The fish and chips were especially good as was the clam chowder. Service for our group of 7 was very efficient and friendly and separate checks was not a problem. Some if the group had the tri-tip sandwich and loved it.

My wife and I ate outside at Brad's on the patio. Nice environment. My wife had fried fish and I had fried shrimp. Both were OK. We also had fried poppers, which tasted freezer-burned and were not so good. The service was good except the server told us the poppers were house-made, which they were not.

Went about 2pm so service wasn't top notch but the calamari & salmon was amazing. Kids had the fish and chips and they loved it also.

We had passed Brad's several times over 2 or 3 days and it was either packed with people waiting or virtually empty when other places were busy. Strange but useful when we wanted to have dinner and it was very quiet. The food was good, obviously fish based, the service was fine and the price was OK. Brad's won't 'knock... More

This is a family owned restaurant that has been in business for many, many years and specializes in seafood. I had the broiled seafood combo which sounded better than it tasted. It was Ok. The service was slow.

Two cups of chowder and splitting the seafood salad filled up both hubby and I completely. Soup was creamy, tasty and full of clams. Salad was crisp, plenty for two people, big shrimp and salad shrimp, crab, avocado, tomato, very good dressing and bread. We enjoyed the friendly waitstaff and service was excellent. They do have great prices on senior... More

Wanted to eat at splash cafe but the line was around the door. So we went to Brads instead. Ordered the clam chowder which I thought was Unbelievably good. If the place across the streets is better I cant see how. NO wait, quick service great food. Everyone in our party was happy including the picky 3 year old.

Brad's is the only restaurant near the Pismo pier that is open for breakfast. You can find coffee and pastries at a couple of places but this is the only place with a full menu. The service was good and food is well priced. They offer a good selection of omelettes, pancakes, waffles and egg dishes. The staff is pleasant... More
