Looking for a fun place with an excellent view in Pismo Beach? Look no further than Pismo’s newest hotspot at Willow located at 2131 Price St. This building used to be the old Marie Calendars right in front of the Sea Crest Hotel. The new owners have done a complete remodel that is so inviting and a well thought out space for dining, drinking, listening to live music all while looking over the breathtaking Pacific Ocean. They have a nice grab and go market as soon as you walk in where you can pick up your favorite beer and wine and gourmet take out.
Willow has a fully stocked quality bar featuring some smaller artisan producers. They have cocktails on tap like Moscow Mules, Margaritas and barrel-aged cocktails. I really enjoy sitting at Willow’s bar and talking with their great bartenders that are attentive and know how to mix a delicious drink. Willow has the largest bar in Pismo Beach. There are flat screen TVs to catch all your favorite sports games.
Hours at Willow are 11am-Midnight every day. You can catch their happy hour daily from 3pm-6pm and order off their small bite-happy hour menu that includes yummy dishes like pork belly tacos, Bavarian pretzel and cheese dip, Truffle or Chowder Fries, Prime Rib Deviled Eggs, and Fish Tacos. They also have a late night Happy Hour from 9pm-Midnight, Sunday-Thursday.
Willow has brunch, lunch and dinner menus as well. You can go and have a casual meal or dine on one of their scrumptious steaks, lobster tails, Diver Scallops, Brick Chicken, Farmer’s Market Linguini or Pork Oso Bucco. I love every meal I have had at Willow. I particularly love their oysters on a half shell. The presentation has freshly shucked oysters on a bed of black river rocks with a little seaweed garnish with dipping sauces on the side. I want to order one every time I walk in their door
Next time you are in Pismo, stop by, say hello, enjoy a meal and their amazing drinks and you will be hooked. For more info on Willow: http://www.pismo.willowrestaurants.com/ or call 805-295-5151
