Willow Restaurants opens a second location serving coastal cuisine and craft cocktails in Pismo Beach.

Locals and tourists are happy to welcome the opening of a new restaurant and bar located at the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel in Pismo Beach, in what was previously Marie Callender’s for over 25 years. With spectacular ocean and pier views, and over 7,000 square feet of open space, Willow Kitchen & Cocktails boasts a 24-seat bar with five sports TVs and over 40 tables for diners, serving coastal cuisine, craft cocktails, and local beers and wines.

Justin Bruner, General Manager, says, “This gigantic space has undergone some major renovations over the last year and a half. Seeing the space transform has been a journey and we are excited to finally bring our local coastal menu to Pismo Beach. Our live music and themed nights like ‘Burgers. Brews. Bourbon.’ and ‘Family Style BBQ night’ will add an element of fun for everyone.”

Executive Chef, Jeff Hawxhurst, has achieved the ideal California coastal cuisine experience with menus featuring Kumiai oysters, tuna poke, clam chowder, and lobster rolls. Seafood is not their only specialty, also presenting an impressive bar menu with lamb sliders, truffle fries, pan pizzas, and fish tacos. On the dinner menu, smoked bone-in prime rib, diver scallops and Alaskan King Crab create the perfect surf and turf combo. Bartenders are serving local beer and wines, and barrel aged cocktails, like the “Willow Smash” with bourbon, seasonal fruit, fresh lemon juice and fresh mint.

Willow Kitchen & Cocktails is currently serving a limited menu with doors opening at 11am as they perfect their craft. They have future plans to serve a weekend brunch on both Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-3pm. The Willow Restaurants team is also excited to feature live music and themed cuisine nights during the week, with happy hour specials Mondays through Thursdays from 3-6pm and late night happy hour from 9-11pm. Lunch is served daily from 11am-3pm and dinner is served from 5-10pm. The massive bar closes at midnight every night with bar food available until 11pm. The espresso counter and deli will soon be open at 11am, serving tasty grab-and-go items all day until 5pm.

The restaurant building also contains a 2,400 square foot newly renovated banquet room where Willow Restaurants will serve a locally inspired catering menu, ideal for special events and holiday parties.

Restaurant reservations can be made on Open Table or by calling 805-295-5151.

Willow Kitchen & Cocktails is located at 2131 Price Street, Pismo Beach, California, 93449 and is managed by Willow Restaurants.
