Pismo Beach - Foodie Advice Needed!

Pennifer | | May 23, 2012 09:37 PM

Hi, Chowhounders!

My husband and I are taking our 1st real vacation, sans kid, in 2 years, and could not be more excited. We will be spending 3 nights in Pismo Beach. We've been to the area before and are familiar with some restaurants.

We are pretty set for lunch joints, with Splash, Mo's Smokehouse and Chacho's (actually in Oceano, but very close) all some of our favorite places to eat.

It's mostly dinner places we'd love some recommendations for. We will probably return to Rosa's Ristorante Italiano, which we ate at last time we were in town and very much enjoyed. We will proably NOT return to Steamers which was somewhat disappointing.

I read some reviews of a place called the Cracked Crab (I love seafood in general, crab in particular), and it sounds worth trying but the reviews were a bit mixed. Anyone have anything to add about Cracked Crab?

We don't mind driving about 15 or 20 minutes for a great dinner, so it doesn't have to be in Pismo proper.

Hit me with all your best ideas, please!

Thank you so much!
