daughter and husband chose this place because they wanted burgers and a livelier atmosphere than we found at a couple other places in downtown Pismo Beach. Service was good. Shakes were awesome but not cheap. Burger was very good as were the onion rings. Nothing outstanding, but better than average hence the rating given. It did meet our expectations so we were not disappointed with the choice. Service was quick too.

This was my first visit to Cool Cat, whereas everyone else in my family has been several times. Our kids love it. The diner-like setting, near the water, perfectly fits the role of a California beach restaurant. We had no trouble getting seated on a Saturday afternoon. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. There were TVs for the sports fans.

Four of the five of us opted for one of their delicious burgers or chicken sandwiches. Based on how much we enjoyed them, I don’t think you can miss the mark here in those sections of the menu. We had a Marilyn Burger, Luna Burger, Great Balls of Fire Chicken Sandwich and a Lahaina Luna Chicken Burger. The fifth and youngest member of our group had the Mixed Combo of chicken strips, fries and onion rings. Sides of chili, fries and onion rings suited everyone just fine. The food was generous in size, prepared just right and very tasty.

We finished by sharing a couple of Vanilla Oreo shakes with chocolate syrup and a Vanilla Butterfinger shake. They were perfect—no one left a drop. Nice discovery for me!

First and only night in Pismo tonight and this was the first place that came up for suggestions for dinner and we are so glad it was! A 5 minute walk from our hotel, seated instantly, service was great and food was to die for! All in all, one of the best places we have been in the US so far!

Went during clam festival on a Saturday evening I order a hamburger & fries. Hamburger was very juicy loved that it had thousand island dressing in it. Fries had season salt so made them more yummy. I'm not a fan of their onion rings. Had a michelada which wasn't my favorite either use salt around the rim instead of tajin. Service was good and employees were very friendly atmosphere was great!! I definitely good back.

Three of us enjoyed a quick lunch here while a local parade went by outside.The 50s diner-ish food was fresh and well-executed. We had a sliced turkey breast sandwich with excellent onion rings, a beefy & spicy homemade chili in a bread bowl — which came with grated cheese, diced red onions, and a buttered and toasted lid — and a classic hamburger. The “side” salad for the burger was huge and filled with crisp fresh mixed greens, croutons, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes. We were curious about the custom ice cream shakes — boozy or not — but too full to try one. All of the staff service was bright and friendly.
