Flagship Review in Pismo Beach (Now Vista Steak and Seafood)

Posted by on Tuesday, January 7, 2020 Under: Restaurants
(2022 Update: Flagship closed indefinitely and is a new restaurant named Vista. Review below is for Flagship but the beach views are the same! Enjoy the views!)

Flagship is a seafood restaurant located in Pismo Beach, California (part of San Luis Obispo County). It has phenomenal views of the Pismo Beach Pier and the Shell Beach side as well. Check out these views from our seats.

If you get to sit right by the window, this place could be so memorable for a special lunch or dinner. They had a kid's menu that came with many options. They also have a boat in the middle where guests can sit in but our stroller wasn't going to fit up there so we sat at a booth by the window! It was chosen for us because of our big double side-by-side stroller and our kids were going to continue to sit in it during our lunch.

My husband chose the ahi tuna while I went big and went for the Dungeness crab pot boil!
(Ahi Tuna dish had a good portion)
(my crab boil was 1 lb of Dungeness crab with potatoes and corn in Cajun sauce)

The food was fresh and fantastic! I had four choices for sauce for the crab boil and I picked the original Cajun. It was delicious and I had no regrets!

Flagship has a unique atmosphere and service too. Their operations are efficient and the servers are prompt and friendly. When you are ready to order your food, you put this pirate flag up! That idea entertained the kids.

They also have a bar area and serve specialty cocktails, beer and wine. There were also local options too.

Flagship address: 1601 Price St, Pismo Beach, CA 93449

Vista Steak and Seafood

My family and I have visited Vista Steak and Seafood (formerly Flagship) for a few times now and I've to say that they are pretty solid. I've ordered their sea bass and my 2 kids typically share a pizza from the kid's menu as they usually bake a whole pizza pie for that. Here is a picture of my sea bass dish below:
