Oyster Loft in Pismo Beach Review by a Central Coast Local

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Sunday, January 2, 2022 Under: Restaurants
For one of our date nights, we ate at Oyster Loft in Pismo Beach! It's beachfront with a phenomenal view of the Pismo Beach Pier and ocean.

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 story. It's a beautiful restaurant with one of the best views of the Pismo Beach Pier and beach at a restaurant. The prices are high so come ready knowing that you will spend a lot of money. However, the ambiance and delicious food made it worth it.

For the appetizer, we asked for grilled oysters.

Then, I had the scallops while my husband ordered an octopus dish.

The portions are not large so I'm glad we did order an appetizer. Next time, we might order two appetizers instead of just one. They had specialty cocktails that were definitely mixed by a pro.

It was a such a romantic and wonderful place. I used to rank Ventana Grill as the best place for seafood by the beach in the Pismo Beach area but Oyster Loft got them beat! My husband and I agreed that this place would only be a once in awhile, special occasion visit for us! They are only open for dinner.

Oyster Loft Address: 101 Pomeroy Ave. Pismo Beach, CA 93449

2024 Update:

During Spring Break, we decided to come back to Oyster Loft to enjoy a nice family dinner since we weren't traveling anywhere this time. We got a chance to order dessert and they were delicious. We ordered two different ones and shared it between the four of us.

The dessert names were Caramel Basket and Creme Brûlée. Do make sure that you tell the servers ahead of time if you have any allergies. They were both delicious but I think the Caramel Basket was extraordinary because it had ice cream and banana flambee!

My 10 year old felt adventurous and ordered the Octopus from the Small Plates list and he liked it! He also ordered a kid's buttered noodles.

I also ordered something different for an entree as my main course and it was the Roasted Sea Bass and Mussels. The sauce was delicious and the portion was decent! Not pictured is my younger son's mac and cheese, in which my son didn't finished because he preferred my processed Kraft mac and cheese that I usually make at home (LOL). After visiting Oyster Loft for the second time, I can genuinely say, Oyster Loft might be the best restaurant for us in all of San Luis Obispo County! It's just pricey so it took us over 2 years to finally visit again! We can't wait to come back to Oyster Loft again in the future for another special occasion.
