent smell of fish that was past its prime, the fish itself was dry, yellow on the edges and tasteless. The batter around the fish was thick, doughy, and also tasteless. The only flavor came from the vinegar and catsup. Won't be going... More

Classic fish and chips. Good food and friendly staff. Don't miss the onion ring tower. French dip good too. Only a short walk from Pismo's famous pier.

Their homemade tartar... More

Most everyone from central Cali (including me) raves about Splash in Pismo Beach as the best clam chowder EVER but I have been educated. The best chowder is definitely at Pismo Fish & Chips. I had a bowl with crab meat on top. It was much more than I would normally eat but once back in KY there will be... More

I love this place. I come here every time I am in Pismo, and that is because it is hands down the best fish and chips I have ever had. It comes highly recommended! Also, affordable starting at $13 for 2 pieces and fries.

We were seated right away decided to try their seafood soup which was a generous serving and quite good. We shared a four piece portion of fish and chips. It was served hot and was prepared just the way we like it. Very good service and value

This is a family and tourist friendly joint. It feels like a roadside stand, in a good way. Very casual. Loud and busy and nobody cares because you get good food close to the beach. I'd go again. We went two nights in a row. The first night we sat by the window watching the world go by and the... More

Every time we go to Pismo Beach we try to have fish and chips here. Family has been going there for many years. Mom loves the tower of onion rings but it's the fish that we come for. Big pieces with a crunchy batter but not greasy. Fish can be ordered without batter. Chips leave you a little disappointed compared... More
