Stopped in for a bite to eat - our first time to Pismo Beach. Service was good - affordable pricing and really good flatbread. Close to the beach and pier - away from the main route traffic which was nice.

The Boardroom is a great place in Pismo to grab a beer and hang out. The bartenders have a great knowledge of beer and it was great to try some new beers based off their recommendations. Friendly and knowledgeable.

Great beer and great food. We love this place. Everyone here is beer smart and they are super friendly and very helpful. The ocean view is incredible and the owners make you feel like you are a regular even if it is your first visit. Dont skip this place.

Awesome beer selection and some wines for my wife. Nice little snacks. Several TV's for sports. Relaxing stop for a beer and a glass of wine.

I stop in here often. I don't drink so I cannot comment on the beer although some of my friends love their selection. The atmosphere is fun and laid back. The pub grub is great and a good price. It's my favorite spot to hangout in Pismo.

My wife and I enjoyed eating at the Boardroom Surf Pub. The food was very good: I had their olive and feta cheese pizza, and my wife had their Caprese panini. Plus they have a fine beer selection including Ayinger Ur-Weiss, one of my favorites. I highly recommend the Boardroom. Next time at Pismo Beach, I'll revisit the Boardroom.

We stopped by because of the great reviews. It seemed like the bartender and the other person who could have been on duty -not sure - were there to hang out with the guys at the bar. They noticed us after awhile and we got beers. We skipped dinner and went somewhere else. It felt like a locals only kind... More

Just a few steps from the beach and pier. Beer and wine pub with lots of choices. Food is good with small menu. Sports bar atmosphere. Parking free after 6 PM. Well worth a try.

Great Beer and Location. Very nice atmosphere. Food was horrible. Hamburger was overcooked, Chicken tenders must have been from Costco. Maybe (according to the other reviews) pizza is the way to go.

Tired of kids, sand and wind? Take an adult timeout just steps from the pier. Ideal for catching a cold brew ( impressive selection and knowledgeable laid back staff will happily recommend something new), a light bite and a game on TV or just some good people-watching conversation. No loud music or pool tables but a great little spot for... More
