We just had a fantastic dinner party for a group of 13 at the Ocean Grill. We were in the area for a wedding and wanted a place to celebrate a birthday the night before. They gave us an amazing table for a beautiful sunset and the staff/service were wonderful. We all agreed the food was very good and highly recommend!!

Great dinner at this awesome restaurant across the street from beach. Pork belly Scallops are to die for!

Nothing really special here. Everything we tried was okay, but nothing to write home about. It's convenient if you're staying in Avila Beach, but don't bother going out of your way to find it.

You know a place has set a hook in you when one item on the menu brings you back multiple times. For me, that’s the clam chowder at Ocean Grill. It’s outstanding. First time here, my wife and I shared a bowl. There’s no sharing anymore. We each order our own. Of all the clam chowder available on the Central Coast, this is the best I’ve had so far. I highly recommend it.

On this visit I followed with the shrimp salad. It was excellent — fresh and topped with a great carrot ginger vinaigrette dressing. My wife followed with the beet salad, which she thoroughly enjoyed, too. We both enjoyed an excellent red blend wine from their impressive wine list.

It’s very hard to beat the view here — especially at sunset — it might be the best in Avila. The service is always excellent — friendly and attentive.

We will return.

Popped in here on a Sunday lunchtime. Weather was stunning, and the welcome was too.

Great service, amazing food and a great view/setting out to the sea.

Worth stopping!
