Fish is a favorite menu item although they have a full menu. Clean, located in the Big-K Shopping Center, plenty of parking.

We enjoyed eating at the Quarterdeck. The service was attentive and the food was very good. I had the light eaters plate and it was more enough for me. The clam chowder was especially good. It was good value for the price.

Arroyo Grande is about 2 miles south of Pismo Beach and east of Grover Beach along highway 101 Also check out Avilla Beach just North of Pismo Beach and Morro Bay north of Pismo is a nice place too! Have a great time!!
