Bee House Thai Cuisine Review - Grover Beach

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Monday, March 7, 2022, In : Restaurants 
(Note: They don't open until past noon and close on Thursdays. Continue to read to see my review from a past visit at Bee House Thai Cuisine below.)

I visited Bee House Thai Cuisine for the first time last week to pick up my take out order. They are located in the same spot where Sister Kitchen used to be! As you step in, you can feel the new restaurant vibe.


The area is sleek and there is a unisex restroom that I spotted right away. The order was done in 20 minutes like they said on the p...

Bunn Thai Bistro Restaurant in Grover Beach Review

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Monday, January 3, 2022, In : Restaurants 
There are a few Thai restaurants in Grover Beach but Bunn Thai is our favorite! Their food is authentic and the decor inside is warm and welcoming with pink walls!

They also have great lunch specials. We've dined there for lunch and have done many take outs for lunch and dinner. It's always a great experience each time. I've tried their Thai fried rice, pad see ew noodles, seafood sizzling plate, curry and a couple of their appetizers.


The only thing that I feel uneasy about is that it's lo...

Oyster Loft in Pismo Beach Review

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Sunday, January 2, 2022, In : Restaurants 
Last year in 2021, we were able to plan 3 date nights, which is more than usual for us in any given year! For one of these date nights, we ate at Oyster Loft in Pismo Beach!

We didn't have reservations and just walked in around 5:20PM and luckily there was a table available. Once we were seated, it didn't take long for the other tables to fill up so I highly recommend making a reservation ahead of time! We were just lucky that they had room for us. 

Oyster Loft is located on the second sto...

AJ Spurs is great for families and steaks

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Saturday, May 29, 2021, In : Restaurants 
My collage below is a collection of photos taken by me at AJ Spurs in Grover Beach, California.

I had been eyeing AJ Spurs off the 101 highway exit in Grover Beach for years but just never had the opportunity to dine there. It's pricey and like a type of place for a special occasion. Earlier this month, we've finally went!

We've actually dined at the AJ Spurs in Buellton before we dined at this Grover Beach location. The decor is similar but I feel like maybe this place feels much bigger! The...

Dutch Bros Review in Arroyo Grande

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, In : Restaurants 
Located on the same side of the Starbucks on Grand Ave., Dutch Bros is a refreshing alternative for getting coffee. The high-spirited staff will get you excited as you're greeted for ordering coffee with their mobile device!

The lines can get long but there were two lanes when I arrived yesterday in the drive-thru. There were four ladies walking around getting orders so it made the process of ordering so efficient and fast. If you don't know what you're going to order when one of them gets to...

Robin's Restaurant in Cambria

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Saturday, July 25, 2020, In : Restaurants 

We drove to Cambria earlier this week to enjoy some sightseeing in our county. We live in the South County part of San Luis Obispo County so driving to the North County part is a nice change. 

With the Covid-19 pandemic causing a second round of closures for San Luis Obispo County, many restaurants with patios and outdoor dining spaces are more popular since indoor dining is not allowed at this time. We went to Robin's Restaurant in Cambria to enjoy a very nice lunch in their garden dining ar...

Tropical Hawaiian BBQ Arroyo Grande Review

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Saturday, February 15, 2020, In : Restaurants 
Yesterday, on Valentine's Day, we decided to try out the new Hawaiian restaurant in Arroyo Grande called Tropical Hawaiian BBQ. It's located in the same shopping center as another Hawaiian place that serves coffee and food called Red Dirt Coffee House. They are not the same owners, however.

I'm happy to say that Tropical Hawaiian BBQ is exactly what I think a Hawaiian restaurant would be like. The menu includes katsu chicken, loco moco, kalbi ribs and other Hawaiian entrees. I ordered the Dail...

The Rooftop at Inn at the Pier Hotel in Pismo Beach

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Monday, July 15, 2019, In : Restaurants 
A dear friend from the Bay Area came down and visited me. I wanted to take her to a special place where a successful yuppie like her would appreciate. After some research online, I decided to take her to The Rooftop at Inn at the Pier hotel in Pismo Beach that overlooks the pier and ocean. It was absolutely the right pick!

The entrance to the hotel took a bit of time to figure out because it's on the opposite end of the beach parking lot. However, once we got on the property, I instantly fel...

Ventana Grill's Panoramic Beach and Cliff Views

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Friday, July 12, 2019, In : Restaurants 
 (Photo taken at Ventana Grill by SanLuisObispoMom.com)
Before my family and I moved to the San Luis Obispo area, my husband was raving about the dinner spot that his company took him after his final interview. They had flown him from South Carolina, where we had lived, to come to San Luis Obispo for this new job opportunity. It didn't take him long after that to make his decision. He wanted to move here and be able to see this panoramic view with me. 

We had moved here in January 2019 so it ha...

Street Food Finds in SLO

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Friday, June 21, 2019, In : Restaurants 
There is just something really refreshing about street food that makes eating out so exciting. Although street food is illegal around here, like you know bringing out your pots of food and selling it on the corner of a street type, the many city-run farmers markets around San Luis Obispo area and the authentic little restaurant stands give the very same exciting feel.

You get to eat out on the streets or buy it and take it home while it's still piping hot. Here some of the great street food fi...

The Galley Seafood Grill in Morro Bay Review

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Friday, May 3, 2019, In : Restaurants 
We had a visitor in town and decided to take our special guest to Morro Bay to see the Morro Rock, sea otters, seals and have some lunch at The Galley Seafood Grill & Bar


It's the ideal place to take a visitor because it is right on the bay with views of all of the above: Morro Rock, sea otters, seals and more. We saw people kayaking while we were in our seats inside the restaurant. It's such a special experience. Moreover, their food is spot on with local classics such as clam chowder, fish a...

Recommended Asian Cuisines in San Luis Obispo (SLO) County

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Monday, January 14, 2019, In : Restaurants 
Mee Low Heng Noodle House - Located in downtown San Luis Obispo, Mee Low Heng serves noodle soups and stir fry noodles.
Try their dumplings as an appetizer. They put it in a hot and sour sauce that's delicious! The place is small but the building is uniquely 2 stories and reminds me of the medieval Chinese era. Many order take out as well. Address: 815 Palm St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401

Fay's Fusion - Located in Pismo Beach, near the Pier, is a boba shop called Fay's Fusion. This place is legit...
