Cute little restaurant at the end of the pier with great views. The portions were large and tasty. Never saw so much crab in a sandwich before. Fried appetizer plate with calamari, bacon wrapped shrimp and crab cake was excellent.

We love it here! The view of the mountains and boats, especially at sunset, is beautiful! You can also see tons of sea lions, otters, and the occasional leopard seal as you walk down the pier! The food is to die for! Obviously all the...More

The food is fine, but the location is superb -- out at the end of what is known as the San Port San Luis Pier next to Avila Beach about 11 miles out of San Luis Obispo CA. Thee are three nearby piers starting in...More

First time here and we enjoyed our evening. The location is great, particularly as the sun sets. It's best to park off the pier and walk to the restaurant—there aren't a lot of parking spots on the pier, and the walk is nice. The tables...More

Had lunch at Olde Port Inn and it was good but nothing to shout about. Service was fair, portions were rather small and food was good but nothing special. Out on the pier location is nice but parking on the pier is hard to come...More

Terribly pricey. Had half a crab sandwich for $15.00, no taste at all. The deal was the calamari steak strips as an appetizer, they were excellent. Nice view from enclosed porch.

Food wasn't that great considering it was on the pier. We were expecting a great seafood dinner but was disappointed. I didn't even eat much of my fish and they took some off the bill. The service wasn't that great either.

It is an old port which you can go for a nice walk, buy seafood for a very good price, enjoy the views and take many pictures. We had 12 oysters for 14 dollars!!!
